Lambs to the Slaughter

Well, it seems we’re at that special age:

Within the last few weeks, Ace began totally destroying her stuffies. I know many dogs treat their toys in this manner almost immediately as puppies, but Ace didn’t seem to know her own strength until recently. Now, she will hold a stuffie down with her front paws, or sometimes stand on top of it, latch her mouth around a vulnerable limb, and pull upwards until it rips. She then excitedly begins gobbling up the stuffing and keeps eating it even while it chokes her. I explained we only get one bowel obstruction per calendar year covered by her pet insurance, but this seems not to phase her. Kids these days; humph!!

    Yes, that is typical boston behavior. My Frankie does the same thing. I think they have a rip and tear instinct somewhere.

    definitely BT behavior. šŸ™‚ However, ingesting the ‘guts’ is a no-no around here! We don’t have pet insurance and I surely don’t want Buddy getting obstructed! Gotta love these Bostons!

    • I don’t mind buying new toys, it’s the risk of obstruction that worries me. We watch her pretty closely, mostly because she’s so cute, but also to keep that stuffing out of her mouth.
