Dog Blog Post #786

Henry may be Precious, but he's not quite Perfect.

Photography Assignment

  • Daily Dog Challenge "295. Peccadilloes - Our dogs all have quirks and odd habits that we find either endearing or maddening. Take a picture of one of your dog's peccadilloes."
  • Our Daily Challenge - Aug 21, 2012 - "Begins with R"

The Plan

Hubby supplied the Idea Seed for the day, by suggesting "Ripped" as the answer to the riddle of how to combine the two challenges.

He (that is Henry, not Hubby) has the occasional inclination to chew himself to sleep on the corner of a pillow. In this case, it was his own big fluffy pillow, which no longer zippers closed because he ate (or at least removed) the end of it.

So far he's gone through at least... 9... sofa pillows, but who's counting. :)

While being weaned too early can cause that behavior, I happen to know he was not, so I guess he's still just a pup at heart.

The Problems

There were none.

I plopped Henry's fluffy pillow up onto the sofa, and he was on it.


Zachary was feeling a bit left out, and showed signs of photobombing, but...

The Solution

... tossing a few treats in the opposite direction every time Henry got his was enough to keep Zachary at bay.

I like that he's a pup at heart. Henry's corner chewing reminds me of the pups when I see them suckling in their sleep.

How Sam Sees It said...

He just needs his blankie - or in this case, it's a pillow!

He's precious, perfect or not; thanks for hopping! :)

Aww! I'm still not convinced it wasn't a cat or squirrel. Surely the Precious Puppy would never do such a thing! Look at that face. It's the face of innocence, I tell you!

Huh. Mine aren't chewers. They lick each other's ears. All the time. And the licking sound! Ew. But they have very clean ears.
