Toy Dilemma


I really empathized with this blog post that I came across on

"When they're young puppies, you may get away with an average rope or squeaky toy, but beware.... soon you'll be finding disemboweled duckies and shredded rope all over your living room.

Apart from being a nightmare to clean up, this kind of destruction can be dangerous to Fido, who will probably attempt to eat as much of the ruined toy as possible."

I feel like this is all I deal with lately. Zipsie destroyed 4 big stuffed toys this month, two of them being in the last 6 days. And when I say destroy, I mean DESTROY. Stuffing, fur, and squeakers all over the place. My wonderful roommate spent this weekend totally cleaning the apartment, vacuuming the couch, floor, chair. Everything looked pristine...for about four minutes. That's the amount of time it took Zipsie to tear off a rhinoceros's leg and pull the stuffing out.

Now as I mentioned, I really connected with part of that article I included above. But I feel the need to point out that this article was written by the owner of a Rottweiler and an Italian Mastiff. Have you seen my dog? She is neither. She can still fit on my lap. Her teeth don't even hurt when she catches my hand when we're playing.



"What is this?" you ask? Oh, it's the indestructible chew ring I bought her 24 hours prior to the picture being taken. What's left of it anyway. I'm sure we'll be seeing pink poop for the next few days.

Anyway, I just don't know what toys to give her anymore. And don't suggest more exercise. The rhino leg incident I told you about immediately proceeded a 2 1/2 mile walk.

Zipsie Updates


She's fully vaccinated, pretty much house-broken, and getting so big! We still get complimented every time we go on a walk about how cute she is, even though my mom thinks she's "getting a little funny-looking." :)
On Saturday she got her third, and final, set of vaccinations. If the shots weren't enough to tire her out, she then spent a few hours at Jen's house, playing with the kids in the yard. We got home and this is where she went... on her back, between the cushion and the back of the couch. She slept in this position for over an hour.

She loves sitting at our sliding glass door, looking at the cars, people, and dogs on the street. Every once in awhile, she gets the pleasure of watching a bird.

Also, she's now big enough for her normal collar to fit. And since she has her rabies tag that she needs to wear, I thought I'd try putting her name tag on her collar too. She acted like I was murdering her, biting me and running away from me, but eventually we got the new collar and tags on, and she pretty much ignores them now. Isn't she cute?

I'm sorry for the leave of absence. Would you forgive me if I told you I have a good excuse? Well, for the last week at least. I got a dog! A beautiful puppy named Zipsie. She's a Cocker Spaniel/Pomeranian mix, and Jamie and I drove down to Vegas over the holiday weekend to pick her up. She is challenging, funny, smart, tiring, and loveable. And since you're bound to ask eventually...her name is from a My Little Pony movie that Princess and I watched together about a year ago. :)
