I must be doing something right with these dogs.

I settled all the dogs in with some marrow bones. Sherman is tethered when I can't watch him 100% because he's a resource guarder and will also take whatever he wants from the girls.

Everyone has to "chew" on their towel. Sherman is really good about staying on his towel and when I say "get on your towel!" if he's inching toward the outside, he gives a Grrrump! And moves his butt onto the towel. Lola likes to drag her bone all over the place & it makes me nuts. Marrow bones are gross! So tonight she takes her bone into the bedroom and starts chewing on the rug. I say "Lola, go get on your towel" and turn to get a kleenex to pick the icky thing up & direct her where I want her to be. When I turn around, she is carrying her bone back to her towel! No way!

I tested her again when the bone was about 1/2 inch away from the edge of the towel. Again, when I asked, she picked up the bone & moved it to the center of the towel. What a good girl!

"Marrow bones are yummy!!"

Oh I love those marrow bones too!! The oily marrow inside is soooo yummy, and then I go and rub my face all over mummy's bed or in between her legs. It doesn't drive her nuts, it drives her silent..... (which is never good).

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Hey Miss S! Thanks for dropping by!

Yes we love the marrow too. It makes funny sounds come out of our butts! And Mom loves the way the sounds smell. It makes her go Eeewwwww! Which is a good thing, right?
