well today brought more dog drama.. I had ordered some books. The post office dropped them off on my front porch swing. (their mistake). You get it now.. The dogs ate the books, box and everything else they could chew on. There went another $50. Tomorrow my bro-in-law is picking them up.

And no my daughter want hate me. She understands the problems. She will get another dog soon anyway.

Would anyone like a pic of the box?? I can hook you up with that..

I hate to ruffle the boss's feathers and i know your upset but thats what puppies do.certain breeds are worse than others but unless totally supervised they will get into trouble.You do what you think is best its your home but i think when you took in two puppies you took in the problems that come with it.Unless of course your trying to send a message to your kids"mess up and i ship ya out to the army/boarding school"

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.

And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Yeah... The 4 wheeler seat just threw me over the top though.. I will find me a little older dog next time.

My daughter likes this collie/pointer mix that we can get.. Seems like a semi smart dog. That may be our next one. All the puppy is out of this one.

the downside to a older dog/pup is somebody taught/allowed bad habits to develop.I've had dogs my whole life till recently and any dog can be trained.It takes time and patience .Are they pure breeds or pound dogs?why did ya get them in the first place?(hunting,daddy i want it friend had litter,etc)just curious .Again your house your rules but don't let emotions rush your decision.after all and i hate to say it but"What would Jesus do?"

Joel you really need some kids. The love you show for dogs could spoil the heck out of somw kids. Join the big brothers program or something. As far as the dogs I aint sure. I might be looking for a new dog too. After tearing stuff up at my house they just don't seem so cute and innocent anymore.

If you don't understand the technology which you depend on, you will soon be a victim of that technology.

I'm backing joel on this one! Dogs like kids, you wouldn' shoot your kids when they wreck the car or break a window or break a rule or spill grape juice on the carpet or knock a glass off the table or use crayons on the walls or leave a screwdriver in the lawn and you hit it with your new tractor blade or yes drive the 4-wheeler against the rules or get caught smoking things or drinking things they shouldn't. The facts are it takes kids up to 23 years to become adults and housebroken a good dog will do it in two years, and both will return love and conpanionship its just that dogs will do it for free - food, shots, tractor seats, carpet, shoes, couches, books ect. I have an adult son to give away free!!

Smile Please read Joel

Please don't misunderstand me Joel. I was saying that as a compliment. I have a love for dogs myself but I also have a temper. I can put up with most things that my kids would ever do because I'm only 36 and I refuse to grow up. A dog can only tear up so much at my house before it's gone. I don't agree with shooting them for being puppies but find them a better suited home. We don't have alot of free time at my house to train another dog but we have two and pigs and horses and etc. I didn't mean any disrespect, I was serious about you volunteering with kids that don't have someone as caring as you to come home to or for a mentor. Kids are missing way to much at home nowadays.

That hurts. But I have to stick up for the pups. I mean did anyone actually see them causing all this distruction? It might be the cat framing them.

Call me mean but I'm backing Buckfever on this one. Life is tough enough without worrying what you are going to come home to. I would not shoot them but they would have a new home address. I guess you could crate them while not at home but that kind of destruction would be too much for me.
