Caesar, Cicero, Hiram, and Brutus came to live with me when they were about 3 weeks old as foster pups (part of a litter of 13 dumped at the local animal shelter). No one ever wanted them so they are my boys. This was them at about 7 months old. Now they are a year old and about 70 pounds each. Through this year they have chewed and destroyed sheetrock, 4 pairs of shoes, fabric for a quilt I was making, seats on outdoor table chairs, footboard of a bed, telephone cord, computer mouse cord, no-line trifocals, lined trifocals, car bumper, flashlight, carpet in the back room (it is now just a dog room), numerous dog beds, azaleas, dwarf nandinas, mimosa, ,tablecloths, bedspread, miniblinds, mattress pad, garden hoses, soaker hoses, $100 electronic collar, new dog collars, and 7 chairs. They have also scratched up hood on car and throw up in car every time they have to go anywhere. They have torn down fences and have dug up huge areas of the yard. I still adore them.
Editor’s note: You are an amazing dog-mom! Keep up the good work!
