Please don't eat the Charmin

If you read my last blog entry, you already know that my dog, Bear, has some strange eating habits. He took them to new heights last week.

We work long and late hours during Masters week. Apparently, Bear didn't like me being away so he decided to retaliate for not getting enough love and attention.

He devoured an entire roll of toilet paper.

And, no, I don't mean chewed on or shredded it. I mean he ate the whole darn thing, roll and all. All that remained were a few tiny white specks on the bedroom carpet.

He's fine, by the way, not a bit worse for the wear.

On a related note, Sky (pictured), my 4-year-old lab/foxhound mix, went old-school and chewed the TV remote control into little pieces the night before.

Wait. Maybe it wasn't about me being gone after all. Maybe they were having a contest.

I think Bear won.

P.S.: I'll be posting the latest pet adoption video in our video section this evening. This week's video features some of the wonderful (and extremely cute) puppies and adult dogs available for adoption from Happy Tails Rescue in Appling.

That is much tamer than what my cat, Charlie, prefers. He enjoys the chase with chipmunks, but only devours the brains, often leaving the rest as a gift to us on our front porch. Must be a delicacy in cat land.

She has a blue eye and a brown eye. She can look pretty menacing but she's just a big baby.

Wow. That's gross! But at least it's sort of normal (in a food group kinda way).

I think my kids devoured a roll of toilet paper as well. They must be about the same age as the dog. None of the children are named Bear, but we do call one Monkey.
