How To Keep A Puppy Quiet

Eddie, still technically a puppy for another two months sometimes can be quite annoying. He jumps up on you and scratches--yes we're trying to break him of this habit--and hops on your lap and licks you in the mouth before you have a chance to push him off. Nasty. Today I decided to take the day off, and I didn't want him bugging me. Y'know, wanting to go out every five minutes, and generally being a pest. So I stopped at the grocery store and got some little beef bones. Doggie pacifier! (Thanks Alex for the tip) He is happily upstairs chewing away and I am in the office calmly blogging with scratch-free legs.
I probably won't think it is such a good idea in a few hours when I am cleaning up "Dommit", (that's short for doggie vomit, also the word I say when I see it) but we're quiet for now!

I just realized as I was talking to Karli today that one year ago today we were basking on the beach in Hawaii. Man, I miss it.

Happy first anniversary Alex and Kaui!!! (a little late)

Friend, I feel your pain. How old, exactly is a dog when he is no longer a puppy? I'd like to know where we're at on the timeline.
Good luck with the beef bones (gag).

Yeah, that usually pacifies Nana for about 30 seconds. And when she's snarfed the treat, she's right back at the whimpering and poking me in the leg with her nose. And she's well past the puppy stage!

Poke poke poke...

I just have to say...
Cats don't do that kind of stuff. Lose the dog.

Well, I got my phone taken away because I was at a different place then what I had told my parents I would be. I was at the house I said I was at, but left to go to a differnt one. Now, I don't see how taking my phone away is going to help my parents locate me any better but maybe that is just me. By the way, I have no clue who you are, I just felt like I better comment you back. Seeing your profile I am guessing you are the secretary at Joey's church.
