Puppies who get into trouble!

One of the traditional things around here for a puppy to learn to play with and legally destroy is a cardboard tube out of a roll of TP or paper towels.  Imagine my delight at work when they transitioned from a normal size roll to one of those giant sized things!  The roll was a lot thicker and tougher and I thought it would resist squashing much better.  And it did!  But there was just one teeny tiny little problem.  Which has to do with a curious puppy:

I believe this is Freckle Nose (as opposed to Freckle, who has a freckle on the left side of his muzzle) who got into trouble.  So he wore this around for a while, never complaining about this thing stuck on his neck!  He reminded me of the women in Africa who wear multiple rings around their necks to make their necks look longer!
Freckle Nose is just fine and this particular toy has been removed from the play things they can have.  However, I did find a rather heavy duty short tube that they like that they haven't been able to get into trouble with at all, so they will have something tougher to play with.


  1. Even Stella didn't have the presence of mind to wear a TP tube around her neck. That's quite a feat, LOL!!

  2. The puppies are all adorable. When do they go to their new homes? Wish I could have a houseful of corgis too. Hope your weather is getting better. We are to have rain on Sunday but we really need it bad. AJ will not be too happy about it but he will get over it! We are ready for spring. I am really enjoying your blog. It is a nice break from studying to see what you are all up to. Phyllis in Oxford, NC
