Ziggy Gets In Trouble

Ziggy was sent home early from the adoption event yesterday for misbehavior.  He decided that he didn't like being around other dogs, so since we were at a pet store filled with dogs, he had to stay in his crate.  However once he started trying to destroy his crate, he left me no option but to send him home. 

I returned to the adoption event, while Ziggy took a nice long nap.  By the time I returned home again, I was exhausted and he was full of energy.  That is how this happened:

I knew what he was doing.  I had a large Great Dane sized crate in a box in my living room.  I heard him knock over the box and start chewing on it.  But I was so tired, and he was happy, and he wasn't hurting anything except some cardboard that is easily cleaned up.  So I decided I didn't care to stop him.  I went back to the kitchen and left him alone with the box.  Then Noelle decided to get in on the act. 

What'cha doing Ziggy?  That looks like fun!
 Remi took a supervisory role:

Quite impressive for a small doggie such as yourself.

That cardboard piece is longer than me! 

And finally I found something that kept Ziggy busy for almost 20 minutes!

 True, there's still a huge mess in my living room waiting to be cleaned up.  But the peace and quiet I got while he worked on destroying the box was totally worth it!

A little down time in exchange for some chewed up cardboard? Seems like a good trade-off, to me!

Looks like a great party to me. Plus now you don't have to open that box.

Boxes are just too much fun I guess... :) I hope Ziggy cleans up his act enough to get adopted soon. I'll be prayin' for ya!

If there is one thing I have learned in the last year, it is that peace and quiet are totally worth the mess!

Love these photos!

Why do dogs love to chew cardboard? Most of mine love it and the corners of all the boxes in the house have been chewed.

Ziggy, you don't want to find another home, do you. I think you've made your decision on where to live.

Lola has never gone after a box that big. But she does love paper towel and wrapping paper roles.

I think Ziggy's name should be trouble but hey if you get peace and quiet!
