Still Growing Fast

video

The more she grows, the more mischievous and disobedient Lucy is becoming. It's hard to believe how quickly she's grown since we picked her up just a few weeks ago, and I wrote about how well she was settling in! Lucy doesn't stop from dawn till dusk - I'm constantly trying to stop her from jumping on the furniture, pulling up the roses and digging holes in the lawn ~ and more than once I've caught her with her nose in the waste paper basket (she has a thing about paper tissues, for some reason). And we won't even mention how the toilet training is going ..... she certainly keeps me on my toes!!! Lucy has a basket full of puppy toys, balls, ropes, Kongs, teddies, chews and bones to play with, but nothing keeps her attention for more than a second or two. Unless, of course, it is chewing shoes, carpets and newspapers....

The video above shows her with one of her latest favourite toys - plastic bottles (this one was empty)!

  1. That is hilarious!! Well, at least one toy is cheap and makes such a wonderful noise! Oh yeah, all dogs love those tissues! She looks like an adorable handful! xo

  2. Sounds so familiar Erika! Alfie has eventually settled down and isn't so naughty now, but he still has a thing about tissues and will steal them from our pockets if he gets a chance!

  3. Thanks Cait & Dotty! It's good to know Lucy isn't the only pup with a thing about tissues, LOL, but I'm getting the impression from both of you that she won't grow out of it?!

  4. That bottle's a slippery sucker, but it looks like Lucy's got it mostly under control!

  5. I love reading the latest updates on Lucy's exploits! Jasper was crazy about white paper tissues too when he was little - he would try and grab any that he saw on the street as well as trying to steal them when I was cleaning up his little accidents! Funny though, he lost interest as he reached 1 yr old and became a sock thief instead!

  7. It's a good thing they are so cute! It seems like our dog was about two before he settled down out of his teenager phase.

  9. Great recording! Our little one loves tearing cardboard to bits, the inside of a toilet roll is still the very bestest thing to play with :-) (Makes a mess to pick up but she has soooo much fun!)
