Well, it's official... Shaggy is a very stubborn dog. I've been out of town on business for a couple of weeks and also away for a week of vacation so it's been awhile since I posted. Allot can happen in a very short time with Shaggy. So, here is the short version -
1st - Shaggy got kicked out of obedience school (where he was also being boarded while we were out of town) He chewed up two cages (one of them metal) - chewed through 2 leashes - chewed the legs off of an 8"ft ladder and only wanted to chase the girl dogs around at the trainers. After 10 days of destruction, the trainer called and told us to pick Shaggy up that he is too stubborn to work with and that Shaggy was interfering with the other dogs training. The trainer said that he is extremely intelligent and intentionally disobeying him. The trainer knew we were on vacation so he had to wait until we got back. -
2nd - The first day that I had to leave, I put him in the inside of the barn (like I normally do so he has plenty of room to roam). What happened next can only be described as an intentional, calculated plan to seek revenge for the 10 days that he was away... get ready... here is the list of very bad things that Shaggy did... * He got into the bathroom we've been building, chewed a hole in the wall, tore the mecca shade off the window and chewed holes in it, chewed the bottom of the new door. * He chewed the cord off of the freezer - yes the FULL freezer (not the one that was empty - how did he know??) he is very lucky he didn't get electrocuted! * Chewed two tennis shoes up - chewed a hole in the golf club bag. * pulled all of the paper towels off the top shelf in the laundry room and chewed them all over the inside of the barn along with all of the toilet paper!
3rd and Final --- When I got home to let him out, I screamed - he ran straight for the pond, jumped in, got all wet and then quickly ran over the the neighbors pasture and rolled in cow poop! In the picture, that is NOT MUD on his face!
For the record, after giving Shaggy a bath and taking him to the Vet, nothing dangerous was found in his tummy. Which means that he just set out to chew things and make a big mess!
Yes, I still love my Shaggy and he still lives with us. He is acting all innocent and sweet right now, like he has not idea who tore up the barn and the trainers place. And, he still doesn't have any manners.
