It Was Not I


Here’s a picture of the baby, in one of his favouritest rooms: the kitchen.

I would like to set the record straight: Fergus did not chew the bottom of that cupboard door.

You can see it’s been chewed by someone. But, despite all the colours of paint we used in this apartment, we never once painted the cupboard doors. And this door was painted after it was chewed.


(We won’t mention the corner baseboard at the foot of the stairs. )

    Aww, the little angel. He wouldn’t chew on a shoe, or a draw knob (or 3), or the carpet, or a beer can (full, fished out of a tub full of ice, during a party) or a lemon, or a hair brush. Well, that’s a short list of the chewing accomplishments amongst the doggie members of the family menagerie. Now just let me start on the cats…

    I think the lemon intrigues me the most, Livingisdetail — bleah! The hairbrush might be “memories of echidna”.
    Because you were away, might I draw your attention to a few earlier posts you may have missed?
    They’re Such Angels When They’re Asleep (couch and papasan decoration)
    She Won’t Want it Back Now (woolen slipper piece)
    Naughty, Naughty, Naughty (a double-play)
    And I think you were around during the Pine Cone Saga in the summer…

    Yes, Goodbear, his round hasn’t yet caught up to his long!

    I take it back. Your dogs are experts. The slipper (man), the couch (couldn’t run fast enough)and the beer thing too – Devil’s Pale Ale – brilliant.
    Love the memories of echidna. The lemons, well my parents have dogs (who I share when I’m there)and one is a beautiful dog called Zara. She removed four lemons, one by one (I suppose) from the fruitbowl, when no-one was watching. She then had a little chew on each one – very gently pierced the skin with her teeth and went on to the next. She left the lemons in various places about the yard, almost unblemished except for those careful piercings.

    Your remark needs explaining, Shelley. I had a hard time NOT picturing chunks of sweet potato for several hours after reading that post. Here, gentle readers, is a link to someone’s blog post setting out a dialogue between a dog and its human, with sweet potatoes playing supporting roles:

    I never suspected you for a moment, Dennis sweetie.

    Such a dainty dog is Zara, Livingisdetail! But you’re sure it wasn’t squirrels, or pythons, or something? No, I suppose not.

    Lol, Alyson! Luckily, they’re too short (in either direction) to countersurf.

    Thanks, S. Le!
