Chicken's Big Party

Little Chicken is a bad dog. Sweet, sweet, sweet - but not to be trusted alone in the house. She is a chewer. :( The decision was made, after she chewed up a very expensive pair of my shoes, to put her outside every time we leave. Every time.

We did that last week, but then C had to come back for some reason and she snuck back in and did the "Home Alone" as we did evening chores.

This is what we came back to.For those of you counting at home, that is seven shoes. One of which - mine, of course - was chewed up pretty severely.

But what is all of that other stuff, you ask?

A zoom in reveals an expertly opened birthday gift, discarded it would seem, since Chicken's ears aren't pierced.

That gift (lovely seaglass earrings, one seen to the right of the boot) was beautifully wrapped with a nice bow (which we later found, intact in the dog bed) and pretty paper (seen here), around a sturdy, cotton-lined box (also pictured).
Bad, bad dog. But still-- a pretty impressive job for a girl without opposable thumbs.

For a long time, a scene like this presented itself far too often. Now the guilty ones (and you can tell who they are) are incarcerated each and every time we leave the house.

You evidently have a much cooler head than I do, to think about your camera upon returning.

Thanks for sharing! ;)

Phoebe still has to be on "lock down" when I go to work! Though we are finally at the point where she doesn't have to be on lock down at night, mostly because she now sleeps in my bed with me...
