After work on Monday (right before Hurricane Sandy really started making a mess of things), I ran to Petsmart for new toys for Lucy (see this post for an explanation of Lucy’s history with her toys). I was not about to be potentially stuck inside for a few days with a dog that had no toys! I bought her usual pink elephant and two pink pigs: one was more of a plastic material and the other was stuffed. Here was the rundown of the afternoon/evening:
3:00 p.m. – Give Lucy plastic-type pig
3:30 p.m. – Lucy has ripped tail off pig and ingested said tail
4:30 p.m. – Give Lucy new pink elephant
5:00 p.m. – Lucy has ripped fur off of elephant’s ears
7:00 p.m. – Give Lucy new stuffed pink pig
That pig is actually still kicking (mostly because I took it away before she could destroy her third toy of the day). After she was done chewing it and chasing it around the floor, it joined us on the couch.
She and her pig then watched a bit of TV…
And then as usual, she got sick of me snapping photos of her (even after I wrapped her in a blanket to stay warm!).
