Shredding Kleenex

First of all, before I start this post, I wanted to let you all know that the A-Z blog challenge has begun.  As you can see, I'm not doing it on this blog, but I am doing it on my other blog, Gone Gardening.  If you'd like, you can stop by and visit that blog, as well as click on the A-Z badge to visit other bloggers.

Now to the regularly scheduled programming.  It's been a while since you've had a dog report.  Mostly because he's been pretty good lately.  Today he wasn't so good.  Maybe it was his April Fools joke.

I was in the kitchen doing dishes.  All of a sudden, my daughter starts yelling, "No, Schultz!  Bad boy!"

I knew the dog was definitely up to something.

I walked into the family room.  The varmint had gotten a hold of a box of Kleenex.  He decided it would be great fun to shred that thing.  So what I found was a bunch of torn Kleenex and shredded box all over my floor.

"Schultz!" I bellowed.  "Quit eating the Kleenex!"

He cocked his head and looked at me.

"Yeah, you," I said. 

He knew he was in a bit of trouble, so he high-tailed it right into his crate, dragging along a piece of Kleenex in his mouth.

What's with that dog?  A couple weeks ago he was eating paper towels.  Now it's Kleenex.  Something isn't right with that.  I think I'm going to take him to a dog shrink.

  1. There are few things worse than trying to scrape up shredded kleenex from a carpet :-(

  3. We just got a little chihuahua (a nice one) - she's too little to shred much of anything. Good luck.

    1. Hopefully she won't ever want to shred anything!

  4. I think I'd rather deal with a dog that shreds kleenex, because I'm tired of dealing with a cat who wolfs down his food and the throws it up. Uggh!

  5. I don't envy you trying to clean up the shredded tissue.

  6. My cat used to shred toilet paper when she got left alone. Never at night or when we were outside. Just when we actually left the property to go somewhere.

    1. It sounds like she was a little upset about being left by herself! What a silly cat.

  8. Fiber, he's craving fiber... At least that's what I tell myself when MY dogs eat kleenex. And toilet paper. And napkins. Just be glad he doesn't eat his own poop. Yep, I know of which I speak.
