Snow Day to Chew On

DSC_7854

It’s been a big day! Not only has over a foot of snow fallen and Galina’s been doing plenty of swimming in it, but today, Galina got her first package! Of all days! Kudos to our mail lady – she’s the bomb.

Galina’s package came from a friend in Delaware, a dog named Peyton, who read about her penchant for chewing and her woefully unsupDSC_7853plied (and unsuspecting) foster family and sent her three mega chew toys.

These are heavy duty. She won’t be destroying these babies any time soon. In fact, as I listen to her this very moment working on the “Jr. Ring” I worry for her little teeth. She’s giving it her best shot.DSC_7862

The timing couldn’t have been better since this morning Galina finished off what another dog started and condemned our worn out ottoman to the curb.DSC_7842

I look at it as helpful. I’ve been wanting some new furniture, and she’s just moving the process along.

Gracie was equally excited to receive the toys and shared in the spoils, claiming the shark for her own.DSC_7875

Just in the past few days the two dogs have become bossum buddies. They wrestle for long periods of time and then sleep it off side by side. DSC_7836

A new transport of dogs is arriving tomorrow night and there’s a dog on the list I really, really want to foster, but I’m trying to apply some discipline to this endeavor. I do feel a little like a junkie, telling myself “I can handle it….just one more dog.” But we have only one crate and Galina has taught us a very important lesson about fostering – you truly don’t know what you’re in for. That said, I can’t risk my furniture or my relationship with my husband on another chewer.
