Inchworm

Shelby, being the only dog in a house with no children thinks that all stuffed items with eyes are dog toys. I bought this stuffed inchworm for  my friend's newborn baby. Because this inchworm rattles and squeaks, Shelby thinks it's for her. I'm simply being mean by keeping it from her. She's been pacing around the table, and whimpering, probably because she's frustrated she can't reach it. Steven took pity on her, and picked her up for an introduction.


As you can see, Shelby tried to lick it. We pulled her away, since our friend would probably not appreciate a worm with dog slobber on it. Poor Shelby. We fed her some treats, and that will make her forget for a little while, but she'll come back and pine for the worm. She doesn't forget that easily.

I agree. She needs an inchworm. Forget the newborn who is too young to play with it anyway. Give the inchworm to Shelby.

funny story...but I just bought a gift for my friend's newborn human baby and I picked up a stuffed rattle for my pug baby while I was there. How can you deny a pug a new stuffed toy?

Our pug, Jack, thinks all toys belong to him. He's particularly entranced by my son's toys that crackle and rattle. Nevermind that Jack has a gazillion of his own, he wants them all. (Well, except for the plastic dog that barks the abcs.) My parents get plush toys for both of them now :).
