The Imelda Marcos of Pyrs

Gus has made himself right at home with us - it's like he lived here forever. For the most part he is excellently behaved - he even comes when called (unlike certain Malamutes I could name). If he has one vice, it's his love of shoes.

And I do mean LOVE:

ALL THESE ARE MINE I FOUND THEM THEY ARE MINE

He's very gentle with them - there's never a tooth mark anywhere, they're only a bit damp. He simply seems to enjoy moving them from one point to the other and arranging them in small collections. These he moved from their official spot by the front door to his favorite napping spot by the back door.

I HAVE PUT THESE WHERE THEY BELONG THIS IS MUCH BETTER NOW

It's great that he's such a good guard dog and all, but we're not quite sure how to explain to him that he's not supposed to guard shoes.

I AM GUARDING THIS SHOE YOU CANNOT HAVE IT

OR THIS ONE THIS ONE IS ALSO MINE

Fortunately he's not always stealing shoes. Sometimes he just looks cute and floofy...

Happy Floof!

  5. Oh the floof! What a good boy not chewing them up at least. It's cute that he moved the boots in pairs to the back door. :-)

  6. Haha! No one show my teeny dog this post. So far, his resource guarding is limited to dog toys. He doesn't want to play with them. He just doesn't want anyone else to, either. THEY GO THERE OK NO ONE MOVE THEM.

    1. Hahaha Elias does this too. He collects ALL THE TOYS and then he lays on them. Very effective.

    1. Only when you're not living it. If you're actually trying to find your shoes, it's not cute at all.

    1. You know, he hasn't touched the flipflops yet. Maybe he only likes expensive leather shoes?
