Our dog, Bandit, is a 10-year-old Jack Russell with OCD. Her disorder is licking. She licks anything and everything. The carpet, the air, the floor, her bed. There is nothing that she won't try to lick. She likes to play, but she likes to chill and lick more.
Her favorite place to hang out is with me in my office. Sometimes she'll carry her bone in her mouth and try to lead me into my office when I'm not even going in there.
We had her spayed when she was a baby, so she never had any puppies. I like to buy her little stuffed toys and I call them her baby. I encourage her to love on her baby, trying to keep her busy and to, hopefully, keep her from licking. She'll carry it around in her mouth and put it in her bed for a day or two. You know, really loving on it. The next thing you know, she's pooping out her baby's stuffing.
That is until I found her Mini Me.
Today she's spending time with me in my office. She has her baby and her bone.
But guess what she's doing?
Oh, well , at least I tried.
Till next time...
