Over the past few summers we’ve been having to replace sprinklers on a regular basis. The reason, some type of pest was chewing on the sprinklers and rendering them useless, but which pest was responsible? The other day, while spending some time out in our barren yard, it all became clear…
Obviously I missed a training opportunity and instead of telling her to stop (Goldie-dog was only getting her drink on, and not her chew) I took her picture. (I’ve never said my dogs were well behaved and perfectly trained. Afterall, there is a reason they both answer to the nickname Bratface.) But it was hot and the water straight from the hose was cool, who was I to deny her the pleasure of something cool to drink on a hot day? Even if she is a pest.
We used to have a squirrel that would eat the wires in my sister’s car.
…not nearly as cute.
I don’t know about that, squirrels are pretty cute. Although the chewed up wires aren’t so cute :S
