Explanation: she is a dog with prey drive to release, and a primary means of release is chewingg.
Here’s a list of ways Lucy has released her prey drive this week (that are less than our ideals):
- Powerbook charger cable
- End table lamp power cord
- Scrabble box
- Numerous socks
- Our coffee table
- Our end table
- Our sofa pillows
- My ottoman
There are probably more, but I can’t remember them right now. Fortunately, I was able to repair the laptop cable (with only a loss of 6″ or so), and I had unplugged the lamp cord before she chewed on it.
Lucy now has parent-approved chewing items strewn throughout the house.
