Trail of Destruction!

I've been trying to remember everything the puppies have destroyed over the last 9 months, but the list is so long I simply can't remember everything but here's what I can remember.

5 pairs of shoes
1 pair of sandals
1 pair of slippers
1 pair of flip flops
chewed through telephone cable (twice!)
chewed plug off table lamp.
chewed through hose pipe.
Max has chewed through 4 of Pepsi's collars (while he was wearing them!)
One pair of spectacles (not funny, cost £300 for a replacement!)
Dug out a patch of carpet 8" x 3" on the landing (after we had just found a buyer for the house!)
Chewed through several sections of the garden lighting wiring (see previous)
Stripped large patches of wallpaper from the kitchen and rear hall walls.
Totally shredded several complete rolls of toilet paper.
Dragged out Ians computer briefcase and chewed the zip pocket off as well as some of the contents including a calculator and various computer connections (fortunately the laptop wasn't in it at the time - phew!).
Bent the frame of the dog door.
Chewed up at least 3 door mats
Dug out a large potted palm leaving soil across a 10ft square area of carpet.
Pepsi knocked off and broke a beautiful Waterford crystal bowl that was on the lounge windowsill.

That's it for starters, I'll add more as I think of them.

Then of course there's all the expensive trips to the vet!

1) Pepsi sustains a suspected broken leg and needs x rays etc.
2) Consumption of a bag of foil covered chocolate coins necessitating a mad dash across town to see emergency vet on Christmas Eve to get their stomachs emptied (turns out it was Pepsi ate the lot and poor Max went through it for nothing!).
3) Pepsi splits his dew claw and has to have it removed.
4) Max develops rash and has to have antibiotics, cream and special shampoo.
5) We get Pepsi & Max deknackered to stop them humping each other! boy were they confused, especially Pepsi who used to hump Max's head!

Life is never boring with the boys!!!

Andrex Puppies!!!!!

Pepsi & Max have just come in from the garden filthy dirty and proceeded to trash the back lobby and adjoining bathroom. Not only have they liberally spread mud around, they've shredded a toilet roll they found in the bathroom and started redecorating by stripping off some of the wallpaper! I love that 'Who me?' expression on Pepsi's face, talk about butter not melting in the mouth!Posted by Hello

This is Max aged 4 months taken on 14/1/2005. He has got to be one of the most laid back dogs I know, if he was any more laid back he'd be horizontal. (which actually he is for much of the time, the only time he becomes really animated is at dinner time when he goes into a lovely little dance). If Pepsi didn't keep him on his toes and give him a good runaround several times a day he'd be a real little pudding. We weighed them both yesterday and Max was a pound heavier than Pepsi, despite him being 3 months younger!!!! We really have to watch him, he can finish off Dinner in 30 seconds flat (and frequently does, I've timed him!) and then goes after Pepsi's.Posted by Hello

Pepsi at 6 months old

Pepsi is a real sweetie, but if there is trouble, whether it be of the chewing , peeing, pooing or eating variety he is usually behind it! Posted by Hello
