There was a knock on the door: “Who’s there”, I woofed.
It was the UPS guy with a package.
It was for ME! I got a package just for ME.
I think I can get it open if I chew right here.
So, what did I get?
My new Timberwolf purple leash! And what’s that? A new ball!!!
I can get that out of there, I know I can.
Ahhhh. It feels good on the teeth. That was nice of Bark ‘n Purr to send me a ball too!
I can’t wait to wear my new leash.
I try really hard not too, but sometimes I just have to chew on leashes. It feels so good–like the ball.
I hope I don’t chew this one up……
And guess who likes the box!
Everyone is happy!!
Or so they thought. Today, I proved that theory wrong yet again. Let me tell you what happened.
When I go out on the town, or to the dog park, I wear this really nice leash that had been Maggie’s–you know she was my sister who went over the Rainbow Bridge. Well, it was made by Timberwolf and the leash is a double-braided 7/16″ round nylon rope with a nice handle for Mom or Dad. I’ve tried chewing on it, like I did those silly old flat nylon ones, but never got anywhere. Those flat ones are a snap! Just let me have one and I’ll show you how fast I can chew through it.
Well, I was secretly chewing on my Timberwolf one while Mom and Dad were away. My petsitter didn’t know and I didn’t tell her. I did it while she was taking us to the dog park. Anyhow, there’s some cording where the leash is attached to the metal hook, so I concentrated on that part. I figured that if there was any way to do it, it was there. And bingo! I did it.
Mom opened the door at the park this morning and there I was–no leash! I was proud, but I don’t think Mom was too happy. She had to put Toby’s leash on me and Toby got to go without. NO FAIR.
I heard Mom ordering me a new one. She said it was purple! Just like my harness!! I wonder how long this one will last? Mom said it had better last forever. We’ll see…..
Oh, one more thing, I heard Mom say she was changing my name to Destructo.

Well, I told you I’d finish this story. I didn’t want to wait because I might forget something. I’m pretty smart, if I do say so myself, but Mom says I still have a lot to learn.
That's Toby II & me
That's me at the D River. And that's the ocean out there.
I learned about the “D” River that second day at the ocean. It was pretty puny when we were there, but it was early in the morning. So early, no one else was on the beach. Well, almost no one. Toby II and I checked out this river. Mom let me go in it–she said the water was fresh, or at least fresher than the ocean. But it wasn’t very deep. And there was a huge stump we got to climb! That was fun.
Mom said I still had to wear a leash. Mom was on the ball, even that early in the morning. She had a really long leash; a really, really long one–30 whole feet! It’s almost like I’m free! Except when I get to racing, then I have to stop really quick. Toby II had one too, so we thought we were pretty special!
We had two walks on that beach that day. My Dad came on the second one–he said he had to stay in bed for the first one. Didn’t he know what he was missing? ME. He said he was missing sleep because of me. What did I do?
Me, Toby and Toby II.
I saw some ducks in the ocean. Mom said it was a tidal pool. I say ocean. I still can’t get in it, so who cares?
We thought they were gulls, but they flew away when we got close. They were ducks! Oregon DUCKS !! Silly ducks. Why didn’t they wait for me?
That day was my Mom’s birthday, so I had to be extra good. She told me so. And I WAS! I was so good! That was my birthday present to her. I thought it was a really good one. Don’t you?
Maybe we can go back? I hope so……
