Frank and his first love

18 Jul

Brian’s mother, Zina, stopped by last weekend to meet her first grandson Frank, equipped with new toys. I swear between her and my mother, Frank is already a very spoiled boy. Interestingly enough, Frank isn’t really into toys. He’d much rather chew on the couch, my shoes, Brian’s shower scrub gloves, the wall, leaves and paper towels than his slew of toys. So when Zina arrived with the bag of toys I thought…good luck. She pulled out a monkey…nothing…a pig…he gave it one lick…a ball…he gave it a nudge…then she pulled out a teething ring that smelled of chicken and his eyes lit up. Truly they did. It was love at first sight. He immediately grabbed the little ring and started nawing at it. I saw a light at the end of the tunnel, maybe I wouldn’t have to be his constant play companion now that he had this!

Sadly, that is not what developed over the last ten days. He won’t actually chew it, instead he hides it around our home because he loves it so much. He always makes his move when he thinks nobody is watching and usually moves it every hour or so like it’s stolen goods and the police are on his ass. It’s love.

nope I think behind the shoes might be best.

    He’s burying it! Cholula still takes treats that she’s not ready to eat, pokes them into a corner behind a door, and scoops imaginary dirt over them with her nose, patting the “dirt” down on top of the treat. We find things in strange places, and when we catch her in the process, she gets weirded out and moves the treat to another spot to bury it… random doggie instinct!!

    Animals have such adorable and innocent, yet determined personalities. So cute. This made me smile. Thanks 🙂

    Lucy had the same reaction to a squeaky purple hippo! Sometimes the hippo gets stuck under the couch where Lucy can’t get to it, and she just lays on the floor and whines until someone gets it for her. Silly puppies.
