The demon shoe-eater

It’s hard to believe that this little chap..

looked this just a few weeks ago..

In a very short time he has become one of the more endearing aspects of the farm, as if 280 lambs weren’t enough. Don’t be taken in though. It may not seem like it, but but all this joie de vivre hides a darker side. This is a dog on a mission – cute enough to break your heart one moment…

and your piggy bank the next..

What is it about dogs and new shoes?

Lucky they were sill attached to my feet at the time. In a few days, I’ll probably have to start searching the surrounding fields for a water-logged left shoe, with missing sole, chewed-out laces and extra breathing room for toes.

If anyone finds it, please let me know.

    You’re lucky, my three eat the furniture!

  3. LOL! Cait’s puppy, Wink, has eaten a few hundred dollars worth of Andrew’s shoes. I know better and put all mine up on a shelf out of reach!

    Oh, this isn’t helping my longing for a dog. Nope, not one little bit. Looks like I’m going to bug my husband again with my please for a pet once again.

    He’s so cute. We got a dog last year, but she’s no longer a puppy.
    I still think about you every time I eat an apple, wondering if it came from your place…..
