Apparently, Lillie Biscuit's "smart puppy" food (at Joe's request, I looked, but they don't make "dumb puppy" food) hasn't been providing enough fiber for her diet. So, she's been taking fiber supplements. In the form of our rugs...
Maybe we should have seen it coming, as she showed a fondness for the kitchen rug at a young age.
See that (mainly blue) rag rug in that picture (you have to click the link to see the picture)? It's gone. History.
Last Thursday, she shredded it. The entire rug. Shredded it and balled it up in the middle of the kitchen floor. I didn't get a picture, but it was laid to rest in the trash bin and collected last Friday morning.
Here's the (mostly red) replacement:
She obviously didn't get quite enough fiber, because she then nibbled on the pink flowered rug at the foot of Hannah Bear's bed:
She quickly moved on, and chewed a hole through the braided chenille rug at the front door:
And when I ventured downstairs (to throw the muddy-paw-print-covered comforter in the washing machine), I found this little rug that used to sit at the door to the garage:
"OK, Lillie - time to go outside!", where I found the mat that used to live on the covered deck, mangled in the side yard:
We can only hope that this phase is over, because all we have left (other than the new kitchen rug) are the mats in our bathrooms, two navy blue area rugs, and our family room wall-to-wall carpeting. And despite the word "pet" being smack dab in the middle of "carpeting", it's not for her.
