Ears to You!

"My, what big eyes you have."
"The better to see you with my dear."

My neighbor has a new border in his home and as it turns out, it is one of the puppies from my daughter's boyfriend's dog's litter. See my blog on the birth here. This dog is one BIG dog. He is very strong and very much a puppy. Not the brightest bulb but he means well. I check in on him daily as he has become an indoor dog. The plants in the backyard were becoming play toys and let me just say, there are a lot of plants to get into. So inside he stays. However, the inside plants, one by one, have been trashed. The first group to go were a vase of silk flowers. Next, the live plants. The really big kind. I walked in one afternoon and the entire living room was covered in dirt and plant life. This has become a regular occurrence and I informed my neighbor that he was no longer allowed to have any plants at all. ((smirk))
I feel sorry for Bubba (yes, Bubba). He wants to be with someone at all times. He's lonely and is bored to death sitting around by himself all day with nothing to do. Funny thing though, one afternoon I took him out and ran him for a good 45 minutes, put him back in the house and low and behold, a few hours later, he had ripped up a chair.
"My, what big ears you have."
"The better to hear you with my dear."
"My what BIG TEETH you have."
"The better to EAT you with my dear!"
