  • He's in so much trouble!!!!

    umm, my dog didnt eat chocolate or anything, but if my husband catches him he is gonna be in rough shape. You see I just got home from work and my baby cocker (hes 6 mos), well, he ate my husbands shoes. My husband put him in the kitchen as usual. And he always puts his steel toed, 100 dollar, leather workboots by the backdoor. Umm, my puppy ate them. Not the steel toe, just the top leathery parts. My hubbie is in bed but when he gets up (b4 me), watch out. This dog hasnt chewed anything before now, but oh well. His boss buys him new shoes every year, so that helps. He is due another pair by now, thank god, but he was hoping to get new sneakers so he is not going to be happy. Fortunately Andre (the puppy) is such a charmer, he will find a way out of it, lol. If not, his momma is here!!! LOL!! Pray for him!!!

    Well, I hope your husband doesn't think it's okay to punish the pup so long after the fact! If he does, I hope you don't let him! The puppy will have absolutely NO idea what it did, or why it was wrong, etc. Maybe this will teach your husband a lesson about leaving important things down where the puppy can get to them. Why is the puppy out wandering unsupervised when you're not home, anyway? Does he have plenty of acceptable chewies and toys to play with? You're lucky he didn't chew an electrical cord or get into something else that could have hurt him...

      Oh boy, Andre better hide when Dad gets up in the morning. We've lost more shoes and boots than I can count. The worst part is the one that's doing all the chewing is 14.

        Teething pups and ? 14 yr olds..lol... When the boot crises is over, here are a few things that will ease the pups gums and your husbands shoes, elec. cords, etc...
        1. Take an old wash rag or kitchen towel/hand towel, wet it, wring it out and keep it in that form, freeze it. (supervise, dont let pup eat towel)..lol..

        2. You can also take rubber chew toys and put them in the freezer also.

          I can totally relate. The other day my BF put his laptop on the counter and plugged it in to be charged and you guessed it, I watched helplessly as they ran into the cord which pulled the laptop down to the floor. EEK! I was horrified to tell him and waited nervously until he could see if it was OK. He was really upset but is a good guy so wasn't too hard on us.

            I've been looking for one of my grooming shoes for over 2 weeks. My poodles have really hidden it well. In the interim I've been using one of my good shoes (Clark's) to groom in. Well, I fell asleep on the sofa last night. When I woke up, each of my poodles had one of the Clark shoes. They were chewing away ... I was not a happy camper.

              Worn out leather smells sooooo good to puppies and even older dogs. We have had many leather leashes chewed up, I just think they love the smell of them and they are nice and soft.
              Poor dad will have to get new boots I guess.

                Poor baby, I want to come and give him a hug. Tell dad to be nice because Andre is just a baby.

                  Shouldn't be mad at the pup.

                  I like the line (gee did Helly put that in) that says you can train your puppy by a rolled up newspaper. When the pup chews something up or pees in the house take the rolled up newspaper and smack yourself for not keeping an eye on the puppy. My 10 month old has gotten a hold of several things, but Iknow it was my fault, say typing on Groomer Talk message board instead of watching the youngster totally. Perhaps he'll not leave his shoes in the "safe" kitchen with a teething pup.
                  Money will buy you a pretty good dog but it won't buy the wag of it's tail.

                    carrots are also wonderful and healthy for teething puppies
                    If your dog is fat, you are not getting enough exercise!

                      Too bad you can't run out and buy another pair at a 24 hour store, to save the pup from your husbands wrath. lol (only kidding). Sometimes we just don't think about what they might be able to get into even when they're right in front of us. It sounds to me like your puppy is confined to the kitchen so he can't get into things. I know in my kitchen its surrounded by cabinets and there is absolutely nothing a puppy could get into unless we put it on the floor (unless of course the puppy took to chewing on the cabinets . The puppy probably smelled your husband's scent in the shoes and that's comforting to the pup.
                      don't find yourself up a creek without a poodle.

                        How to correct a puppy using a news paper. Take news paper and fold it up so it fits neatly in your hand. Go get puppy (Don't call him to you). Take puppy to area where offense occured. Now hit yourself over the head repeatedly while saying "I forgot to watch my puppy. I forgot to watch my puppy."

                        Sounds like the wrong culprit is going to be in trouble.

                          I'm sure once your husband sees his little face all will be forgiven. My fiance is a 6'4" truck driver, and he looks pretty mean. When our Shih Tzu Jack does anything wrong, all he has to do is give him those puppy eyes and he melts. It doesn't help much that I'm the tough one and I'm only 5'4". I laugh when I see this big guy completly whipped by this little puppy. He gives him more kisses and attention then he gives me! lol

                              Umm, well actually all cords are up out of the way, I have kids too and I dont want anyone getting hurt. My husband probably was not happy when he got up, but he would never hurt anything or anyone. He just isnt like that. But he will be mad, as anyone would be, I am sure. He wasnt wandering, he was locked in our kitchen which is relatively small, and is babyproof, and fairly puppyproof(he isnt gonna get hurt on anything). He wasnt locked in a kennel because I wasnt gonna be gone long after he went to bed. He has more toys than my kids do, I think. Just kidding. But he has a ton. He just wanted to chew daddy's shoes that was all, they are leather, and they smell like sausage(he works at gianelli sausage/dino BBQ). And I tell him ALL THE TIME TO PICK STUFF UP!!! What wife doesnt LOL!!! But I am still training everybody. LOL. Including myself at times. Oh well, you live you learn right. I just wanted to clarify that noone in this house is in a position to get hurt!!! I just thought it was an interesting story.
