chewy lucy

lucy is now 7 months old [golden doodle]. she's a smart, curious, playful and good-natured pup but her habit of picking up anything and everything is driving me nuts! i mean she's like a shopvac and sucks up the tiniest things on the floor, on the table, on a chair, in the kids' hands... i spend more time in her mouth than her tongue does.

the last straw was a metal paper clip and she was "jailed" for that. luckily she doesn't mind her cage.

the little guy [18 months] pulls stuff down where lucy doesn't reach; and next thing you know, there goes another plastic spoon, a stuffy, a boot, a brush, a kleenex, etc ad infinitum. she has her own toys, but apparently prefers variety.

i worry about her getting hurt, otherwise she could "clean up" all day long.

any suggestions?

:worry:

I think all dogs indulge in that sort of behaviour. Maybe you should get her some of those chewy dog bones, things etc. I'm not sure of the exact name for it, but the supermarkets, drugstores, even the 'cheap' stores carry them.

she has all kinds! yet even after i've swept up, vacuumed, mopped and practically licked the floor clean, she STILL finds something i've missed!
