Free to good home.
One beautiful, black, Labrador X. Good with kids. Excellent guard dog, and very affectionate.
Also comes with the ability to jump on the roof in search of shoes (according to my almost three year old son.)
Unfortunately she may also eat said shoes. Therefore would be suitable to a woman or small girl who is addicted to buying shoes, has enough money to do so, and is running out of storage space. (I hope my MIL is reading this.)
I can not believe it is happened again. Anyone who read my Wordless Wednesday post would have seen my art with a pair of purple crocs, and some black shoe polish. It was my answer to a shoe buying dilemma that occurred from the dog eating Bailey’s last pair of crocs.
Well for whatever reason. Probably because he is a boy, Bailey decided yesterday, unbeknownst to me, that he would throw his purple/black shoes on to the roof. Possibly because he wanted an excuse to climb on the roof and look at the solar panels, which he is obsessed by at the moment. (Again, I’m assuming, because he is a boy.)
Except that because he is two (he’ll be three in nineteen sleeps, but that’s hardly the point,) he missed the roof, and obviously left them on the grass somewhere. Angel elatedly thought she had been gifted another pair of shoes, and promptly ate them.
This is our history of shoes this year.
First there were the light up transformer shoes. They were Bailey’s favourite. Until a fishing trip with dad muddied them, and they left them outside to dry. We woke up the next morning to Transformer carnage.
Then there were the replacement Ben 10 light up shoes. These were even better according to B2, who even gave them a little song. ‘Ben 10 shoes are really cool. Ben 10 shoes are really cool. Ben 10…’ you get the idea.
One of them got knocked out of the car late one night, and promptly devoured.
So we bought another pair of Ben10 shoes. Same size, same colour, same everything, because I still had one good one. I don’t know really what happened here, but I went out one night and when I came home I tripped over something dark in the driveway. It was a chewed Ben 10 shoe.
Thankfully, it was the right one, so we still had a full pair.
Except that we couldn’t find it anywhere! I searched the house high and low, and it was nowhere to be found. That’s when I wrote this.
It eventually turned up in the garden. We think that possibly Angel crept into the house, stole the shoes out, and hid one shoe for later chewing. Because of the absolute flogging she got for the first one, we think she was probably to scared to eat the second, and so it remained in tact.
I can’t even remember what happened to get that pair eaten.
The crocs after that were left outside after a dinner picnic.
And his Chugginton things were left at a park.
Which led me to this weeks purchase. And this morning’s carnage.
I should also point out that on Wednesday night, we had friends over and forgot to remind them not to leave their shoes outside. As it stands we owe them both a pair of thongs.
This year the dog has cost me $125 worth of shoes. Hence my giveaway!
In the spirit of all good blog give aways, if you would like my dog leave a comment and tell me in 25 words or less what pair of shoes you wish my dog would eat. The best story gets…well they don’t get anything. A reply comment.
Sorry, I’m not really giving the dog away.
But I am taking donations of new shoes. Or money. Whatever you like. I’m not fussy. 🙂
