The Latest Chews

While Vinson's chewing and nipping has really been reduced in the last couple of weeks, there are still new items that attract his mouth. The latest?
  • Metal Zippers on anything from jackets to pillow covers
  • His stainless water bowl (he'll finish the water and then run away with the bowl)
  • Metal latches on leashes, tie-downs, etc
These hard and cool surfaces are likely attractive because of his teething / loosing his puppy teeth. Like the magazines, papers and towels before them, these items have now been removed when not in use or placed up high; and correction must be given to avoid damage to the pup's teeth or worse, creating a habit of chewing them.

    Really enjoyed meeting Vinson at TSE today. I just finished reading all your posts. I am so very impressed with his story. Your writing is memorable and I am enjoying all the stories, as we have raised 4 pups for TSE and have been through some of the same adventures!!!!!
