I just sat down to email my cousin and wish her a happy birthday. Here's what Charlie did while I was on the computer...


That white thing is the toilet paper, still attached to the wall in the bathroom. Can't take my eyes off him for a minute.

My 14 year old Yorkie still likes to attack toilet paper, kleenex and paper napkins. If we leave her alone too long she goes to the bedside and bathroom trash receptacles and tips them over looking for stray tissue to get. We have usually emptied them before we leave because we know she will tip them.
Sometimes we come home and she has tell tale tissue on her nose and mouth. Boy, has she had fun then!

Just wait till you have kids. You kind of have to get used to constantly living in a messy house.
Cleaning the house while the kids are still growing
is like shoveling the walk while it's still snowing.

I laughed so hard when I saw that picture!! I called Mark in to see it, and he said, "Oh I already saw it. I read her website everyday." My husband is more loyal than I am!! I'm going to have to start catching up with him....:-)

Charlie's so darn cute, it would be hard to scold him! Maybe he'll teach Toby some new tricks. Toby goes after the wastebaskets and the kleenex boxes. He's too short to have discovered the toilet paper. Guess I better be prepared if his cousin Charlie comes to visit! He looks so cute and a little like the cat who ate the canary!

LOL! Thanks for pointing out the ONE bad habit my Party Pomeranian Natasha (aka Too Cute To Kill) doesn't have. [knockinghardonwood] She prefers the 'post-use' variety. Ewwwwww! [sorry]

Gee, now I feel bad that your well-intentioned email to me sparked the toilet paper wars!! He *is* cute, though. And I try not to make kids v. dogs comparisons, but a) you know where the end of the tp is and b) it is still dry and c) I don't see any other messes to clean up in addition, so I think you are still doing pretty good :) Thank you for writing to me instead of keeping an eye on Charlie.
Love, the guilty cousin
