We can’t really blame the natural instincts of a dog to destroy a toy, as they are only living out the deep seeded generations of wolves gone by.
Ode to a Friend
I sing out this ode, to my friend gone by
Not meaning to do it but I ripped out it’s eye
Such a sad day; it was my favoritest toy
But running through the house did seem to annoy
Was the same for bear ripping out eyes and nose
But mom was able to fix it, the holes she did close.
The holes in the hedgehog she was not able to fix
Which brings my toy numbers down from seven to six
Saturday is coming with a trip to the store
Maybe, oh maybe, she will bring me some more.

We do love out pets but we must remember that because they are domesticated they are very dependent on our care. Care for them well. We must be deserving of the devotion they shower on us. Learn to be kind as they understand kindness.
Always be Kind!
