I Have a Sheep Problem.

No, I did not mis-type the title of this post, although I do have a sleep problem (as in, I can't get my Sheepdog to stop waking me up at 4am every.single.morning). But rather, I do infact have a sheep problem.

I have a sheepdog. They are bred to herd sheep. If there are no sheep in the house, they herd their owners. No lie.

Since I own a sheepdog, he obviously needs some sheep. And by some, I mean a lot.

Every time I see a dog toy that even remotely resembles a sheep, I must buy it. Do you even know how many dog toys are out there resembling sheep? Tons. Take it from me, there is a veritable sheep/lamb dog toy market out there. And I'm sure they've made millions of dollars, mostly off of me and my gullability.

I once even bought Sullivan an almost lifesize stuffed sheep animal. It took him approximately three hours to dismantle the sheep, limb by limb.

But I haven't learned my lesson. Case in point? I brought him home another sheep today- and the tag claims indestructability.

Did I mention my gullability? I can't help it that he's a sheepdog and needs his sheep.

  1. My lab mix is such a chewer. He's gone through more "indestructible" toys than I can count.

    And yet, I keep falling for it.

    Hope springs eternal.

  2. I go through tons of toys at my house too, I have a beagle and a black and tan coonhound mix - they destroy so much! Even all of the "indestructible" ones - false advertising + my gullibility!

    I love that you keep buying sheep!!! Good luck with the 4am wake ups - that is no good!

  5. aww! Gracie has never destroyed a toy (yet) but I feel bad for dog owners who have that problem. Gracie just sits around licking her toys... I think she likes the way they taste... hehe!
