Oreo's first casualty

We knew it would happen eventually, and it didn't take long. Oreo destroyed one of the girls' toys.  And, to his credit, he didn't just choose any toy.  He decided Bitty Baby was going to be a good chew toy.

We knew something was wrong as soon as we walked in the door from church.  Daddy was standing at the door with an angry look on his face.  I asked why the dog was outside and Daddy said, "You'll find out in a minute."

When the blond twin saw Bitty Baby, her favorite, most loved baby, she started crying.  She sobbed and sobbed until her eyes were red.  She said, "I don't like that dog anymore.  I want to get rid of him."

Now, in his defense, it wasn't totally his fault.  The blond twin left Bitty Baby in a vulnerable position.  The temptation was too much for Oreo.  He is, after all, just a dog.

A bit later the girls were in their room swaddling and cuddling Bitty Baby.  They were making plans to take care of her, as if she was in rehabilitation. 

They will be more careful in the future, but let's just say it will be a long time before Oreo is out of the dog house.

We have a couple Star Wars action figures (which my son bought with his allowance money) with teeth marks and missing limbs. My son FINALLY learned to not leave them around where the dogs can get at them. Now the action figures have 'battle scars'.

This is why I'm glad we just have two cats. My kiddo freaked out when one of the cats (the dumb one, obviously) chewed a tail off of a rubber lizard that she liked. Can't imagine if one of her favorite toys got mangled. Yikes. Poor Bitty Baby.

Poor Oreo. It's so hard to be a good dog everyday with temptation starring at you right in the face. Hope the little ones get over the brawl and invite Oreo to come out of the "dog house." We have been lucky here and Georgie our boxer hasn't destroyed anything yet. A few licks here and there, but I know sooner or later there will be trouble. Good luck with rehabilitation of the doll.
