As you may all know by now, Gromit lived with us over Christmas last year, and Rummy learned a really bad habit from him. It is shredding toys that have stuffing inside.
Rummy finds himself a toy, uses his teeth to create a gap, and will take his leisurely time, pulling out the stuffing. The disemboweling is the goal of the game, and he's really good at it.
Sometimes, Rummy likes to chew on the stuffing, but he never swallows. He leaves it out for the humans to pick up after him. What a nice gesture..and what a mess!
Nope, no guilty faces here.
Disemboweling is allowed at our house now. The humans don't seem to mind, Rummy fine tunes his gift of disemboweling, and improves his "hand, eye, mouth" coordination skills. We consider it a gift here at our pack.
Rummy says, thank you Mum for letting me shred in the open. I am happy and content as can be.
Beautiful Rummy Cub
I then decided to chew on my brother's jowls. That's my game.. far better than chewing on a soft toy...
