I have shoes that are MINE and shoes that are Theirs (also a dozen tennis balls). I never chew them up, I just LOVE to carry them around the house swinging my tail from side to side and wreaking havoc on anything within tail distance.
Daddy said dogs like me are supposed to have their tails cut short and stubby, Mommy said NO, that is cruel. So now Mommy howls and yowls when my tail hits her legs. (this is NOT my fault)
When we play ball, and I get to hot, this is my Stop! position. This means I am done for now and need AC fast. (plus I get half a popcicle to cool me down)
