What my husband is getting for Christmas from Jon and Dewi...

The following scenes were reinacted:

Jon to Dewi: "I double-dog dare you."

Dewi to Me: "What? Jon told me to do it."

Lesson: When the house is eerily quiet and the Corgis are nowhere in sight, it's already too late. Aaagh!

Carol, your story about Sonny and the banana bread made me laugh. I am fearing/dreading the day mine figure out how to go from chair bottom to table/counter top. Thanks also for the mouse trap on the tree branches idea; I might have to carefully try that. I don't have a clue what the dogs will do to the tree yet, but last year my youngest cat, Lulabelle, would take flying leaps into our live tree and climb it. Then she'd perch on a sturdy branch and take a nap. The first time we discovered her there, she almost scared the life out of us; we thought she was a squirrel! BTW - last year our tree was left ornamentless - only lights. :(

Whenever I am feeling down and out and a little blue, all I need to do is go to corgis caught in crime (or look for a post from Wendy about the Rafinator!!!) Just a few posts and I am laughing uncontrollably. What would we do without our furry friends? I would use colored duct tape, let the grandkids use it to play "grown up"

I am sure all our friends wonder at us - all doors are shut, to keep the corgis out! Then I have to remember that Sonny can get into the garbage and also onto the coffee table. I had the ladies down 2 weeks ago and put banana bread on an antique plate on the coffee table. Went to the front door to let them in, came back and the whole plate was empty! Sonny had eaten the whole thing, left the plate undisturbed (he is 40+ pounds, I am surprised the plate was still on the table!) I forget that we have a corgi that can get up on things, Lucky has been unable to do so for so long.

Elizabeth, don't even try to keep the cats out of things!! Not only does our cat (yes, just one at this time) get into things and destroy them, she is up on the counters when we are gone, knocks things down for the corgi boys to destroy as well. Can hardly wait to get the Christmas tree, I think I will try the mouse trap on the bottom branches trick. (we have friends who actually did that!)

So funny! You're right when the corgis get quiet I get nervous!

I am somewhat comforted to know that Jon and Dewi made you smile at my husband's expense. :) (Just kidding; I laughed at them myself because they looked so proud of what they'd done at the time. It was totally my fault for leaving the bedroom door open knowing in my gut that they cannot be trusted!) This is so NOT the first thing they've damaged or destroyed in my house - not by far. (Stay tuned - I might share a couple other memorable incidents.) I do believe having each other to feed of of leads them to possibly more mischief than if we only had one.

Also, I can't even begin to tell you how many things the cats have gotten into. No matter how hard we try to pet-proof, it's always something. At this point we're just trying to prevent them from poisoning or injuring themselves! (Thankfully, the dogs did not eat the briefcase - or its contents - after they ripped it to shreds.) I did actually get a chuckle imagining my husband telling his coworkers that the dogs ate his briefcase! And thanks for the black duct tape tip, John, I might seriously try that! The dogs can't really afford a new briefcase right now, as they eat like royalty.

Thanks also for the tips on the Corgis Caught in Crime group and www.s@#**mypetsruined.com website. I got a good belly laugh scanning through both of those!

Jon and Dewi look so angelic sound asleep at my feet right now...

Amateurs. Al & Gwynn would have gotten not just the briefcase, but the very important, sensitive, valuable, irreplaceable documents inside, too.
"Sorry, Boss, the, uh... er... the dogs ate my brief..."

oh no!

Oh wow! I'm so sorry but I love this! Can't wait to share with my husband tonight! Callie was and is our very good girl but oh my Cooper on the other hand( ALL BOY!) so makes up for all the good Callie is. We've given up on having throw rugs around the house! I'm so glad we don't have carpet any where...then there's the yard that still looks mostly like a minefield with all Coops digging. If Dad says anything I can generally say"Well the damage happens on his watch not mine!" Thanks for sharing!

Very funny and frustrating for you!

Jack won't bother anything. Maddie thinks that the garbage can is something to forage in for food and/or toys. My cat chews the corners of books, papers, mail, etc. She also likes to knock things down and hide them under stuff.

Gotta love them, though!
