Pilgrim will be 1 at Thanksgiving. He is trying to see how much he can eat. He has pulled the insole out of most shoes in the house. He chews on rugs. He eats books.

A few days ago my hubby calls me at work.

"I just got off the phone with the vet. Pilgrim ate a cd, case and all."

Why in the world would a dog with lots of toys and chew sticks eat a cd??? The vet said he would be fine, just watch for signs of distress.

When I got home, he looked fine and peppy. I had bought him some more toys on the way home (one didn't last the day). What am I gonna do with that boy??

My now almost 2 year old girl has completely outgrown chewwing on odd things. She prefers her bully sticks.
The new puppy has reminded me how much the puppies enjoy eating absolutely anything.

That means he's a little troublemaker, by the way ;)

We are in a heat wave here in San Diego, too hot to take walks. Coincidentally, SIdney has been finding some very interesting things to chew up. I think there is a connection between this and the lack of walks. He took apart a German-English dictionary!

Er ist doch ein Stänker!

Luckily our guys aren't chewers. Does Pilgrim get plenty of exercise? Lots of playtime? Sounds like he may be bored?

This can become a real problem if it continues. If eating the wrong things turns into a habit it can be at best an expensive surgery and bad a life threatening situation even worse death. It is important to confine him in a dog proof place when you can not watch him and only give him acceptable things to play with. A kong with cheese in it is a good chew toy as well as something that will occupy him for a while. We have a doberman with that problem that has had three surgeries and can only be crated with no bedding when left alone.

The answer is: deer/elk antlers.
