Black Angus

As some of you may know, I have a very cute and very hyper puppy named Angus. He's a black lab mix that I rescued from the pound last April. Angus will be turning a year old on February 2nd.

Instead of a picture of my very cute puppy, I've decided to put up a picture of his favorite toy* This toy holds special meaning to both Angus and myself. It was his very first toy. In fact when he first got it he couldn't even hold it in his mouth. In the 10 months that I've been graced with the presence of Sir Angus he's gone through five...yes five of them.

He has a system. First he chews the ears off and then he rips it apart. Fiance thinks he rips the ears off b/c we constantly feed him pig ears...but I'm not sure he can make that connection seeing as he doesn't witness the pig ears being made.

I used to take them away when he'd chew a hole in them but have since realized that he wants the stuffing...not to eat...but to play with. It keeps him entertained in the backseat during car rides, I don't even begin to know why, but it's a blessed occurence.

Now Angus has added a new step to the system, he now turns his pig inside out. I have ABSOLUTELY no clue how he does this. The hole that he's torn is only about the size of a nickle. My dog is either a complete genius or a complete idiot.

Needless to say, for Angus' first birthday he will be getting two more of these pigs. What can I say? He loves them. And I love him


*not actually the same toy. I've spent the past 45 minutes or so searching for a picture of his toy and this is the best I could find. It's actually quite close, but the ears are too big. and they aren't white on the bottom. Not that I would know since I haven't seen one with ears for quite some time.
