The blanket must pay!!!!!!!!!!!!!
New game. (Hubby and I really have too much time on our hands) We have declared Gunther our "snuggle bunny". He was getting a little riled up attacking hubby's feet and when he laid down on the couch we tagged teamed him with hugs and lots of cheesy sounding "snuggle bunny!" words. Humiliated, hyper, and crazy Gunther proceeded to jump down into zoomies. I sat in the corner of the couch where he would jump up, nip at my hands while jumping on me, then zoom back down. So I got up all big and tough looking and said "NOW WHAT????". He grabbed the only remaining blanket in the house and carried it through his zoomies.
Ok Gunther, you're da man.

Toys... I have all of Stella's toys, from the first one to the last. She never wrecked them, just got dirty, washed, dirty again. Along comes Fritz, not only does he inherit Stella's toys, but he gets his own. He wrecks them in less than 5 minutes..and he is on his second pool!
So, like Gunther, he too is adoreable and he knows it!

|Ellimaybel||Silliness. When we play outside it's always either with both kongs or with one kong and the red ball. Which used to be a soft baseball but the white part got stripped off. But when I put Gunther's pool up he has a list of toys that HAVE to be in the pool. The rubber football, soccer ball, basketball, and both kongs. Mind you, we don't play with the rubber balls. If they aren't in the pool he will go get them, one by one, and put them in. Which is always hilarious because he stops about 20 times each time because he can't carry all 3 at once and he doesn't want to risk me taking one of them. The antics of these characters!|

New toys last around here until the novelty of a new toy wears off then they lose stuffing, feet, heads, etc. The only one I've kept relatively in one piece is a stuffed iguana that a friend gave Raina as a reward for catching a real iguana. We play with it until she lays down to gnaw on it and that is when I substitute a different toy and put the iguana away for next time.
Pyrate had a green dog he slept with that he never chewed on. I still keep it in a basket by my front door and Raina doesn't touch it, even when she gets her bear out of the same basket. She knows that it is Pyrate's green dog and respects that.

Gunther is over the walrus. He moved onto Elephant love in the recent past. Today I caught him trying to hump Cyclone. There will be NO Cyclone love in this house!!!!!!!!
I am GUNTHER!!!!!!!!!!!! I sniff out trouble and treats. I will bark so ferociously that you won't even think about coming onto my property. I will charge at you before mom even knows what happened, but don't worry if you aren't a threat she'll rein me in. I will get the zoomies and attack your feet and there is nothing anyone can do about it. I will play fetch until I can't walk anymore. Then I will just lie there with the ball in my mouth until you throw it again. I ...will stick my nose wherever I please, I will lick you where you don't want to be licked, I will soak my mouth in water and then come rub my head all over you. I will ham up every moment so that you feel guilty about not spending every waking second paying attention to me and only me.
The best news? There is NOTHING you can do about it because I'm adorable and I know it!

|Ellimaybel||Yep normally stuffies don't last long at all around here. I think he's learning though that when he chews them up, I have to throw them away. But this, this is walrus love. Plain and simple.|

|McWeagle||That's so cute! Frankie has a couple of stuffies that she treats like this too. They've had to be hidden until Nox gets a little older because he wants to chew the arms and legs off everything.|

|Ellimaybel||Gunther and his walrus. Sigh. It's adorable really. I played the claw machine a week ago at work and in the three plays won a tye-dyed alligator that I gave to Cyclone, a minion that we kept, and a stuffed walrus. I came home and gave it to Gunther and told him it's his walrus. He treats it like a baby. Other than the tusks being chewed off, it's fully intact and we don't DARE play fetch with his walrus. If we throw the walrus he retrieves it, puts it in his bed, and brings us a different toy. He carries it around the house like a prized possession and if we mention the walrus he gets it. I love this dog.|

|Ellimaybel||I'm not sure anyone even reads this thread anymore lol But I have a plan! This is the most serious of training I have ever taken with Gunther and I know it's going to take a bit of work. We really need to break him of the habit of standing on the fence barking at people so he doesn't get us or himself in trouble. The main issue I've found is that training him in the yard and playing a guessing random game of when someone may or may not walk by is not working. If nobody is going by, the training doesn't work since he already listens without any distractions. So I'm enlisting the help of coworkers and friends. I have a church 2 doors down. The plan is to set up different times when someone can come over, park in that lot, and walk by under different scenarios. One day they can just be walking by, another time on the phone, another time pulling a wagon, another time walking their dog, another time all bundled up, etc. This way we can be out there do train him. I'm excited!|
