Dogs eating glasses

OUR NEW AUSSIE, Genie, has fit in pretty well. She likes to play with her two adopted brothers and she loves to run. She has limited skills when it comes to people and social interaction - she just wasn't raised socially, and she's 2 years old. She is a bit of a sneak and can get herself in trouble by snatching food or things off the tables.

For the past month we've had to watch where we put our stuff, because Genie likes to eat the computer mouse, socks, shoes, shirts, blankets, books, plates, cups .... everything left within reach.

I'm not used to it. I just throw my stuff down and forget about it, because I'm a man. When I can't find it, I blame karma or the dogs. Can't someone else keep track of my stuff?

Last night I put my glasses on the table right next to me and started reading a book. Genie grabbed them and a little bit later, Sheryl found them on the bedroom floor, mangled beyond repair.

Sweet Genie
I got really mad at the dog first. Then I cursed myself - don't leave stuff lying around, dumbass! The real moral of the story is - don't get too engrossed in that book.

This morning I went to All About Eyes. I got my new glasses there a year and a half ago and I was really impressed with their staff and prices. I didn't know I had a warranty on the glasses and the replacement cost was a lot less than I thought it would be. I even had enough cash left to buy Sheryl a venti soy latte from Starbucks.

So. Genie. You and I gotta start seeing eye to eye on this eating stuff business. We need to talk. Now.

But first let me put my glasses in a safe place
