Henry’s New Toy

July 16, 2007 at 10:39 pm 3 comments

Every now and then Henry finds an object he finds desireable, so he sits next to it and guards it.  Usually those items are of no interest to anyone else.  Nonetheless, in Henry’s mind, he believes all other animals (aka Jimmie and Stench) are after his precious find.  Unfortunately, Henry gives no indication that he is on high alert until he is already making a ruckus.

Last week, we were all sitting peacefully in the living room when Jimmie had the nerve to come in and take a seat on the ottoman.  Our nice, calm evening erupted in chaos.  Henry jumped off the couch (on the other side of the room, mind you) and growled and howled and chased Jimmie, a dog that has 25 pounds on him, out of the room.

Once the threat was removed, Henry ran back and grabbed his possession for safe keeping.  What got Henry so heated?  An empty roll of toilet paper!  Who amoung us wouldn’t be defensive over that?

Looks like Henry found a use for a toilet paper roll that is even more glamorous than our temporary toothbrush holder.

    When I feel bad. I do that too. I will grab empty toilet paper rolls and hold on to them like they are gold. Tell the pup that he is not alone!

    Nah. But I do some strange stuff when I get in a hole and can’t get out. Emotionally speaking.

    […] everything in sight? Attacking other dogs over toilet paper rolls? Cowering from the Hokie Bird? Running away from Donkeys? Arooing at doorbells? Getting sticks […]
