A Teddy Mischief Update.

Teddy's online adoption ad describing his personality as highly energetic and "Dennis the Menace-like" has turned out to be frighteningly accurate...

Sneak on top of the kitchen table and steal my peanut butter and jelly english muffin in the thirty seconds while I jump up to put the American Girl doll away that he had in his mouth? Check.

Pull every piece of bark that he can reach off the palm trees? Chew up uncountable pieces of tree branches and bark and spread the leavings all over our house? Check.

Have a definite reputation at Camp Bow Wow for having the most "energy" of all the campers earning quite a few squirts from the "knock it off" water bottle daily? Check.

Think that nibbling on ear lobes and toes and fingers, with very sharp puppy teeth, is one of the best things in the world? Check.

Effortlessly jump up on 4' high counters and make you think that perhaps he's part kangaroo? Yep.

Slide his big head under every piece of furniture, sofa, chair, and bed, to shred the staples, webbing, and fabric underneath? Yes, that too.

Go, go, go most of the day with barely a break for a nap? Wake me up at 6 am with those ear nibbles and big scratchy stretches of his huge calloused feet in my face? Bring you his ball or his rope or his bone over and over again to throw? Cost us a fortune in doggy day care to keep him from destroying our house? Uh huh.

When he finally calms down, snuggle up with his head on your lap or on your shoulder sweet as anything? Have everyone at Camp Bow Wow telling us over and over again how much they look forward to him coming in the door because he's so much fun? Make fast friends with every dog in the neighborhood, large or small? Look at you with that adorable wrinkly face and those big brown eyes and melt your heart? Once in awhile surprise you with a lovely soft kiss? Rearrange himself in bed in a right-up-against-you ball so he can be closer to his humans? Yes, yes, yes, yes and yes.

Have our hearts wrapped up all around him while simultaneously driving us crazy? Absolutely.

Love you Teddy Mischief. Teddy Moose. Teddy Beaver. Love you bunches.

I can drive Mom...
