This is Dash, our Australian Cattle dog cross.
She was dumped into my daughter's front yard as a small puppy about 11 years ago.
She was lucky, she was immediately adopted by Sally.
When Sally headed overseas we were asked to mind her two dogs for her while she was gone for two years.
Well, the two years turned into five and then she couldn't have her dogs with her where she was renting
and by then we had had the dogs for seven years so they have stayed with us!
We love them, they are our dogs though they adore Sally whenever she comes home.
Dash is a lovely dog ...... with one bad habit.
Every now and then she rips things to pieces !
She's been known to rip up her bed, strewing downy stuffing all over the yard like snow.
She's an old lady now... you'd think that sort of thing was in her past but this morning,
when no-one was looking.....
and she was supposed to be sleeping peacefully in the kitchen....
she did this to her bed !!
Obviously just a moment of madness !
It was just there and she just had to give it a little yank....
and that ripping noise is soooo delicious !!!
Then, we went out for a couple of hours and when we returned we found this...
Luckily, I've learnt not to leave good sheets on the line.
This is HER sheet she's ripped !!
She's very sorry......
She knows she shouldn't do it........
She says she doesn't know what comes over her.
She just can't resist that delicious ripping sound !!
