Dec 15 – Phoebe saw I wanted to take her picture and started chewing on that branch.   A moment later she had chewed it off.

Sadie chews on branches in frustration.  I’ve watched her take a sapling to the ground while being aggravated by a hidden squirrel or mouse.  She has also been known to take firewood from beside the woodstove and take it to the living room to chew on.  I don’t think I’ll ever understand dogs, though I certainly wish I could.  Wouldn’t that be fascinating?
