My Dog Likes to eat up Boxes.

When the kids were little, one of our favourite books was this one:  "My Cat Likes to Hide in Boxes".  Fun, simple rhymes and introducing cats from all around the world and what they like to do ... 

These days we just have a real-life dog.  Who likes to sit in boxes.  Once she has had a good growling and frenetic tear and chew session of the box - to make it more habitable, perhaps?  


  1. LOL Kathrine. She looks very proud of herself!

  2. How sweet! Both mine used to love to tear up paper and cardboard! Who knows why? It's obviously satisfying!

    Maybe it's the nesting instinct?

  3. Everyone needs a hobby. At least its not shoes.

  4. Your dog is so adorable, look at the expression on his face. Like "hey, I'm busy, why are you taking photo!?"

    What breed is it?

  5. Funny about animals and boxes! But a box as big as me would be a fun place to play for me too :)

    (And you're right, I'm very very interested in all things Maori related)

  6. Sis - Shelly is just exhausted.
    Jay - nesting - nothing so constructive! Shelly is just plain nutty.
    Dijea, I've always kept shoes away from my dogs, and scolded at the first sign... Towels, however. An old one is fair game for a good tug-of-war.
    April - welcome to TLVD! I don't think I've seen you here before! She is nervously waiting for the flash, actually...She is a Pekinese crossed with a Japanese Chin. East meets East ha ha.
    Emily - I love boxes too! And I must have played in them a lot, or been a house pet in another life, because I know that squeezy, secure feeling of being in one. Either that or they kept me in my pram too long. Actually, I think that was it. :-)
