I am embarrassed to admit this to you all but it is time we came clean. There is no easy way to say this so I am just going to put it out there.
Shiva the Dog is an addict.
Her drug of choice?
It saddens me to show this shameful evidence of secret chewing but it is undeniable.
Her addiction has gotten so bad, after I get home and let her out of the crate, she goes right back in. She just can’t get through the day without the antler she craves.
You may want to avert your eyes.
It’s our fault. We’re the ones to bring it in the house. The first one we can be forgiven for, but we never should have bought the second. We should have remembered what happened with the marrow bone at Christmas. We should have known antlers would just be ten times worse. Less than two months after her first nibble and look how far she has fallen! How could we have missed the signs?
It’s time for an intervention. For the next couple days, we are putting Shiva in rehab. I feel awful about it but it is the only way she will break this life-destroying habit.
Just look at her, all strung out, begging for for more. My poor innocent puppy is corrupted!
