    Keeper of the hens

    Despite the fact that Zoey is two years old now, we still leave her in her crate when we're not home. We do the same with Kasper, but for an entirely different reason: Kasper has severe separation anxiety, and being in his crate calms this. Zoey, however, is in her crate for a somewhat different reason...

    Mainly because she can't be trusted when left alone, she is destructo dog extraordinaire!

    Just this evening we put her in her crate as usual, with two stuffed Kongs, an antler and a Nylabone. What we didn't realise is that a cylinder of wrapping paper was too close to her crate...the result?

    Complete mayhem! :rolling:

    Zoey doesn't have separation anxiety at all...she simply loves to shred and destroy things!! I can only imagine the fun she had making this mess:

    And here's one of her Kongs, the antler and Nylabone, discarded :)

    Ah well, at least she had a good time - even if it meant she didn't touch either of her Kongs!

    And she wonders why we don't trust her out of her crate :001_rolleyes:

    Kasper is actually very well behaved out of his crate (apart from when we don't close the kitchen door properly; he loves to barge through and raid the bins or kitchen counters!), but his separation anxiety plays up and he becomes very anxious. In his crate he spends the whole time chilling. Zoey on the other hand lives to destroy things, and can't be trusted unsupervised for even the shortest of times...books, magazines, slippers, cushions, if she's left alone they will suffer! :smile:

    I think my little Chloe will be a lot like Zoey..she loves to rip things up..for such a tiny girl, she can flat destruct anything she can get her little mouth on.

    Haha, yes, sounds familiar!

    Kasper is super destructive, whatever we give him will get torn to shreds, but he's fairly well behaved when left unsupervised for a few minutes...unless we forget to close the kitchen door properly (you have to really slam it to fully close it). If we forgot he will nudge the door open and raid the bin in the kitchen...greedy sod! :smile:

    Zoey on the other hand, we can't leave her unsupervised for even a minute...she will get up to mischief some how! She loves to destroy things when left alone, whereas Kasper just hunts for food...his appetite is endless!!
