Having a puppy is full of fun, excitement and love. But more often cleaning, scrubbing, sweeping, vacuuming and scolding. Bryson has been a good dog for the most part. He was house-trained in 2 weeks and understands what "NO!" means. However, lately he has become quite the Houdini. He has learned to open the gate as well as his crate. Therefore, his daddy decided to give him a "trial run" and leave him out of his crate while we were out. Needless to say, Bryson made sure that everything that could have been shredded to pieces was, by the time we came home, shredded to pieces. His breathe reeked of sunflowers, as he had devoured our three sunflower scented candles on the night stand. In addition to the candles he tore up papers, wooden boxes, toys, plastic bags and chose the bathroom trash as his lunch. Unfortunately, the age old cliche excuse, "My dog ate my homework," has become a reality to me. In short, he failed his "trial run." However, no matter what Bryson eats, shreds, chews and destroys, one cannot help but love that adorable face and those innocent (looking) eyes.

You should post some photos of the destruction.

wow, brave. I didn't leave my two labs alone uncrated until they were a year old. My older lab is ok on her own but we'd definitely come home to destruction if the younger lab was left out.
