Things we have learned

The cardboard roll on the inside of a roll of toilet paper can be removed, with the remaining toilet paper still usable.

The Styrofoam pellet filling of a 30 x 40 inch dog bed has the ability to cling to vertical surfaces and has the half life of carbon.

A 10 inch fleece toy contains enough polyfill stuffing to cover an entire living room floor.

Squeaky toys are best initiated through the removal of their squeakers.

Once the squeaker and stuffing have been removed, the shell of fleece toys retain value as tug toys.

The bimples from Booda © Bimple bones are a dog-owner’s equivalent of legos © on bare feet in the middle of the night.

There is such a thing as the exactly just perfect, no-other-will-do toy that may be at the bottom of the toy box. Or, there might not be. Either way, it is best to pull out all the toys to see.

The peanut butter in the other Kong toys doesn’t taste better, but it is good to try to gather them all together for a taste test.

A dead thing consumed will eventually return in an aromatic form, only 50 times more repulsive than it could ever have smelled prior to ingestion.

Behavioral training is not best acquired through the internet.

The “pennies in a can” aversion technique for training can result in the un-housebreaking of a dog.

Dogs can be un-housebroken.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder is not unique to humans.

It is possible to fall asleep petting a dog, wake up in 6 hours, and pick up right where you left off.
