Sock monster

Charlie has this thing about socks. Noooo... he doesn't chew them. Noooo... he doesn't lick them. Nooo... he doesn't carry them around the house. Nooo... it's different from that.

Putting socks on activates him!

Humans attempting to put socks on anywhere in his sight must guard their feet and beware, because it turns Charlie into a sock-biting fiend! And sock-biting easily escalates to foot-biting, followed by all-out roughhousing.

Charlie's been like this ever since he was a puppy. And now at two, while it's getting to be almost possible to put socks on around him... sometimes... it's never easy.

Maybe he sees it as a great wrestling match (human vs. sock) in which he wants to participate -- on the sock's side. Or, maybe he sees the sock as a monster trying to attack and wants to help the human side.

I don't know. All I know is it's darn hard to put socks on around this house!

Hi Charlie,

The ol' sock puppet trick. Works every times. Glad you've got the upper paw.

Guess what? You've been Christmas tagged....BY ME!

Please drop by my place and see what you have to do. Good lucks!

That is so funny Charlie you do that. I do something similar. I never bite me leash while walking, or in the house, or anywhere, other than when we're crossing a street. I wait by the curb, and when mum tells me "OK" to cross the street, I start my maniac mode and bite and shake my leash. It ends as soon as I reach the curb on the other side.

Mum has no idea why I do this, but I just do, and that's the only time I do it!

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade
