"The Devil Made Me Do It"

Im sure if Maya could talk, that would be how she'd explain this..

:rolleyes:

She just wanted to tell you that she wanted a bit of warm air on her coat 😃

Hey, that's what my microphone cord to the CB looks like when AJ cops a 'tude! I've been through four since I've had him on the truck.

Whoops ! ….......

I am sure it would be more like The "Tri" in me, made me do it!!!

First Basenji's

Oh no!

I agree with Kim, she must have been a little cold.

Houston

Hahaha, so funny, I have had those…several times, and yes, Otis says the devil made him do it..

LOL No explanation necessary! She could reach it-therefore, it was fair game!

Good thing Maya didn't do that while it was plugged in…. of course Basenjis are probably smart enough to know better... 😃

haha… When I first got Lana, she was not well-socialized or house-trained at all, so she tried chewing on stuff, but we had a long "talk" with her about that. No chewing on things other than toys and dog treats, no walking on kitchen counters, tables and windowsills, no knocking off plants, no fishing in the fish tank, etc. etc. etc. She is SOOO much better now... makes me so much happier. Of course she is also very rarely alone inside the house, on the account that I still don't trust her 100% with the plants and the fishtank.

She wouldnt do it again if it had been plugged in! That'd learn 'er lol.

In all honesty though, i used that hairdryer mostly on Maya after a bath as she hates being wet and cold, so she only has herself to blame when she's in a strop after the next one!!

I particularly love how she chewed it right by the end of the hairdryer handle thingy so theres no way at all i can re-wire it. BAD puppy.

Maya is socialised and house trained 😉

@Maya:

Yeah, I do too, and Lana HATES it with a passion… so if she chewed on something, I doubt the hairdryer would be her choice of thing to chew on... or would it? 😉

I don't doubt that for a minute! I am just saying that if she wasn't it would be MUCH MUCH MUCH worse…

Oh, Maya LOVES being dried. Sits there with her head up and eyes closed, lifts her legs up to have her armpits done 😃 She goes wild afterwards too!

She chewed the cable on my straightners about 4 months ago - i should have learned from that :rolleyes:

Haha, I have a feeling it would go like this;

"What? You're angry? I saved your life! I have seen how you have to battle this thing, hair flying everywhere! Well no more! The beast is dead!" :p

You know, you're probably right!! She is a complete mummy's baby and im sure everything she does she things is helping me :rolleyes:

I couldnt tell her off for it when she led me excitedly upstairs the minute i came through the front door and sat proudly over the dead hairdryer wiggling her tail and yodelling at me :rolleyes: She was SO proud of what she did!

Maybe she thought you were going to use them on her tail 😃

Not too sure about that my last Basenji chewed through a live cable getting 240 volts through his teeth. I never want to hear the noise he made again but he was actualy ok.He was after the plastic connection block on the end of the cable.

:eek:

Yea, I'm sure he did learn from that quickly and glad to hear he was alright after. That always worries me with Kananga but he shows no interest in power cables.

He had, at one point, chewed through an optical cable and a few speaker wires, but those were being removed anyways so they were not connected/powered at the time. Silly pup… :rolleyes:
