The puggle grind

It's a well known fact that I destroy toys. It really doesn't matter the shape or size or make or model...I will rip into it and take out it's guts. Then I will eat the guts and poop them out. It's kind of like that whole "circle of life" stuff that the Discovery Channel talks about.

Now, Patches is a chomper. I keep telling him that chomping down on something doesn't bring on the destruction. He doesn't care, and probably figures that I do enough damage for the both of us.

Let me show you what I affectionately call the "Puggle Grind:"

Place the toy (in this case it is a brand new flying squierrel frisbee thingy that set my mama back $9.99, plus tax) deep into the corner of your mouth. Bite down. And, grind like the humans do when they are stressed. I promise, you don't even need strong jaws! (Feel free to change sides from time to don't want to wear down one side of your mouth because that will make eating treats tricky.)

In about 2 minutes, your human will take the toy you are biting, look at your handiwork, sigh, shrug and give it back to you since there's nothing they can do anyway.

Oh, you do a good demonstration Sparky. I do that too but to boxes mainly...

Love licks,

Oh Sparky how you and I are so similar. I definitely have the Puggle Grind down perfected. I've been given scrutinized supervision with the last couple of toys.

Grind away, little Sparky. Your humans certainly got their $9.99 plus tax worth of entertainment.


Sparky said...

Man, you're really good at destroying toys, Sparky!

I think I should try the grinding way of killing my own toys.

Oooooo, you are so very wise. Now can I use this same technique on my human's shoe? I mean those are like toys too right?

Ahhhh you look so happy gnawing the life outta that toy!

How did you do that grind thing, again? I need to practice that skill;it looks awesome!

WinstonBerry said...

Great demonstration! I like your technique!
I do that on shoes quite often. Particularly sneakers in 'hard-to find again' styles . . . somehow, they are always the tastiest!

Hi Sparky! Thanks for telling us about the puggle grind! It sounds really neat, and I think I will try it too!
Love Clover xo

Are you sure you don't have some dacshund in you, too? That is exactly how my sister destroys toys! This weekend one of our favorite toys at Grandma's lost the squeaker in the way you just described.
