Dan, She is good looking. Alas, her looks don't overshadow her behavior. Thinking about that sentence makes me wonder if I don't have the Paris Hilton of dogs? Substitute "eat or destroy" for the verb denoting action that Ms. Hilton is most known for as in, "Paris Hilton is definitely attractive, but she will eat or destroy anyone in sight."It got cold the other night, so I placed an old mattress cover on the back porch for the dogs to share. Squeek destroyed it. The back yard now looks like a cotton field after the stripper* came through.But, she does have her looks.Doc Bryant*stripper, a mechanical device to remove cotton bolls from the cotton plant. Not a lady of suspect dancing skills showing equally suspect breasts for financial renumeration.

Well, this sounds familiar. My new dog is also a stripper. She has destroyed pants, shoes, beds, and just this morning she tore a piece off the carpet! This is bound to create trouble when it is noticed later on today. I am in for it.The redeeming feature for me is that she is full of love and life, an enthusiastic and happy little thing. But, I am still in for it.Best regards.Luis
