My cute little puppy is on my "S" list. He's about 6 months old - a Dalmatian / lab mix. The little bugger chewed up my sunglasses, a nice pair of polarized Oakley Jackets that I love for fishing and driving and pretty much every day use. I had left them on the sill of the bedroom window and gone to sleep with the window open and no screen on it (Puppy sleeps outside in his dog house) and when I woke up, puppy had found my shades and had his fun with them during the night. He didn't totally destroy them, but he might as well have. I found them with a lens out of the frames and the little rubber ear pieces off of the frames as well. There is an annoying scratch right in my field of vision on one lens, lots of chew marks on the rubber ear pieces and a few chew marks on the frames. They are still wearable, which is quite a testament to the construction of these things, but there is something not right about wearing shades that cost 200 bones when new that have now been chewed up by a dog. Dog-gone dog. I'm pretty much blaming myself for leaving them within his reach - He didn't know any better - I mean, I've never specifically trained him not to eat expensive eyewear. I'm wondering: Is there any way to train a dog to not chew on random items that are left within his reach or is this just a "pups will be pups" kind of thing?
