An apple a day...

... helps Diesel's teething pain (and saves our ankles!)

Who'd have thought a cold apple could provide so much entertainment, and gum relief for puppy. My girlfriend suggested we give it a go as she had done the same thing for her puppy! And it works - other suggestion was either raw corn on cob (or cooled cooked cob) and that too is really good for their gums and saves your ankles from being the chosen knawing item.
Diesel has a chew rope, a couple of DD2's old stuffed toys an egg carton (the knobbly part) for chewing and he's decided his other favourite chewing items are used plastic milk containers. In some ways these puppies are just like little children, the simpliest things provide them the greatest entertainment. My girls most favourite toys were the peg tin (and throwing the pegs all over the wooden floor, makes a great noise and the pegs scoot in all directions) and the cooking pots from the cupboard (they make great drums when using the wooden spoons or whisk on the pot bottoms).
Darling Bella thinks Diesel is a true imposter and really can't lower herself to spend any time in his company. Quarry cat is the smallest and sassiest of the cats and takes great delight at 'standing him down'. Licorice is a tease and torments Diesel, and Jazz is our weary one who hisses and spits if she even sniffs that he's in the same room.
