Periodic Puppy Pics

So, I know the answer to what happens to all those socks that go missing in the laundry. It's the dogs. Dogs love socks.

Callie and her latest knotted sock.

Callie is no exception. But I think we have her trained not to pick up just any sock in the house. In fact, we can leave our socks out waiting to be folded, and she won't go for them.

The trick was this: whenever a sock wears out, we tie a few knots in it and give it to Callie. Then we play "sock." So, for her, a sock has knots in it. Those flat things are just not interesting.


  1. Maybelle plays "sock" all the time! We didn't think to teach her not to pick up any sock she sees, so we are missing socks around here.

    BTW the verification word is "holess";-)
    Drole, non?

  2. Callie and I have something in common! We both like men's socks!

  3. Callie is so darn cute, you just want to go up to her and give her a big smooch right on that little white snout! I love every picture of her (and I'm not even a "dog person"!)


  4. evelyn, I really think the google people are putting some of those words in there on purpose. They can't all be random...

    alewis, and I know you're not alone!

    judy, she smooches back! Lots of tongue.


Tell me what you think!
