Tasty Tuesday

Many of you may remember the story of HER favourite
 navy blue Birkenstocks.

 They fell victim to Bella's teeth.
SHE didn't throw them out straight away which lead to the
famous travelling-halfway-'round-the-world wearing
one black and one blue sandal incident.

Those sandals were replaced IN Germany and the whole transaction took place IN German.  SHE even had to correct the size SHE was given.  The kind sales ladies complemented HER on HER German.  SHE was very proud.

Alas, those sandals were modified by Roxy.

 Roxy chewed the centre strap.  However, once cutting off the straps, they could be worn again.


 Roxy decided to modify them once more.
 And they were thrown out.

Another pair was ordered from Germany.

SHE took great care of them.

this weekend when we had beautiful sandal weather.

 Some peeps never learn.
I hadn't chewed any shoes for weeks!
But there's just something about good German leather.

And besides, I was just keeping the family tradition alive.


  1. Little DUI...it was a right of passage.....you had to do it to be a part of the family right?

  2. Bol! Great job there pupster!
    Tell yur mom to get sum duct tape. Fix those sandles back nearly good as new.

  3. WE remember the entire BI-Color Shoe Travel incident... VERY WELL.
    AND we remember the removal of the center strap... Birkie Revitalization ..
    AND how PROUD your mum was of her ingenious solution.
    WE believe that this is a FAMILY TRADITION and SAGA that was BOUND to continue.
    BTW we see that once again the RIGHT shoe was selected... being consistent is very nice.
    We are PROUD of you Dui... fur keeping the tradition going. BRAVO

  4. Great work Dui. Well done in upholding the family tradition.
    But surely it should be Tasty Chewsday? Or even Tasty Shoesday?
    Toodle pip!

  5. OMD she laughed her head off at that. Nothing like good German leather. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. BOL!!!! Good Job. I bet you were just teachin Dui how to make your own chew sticks.

  7. Momma laughed and laughed at this story!!!! She had a pair of sandals that she had to cut also.....stella rose

  8. MOL MOL MOL Dui...tasty Tuesday...that German strap must have tasted a tad like bratwurst. You make me so proud....little guy!
    Hugs madi your bfff

  9. A good chew toy is hard to find. When will they learn if we could reach it, it's ours

  10. i believe I may have munched on a pair of mum's Birkenstocks when I was a wee pup too!

    Edgar and his mum

  11. I would have chewed them also. German isn't that useful around here, so I bark in my native Spanish, having been born in a Mexican puppy mill.

  12. Ruh Roh. Oh Dui, I guess you just couldn't help yourself could you??! I remember the great taste of the leather between my toothers, and the way the leather would tickle my tongue as I slobbered it good to make it nice and supple....oh, I thinks I need to head to Ma's closet to gets me a good leather hightop....see ya!
    Oh...Nice job! ☺
    Ruby ♥

  13. Dui you look so cute in that photo! I can't believe little you chewed that strap on the shoe. Must have been aliens who chewed it apart!

  14. Well we would like to join in, nothing beats a good leather chew, hope you didn't do that while it was being used!

    Monty and Harlow

  18. Have not gone after moms sandals but oh I sure love to chew on her Skecher Slippers
    Bailey & Hazel too

  19. Well Dui, we know you are just trying to get your mum to put her shoes away right? I, Stella, am constantly having to pick up socks which our lazy peeps leave lying around. Good luck on training your mum mate. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  20. BOL! Dui, psst . . . confess to nothing unless there is video!

  22. Walter almost ruined one of mom's sandles but she caught him just in time.

  23. Oops - guess it is time to try a different brand of sandals:) That Dui just looks so innocent - what a cutie!!!

    Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

  24. I enjoy fine French leather - Mephistos - YUM!!!


  25. I think that face in the last picture pretty much sums it up :)

    Nice work, Dui!!

  26. BOL way to go Dui keeping the tradition alive or deaded.

    Aroo to you,

  27. You passed the initiation! Congratulations =)

  28. I was just thinking that maybe the German's should make their leather taste lousy and SHE won't have a problem.
    Alyssa, Mr. Fox & Scruffy

  29. Well....I think if they kept the shoes put up then this wouldnt have happened. Id say go with it and stick to that story!!

  30. German leather must be pretty tasty... *LOL* You still have the option of cutting the last strap off or... urmm.. improvise. No doggy was guilty i am sure. It was Birken's fault.

  31. Wee man - A true Celtic love of tradition !

  32. Dui...you have NAILED the side head look of innocence. OMD are there no limits to your Scottie-ness! High Five Paws!
    Wally & Sammy
    PeeS: sorry about the sandal...

  33. Oh no! SHE will be speaking German fluently before too long!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  34. Oh NO!!! DUI - they do not like it when we eat their shoes!!! (BOL!)

    Tail Wuggles, Rubie xxx

  35. Uh oh! Not a good thing. But when you look as cute as you do, all is forgiven we are sure.

  36. Flip Flops with my flop than flip.

    1. Flip Flops with more flop than flip.
      I think I want to make since of what I was saying. I think I want to make since of what I was trying to say! I think, I think!!!!

  37. Some peeps are really slow learners. Our Dad only learned to put the tv remote up after Tsar ate three of them in two days.

  38. Hey mum, look on the bright side, at least it wasn't a brand new car. LOL. PJ had bitten out every mudguard he could sink his teeth in. And since that wasn't enough, he ended up biting the fender too! On a brand new 2014 Pajero. LOL.
