Cashew’s Nutty Friday

27 May

So, one of the nuts in my house will be a little less nutty by the end of the day. That’s right,

Cashew,. MommaNut, Peanut

Cashew is going under the knife to ensure he doesn’t make any walnuts in his future. I’m hoping his adventure at the vet helps calm him down a bit, because he has been the nuttest little guy ever.

In fact, both of our Chihuahuas have been extremely nutty lately. It could be our fault, naming them after nuts, but I think it is just their personality. And yes, I do believe dogs have personalities. Case in point: As soon as PoppaNutand I got Cashew, Peanut was so fussy. She snubbed me all the time, and even gave me nasty looks. She was furious that I would dare bring another nut into our family. Wasn’t she enough? I could see the disappointment all over her face.

Now, let's pose for a photo!

Over time, they started to bond. I thought they had become great doggie siblings until last night. I came home to the ultimate mess, courtesy of Cashew and Peanut. The puppies stay in our large spare bathroom during the day … they have been messy with Cashew still learning the potty rules in the house, but nothing like last night.

It literally looked like they had a pillow fight, but instead of feathers, there were tiny pieces of the potty pad EVERYWHERE! Their toys were covered in the filling … and that was only the beginning of it. Their beds were flipped over and nothing was in its place. Do they practice WWF wrestling when we are at work?

Peanut won't even look at Cashew

I swear it might be time for a nanny camera, so I just see just what these nuts are up to. Anyway, I assumed it was Cashew up to the no good, and I punished him for it. Then, last night, after we had tucked the little nuts into their bed, I heard a scratching noise. Visions of torn-apart potty pads danced in my head, so PoppaNut crept up the stairs to see it first hand. As he flipped on the lights, you’ll never guess who the culprit was ….. PEANUT!

That sassy little girl was tearing up that potty pad! Now, Cashew was around too, so he wasn’t innocent. I guess you just never know what is really going on until you catch them in the act! I was completely shocked! Here, I thought sweet, innocent Peanut was being traumatized during the day by Cashew’s shenanigans … and it turns out, she is his accomplice!

So, that’s life in a nutshell today … hoping that Nutless Friday helps calm down our two crazy nuts.
