Faith is fixated on putting things in her ears and up her nose. I don't know why, but I assume it's a phase and as phases go, this one is pretty high on my "Shit I wish she'd grow out of already" list. Every time she wakes up, I have to pull blanket fuzz out of her nose and ears because apparently that's a super fun midnight activity. It's not just limited to blanket fuzz, but paper products are typically her favorite nose food. She chews it up like a spit ball and then shoves it up her nose. I'm better at nose spit ball retrieval than anyone should be.
This morning started earlier than usual, so I was a little out of it when I got up with her and I didn't notice her "helping" Peanut eat her breakfast until she came over to proudly show me that she had jammed a piece of dog kibble into each ear. Good thing I noticed before Peanut did and started chasing her around the house!
During our run today, Faith had a Chewy granola bar (well, the Target brand rip off kind) with chocolate chips. She has one of these on every run, but today she decided that those chocolate chips would be more fun to insert up her nose than to eat. The best part was trying to figure out what on earth she had done to herself when we got home.
|Hey Mommy, let's play the "What's on my face??" game!|
|It's ok, I only need one side for breathing|
|Mommy, why does everything smell like chocolate?|
At first I was really worried because she had shoved that chocolate really far up, but then I realized that it would just melt (and make a huge mess) and be fine. I sent my husband the pictures and he said that it looks like I beat her, so at least this happened in the privacy of my house.
When she's not shoving foreign objects up her nose, she's getting herself stuck somewhere in the house. She will wedge herself places like the entertainment center or bookshelf (which is empty because she eats books) and then be unable or unwilling to free herself. Yesterday she topped herself with this ridiculous situation:
|I think this was a bad judgment call on my part|
|It's got me! HELP! HELP!|
|Mommy. Put the camera down and help me already.|
She's going to love that picture when she's in high school.
If you're wondering what Peanut was doing while all this was happening, here's her past two days in a nutshell:
|It's really too bad she can't relax and make herself at home|
Peanut was at the kennel over the weekend (since we were gone all day Sunday and she has time sensitive medications) and it's like a middle school aged kid going to a sleepover: she doesn't seem to sleep at all. When you combine that with the group play times, she comes home exhausted. I love it, especially since Peanut has the same inclination to find trouble as Faith, like the time she cornered this in the yard and I had to save her from herself.
|Much bigger than it looks here and freaking pissed that a dog was barking at it|
Any funny stories about things up noses or crazy animals your pet has tried to eat?
