    Or to just get a break and have a small piece of mind. I mean....who hasn't stolen a stinky bear off the table? Or pulled kleenex out of the box because you can. Or wait for the towels to be folded and yank the bottom one out in an attempt to see if the rest will remain folded. (I'm sure some of you have attempted this with a table cloth!!) These I'm sure are normal behaviors and not Orion trying to make a statement, right?

    She gets such a bad rap. Her every little indiscretion is recorded and put on youtube for all to see.

    This morning I went to the grocery store and decided to only crate my sofa-chewing-Finn, and leave Tate out. I closed off most of the rooms except for the living/dining and bedroom where the crates are. Tate is so cute and he ran to the door as I left then peeked out the window to see what I was up to. I returned about 40 minutes later and there he was, sitting on the sofa so quietly, waiting for mommy. Such a good boy!

    After I put the groceries away, I wanted to go for a walk around the block. So, this time I let Finn out of his crate too. I made sure to spray the duct-tape-covered-sofa with plenty of Bitter Apple. Both of them were left to their own devices for about 15-20 minutes as I took my walk. I returned home and the sofa was still intact! no old duct tape was chewed off, no new spots were ripped apart.
    Now I feel a teensy-weensy bit more confident that I can allow them out of their crates in small doses while I'm out of the house. I'm so proud of my boys
    Excellent!! Bitter Apple is "da bomb". I've been using it on our furniture since Blue was a pup and after a while, he wouldn't even try to gnaw/bite anymore.
    Good work!
