Missing Eggs

Generally all my puppies have outgrown their chewing habits after several months. Then along came Echo. I can't keep up with her thievery. She is over a year old now and still will investigate and take anything not attached. Lisa gave me 18 eggs from her chickens. I was in a hurry to go to my obedience lesson so quickly put them in the far back of the car-out of dog reach I thought. Each dog got their training time, after the last dog was done I opened the back of the van to put my obedience bag away and found a partially chewed egg carton.

No broken eggs but one egg missing. I was puzzled-had Lisa only given me 17 eggs? The 18th egg remained elusive, that is until I looked in the middle part of the van. A few broken eggshells were present. Echo had climbed over the back seat, chewed through the egg carton, picked up the egg and climbed back to the middle of the van to eat it-all without breaking the egg! Although I rarely muzzle my dogs Echo may be the exception-at least until she learns what is hers and what is not.

But look at the proud expression on Echo's face with her gentle handling of the uncooked egg!! :) I'm having to fence off the plum tree again as Becca is bound and detemined to prune it down to a stump.
