I've been framed

Dear Doggies,

I have this problem you see and it is only because I am still young. I like to chew fingers. I have lots of toys and stuff to chew on, but there is just something about the fingers that is so addicting. It is a hard addiction to control and everytime I see a finger I start shaking and wiggling. I try to tell myself to forget the fingers, but it's no use. I tried this cold turkey stuff but sad to say I fell off the wagon big time. It's my Mom's fault that I was framed. She had to wave her fingers in my face. Well really she was just cleaning the sleep from my eyes. But I had just woken up from a dream of nice chewy fingers, so that is my defense. But Mom says all she needs is the pics and it's a closed case. Well I tried to avoid all pics but she kept getting me, but not chewing the fingers. Then when I caved she snapped away and I was caught. What should I do?

Maggie, I know where you're coming from. Since my younger puppy days, I've always had a thing for fingers. Actually hands in general. It's a tough habit to kick. But let me tell you a little secret... It's all about choosing the right fingers to chew on... Daddy is a softie and he let's me get away with murder... So whenever I need a fix, I go straight to him!~

maggie rose,

you are not alone! me too! but that was like few months ago. how old are you? maybe when you grow older, you will forget fingers are not really that yummy but treats are! :-)

my hooman were worried too at first but gradually they forgot all about it coz i stop biting their hands.

so, ask your mama to be patience and wait for you to grow a little older. if she couldn't take it, i read from somewhere that whenever you start biting fingers, get your mama to give you treats and it will distract you.

hope that helps!

Maggie, you can do what I do. I pretend that I just want to lick the fingers (people touch such yummy things). Then as I'm licking, I just pretend like my tongue just accidentally wrapped around the finger. Then I just give it a quick chew and pretend to try to spit it out. My girl doesn't get mad that way. hehehe.

ps. I got your card today. Very cute!

Sounds like an endearing habit to me.

Yep I agree but sometimes I get a little to excited and bite just a little too hard. But like you I can chew on Dad's fingers and he just laughs when I bite too hard. Mom has more delicate fingers.

I am 8 months old but I still love to play and with Dad I can play rough but Mom doesn't have the tough skin on her fingers. I am learning though.

I will have to give it a try and see what happens. Thank you about the card, Mom didn't have enough time to make cards so she bought them and I just had to put my pawsonal touch on them.

Joe, I couldn't agree with you more. She has been following me around with that camera all the time. I have tried moving alot but she has figured out how to distract me to make me stay still. I've got to work on that.

Bussie, That is what I have been trying to tell her but she says that sometimes I bite a little too hard. I guess sometimes I forget it's her fingers and not a sausage link.

Paws & Kisses to all,
Maggie R
