Emma’s biggest flaw was her occasional destructive chewing. Mostly this was just when she was a young puppy. But the few weeks before she went into season this weakness came out again. (It isn’t unusually for dogs in heat to do this.) In retrospect the funniest incident was with an ink pen. Bill lost a pen out of his pocket. Emma and Sandler (who We were puppy sitting) found the pen and starting playing with it. We were downstairs and when we discovered them, Sandler was the one who looked guilty. He was covered in blue ink along with the carpet but Emma was the one who pooped blue for the next couple of days.
