Update: Holly the Boston Terror

16 Sep

In my blog about Marley & Me, I introduced you to my parents’ lively Boston Terrier named Holly – the sweet, yet destructive pet they’ve had for about a year now.

Her latest adventures:
-Grabbed green bell pepper off of kitchen table, ate entire pepper before my mom knew it was missing.  She found seed remnants in three rooms.
-After the screen had been replaced entirely on the back porch, she ate her way through two pieces on a boring weekday (while everyone else was at work).
-Nabbed a loaf of bread off the kitchen table, tore hole in bag and slobbered on a few pieces while my mom chased her through the house.
-Attempted suicide by taking a bottle of Ambien off the nightstand and helping herself to a few.  Guess what?  It didn’t phase her.

I’ve decided that she is hyperactive and depressed all at the same time.  Maybe if they leave small doses of Adderall and Zoloft lying around, the problem will take care of itself.

    I was babysitting a friend’s bull mastiff a year or so ago. And I came home and she had eaten an entire container of cherry tomatoes and about half a bag of birdseed.
