Insider Trading

Collect your pennies, folks.  It's time for you to go out and buy stock on cheap pillows.

A certain little white dog has realized after eleven and half years that he's a terrier, and that terriers dig.  He's got a lot of catching up to do, and he's on a mission.

With the threat of being skinned to repair any of my furniture that he damages hanging over his head, our little white hero has concentrated on digging his own bed.  His crate, which is the preferred hangout, is the perfect size to house a standard pillow.  In the past, cheap $3 pillows from Zellers have lasted a year before being replaced due to *ahem* a certain doggy smell.

In the last couple of weeks, he's been digging through the pillow cover in a day.  Even if I flip them over - yes, I'm cheap - I can only get a couple of days out his pillows before the stuffing flies everywhere.

At this rate, I am going to single handedly finance a pillow factory.

I wonder if anybody makes chain link pillow cases?


  1. Is the replacement pillow the same density every time, maybe he's lookeing for a softer spot.

  2. Dogs. You just gotta love 'em. Sometimes I don't know why, but you just do. :)
