Stepped out for 5 minutes but left my 8 month old GSP unattended... hard lessons learned.

Ouch!

I’ll betcha a banjo neck, leather strap, or even an instrument case, would make for mighty good chomping also.

Time to elevate the goods up out of reach.

Does GSP stand for Greedy Starving Puppy?

His motivation via food would certainly make one think it! 

Oldtimefeeling - Posted - 05/07/2021:  14:35:50


He's apparently anti-union as well it seems...

Puppies.....it happens.

I have a early 1900’s Whyte Laydie banjo that my dear 1st puppy put little milk teeth pin dings in the heel of some 50 odd years ago. I was way upset then, but I would happily sacrifice that banjo now just to be able to pat that dogs head again.

Every time I play that banjo and see those little marks I think of her, so not a bad thing overall. Hold on to that book long enough and you will feel the same way.

Well it use to be at a non reachable level. Suppose that its time to move everything up again. An issue I havent had with the chihuahua hahaha

Our first GSP puppy also loved books, and was discriminating in his “tastes” as well. He “digested” our copy of “How to Raise and Train a German Shorthaired Pointer,” before we had a chance to even begin it. We kept the tattered book and, like Mr. Condor, are grateful now that it reminds us of that dog, those good times, and what we’ve come to recognize, four Shorthairs later, as how that raising and training really occurs.

I feel your pain Bato!  I see you made a spelling mistake in your post above.



"Well it use to be at a non reachable level. Suppose that its time to move everything up again. An issue I havent had with the chihuahua hahaha"



You didn't need the space in that sentence,  I spell it Chihuauahahaha! ( Just Kidding!) surprise

My cat threw up a hairball onto my Lakota 3” strap recently. I assume she felt very proud of herself.

This post reminds me of another post a year or two ago where someone's cat peed in their banjo case.

hbick2 - Posted - 05/08/2021:  04:15:54


A number of years ago, I had a custom Calton case made for an open back banjo. I purchased it through a dealer friend of mine who shipped it with a case cover on it that belonged to his brother. The idea was to protect the case in shipping and then I would send the cover back. When it arrived, I unpacked it and set it down on the floor. Almost immediately, our male cat walked over and peed on the case cover. I looked closely at the cover and it had the logo "Small Dog" on it. I didn't even know the cat could read. Needless to say, I got to keep the case cover.

I'll have to remember that the next time my neighbor's dog starts howling at 3 o'clock in the morning.

I dealt with the issue by telling Lily "This is your banjo. I'll play it from time to time, but you guard it." Problem solved.

When my dog was learning to talk, her first complete sentence was



"I am an atomic dog!"



So I asked her what that MEANS.



She replied



"I only chew on objects made of atoms."



To which I responded



"Everything in my [ EXPLETIVE DELETED] house is made of atoms.



To which she calmly replied:

"I am well aware of that.  We have nothing further to discuss!"



And she never said another word.

You are wrong about nothing being sacred to a puppy. Chewing is sacred to all puppies; it's just not sacred to their owners.

I read GSP as German Sheppard puppy. Or German Shedder puppy.

No. I got these picture off the internet. The only dogs I ever owned were beagles. And they were just as bad at chewing when they were puppies. 

banjowannabe - Posted - 05/11/2021:  05:11:21


So is that what they mean when they say the book was dog-eared?

GranaryTreeMusic - Posted - 05/11/2021:  10:53:25


Incidentally if anyone ever needs an upland hunting vest for their pup, my pops has a company out of Yakima called Cuga Vest that makes these. They work great for GSPs, and GSPs work great in them!



 

bustedknuckle - Posted - 05/18/2021:  15:45:22


Yup. Your perspective is all wrong.
EVERYTHING a puppy can chew on is either food or a baby teeth pacifier. And hence sacred. I'm not sure which one I am. Maybe both.

Someone said, "There's black velvet in my case will you go get in there."


Oldtimefeeling - Posted - 05/19/2021:  21:28:21


At least they're adorable
