"Thanks and thanks again to Him who offers to the man whom the sorrows of life have assaulted and left naked–offers to him the fig leaf of the Word with which he can cover his wretchedness." -Søren Kierkegaard

Moose

Posted in Day-To-Day by matt on Tuesday, November 16, 2010

This is Moose. You’ve probably heard us talk about this particular housemate, so I thought I’d tell you a little about him. The verdict’s still out on how I feel about Moose. He may look sad and pathetic (which he is), but don’t let those big baleful yellow eyes fool you. Moose is about as sweet as a goat.

He. Eats. Everything.

Don’t believe me? Here’s a list of things Moose has eaten:

rocks, logs, catfood, full family sized bag of Rolos, used Q-tips, an entire loaf of banana bread, hot chocolate, a duck, coke, Tabasco Sauce, Burger King, peanut butter, metal house siding, lots of stuffed animals, a squeaky toy, one of his collars, a whole tray of roasted veggies (he left the brussels sprouts), entire tennis balls, the Arby’s #1 value meal, half a bag of almonds, cowboy boots, a couple bars of dark chocolate, tree branches, one of Cayla’s wooden spoons, a large part of a fence, coffee grounds, Taco Bell, pecans (upon inspection, it didn’t seem like they’d been chewed at all), several loaves of regular bread, and that’s only the stuff we’re aware of.

Needless to say, this dog eats when he’s bored. Cayla may never forgive him for eating an entire loaf of her banana bread, but I did manage to snap this rare shot of her trying to impersonate him. Yay for reconciliation.

    hilarious! I’m glad our dog is not the only crazy one who eats EVERYTHING. he has zero toys left, because he has devoured all of them.
