Choppy is generally well behaved.

It has not, however, always been that way.

As a puppy, Choppy – like all puppies – had to learn basic good behavior. As a shoe lover, I spent many hours worrying that my shoes would fall victim to an overly enthusiastic chewer who only saw them as pieces of leather, rather than as something I needed to go about my daily life.

In the end, two flip-flops and one heel fell victim to her before I trained her out of this (thankfully short-lived) phase. I did, however, get a picture of the end of one of the two flip-flops at the time.

The actions depicted in this picture are far more adorable now, with the passage of years, than they were at the time.
