The Bag Rod-y

Like most of us, Rod loves the sound of a good paper tear.  His favorite part of any shopping trip is when I come home and give him the receipt or paper bag to rip to shreds.  He gets really into it and I am pretty sure he is imagining something other than paper being ripped apart.

When the paper has been properly killed, he lays down and lets the shreds envelope his body.

Once we reach this stage, I like to try to pick up the pieces, however I learned early this is not part of Rod's basking plan.

He goes from laying blissfully... claiming his pieces.  Apparently, I have not received the necessary clearance to touch the bag pieces.

This look clearly says, "don't touch my stuff, lady."

Cleaning time has been post-poned.


  1. We admire the ability to negotiate that you share with your human, especially in issues like torn bags and ownership of its pieces:)

  2. Jasper also likes to rip apart/open anything with paper. If it crinkles it is his enemy & he must destroy it immediately!! Although, he is not possessive over the remaining pieces, he does like to make sure that every single bit of whatever it was is completely destroyed:)

  3. i guess that crinkling sound is irresistible! kill anything that makes a sound! ;) thank you for your comments!

  4. haha! Great story.
