Stackhouse says, “I am innocent until proven otherwise, and then I was doing you a favor getting rid of stuff.” “That way we can get something new around here.”

Opportunity and Motive set the stage for the red cabinet chewing incident. There is something about this red paint that is driving Stackhouse wild. Even today he tried to sneak into the bedroom. While there, he licked my bedside chest. He smacked his lips as he retreated upon command. Fortunately, I was standing right there when the licking occurred.
As the plot unfolded yesterday, Cliff brought the red Bedside chests inside after he finished the headboard installation. Cliff went to retrieve something else (can’t remember what), and upon return, he was shocked to hear the gnawing. Stackhouse got the skedaddle command or whatever Cliff said that meant that, and left the room. Honestly, I was pretty upset–breathing flames and snorting a few too! The threats sent Stack on the run even faster than when Cliff raised his voice–that is a huge exaggeration. Stackhouse doesn’t worry that much about anything, but it sounds good doesn’t it?
Had I have been on my toes I would have gotten a photo of the damaged chest; however, Cliff being a smart man grabbed it and ran out with it. About an hour later he returned with a new top –already painted. What a guy! I did capture the repaired red chest and some of what I swept up on the floor. So these chic red bedside chests have survived more than 24 hours. It remains to be seen if they last, but Mama wants them without teeth marks.
Tonight the dog tired humans had shared a new ball with Dusty first, and then Stackhouse got a turn at it. They both loved it. The difference was it was in perfect shape when Dusty finished using it. I promised to keep it for him. That may be a problem. Stackhouse positioned himself to look like he was being perfect and chewing on the ball. Chewing is fine–biting it apart, not so much. So, we have one less ball. Cliff could not glue it back together. Dusty will not be pleased.
