I left a couple of rolls of clear tape on my table saw in the garage after Christmas. I was in the backyard with the dog today and found him chewing on one. Seriously, clear hockey tape? How did some animal species exist prior to be domesticated?

This could be a long post but I’ll keep it short.
As I cruised through the garage the other day to grab some wood for the fire we were having, I chuckled when I saw that several years ago I had stacked the wood at the end of the garage using an old beater of a stick wedged between a small shelf and the wood pile so that I could stack the wood higher than it could have been stacked otherwise.
We’ve also used a stick more than once to unclog a laundry shoot that occasionally gets plugged in our old house. I’ve chased a squirrel out of the house with a stick and there’s been a stick in the backyard for years that I use to shoot old Milo’s fetch ball (our family golden) across the yard to give him exercise.
The golden retriever in this hockey player’s family has proven that yes they can. A couple of years back, I was out in the garage and noticed that the old bucket of pucks had been moved from a higher shelf to a lower one where our Golden had access to it.
The bucket didn’t look as full as I thought it should so I headed for the backyard where he hangs out and sure enough, there were several pucks in a “chewed” state. Some were almost half gone. Now to be fair, golden’s sometimes just chew and don’t swallow what they are chewing but I didn’t see a whole lot of puck shavings around the scene of the crime.
