a california dog is a happy dog

and apparently, a dog who comes back to new york from california is a dog who needs to express their discontent in a variety of ways, such as:

1. by ripping up her owner's favorite plush piggy slippers into shreds of foam

2. by chewing up the corners of her carrier and leaving pieces of material all over the floor (maybe this was to protest the 7 hours spent on the plane)

3. by eating 12 chinese rice crackers (about 6 human servings) and one large bag of spicy japanese rice crackers (about 3 human servings), and leaving a mess all over the living room rug, furniture and the like

4. by then puking up the above-mentioned crackers 4 hours later in three spots on the above-mentioned rug

5. by shedding about a pound of fur (keep in mind that the dog is only 15 pounds) each day

6. by licking her owner's feet and then immediately thereafter trying to lick her owner's mouth (ok, so she did this way before she ever went to california)

maybe it's not such a good idea to take a new york city dog to california 4 times before she turns 10 months old. i think the ridiculous amount of grass there spoils them.

but, then again, how can you not, when your dog looks at you like this:
