What A BAD BOY! Saved by Oxy Clean!

Well in the past few months our Knight, the 11 month old black lab pup has been trying us at every turn. He's chewed up a bunch of plastic statues we left out for the winter in the pond area in the back yard, hes chewed up big holes in my Husband' s tee shirt and socks. Knight has destroyed over 10 rubber toys. He has tried to grind his teeth on my new dining room chairs. He's gouged up a 4 inch section of wall in our pool table room either with his teeth or his claws and ate the plaster! This week he got a hold of a plastic ink pen, somehow stealing it from my purse, and chewed it up to pieces and left a couple of big blue stain on my almost new blue carpet in the family room!!!!!

This little boy is heading for a quick trip to the human society if he doesn't get smarter and quit the chewing on everything! Its not like he doesn't have snacks galor. My Hubby buys all kinds of Milk bones, chewy sticks, and rawhide bones and he rewards the both of them after every trip they make outdoors to relieve themselves.

We tried Tide, hairspray, multipurpose cleaners, even gasoline, and could not get the stains out of the carpet. Caroline reminded me to check online for what the do. All the attempts to clean it just spread it further and just made it worse. Online I read about using OXY CLEAN laundry detergent mixed with 70% rubbing alcohol and a little warm water, and to apply it and let it stand for about 5-10 minutes on the stain. Later we rinsed it with some warm water on a rag and Glory BE!!! It did take the stain out! Let me tell you, that I had bought some Oxy Clean years ago and used it for an additive to my laundry, but I never noticed a big difference in my laundry, but NOW I am convinced that it does remove stains. If I didn't try looking it up on the inter net, I may have never found the solution to my problem.

I guess Knight has a reprieve for right now. but he is really testing our nerves and our patience.

UPDATE:

Last night we discovered that KNIGHT ate two big mouth sized chunks of material off the bottom of my Husband's new winter COAT!!!! While he was sleeping the dog decided to munch on the coat for exercize. We found only small remnants of pieces of material laying on the floor below the coat that was hanging on the back of our dining room chair. !!! This little boy is heading for the dog pound really fast at this rate! WHAT ELSE ARE WE TO DO????

You are more patient than me Caroline's Mum. That dog would have been history.

That Oxy Clean must be like our Napisan, I love the stuff, but now I know it gets carpet stains out too.

I love the net you can find anything. I lost the recipe book for my breadmaker, and yep found it online and printed it out. And this breadmaker is 12 years old!

Oxy Clean is a miracle maker sometimes.

I have 2 black labs - and oh boy...they LOVE LOVE LOVE to chew. Well, not anymore because they are older. Hang in there - it should get better in the next year of his life.

The only thing my dogs have never been able to chew-up is a Kong - the biggest size they have. All other toys were demolished. You might try that (stick a bone inside the Kong and it should keep him busy for a long time).

That stain removal tip is great. I'll try to remember that. Thanks Paula.
