Dog-Powered Stump Grinder

:sigh: Iko's handiwork. This stump is in his dog run.

At least he's not eating live trees. He's slowly stripping this stump down to a nub. I figure he might be done with it by winter's end. Greg is pleased. He doesn't have to grind it down now.

You know the worst part? He drags in these big chunks of bark through the doggie door and into my studio. I've dealt with a lot of rotties, but hand to heart, I have never encountered a puppy with so much jaw strength. You should see him with his Kong toys. I can't even squeeze it under my foot, yet he gnaws on it as if it were soft chewing gum.

Oy. Vey.

When he's done with that, do you suppose he'll start on the live ones?

Dakota has zero interest in her kong. I should send it to Iko! LOL...

He hasn't touched the live stuff yet, though I have seen him tear out a root, which I think is from this tree stump. He's thorough. I'll give him that.

Fortunately, he should be nearing the end of his chewy stage. Probably only a month or more--I hope.
