Those Darn Dogs

Yesterday at lunch my wife Sydnie arrived home and found that our lovely beagles Erwin and Whitley had destroyed our futton.  There was futton all over the house.  Now they have been chewing on stuff ever since we moved.  We are trying to find a way to keep them in the backyard, but they keep digging under the fence.  Yesterday I bought some chili powder and sprinkled it around the edge of the fence.  This is supposed to keep them from digging.  It also caused me to sneeze for about an hour afterwards.  I love the dogs, BUT they are beginning to move to my bad list.  Did I mention that one of them peed on my surround sound speaker.  I am trying to be a man of love, compassion, and patience.  I am tested everyday.
