Don't ya just HATE those noisy cleany machines?? Me and Addi do too. I bark like a mad woman and I have taught Addi to bite it and growl at it. She used to just lay there and let it go by her without even batting an eye, so I had to inform her of what to do and she is good at it now. Well, anyways we thought that we had done this guy in pretty darn good. I mean Look at all the duct tape keeping it together and all of our teef marks are on it. Then the other day it died, dead as a doornail and me and Addi say good riddance to that nuisance!!
