O.K. then. She did it again (#3 here). Third time. Same spot. I don't think she ate the paint this time, but used her claw to scratch at the paint -- a spot about the size of a baseball.
What can I assume about this situation?
The dog lost her mind? Well, she's normal in every other way.
She has some odd nutritional deficiency? I don't think she ate the paint this time, so probably not.
There is something inside the wall that she smells? I'd really rather not think that thought, especially since I can not get inside the wall without ripping the drywall off the wall.
She is extremely bored and finds it very exciting to scratch the paint off the wall in the exact same place three times? I can think of about a million things more exciting even for a dog.
Are there are dog whisperers among my readers? Any thoughts? Any suggestions?
