teething. (10) If you dont watch her, shell chew anything, including her sister, the cat. There are plenty of chew toys around the

She gets really (15) frustrated because what she wants is to bury the thing. Shell try to dig a hole (16) between the cushions of the
couch. Finding (17) that (18) unsatisfactory, shell wander some more, discontent, until you solve her problem for her. I usually
