Dear Frank: My human gets really mad every time I chew up her art supplies. I'm just trying to get in touch with my creative side. How can I make her see that I'm not trying to be destructive and that I am just working on my masterpiece?
Sincerely, George in California
Dear George: This is a perfect situation for a technique I like to call "brilliant naughtiness". "Brilliant naughtiness" is when you do "naughty" so well all your human can do is laugh in amazement. What if you make a picture with the chewed art supplies? Dip you paws in paint and walk on a canvas? You get the picture. The more creative the less discipline.
