What would YOUR pup do?

What would your puppy do if you left him home unattended with free reign of the house for eight hours? We came home last night to realize that we had forgotten to crate our six month old drahthaar pup and had given him free reign of our house for 8 hours. Fortunately, he did not poop, pee, or vomit ...

I had my pup chipped as soon as I got him at 8 weeks old. He yipped when it was inserted but it was only slightly more than when he got his shot. I guess some dogs react differently than others. I am much more comfortable knowing he has both a tattoo and a chip.
