Good dogs gone bad

Our pups are angels.. most of the time. Like any dog they have had their slip ups – but today was probably the worst. I came home to a torn up sofa with stuffing all over the living room. This was the first time they have ever touched the furniture. Yes, they have chewed up newspaper and magazines before (photo below), but never this extreme! I’m not sure why now all of a sudden it started, but I think it may have to do with me traveling and being gone so much lately. Plus they have been getting their walks in the evenings instead of the morning because it is too darn hot outside – so their schedule has been thrown off quite a bit. Nonetheless, they (or I should say Roxy since I’m 110% sure she’s the guilty one) were very bad dogs today.

I went to Michaels and bought needles and thread and sewed the hole in our couch back together. It’s not perfect, but it will have to do for a while. Sorry I don’t have any pictures of our poor couch – I’m trying to erase any evidence that it ever happened so I’ll forget about it!

Now, what to do with Roxy?? Brad and I both agreed that it is time she goes back into her kennel when we are not home. Perhaps we gave her freedom of the house just a little bit too early. Wishful thinking on our part..

What is the worst thing your dog has ever chewed up? My friend Matt Goodman has a hilarious site Things My Dog Ate.  The site is so popular that they created a television show about it!

Got something to say? Go for it!
