    Default My poor couch!!!

    So I have 2 spare couches in the garage... paid $800 for them brand new about a year ago but we moved house and bought new couches to match the (terrible) green carpets in this house so these ones have been living in the garage since then, and come in handy for when we have parties, drunk guests etc. When we first got Meika she chewed the arm rest on the 2 seater but the 3 seater is fine and I've been trying to sell it.

    Lately when I've been leaving for work at 3am and my partner is away, I've been putting the dogs in the garage so they don't need to go outside in the cold and everything has been great We went out for dinner last night and I put them in the garage again, plenty of chew toys, pigs ears and 2 kongs went in there with them as well as a 1hr run at the park about 30 mins before going in the garage.

    We came back 2hrs later to find this.....

    When we opened the door Molly came running towards us happy like usual and Meika was hiding in the corner.. I took a step towards her and she peed herself. I know dogs aren't meant to remember what they've done but I'm 100% positive that it was Meika and that she knew EXACTLY what she had done. We didn't get mad, it's hard to when she pees herself just from knowing that you've found what she's done.. she must have really been abused in the past, and what's done is done! But I'm still annoyed that it was the 3 seater that got eaten.. I wish it was the 2 seater that has already been eaten, then I'd have at least 1 still in good condition... this is why I'll NEVER leave them alone in my house with access to my $2000 leather couches :P

    So we're off to take 2 couches to the dump on the weekend unless anyone is wanting a half-eaten couch for their dogs to sleep on

    They know dam well what they have done !!!LOL.

    Does ya head in hey .
    I'm off to the tip today because Mojo decide after 11months to destroy his bed for the fun of it. I was wondering why he did it ??? But the snoring coming from my bedroom at the moment gives me a idea what his little plan is !!! If they can destroy evrything they can sleep on sooner or later the only place left will be thier owners bed.
    They are all cunning and evil pooches who want to take over the main bed in the house LOL.

    Actually, i'd just throw a cover/blanket over it . I'd gladly sleep on that if i was hammered.

    Well the guilty look dog give us usually comes from our reaction , even if we try to stay level-headed and not show anger/disgust/displeasure...Som dogs are very sensitive, some not at all LOL...........I know from video re-play in the past ( they put up a security video as per my request), that the dog who had the "guilty look" in someone's house hold, was not the perpetrator....The non-guilty looking dog was. But the one, who had not done any of the damage, was much more sensitive to the owners reaction. Considering the owner was thinking of getting rid of the dog that did the damage, it was nearly the wrong dog.......But they are both fine now

    Interesting! Meika's reaction wasn't due to our reaction though, we didn't even know there was any damage, it was only after we saw her hide and pee herself that we saw the couch. I just had another look and there was a dirty tea-towl from the laundry (in the garage) that was stolen and hidden behind the couch cushions... I'm guessing because it smelt like food one dog stole it, 'burried' it and the other dog went in search and destroyed the couch in the process.

    Oh you poor thing KM. Ruby has done her fair share of damage, but being a sewer of patchwork quilts, I'm pretty good at patching things back together ... dog bed has been repaired twice and back in for another repair, and the reattaching of limbs off stuffed toys is a regular occurrence - there's always a couple of her toys on my sewing table, lol.

    Is it just the seat cushion ? can you get it repaired?

    The de-stuffing must be very exciting to a dog, it's Ruby's favourite weapon of mass destruction!

    Ouch!

    I'm glad mine aren't really destructive. I keep mine locked in my bedroom when I am away and they don't touch a thing.

    Mums new puppy on the other hand will chew, eat, destroy everything in her path.

    Yes, de-stuffing is apparently the best thing ever- might need to give it a try when my dogs start buying expensive things :P It is just the seat cushion but it's one of those couches where the cushion is built into the couch so repairing it might get a bit costly! Maybe I could just put a blanket on it like Sean said and leave in in the garage and if they get the urge to de-stuff again, it doesn't really matter because it's already ruined!

    This is a video I took after.. Meika knows what the 'ohhh' noise means, haha, watch her just slink up those stairs and Molly run after her like "hey! Where are you going!".. Gotta love the guilty and the clueless! They also destroyed that blue fold-out chair while we were gone, lucky somebody left it there after a party and never claimed it so no great loss!

    LOL. awwww. It's not funny nor cute when it happens to me. But it really *IS* when it happens to you.
    Wish home insurance covered it.
    Have to say Nekhbet's help was invaluable and the stop-crib paste has been a godsend.
