This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things…

January 15, 2014 2 Comments

I previously posted about the nice, new dog bed the boys got for Christmas. I had several pictures of them sitting in it and sleeping in it.

Well, that nice dog bed is now a destroyed dog bed. This was the mess I came home to the other night after work. The dog bed was ripped open, the cushion pulled out, and the stuffing inside the cushion was scattered all over the floor.

I could NOT believe it!

Look how innocent they both look. “What Mom? This is how it was when you left for work. We swear.” My guess is Teddy did the initial ripping, but Cubbie couldn’t resist helping to pull out the stuffing.

I thought maybe I could put the stuffing back in or even get new stuffing and just sew the bed back up, but it’s ripped in so many places and at different angles, I’m not sure I can make it work.

The good news, apparently Cubbie doesn’t mind sleeping in a stuffing-less dog bed.

    This is too funny! It sounds so much like one of our dogs. He has chewed through a dog bed, too, and also a Thunder Shirt, a fleece blanket, his leash while at the groomer’s,a harness, a flip flop, and numerous toys. He eats ear plugs, gum (including the wrapper and box), a bandana, and garbage. Gotta love ‘em! I really enjoy reading about your two guys. You sound like the kind of dog mom that I am. :-)

    I had a dog a few yrs ago who carried around a blanket. And I didn’t have the heart to get rid of it when I had to put him down. Well that same year I ended up being blessed with a new born kitten the neighbor found , the mother left it under his garage and he called me to come over to their house. He thought if anyone could keep this kitten alive I would be me. So I took it home then took it to the vet Couldn’t even tell what sex it was as young as it was. The vet gave the kitten maybe 72 hours of life. Well I turned into the mama cat!!! I taught her everything.bottle feed her. And all the mama cats do…. well back to the blanket the cat now is called She. And She pulls that blanket around everywhere.And I mean everywhere. You never know where you will find it next.If she’s got it she’s usually got a hold of it by one corner and laying on it. What a big baby She is… And she is now almost 3 yrs old. With attitude as well ..
