Connecting moms in Polk County, Fla.
Even though this is a parenting site and I'm sure we could make a list a mile long of objects our children have destroyed (please feel free to add those stories here too) but I couldn't help but feel obliged to share a link (below) and my own story.
One of my first great danes was a 9 month old rescue. He was already a whopping 150 pound puppy. All puppy. I came home from work one day and found him laying in a hole. A 150 pound dane sized hole. In the couch. I could not believe the destruction that dog could do and the amount of cushion fill everywhere. He was a sweet boy and did eventually grow out of his chewing, or I should say, creating havoc stage.
What about you, do you have a ruined story about your pet?
Check out my inspiration for this post with these photos that just might actually make you love your pet more.
One of the first things I did when I graduated college and moved out of my parents house was get a dog. We weren't allowed to have pets growing up so I knew nothing. I found the cutest little 6 pound puppy at the pound. They said she was a terrier mix, wouldn't be too big. I adopted that cute girl and brought her home to my apartment. When I took her to the vet he said "nice looking lab you've got there" I said, um...no...she's a terrier mix" He laughed and said maybe lab mixed with some terrier but she's mostly lab. When I would go to work I'd gate her in the kitchen of my apartment since she wasn't housetrained yet and that's where the tile was. I came home one day and she had chewed and torn a pretty large hole in the drywall of the kitchen!! :O
I currently have a couch in my living room that one side is clawed to the wood from a cat we used to have. With 5 kids who are rough on the furniture anyway I haven't been able to convince my husband that couch really needs to go. Luckily we don't have company often...
