One large sofa pillow bit the dust the other day.
Once again a subject was chosen due to the spectacular mess it leaves when destroyed.
Dogs unaware of the destruction around them. Well, Jack did seem a bit proud for the rest of that evening.
PS This photo was taken after the cleaning up of the mess
hat trick; Function: noun; 3 : a series of three victories, successes, or related accomplishments.
We had been away in Prague so the destruction was understandable and quickly forgiven... despite the sentimental value that had just been so efficiently decimated.
Krtek (hedge hog) is a children's classic in the Czech Republic and I guess his colourful hat was simply too tempting not to tear into. It made also a spectacular mess across a large area.
Kasper was a children's book and it's fatal characteristic was that it had a squeaking cow at the center. Once again too good to pass up on.
Finally we have the present that was not yet delivered and never will be after the butchery. A lovely Vera Wang on Weddings book. Hardcover, extra tasty.
This phone was a replacement for an eaten phone. It had just been broken in when it nearly met it's maker.
Only the display was busted so it was still possible to receive calls but much harder selecting entries from the phone book leading to some very random calls.
Funny thing with a teared appart shoe is how useless the other shoe becomes. Unless two pairs were purchased and miraculously the dog eats the other shoe from the other pair.
Loosing this shoe was especially painful. I had spent a fair amount of time selecting the model while on a visit to Sweden but not being able to find the right size.
Later that weekend I found the right size at Copenhagen airport but at a 50% higher price (what's up with those inflated Duty Free prices anyway).
With the latest destruction of our fine home phone, I have decided it is too much to keep quite about.
The humanity has to know.
A new category (The dog ate it) has been created and I expect to post regularly to it.
