Exhibit #1 - Lounge Room Curtains
The red thing on the floor in front of the curtains is Toby's bed. As the family's new guard dog it's important for him to have good visibility of the turf that he has to guard and the front patio is a vital place in terms of family security. The curtains were getting in his way so a small alteration to them was required. Obviously I will not be replacing these until he's a little older.
Exhibit #2 - The Hallway Carpet
In Toby's defence, he did not start this destruction. Nelson did about six months ago. Toby just decided to continue Nelson's legacy and extend the hole. We tried gluing it down but Toby has more grit and determination than mere glue. So a little creative decorating was in order.
We needed something to totally cover the loose bits so he had nothing to grab onto. I had a stroke of genius - a hallway table with a heavy statue over the oopsy. The finished product wasn't quite what I'd originally thought of but I love it. The hole is covered by the bottom suitcase which has a heavy weight in it to stop Toby's access.
I love creative and strategic decorating. And I really love how our hallway has gone from bland to interesting. So I probably should thank this little guy for being so destructive - and I might after I've calmed down.
Seriously, who'd have thought that this gorgeous little creature could have made such a mess.
Has anyone else had to deal with destructive pets?
