Afraid to go home.....

My DH just called and said that Doc ate a hole in our leather couch. He, of course, then pulled the stuffing out of the cushion. He is 11 months old and has never done this before. He did eat a hole in the carpet, so he isn't an angel.

I know it's our fault for not having him in his expen while we are gone, but he's been really good. I guess he's lost that priveledge, but I'm not sure if my DH is ever going to speak to me again. They are MY dogs, as he says. How in the world do I fix my couch?
We have a leak in our roof and need it repaired/replaced, and DH is in the process of redoing our garage. He's pretty short tempered and really tired from working then working at home, too. I could shoot Doc right now......

Of course, I know, Doc won't have a clue he did something bad, so it won't do any good to say anything to him when I get home. It's my DH I'm afraid of......

Doc

Ohhhh I would be a little afraid too! Poor Doc,, the sad part is just what you said, he wont understand that he did anything wrong, and of course it is way after the fact. I guess it's time to go furniture shopping - thats the bright side!

Oh no, Judy. Bad, bad Doc.

Yesterday we discovered that Rumor, when she gets excited that someone is coming home, jumps on the chairs by our bay window and nips the chairs. Both chairs have holes in them. DH was furious even though he doesn't like the chairs. Thankfully they weren't expensive and we'll replace them but still, it's maddening!! We already cover our family room couch and chairs with throws unless we have guests so I guess we'll have to do that for living room furniture too. Not exactly the decorative look we're going for.
I feel your pain.

Oh Judy I am sorry! Perhaps you let DH pick out a new leather recliner!!! Some of them don't even look like recliners now. Or could Doc have possibly just chewed the cushion? maybe you could just have that re-covered.

But don't be afraid to go home...as you said Doc is a puppy and DH just has to understand that. Be firm with DH and back to diligence with Doc. We have two sets of new french doors...one was knawed by Jasper the other by Cash ---right at puppy height. Now we don't even notice it. Although I do wish my DH would sand and paint it.

good luck-- be sure to post later so we know how it went.

Yikes. Yesterday was the first time ever that I have let Cicero have the run of the house while I went to show a house. I was gone for an hour and a half -- and nothing wrong anywhere. I was so proud. Now....it's back to the crate since I am thinking he "might" chew up somethings. Doc's face reminds me of Cicero...they look so sweet!!

I know you feel sick. Sick that it happen and sick about seeing your couch. Hopefully, it will be in an area that can be repaired.

I would be afraid to go home too. Maybe you could stop and pick up DH's favorite dinner first!

OK, I'm home...DH went back to work at the bank, so I'm safe for awhile. It's a big hole right in the center of the cushion. I can't buy a new couch....this one is fairly new.....$2000 or so if I remember right. It's actually, or was, the nicest piece of furniture in our house. I'm going to take it to the furniture store tomorrow and see if the company can recover it.....oh my, oh my.....Doc and I go for our last session of obedience training tonight. I'm thinking he needs a LOT more. This REALLY makes me mad.

Judy, any chance you bought the leather protection they often push when they sell you a leather piece of furniture? I believe this would be covered if you did.

Can you flip it? I am so sorry. I know how you must feel.

Can't flip it.....hmmm, knowing me, I didn't pay anymore than I had to, so I doubt I bought any protection. We've had it probably 5 years...that's new to me!

I've got some big pork chops on the grill.....I will be gone with Doc by the time he comes home from work and when I get home, he'll probably be in bed....well, at least I hope he is! Dale, you are right...they look so sweet! I'd like to smack that sweet little face right now.....grrrrr...OK, I"m just kidding, I wouldn't smack him, so don't turn me in or anything, OK? I'm just really upset and hope and pray we can get it fixed.

Pork Chops are burning....that's not good......later.

Doc
