All of our domestic pets are rescues/adoptions.
Here, have a smile on me. A quick story:
Nine was headed to the pound. He was a 6 month old Great Dane with a massive, uh, well, ...see if you can guess his issue. I don't want to ruin it yet. Anyhow, my son was playing Juniors in Michigan and the two of us were living in an extended stay america for the next two years. I never told my wife that I adopted Nine and needless to say she was a little surprised when she came up for a visit, but she was ok with it. Nine would give us some companionship while we were away from home.
Our jeep was on its last leg so that Thursday she traded it off for a brand new xterra. On Friday she made the 6 hr trip for a visit and her first meeting with Nine. That evening she drove us to the game. I'd never left Nine alone yet so we took him to the game with us. Plan was to exercise him hard before the game. He'd stay in a large kennel in the back of the xterra and we'd walk him every 20 minutes between periods. It was December but not too cold. Anyhow, after the first period we headed out to the parking lot. We had to park about 2 football fields away so we had a long opportunity to see his carnage. As soon as we left the rink we could tell something wasn't quite right. He was sitting in the front seat surrounded by white. He had chewed his way out of the Kennel (I still don't know how he did that) and yep he'd ripped the covers from all the seats and devoured all the foam underneath. We could do nothing but laugh :
We drove back to the hotel on the seat pans. I spent the next day with a can of 3m super spray adhesive trying to fit all the tiny pieces of foam together. I placed a sweat shirt over each seat to cover the mass of foam that was supposed to be the front seats. We then went to Walmart and bought 2 cheap seat covers. They are still there 130,000 miles later and the seats still feel like you are sitting on the Rocky Mountains.
Nine turned out to be an awesome dog and we love him to death. It took him a couple of months to get over his sever separation anxiety and never chewed anything again. So there it is. He had sever separation anxiety and chewed.
Sorry for the thread robbery, but I hope you got a smile!
