I just found my Chanel specs in pieces sad It's a long story but it is of course my fault and I'm not angry with her, but I have had a little cry over my nice specs that I can't afford to replace at the moment and weren't insured.

So, does anyone else care to share their tales of woe? smile

Three pairs of L. K Bennett shoes. About £120 each. Shithead.

A pair of girl's trainers, less than 24 hours old worth £36

Chewed through my laptop power cable - last Xmas day - fused the power supply - it is of a type "no longer being made" so I had to buy a new laptop - £475!!!!!! little shit is one of his "cleaner" nicknames....

My dog isn't too destructive and I don't have leave expensive things lying around but he has a strange pechant for chewing the zips and buttons off my clothes - rendering a few ruined so it accumulates. Thank goodness jeans have metal rivetted buttons, they're dented but still operable.

He pulls down and tosses clothes around when we're out, fortunately none of my cashmere woolies have zips or buttons so they are undamaged.

Its only my clothes which receive this attention!

My favourite black ankle boots. They were high but really comfortable to wear and walk in.

I'm much more careful now!

Dd1's brand new shoes £30. She'd only wore them once. Followed by dd1's netbook charger £25 and dd1's NDS charger £12 and several of dd1's packed lunch bags 4 x £8. Are we seeing a pattern here?

There are four people in this house, either puppy is systematically destroying all of dd1's things because he hates her (her theory) or she is the only person in the house who has yet to learn she needs to put her things away or they will be eaten.

Not me, but my dad's friend's dog. Front wing of a (stationary) car - he was a Doberman with a hell of a turn of speed but not much steering grin

Gucci sunglasses. £300.
I own nothing designer, I have never bought a designer handbag, I wear no jewellery, but I do wear sunglasses so after a year when I worked exceptionally hard I treated myself to them and kept them for best.
They are the only thing the b****rd dog has ever destroyed, and he didn't just chew them he obliterated them. I think it was the leather case that got his attention, and he came joyfully running up the door to greet me with a little 'G' hanging out of his mouth.

I have still not forgiven him.

Three kitchen chairs, about £30 each when we bought them.
A DVD from lovefilm, which cost £10 to replace.

Dooin - my dog only destroys my things - its not that I leave more clothes where he can get at them than DH and DD (on the contrary) - it seems to be a strange sign of his devotion to me!

An entire solid wood floor.

Mum was gone an hour.

A brand new £600 dining chair. Chewed through the whole bottom rung.

ImperialStateKnickers Wed 28-Nov-12 15:26:48

My mum and dads dog ate the crutch out of all my brother's underpants when they were in the basket waiting to go round the wash. Left everyone else's alone. Ewwww...

littlewhitebag Wed 28-Nov-12 16:07:32

My dog ate a brand new dog bed within an hour of me buying it for her! She now sleeps on a manky old quilt which she shows no interest in chewing!

>An entire solid wood floor
What is he - Clifford the Big Red dog?

SpicyPear Wed 28-Nov-12 16:52:42

Thanks all! The wood floor one takes the biscuit. SpicyDog is not usually destructive so I'm not used to having to hide stuff away from her! Let's hope it doesn't get to that...

My mums last dog ate through several kitchen units during his lifetime and his partner in crime ate a flotex kitchen floor and destroyed the patio several times by digging up the grouting in between the slabs. The worst mine has done is eat 2 dog beds , so now he only has blankets ( with holes in ) and he also ate a pair of Egyptian cotton sheets that I left by the washing machine.

I can win this one!!!

A kitchen. Lovely dog set fire to it. I had put the kids lunch boxes on top of the hob, out of his reach. He managed to turn on the hob and set the lunch boxes on fire, which wrecked the kitchen. The hob was destroyed, and everything else was smoke damaged. The fire brigade were not sure whether to believe that the dog was responsible.

I don't leave the lunch boxes there anymore.

grin not Clifford the big red dog just a loopy old English sheep dog, it was the kitchen floor, to this day we don't know how she did it.

DSS passport.

My steering wheel of a courtesy car.

3 bloody sky remotes. £25 EACH!!! maybe got sick of sky sports news

MerryCunnyFuntingChristmas Wed 28-Nov-12 22:54:13

A thermos lunch bag, about £8, and an unchecked lottery ticket sad we could've been millionaires!

Over the years various dogs have eaten us out of a fortune!

The most memorable was the one with a taste for £20 notes. Not £10s or £5s only ever the £20s hmm.

(We have a cash business and used to bring the money home and count it on the coffee table, DDog would casually saunter past and take a mouthful!) What followed should probably be sculpted rather than described, the mad dash and great wrestling match must have been spectacular grin

Others have destroyed - a friend's passport, when they were literally at our house on the way to the airport. That cost us a lot.

Numerous designer shoes. A favourite chew toy of one of them would be dubarry boots, £200 - £300 a pop.

Furniture, toys, you name it every dog we have ever had has got it jaws around something it shouldn't have!

All the wooden handles and edges of our pine bedroom furniture - to replace the furniture will cost £100s
The strap off my new handbag (£80 odd)
One of my new brown winter boots (so had to buy a whole new pair at around £95)
The handles off four badminton rackets, ds's trainers, my gardening crocs, dd's horseriding crop, a posh wicker dog bed, several boxes of cereal, the list is endless....

Good job we love him grin
