OMG...I had friends who had a dog that used to redecorate for them when he was left alone. He ripped down curtains, tore off wallpaper, ate furniture etc etc etc.
They tried leaving him in the bathroom once.... he almost went through the door after ripping apart the vanity....funny thing was....it was one of those little shitzu dogs and weighed about 5 pounds soaking wet!
He would destroy the house every time .....but he was their baby....
Baby's name was.... Sparky.
