We have a 9 year old, perfectly behaved dog, and a 1 year old puppy with issues he'll hopefully outgrow eventually. We went on vacation, and I wanted to board the puppy, but DH insisted he'd be fine, so we left both dogs in the house (why did I listen to him?). A friend came every day to feed/water/play with them. (We have a doggie door so they can go in/out).
Anyway, over the 10 days we were gone, puppy was showing more and more signs of getting anxious. Dogsitter started finding things shredded/chewed in the house. A couple of days before we came home, the dog shredded our couch. Beyond repair.
We bought a new on this weekend (the set was on its last legs, but we were waiting to replace it). We did OK on money, but I really wish we didnt have to spend the money right now. DH and I have been furloughed (10%) for the year, starting with our next paycheck, so I am totally stressed about money without any extra expenses.
BTW I probably would have gone used for a solid wood piece, like a dresser. But used upholstery gives me the heebie-jeebies (my own personal thing, I know)
