Well now! My girls have chewed, destroyed, played tug of war; you name it, they have done it with the furniture. I love them and just had to except we have no furniture in our livingroom except a metal framed outside loveseat and three recliners plus they have their crates in the event we need to crate them when they are unsupervised. It seems when they run in pairs I have twice as much destruction so I got rid of the other furniture and have folding chairs for company . Seriously, I have learned furniture is a bit overrated so why put myself through buying new stuff for the destruction queens to "fit" it to their likings. We got this....our needs are simple these days: mops, dust mops, wooden floors and tile, three recliners, small outdoor furniture with cushions up just in case we want to use them for company, china closets have all the good stuff locked down inside them because we have cats that break things, my house is almost pet proof at this point. Who needs a shower curtain? They just become sails for Amber to rip off and go flying down the hallway, child gates keep her from stealing the blankets off the bed......hehe......4 years living with a bully and I got this now...(well, at least until they figure out something new and exciting.) Yeap, traded the curtains for wooden blinds and electric roll down window covers because Amber ate holes through the curtains to see outside. My point, love your bully endlessly. Forget about the furniture and figure out how to make it work (mine havent destroyed the metal framed furniture yet). Hehe, when it was Christmas we were looking at Amber and Ruby sleeping and I think their Night Before Christmas poem went something like this:
The Grinch That Stole My bed
It was the night before Christmas, And all through the house, Not a bed available; not even the couch. The cushions were hung, on a hook in the wall, because Amber and Ruby, used them like footballs.Their stockings were hung, in the doorway with care, In hopes that St. Nick would put a bed there.
Gook Luck on the battle of the couch, or bed, or anything else!!
