Well the dog has another personality...he absolutely cannot tolerate the idea of you leaving the house without taking him. He has such bad anxiety that he has been known to rip open throw pillows, chew your Dyson vacuum cord, and eat your couch. Yes, you heard me right...He has so much anxiety that he will EAT YOUR COUCH!
My husband gathered all the pieces and left them in my craft room so we could decide what to do next...
A trip to Hobby Lobby, about $30 dollars, and 3 1/2 hours of sewing were all I needed. Oh, and patience. Much patience. As I fitted and sewed, I couldn't help but think how if we only had put the dog, Walden, in daycare that day he wouldn't have been able to do this to our beautiful couch.
So first, I tried to use Under Wonder to patch holes. Then I put the iron on the fabric, and it made a BIGGER hole. That's when I realized stitching was needed and ironing could only be used if thick fabric was placed above the existing & destroyed fabric of the original cushion.
I ended up only patching holes in one cushion.
The other three cushions, I re-did the entire backside. Making a stitch where the edge used to be so the cousin wouldn't be so round, but more square.
Thinking about this more, I am sure Sasha had something to do with this mess, but am POSITIVE Walden was the instigator. They both are so cute, I love them to death and have already forgiven Walden for his 'handiwork' from eating the couch this past Monday. I am a sucker for these two!
Do you have dogs with anxiety that leads to chewing and destruction? Any ideas for how I could work with my dogs on this behavior?
