DOGGY FAILS AT Decor
DEXTER’S owners prefer it if he stays away from ‘decorating’.
ADESTRUCTIVE dog was caught redpawed after trashing his owner’s sofa – and making a cosy bed out of the stuffing strewn across the conservatory. Naughty pooch Dexter has caused £700 (about R13 000) worth of damage – forcing owners Melanie Eccleston, 30, and Will Sellers, 28, to take their sofa to the tip – after mauling it and ‘decorating’ the room with white stuffing. The lurcher-cross was left on his own for just two hours, and was peacefully sleeping in the stuffing when Melanie returned to the carnage. When woken, one-year-old Dexter was far from shamefaced – bounding over to mom-of-three Melanie ‘as if proud of what he’d done’. “He’s just crazy,” says Melanie. “I looked through the door and thought ‘what on earth is that?’ He was asleep on the mess. I banged on the window and made him jump. He looked at me with his ears poking up. I opened the door and he came bounding over like he’d not done anything wrong – the little monkey!”
