aww i can definitely feel your pain. i have a 15 month old english mastiff (he's a BIG boy!) and lately my boyfriend and i have been extra busy and he has just been a terror. i feel bad because i get mad and upset when he destroys things, when i know he is just bored cause we're at work/school. a couple weeks ago he crapped on 2 textbooks ($200) that i had to clean off and continue to use because like i'm going to shell out the money for new ones... and today i was gone for an hour, and i don't know what got into him but i came home to a half eaten chuck taylor (a pink one, my favorite!), destroyed sunglasses, and the plug chewed off of my phone charger. i was so upset but i knew why he did it and i that i shouldn't have left them out in the open, and his face is sooooo adorable. so i forgave him. but ::sigh:: he's expensive. luckily though he has never touched my knitting. ::knocks on wood::
i would crate my boy, but he is so big and we live in a small apartment, the crate would take up half a room. just not gonna happen at the moment. maybe when we get a bigger place.
here's my boy, Sir Mack. oh and the other one is the boyfriend.
EDIT: forgot he was already on my avatar, but oh well. he's cute.
