So a couple weeks ago my roommate decided to get a dog. Meet Lucy, a 4 year old shelter dog that's 50lb, and a shepard/beagle mix. She is the nicest dog that I've ever met. She's obedient, doesn't shit in the house, and just loves people. She has one flaw. The thing flips out when we have to leave her during the day. She has a thing against blinds. Every set in the house is destroyed. Check out my new $500 leather chair I bought a few weeks ago. It's been reduced to a used chew toy. After she destroyed the place, we had to crate her during the day. She would have nothing to do with that. She managed to break out of the cage every day we put her in there. We upped the ante every day fortefying the cage with zip ties and quick links, because she was able to literally bend out the bottom of the door and get out. This is what's left of my roomates bed comforter. She sucked it through the bars of the cage and tore it to shreds. The most recent episode, we had the cage rienforced with welds, zip ties, and quick links. That didn't stop her. She literally ripped bars off the cage and got out. The poor thing busted several teeth in the process and had to get a $300 surgury to fix them.
