If you thought your pooch was naughty, then spare a thought for Alannah and Lee; the pup-loving pair have just purchased a 6th sofa in the last 3 years because their "beloved" dogs won't stop tearing them to pieces.
By, 5 Aug 2019
The mischevious canine duo, a Staffy named Ziggy and a Rottweiler-Husky called Honey, developed a taste for upholstery back in 2016.
Two very naughty dogs!
Since then, the partners in crime have cost their owner thousands of pounds after chewing through a total of 5 brand-new sofas, including a duck feather sofa that left the living room "looking like a bomb had exploded."
Speaking to the Metro, Alannah said:
"The first sofa was replaced in early 2016 due to being so scuffed and having a rip in from their claws, the second sofa was the same, third sofa was the feather one and they clawed it to bits...this has been going on for five years now."
Alannah has tried to give the pups a good telling off, but there's just one small problem - these guys are super-cute, and they clearly understand the power of those puppy dog eyes.
"I can't tell them off because they're so adorable," said Alannah. "They know what they're doing, and they know it's naughty, but they never seem to learn."
The couple adopted Ziggy in 2013 and completed their little foursome in 2015 with Honey. Twelve months later, the pup destroyed their first sofa - looks like these furry best friends might be a bad influence on each other!
When you're this cute, you can get away with anything!
But there's no way Alana would ever consider splitting up the pair. After all, they're part of the family. She said:
"We wouldn't change them for anything, they're such funny dogs, so when all is said and done, it's not a big deal."
The couple will only be buying second hand-sofas from now on!
We wonder how long sofa number six is going to last?
