A couple days ago, my cousin was over and we were chatting it up per usual. Chloe was occupied with her toys and treats, but I checked on her often so that I knew exactly where she was at all times. If I didn’t hear her or see her from where I was sitting, I made sure to get up and look for her. After about 4 hours (we had a lot of catching up to do, obviously), Chloe dropped her beloved Kong and stood up against my legs, basically asking to be picked up. I pet her but ignored her otherwise and she walked away. I thought she would get her toys and continue to play but a couple seconds later, I saw and heard her frantically running circles on my leather couch in full speed. I knew right away that she was upset so I went over there and was able to calm her down, only to find she had marked up 4 out of the 5 seats. My cousin was so positive: “It gives the couch character…?” Yeah well, it seems Chloe has enough for the both of ’em. Lesson learned: give your pup the attention she needs, especially when it’s way past her bedtime and she’s known to be a big ol’ grump without her sleep.
Her “I’m lazy but give me attention” look
P.S. I was able to buff out the scratches with some olive oil *wipes sweat off forehead.
