Dog Misses Owner, Chews Massive Hole In Front Door, Causes £1,500 Of Damage

A week doesn't seem to go by without some dog-related incident where the pet pooch has either left a little smelly surprise in one of their owner's shoes, or at the other extreme, almost destroyed an entire house.

But not matter what they do, we always end up forgiving them and telling them how good they are, even while trying to scrape their business from the newly painted walls.

Well, another mischievous pup has been at it.

The cockapoo, named Bobbie, was so desperate to follow its owner after she left that he chewed a massive three foot hole through the front door.

Now, at this point I'm not thinking 'what a little shit' but the poor little guy, he must have been so sad when she left.


Tara Jameson left her dog at her mother's home while she attended a wedding rehearsal, but when she got back home found that four-year-old Bobbie had caused some £1,500 of damage after he shredded the door.

He'd also destroyed parcel containing a TV box, waiting to be returned.

Good effort to be fair to him.

The 29-year-old took lots of pictures, showing the devastation little Bob had cause, while another taken after a new door and floor had been fitted, show him looking so innocent.

How could you stay mad at that face?

Ms Jameson, a postal worker, said: 'Bobbie went through a phase where he became quite destructive when he was left and I even got a dog therapist to try and help.

'I moved in with my mum and a few days before we sadly lost our old dog. He loved her so much and really missed her.


'But this was the worst he had ever done and it wasn't even my own house. At first I was shocked and angry but he was just so upset about being on his own I could understand why he had done it.'

And it seems Bobbie is absolutely besotted with Tara, as she says he even becomes jealous when her boyfriend comes round to the house. She says he sleeps on the end of her be, but when she wakes up, he's on her pillow.

She added: 'He has scratched his nails against the door so much they had gone into a point and he was soaking wet with sweat.

'I felt so sorry for him. He is not so bad now and only causes damage on the odd occasion.

'But he can get quite jealous and when me and my boyfriend head of the house he howls a lot.

'At the start of the night he will be asleep at the end of the bed but by the morning he is on my pillow.'
