Some folks have wondered what the dog and cat (and
occasionally lizard and rat and seagull and chicken) rooms at PETA headquarters
look like. Well, they don’t usually look like this …

“Who? Me?”

… but this one did just a few hours after the little dog
seen here, Precious—a dachshund mix—arrived for a pajama party. Everything
seemed quiet after she had been taken for a long, long walk, but by 5:30 a.m.,
the couch was down to the wooden frame. Who’d have guessed that such a little
dog could wreak so much havoc?

Dogs often tear things up when they feel bored, frustrated,
or anxious. If your home contains a canine demolition crew, make sure their
need for stimulation and attention is being met. Provide plenty of playtime,
tummy rubs, and walks (a reputable dog walker can help when you can’t get home
yourself), and please don’t crate
all, they’re dogs, not cargo.

Sometimes, though, you have to cut your losses—literally: The
sofa had to be chopped in half with a chain saw and thrown out. While Precious
was being spayed in one of
PETA’s mobile clinics, staffers
were at the Hope House
thrift shop
picking up a comfy new (or, rather, gently used) couch. And, hey, at least she
had fun!

shredded sofa or two? Join
