Okay, Okay!!!

I know when I have had a bad idea and will own up to it.  I thought maybe lots of dogs did damage to their homes and would like to brag about it, but only a few did and as usual Dennis the Vizsla is the hands-down winner.  He did about 400elevenseven million dollars worth of damage to his house and furniture (and they kept him, what love!) and no body else is much admitting to doing damage or monetary value.    Dogs write and say, sorry, I just don't do that kind of thing, or they do little things but not any more.  So we will cancel this little exercise and give Dennis the prize ( he must have a whole wall covered with them by now) as the Champeen Furniture Ruinator of All Time.  The prize will be on its way to you sometime later than now.  Here is a picture of Dennis contemplating what might be next on his agenda.  One thing though, Dennis has a blog that is more fun than anything, you can write imaginative comments and just have lots of laughs!  By the way, here is Dennis' winning entry:

For the small time furniture chewer, you must be an inspiration, Dennis.  You would be for me, Dennis, but, uh, I just don't do that kind of thing!

Next time I come up with an idea like this, somebody STOP ME, please!

Oh, Stella, I would have entered but I know my shenanigans cause you such pain. But I am but a Padawan compared to that Dennis.

He is a master! A guru! A true inspiration! A role model! An artiste!

Not that I'm thinking about apprenticing myself to him or anything. That might remind Mom about the time we destroyed the blogging machine...


Gus, Louie and Callie said...

What a great post. Mom doesn't feel so bad now...

Phew! That Dennis is something else!

The day my breeders handed me over to #1, they showed her the inside of their car, are rather what remained of the seats that had been chewed up by my mummy! She was a little concerned but I turned out to be a little angel who loves chomping on wooden sticks rather than furniture!


Aniemother said...

Hahaha... Well you might not have had too many contestants, Stella, but you sure have a deserving winner!

Big kisses,

Morgan in Pittsburgh said...

I thought it was a good idea. I don't think anybody would of beat Dennis anyhow, so he is without a doubt the deserving winner.
your pal, Morgan

The Thundering Herd said...

So sorry - we should have entered, but we thought so many people had already read about our, er, classic moment.


Though we certainly Dennis for his thoroughness.

Huffle Mawson said...

There was nothing wrong with your idea Stella. I think a lot of pups are just not admitting their sins!

KB said...

Dennis's human needs to write a book, like the "Marley and Me" author. In his acknowledgments, he says that the pay-off from the book has more than paid for every bit of damage that Marley did. That line cracked me up!

Deborah said...

Holy Cow! That's a lot of stuff!
I hope Dennis the Viszla has stopped!
Have a nice weekend!

The OP Pack said...

Who would want to compete with Dennis - he so deserves to win!!! it was a great idea, Stella. And we think the Thundering Herd would be a good second.

Woos, the OP Pack

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Stella,
Your idea was great!! Dennis is a well-deserving winner no doubt!! (My mom is somewhat 'glad' that the damages that Hershey and I did were considered 'minimanl' compared to what Dennis did!! Heehee)

Lorenza said...

Hi, Stella!
Of course Dennis is the best!
I knew it!
I am not a destroyer and that its not because I don't want to be... its not easy to do bad things when you have a pair of eyes on you 24/7!
Kisses and hugs

Mango said...

Dennis is one of a kind.


Martha and Bailey said...

You could only love Dennis! Besides sometimes humans have too much clutter - we are sure that Dennis has helped his humans towards minimalist living - so really they are lucky to have him!
love and kisses

Joe Stains said...

I bow in the presence of greatness. WOW! We <3 Dennis!

Dory and the Mama said...

I think it was a great contest...We would have never found out how much stuff Dennis "allegedly" destroyed and Mama would not be laughing so hard now with out it!!

Congrats Dennis!!

The Army of Four said...

Oh..... my........


Hamish Westie said...

Wow that Dennis is an impressive fellow! I guess just the thought of having to compete with the likes of him put some of us off entering the contest. But it was a great idea Stella, please don't be put off thinking up new ideas. And I love reading posts that make me look well-behaved in comparison!

River said...

I should have been checking your blog! I have a few things I've shredded in the past year and my mom has documented it. Beagles are famous for chewing--esp trash diving. Of course, nobody would have beaten Dennis!

love & wags,

Tee said...

Whoa! Now that's a real champion funiture ruinator! We've chewed on mom's furniture but never to such extent! :p Sometimes we thinks the Chief's got eyes at the back of her head ... we almost always get caught red paw-ded :-p
