Last week I finished all the washing, and felt satisfied that everything was clean. I even washed some of the covers on the chairs in the den. We put covers on our old furniture to keep them from getting any more wear. It works. The red, couch has a hole in it, which was made by our dog when he was a puppy. He dug a hole in it. At the time, the couch was new, and I was disheartened that our dog could do this while we were gone. Since then, we put something on the couch when we are gone . It encourages the dog to lie in his own bed. He doesn’t have a chance to chew more on the couch.
I find blankets, and quilts to put on the chairs in the den. Again the furniture is old, but with a cover, we don’t see the old. There is one more hole…in one of our chairs. A dog that is dead now dug a hole in the couch. I guess in both instances, we didn’t think this would happen. So I cover the chair with blankets, and a quilts. It makes the den homey. It saves the rest of the couch, since it has a hole in it. It seems a shame to waste a couch to a dog. We put something on the couch when we leave the den, and this way our dog has no way of doing further damage.
