Mia the Basenji a.k.a Interior decorator/destroyer

Well our little Mia has always liked to get into trouble but this one tops the cake. This afternoon we knew it was too quiet and she was most likely up to something. So go and look for her and sure enough she had done something pretty bad. The entrance to our house is tile which meets up to the carpet at a 45degree angle. Well I guess Mia didn't like the look of that so she riped up the carpet so it would be a perfect square! So needless to say we had to take the tile out and we'll need to replace it. After she did this I put her "I've been naughty so what" shirt on, which I guess sums her up 50% of the time lol…

LOL, I guess she didn't like the carpet there

She looks so innocent; how could a little baby like that be naughty. LOL! I like the shirt!

Pat

she does look innocent, especially when she's done something wrong and she looks at you with the "cat from Shrek" eyes lol…I think they made Basenjis extra cute so we wouldn't get mad when they do things like this! 😃

Are you sure she's the one who ripped up the carpet 🆒
She's too cute to have done something like that!

Hey guess what! Trixie did not like any of our carpet in 2 (yes I said 2) rooms. One being our bedroom and the dining room. She could have the carpet peeled back like a banana in about 2.3 seconds. We now have hard wood floors. She also did not like the wallpaper by her food and water bowls. That has now been replaced with just paint. I have got to get her one of those shirts!!! We think someone should hire her to help redecorate houses since she has done such a great job with ours!!

BWWWAAAHHHHHHH!!!! that is hysterical! The look on her face is priceless 😃 😃 "what? what happened??….you mean you don't LIKE it??" LOL!!!

lol I still have a plastic table lying over the newly placed tiles so she doesn't rip the carpet even more. I have to find those transition strips to place over the edge of the carpet asap lol.

Hahaha. I told Mark that the other day! I was saying that if he does something bad it's so hard to be angry for more than 5 seconds because he looks at you with those "puss-in-boots" eyes! :p The wrinkles on the forehead certainly bail them out of a lot of trouble I'm sure!

At least you did not tie a dead rat around her neck

Very funny!

lol now there's an idea hahaha

Doe eyes argh! They get me every time!

We have the most awful burber carpet in the apartment and Scarlett decided that whoever put it in needed to come back and fix it cause they left connection lines under the bedroom door and in the middle of the living room floor. She pilled it up and like burber tends to do it left awful messes and huge bare spots in those areas. Sounds like she and Mia should open up an interior design shop! 🙂

This is funny, but I wonder, do you think the b's smell something "wrong or off" with what they distroy?
Be it a dog who once lived there, something someone else pee'd on or just
something we tracking in on our shoes?
It sometime seems so random, what they decide to "take" or leave.
anyway, thought I would put this out there!

I'm convinced they smell/sense something from previous occupants - my previous beastie initially peed on all the spots the previous owner dogs messed (they were slightly discolored so you could tell) and the same thing happened at my brother's house - even though he twice scrubbed his carpets.
