I think your wife chewed it up and blamed it on the poor dog.

^^ Funny thing about dogs - - they're "OUR dogs" until they do something like that.

My dog is not allowed in my bedroom, near my motorcycle, or near my bicycle. Period. Don't care that both my bikes are kind of POS's, just my rules. Whoever let a dog near my bedroom or bikes is directly responsible for the damage done.

Granted, I'm not married. So these rules are set & actually have value. I imagine things would be different if I was married..

Next time rub the saddles down with some kind of citrus.

It absolutely sucks when a favorite saddle gets ruined.

Beat dog with said saddle(Not too hard). Or at least make it finish the meal. One way or the other should get the point across.

My dog chewed up my couch, prescription eye glasses, several hats, numerous interupted meals and she once got her snout into my beer glass. But I think she knows the bike stuff is totally off limits. I have helmets, gloves, grips, all sorts of things laying within her reach but she has never gone after them. I like to think I trained her well.

If it's the dog I'm thinking of, you wouldn't get enough hide nor meat to make it worthwhile.

Cat's ftw That sucks about your saddle though, I'd be distraught if something happened to mine. Hope you find it again. It is funny how things go from "ours" to "your".

Anyways.. sorry to hear what happened to the OP.. at least it will justify getting a new saddle and the wife will give you the green light

Your wife just posted on FB that she smeared hamburger juice on your saddle and showed it to the dog! just kidding....

"OUR" schnauzzer chewed up a new pair of Maui Jims once. I wanted to tie the dog to a cactus in the desert for the coyotes.

My old man had some chickens and he had a dog to "guard" them. One day he came home to find the dog had killed the chickens. He put a gun to the dogs head....and...BANG! It was dead.

Or so my mom told me.

My dog i had with my ex ate my brand new 150$ motorcycle boots. I was pretty pissed. I scared her a little with the chewed boot to show her she did something wrong.

But I never beat my dog. I would never beat my dog, beating your dog is a dick thing to do. Grow some balls and learn how to train your dog instead of taking out your ineptitude as a dog owner on a defenseless animal.

Gonzozo, 100% agree. Your dog should respect you, not fear you.

I might take my dog and beat someone with it.

You new-age pansies & your fear of physical discipline...

There's a difference between 'beating' a dog & physically disciplining it. If my dog does something wrong, you can bet your ass I'm going to smack him. Not hard enough to wound him, but hard enough that he knows he's done something wrong. In the wild, dogs bite each other to let one another know when they're doing something wrong. Since biting a dog is difficult & disgusting, we replace it with a different (but equally painful) kind of 'abuse'.

And my dog has only chewed up one pair of old converse of mine when he was a puppy, & nothing else. He knows my scent & he knows not to chew anything that reeks of it. Yet he still greats me at the door every day. Doesn't sound like fear to me..

Us new age pansies? I drive a Jeep, I carry a gun(legally in a free state) and I kill **** and eat it on a regular basis. I gotta motorcycle and few boomsticks and I'm intimately familiar with both.

Beating the hell out of something to me is "I saw him beating his dog so I bounced his head off the side of his car and kicked him until my feet got sore".

I am intimately familiar with pack mentality, dominance, posturing and the like. "Beating the hell out of" something does not equate with moderate negative stimulus in my book. Sorry for my confusion.
