    Default Uh oh; it happened again!

    Just came home to the worst disater a fly tyer may ever endure... again.

    Lucky, my 14 year old lab, got into my fly tying room/den and ate some necks, then ate a bunch of bucktails, then the partridge cape and a few scraps remain of some nice pieces of elk hock.

    A bunch of synthetic stuff got roughed up pretty bad too... that was probably "entertainment".

    Tomorrow he will take a very colorful [dump]. The bucktails were blue, pink, red, yellow, the necks were white, dun and ginger. His breath smells of moth balls.... so I venture he ate a few.

    We have lever style locksets and he can open them; already removed the knobs from pantry and closet where we put the waste basket.

    I suppose this is good news for LRO as I will need to replace this stuff.

    Does this sorta thing happen only to me?

    If I didn't love him so much I would shoot him and sell hi[m]for dubbing!

    Our cat got into some feathers that I had laid out on my desk one time. Our dogs know better. I'm pretty careful about cleaning up my tying desk after each use since I have a 13 month old crawling around, pulling up on furniture, and letting the grabby hands run wild.

    Join the club- Both mydaughter brought home a couple of batches of cute kittens from college. Went back to school and left them with us. After some major issues they became OUTSIDE cats until their demise. Luckily hackle was a lot cheaper back them.

    Default It's not just you

    My dog has gotten ahold of a whole Hungarian Partridge skin as well as a full rooster neck (at the time graded silver) Whitings Farms. He was pushing feathers for a week. Lesson learned
