You are not going to believe this. My dog got bored one evening when we were out and attacked the steering wheel. He bit off at least 40% of the cover while standing on the horn. Our name was mud in the camp ground but after we explained to everyone what happened they were very sympathetic]. The next day we were out for 20 minutes and he did it again. This time he removed all that he left the first time. I had unhooked the horn just in case. So.., 2 days later we are leaving the camp at noon so that morning I stuck some of the foam back on the wheel with tape and put one of those old fasion steering wheel cover that you lace on and was feeling pretty comfortable to drive the 3 hours home. Went outside to do all the prep to leave said goodbye to our neighbors went back in to close the slides and you guessed it, everything...tape,foam and new cover gone, just small pieces on the floor. I drove home holding a 3/8 steel circle with 4 metel spokes. I have learned my lesson, Tucker now spends his time in a cage when we are out. $300.00 later we have a new wheel and Tucker is eyeing it up for his next adventure.

Boy the signature line that says Terrorists is sure right. You would think he would have eaten something softer but maybe he was watching for you as he was eating. Yikes, dogs sure can show their frustration in destructive ways.

Give your dogs a tip: in SE Asia they eat dogs. The dog was trying to train you, but it sounds like you still have the upper hand.
