    I don't see humor in it either. Why was the thread where the dog could get it? I have a Great Dane that could take anything she wanted off a counter if she so desired, but she has been trained to be a "lady" and respect my belongings. I always worry about dogs and pins and all the dangers in a sewing room, not pet friendly, that's for sure.

    You know, my dog does the same thing. She loves the plastic. I have to watch vigilantly so nothing falls on the floor. Darling Dog!

    That is exactly why I don't let pets in the house.

    We always had "outside" dogs when our kids were young, but as a senior citizen, I like my dog in the house to protect me from strangers at the door, etc, plus just plain companionship. But dogs, like children, need rules. They can't be allowed to be the "boss" of the house. The human has to always be the alpha dog, no matter the size of the dog. My Dane knows I am her boss. She recently learned that she could go down the stairs to the basement with me, so loves to sleep on her bed while I am sewing. I watch carefully for pins on the floor. She occasionally will put her head in my lap looking for a little love while I am sewing, but now knows that when I say "Excuse me" it is time for her to go lay down. It doesn't matter how cute they are, they need rules, and really shouldn't be in the sewing room at all, for their own safety.

    Wow some of you are kind of judgemental there. nobody is perfect no matter how diligent we are or how well trained Sometimes $#|+ (stuff) happens.

    His face reminds me of my aussie when I found him surrounded in fluff and his noes stuck in my now quite bare ugh boot when he was a pup. He had managed to pull all the inside fluff out of my boot without damaging the outside at all. Wanted to kill him but I just had to laugh. it's called having a sense of humor, it makes life so much less stressfull.

    Feffertim, I have to admit that I'm not perfect either. I have cats in my house because they give me a lot of love. Yes, I have cat hair. So what. I could have a spotless house, but it would be lonely. I also try to keep things away from my cats but they do get adventurous. Their favorite activity is to find any batting that isn't locked away. They are great at shredding it, I guess for any future stuffed animals I might make?

    Your puppy looks like an active, curious companion who adds quality to your life. He has mastered that 'who, me'? look that dogs do so well. Thanks for sharing your pictures. Many of us probably went to check our sewing space to see what we need to put back out of harm's way. Your posting probably prevented another furrie baby from getting in trouble today!

    I can't blame your little friend. The thread looks just like the pattern in his dog bowl ;-)

    Oh my, but I'm afraid he doesn't look very ashamed at what he did. Guess the thread had a nice texture to it. Some of it might be saved, but the pink looks like a goner. It wasn't Aurifil thread, but I accidentally got a smaller spool of thread unraveled to such an extent that I just kept cutting until I could use the spool, it's worth a try, and I couldn't even blame it on my cat.

    My little guy will find the end of a thread on the edge of a piece of fabric and just keep chewing and pulling on it until he gets a whole ball of it in his mouth. This can be dangerous for the fur baby so I don't leave fabric down on the floor anymore, it is in baskets, but he will get into anything he can. I like Tartan's suggestion, worth a try.

    Cam's Gram..............one of our dogs ate my father's false teeth and wallet with money it in. Of course the dog was my father's dog so he didn't get punished for it back then..................It was still funny though. Think that dog ate Dad's watch too..............teehee, teehee.

    Actually it was probably my fault. I don't let my animals in my sewing room, but I had been hand sewing hexes in my recliner while watching TV, and left the thread on my side table. Never occurred to me he would be interested in it.

    I hope he didn't swallow anything. I have to admit he looks satisfied with himself. I guess he will be banished from the sewing room now.

    My thoughts exactly! My dog gets into my yarns, but not my threads.
