Please Login to Remove!

Well, yea, this is ridiculous, but my puppy literally ate my Fortte case.

UPS man delivered it while I was at work and when I got home, the box and leather were in 50 pcs.

I just ordered another one...wish me luck keeping it away from he dog!

I am tempted to give some my junkers to my dogs but I fear they will go after the real one.

Ha ha. I had the same experience - but with my Treo. My treo wall & car charger were chewed up by my best friends laborador. It was in a gazillion peices on the floor.

I actually was telling the other forums I was part of (when I had my treo) the story and got scolded for posting a thread about something so worthless to them. Yes, still bitter about it over here! So when I saw this thread I was like! Ha ha! I will support the rants & ventations (is that a word?) of my fellow BB'ers!

Okay, way too much coffee.

I remember when austin was a pup. He had expensive taste. He would chew on the cell phone, remote controls, sunglasses, etc.. but NEVER an old shoe of something of little value.

Post your blackberry puppie pics here. haha. I'll start.

This is Austin, my awesome German Shepherd/Anatolian Shepherd Cross. Just Turned 5 years old on April the 8th.

My 4 year old minpin does not chew on anything unless it is bacon flavored...she is my angel. My 4 month old minpin on the other hand...He is too small to chew on anything. I gave him a cornpop and it took him ten seconds to eat it when my older dog took 20 of them in 5 seconds. Ha.

Here is a picture. You have to look really hard and you will see Levi (the puppy) They are my prides and joys. They are actually both sleeping next to me, my older one is awkwardly sleeping in my lap and the puppy is on my shoulder against the seat back (he thinks he is a parrot)

I think it's completely Fortte's fault and they should send you another one.

Yes, using ESPN, Fortte caused the dog to eat the case.

Everyone here is starting to relate past experiences, I am seeing a pattern of case loss...

I think we should have a moment of silence...

This is for you and your case ttowles...

Are you having a hard time with them since the new 'vicious dog' legistlation came in? I have talked to people with bull terriers and the like who have been harassed and are stared at everywhere they go.

I personally love the animals- Never met one who didn't want to lick me to death.

Background: Ontario very recently (came into effect six months ago) passed a stupid 'vcious dog' law fully banning only bull terriers, staff terriers, pitt bulls, etc, etc, etc. Existing animals are grandfathered but they must always remain on a short leash, always be muzzled, be specially licenced, etc. Any of these dogs which get loose, caught off leash in a park, etc or at large are subject to arbitrary destruction by the province. It has resulted in generally inaccurate public depiction of these dogs and was considered a generally overreaction by the province by many.
