    The wife just called me...

    Found my bass on the floor and all the cables to the pedal, mixer and amp are chewed up.

    Really feeling a bit sick at the moment.

    I really really really don't want to go home.

    This is the cause of my pain.

    Some guy with a beard came into your house and chewed up your cables? Why didn't your dog chase him off?

    Sorry man. Hope the damage is minor.

    Man happened to me once and it really sucks I'm a dog lover but I couldn't believe my pal did me like that. I would have the wife put the dog up so your brain can digest it all and you can decompress here is my problem child!!!!

    Sounds like he was jealous.


    Or maybe you should lock your bass in a cage when you leave.

    It sucks I wasn't as mad when one of the kids did something but my dog,my buddy,my pal stabbed me in the back that hurt I can still remember the look in her eyes " I'm sorry I couldn't help it I'm a dog we screw up from time to time" but it's like you have this one thing in the house that's "yours" man I feel for you if you need some cables I have a nice Mogami bass cable and a couple of patch cords you can have for free.

    By the time you get home the dog will have forgotten what it did so there is not even a lesson or punishment that can be administered properly.

    True bummer about your cables. I hope the bass is all right.

    I have a giant dog too (she's long grown out of the chewing stage tho), but this is reason #139 why I keep basses in cases and stored behind closet doors when not in use.

    Maybe your wife didn't want you buying more gear as she thought you already had plenty so your buddy decided to help you out :D ?

    She is trying to do an inventory for me right now.
    Hopefully I not going to be out a lot money replacing cables.

    Since its a carpeted floor - I am assuming the bass is alright.

    When it was in another room I had to make time every day to play. When it sits next to me its easy to make time.

    Oh well, it is what it is. If that is what I have to do, then its what I have to do.

    That's a great attitude to have.
    Getting mad and hating on the dog doesn't get you anywhere.

    My German Shepherd would never dare do such a thing, but then he's a Knight Of The Realm - "Sir Zachary".

    It's a bummer, but what can you do?

    Only thing my cat ever did to my cab was cover it in fur, because I didnt put a cover on it.
