Monday Mischief: Chewed Door Repair Video

10 Jul

When I am not home and there is a thunderstorm, Sofie tends to eat through the laundry room door. I have rebuilt the door 3X now. You would think I would just remember to leave it ajar when I go out so this doesn’t keep happening. But, No! I close the door because the cat litter is in there and I don’t want the dogs playing in it. That is why the laundry room door HAD a cat door; which is where I think this eating that particular door all started for Sofie. She first ate the cat door.

Anyway, I have gotten very expert at hollow core door repair, so I made you this video to share my fixing magic, including adding back a cat door. Hope it helps any of you that have to repair a similar chewed situation.

Turn on closed captions in video to read instructions. 

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

      She is a great helper until a storm comes. Then she disintegrates and so does my door.

    I suspect Phenny ( easyweimaraner , above) secretly wishes the door modification had happened in Phennylandia! I got a big kick out of Phenny’s post today, and this post on dogdaz continues reports on the “habitat modifications” by our furpals.

    I laughed when I saw that modified door! Then I was impressed how you took that lemon, squeezed it, and got a great DIY door repair video out of it! Bravo!

    I have two Persian kitty boys who try to match their doggy buddies in destruction of printed matter and furniture, so I am sympathetic!

      Thanks. With kitties my life is full of throws over furniture and duct tape where they have destroyed beyond repair. Oh what we do for these creatures.

    p.s. Those Amazon boxes are universally approved up by the whole household here – cat and human – for their universal suitability for play and storage. Now that I’ve seen their utility in a door repair, I’m further impressed that they are the best part of ordering from Amazon! LOL! No wonder Jeff Bezos is a multi-billionaire and you and I aren’t.

      My cousin is in the box business and they are very rich. Not me. But I am poor and happy.

    we use an extra tall baby/pet gate with a cat door built in…not sure why I’m suggesting this though, because 2 of the 6 dogs ‘squeeze’ through the cat door hole. So I still keep trying to find different ways to isolate the kitty litter box! I tried using rubber bands to make the doorway narrower yet still my one fat cat, Blueberry, to squeeze in. Somehow, it has to be better than door reconstruction?

      Dogs that are motivated to get there, will get there, no matter what we devise, I think.

    Awwww poor girlie! 🙁

    Ha ironically, the back ground music sounds like our home fire alarm and I started to watch the video and Storm became alert. Anything that even remotely sounds like our alarm and she freaks out. I turned down the volume but she still sat alert. So I didn’t get to watch the whole video but I’m sure it is a nice video! Lol! Have a great week. 😃

        Haha that’s what I thought. Unless there happened to be one of my neighbor’s fire alarm going off while watching your video that I couldn’t hear.

    Wow! You aren’t kidding when you say she eats through the door.

      No, not kidding. Not funny. But she doesn’t seem to loose teeth, so that’s a plus.

    Oh, no, S. That was very naughty chewing. I know you couldn’t help it because of the thunder and all. I love your little head looking through the cat door at the end of the video. Maybe your mom will remember to leave that door open for you… And hopefully, you won’t find something else to chew.

    Love and licks,

      Thanks for the nod. Mom tries to remember things but it doesn’t always work. I guess that is why we have metal front door, so I can’t eat my way outside.

    We see sweet Sophie snoopervised the door repair which by the way is some smart and money saving work. Sweet Sophie you are one super chewer. There are a lot of good uses for boxes and we will remember this one just in case. Hugs and nose kisses

      Thanks for the nose kisses, Mags. She is a super chewer but only on doors. She seems to never destroy toys.
