Charlie says "NO!" to sweatshops!

By day, he chills. By night, he's a dog with principles.

He's quite a strong minded sort of hound really. I don't see it as mindless vandalism. First he riled against Clinton cards, now he's taking on child labour in India. It's a natural progression. At least, by chewing up my sister's Primark specials, I think that's what he's getting at.

Either that or he's just not feeling the closed toe shoes for this summer.

Lovely DIY peep-toe work there!
My brother's dog ate my favourite £10 beige stilettoes, the ones I spent months breaking in through blood and blisters, to make them so comfy I could run for a bus in them. And people wonder why I prefer cats!

You tell those slave-labor asshats what's what. Just don't touch my shoes

Finally someone is standing up against Primark Specials.

I commend you, vandal.

I think your dog has a brother. I went round to walk the neighbour's dog yesterday and he had almost chewed through their kitchen door. I'm not sure there was more sentiment involved than "I am bored and lonely", though.

Charlie's got the right idea! (although the shoes look nice). Funnily enough, I also have a dog called Charlie. When she was a puppy, my sister encouraged her to chew my flip flops. They cultivated a Stealth-Chewing Operation, whereby Charlie chewed through the toe-separating section of the flip flop. That way, the flip flop owner was completely unsuspecting of the vandalism until they tried to wear their flip flop and their foot would slide right through the shoe. Very annoying!

laser - there is a rule in my house, don't leave your shoes downstairs unless you want them de-heeled.

china - even worse when it's taken an age to wear them in...on the up side, at least at a tenner (or 8.50 in my sis's case), you can afford to replace.

ask alice - YEAAAAHHHHHHHHHH! I'm sure there's some sort of campaigning that doesn't involve eating shoes but still..try telling that to a labrador.

arbyn - five head pats for the dawg

homer - yeah bored and lonely will do it too...

urbanvox- i feel your pain. And no, you may NOT return. Jokes.

blueskies - hurrah for charlies! boooo to your sister. She's lucky they were only flip flops!

they were very nice flip flops :(

Kasey wonders if Charlie wants to come and get into some innocent shenanigans with her. She thoroughly approves of the shoe eating.

Charlie knows that peep toes are so in this season :)
