My mom’s dog is obsessed with lights and shadows. He will go after anything that looks different. She told me that the terrier mix once chewed a hole in the corner of the hallway because the light shone through the window and settled there. Well I didn’t realize how bad this light obsession really was until my mom came for a visit and brought her terrier dog. That dog ran all over the house, all excited, chasing lights and shadows that weren’t even moving. It was crazy. He wasn’t doing any damage though so we didn’t worry too much. But that night the dog did do some damage. It was very expensive too. He chewed up the smart thermostat in the hallway. I don’t know how the smart thermostat ended up on the ground. The little terrier mutt was way too small to have jumped up and gotten it off of the wall. Maybe it fell when he was running around or something. Whatever the case it got chewed up and ruined. I can’t say that I am surprised. The smart thermostat has lights after all. The more the dog touched the smart thermostat the more the lights would change. After all, it works by touch. The dog also changed the temperature in the house while chewing on the thermostat. So now it is freezing cold in here and we can’t change it back. Good thing the HVAC technicians are coming out soon to replace the smart thermostat. I think I will keep this one in my room until my guests leave. I don’t want it destroyed again.
