Angry not again

I went home from work for lunch today and my damn dog ate my new wiring harness off my boat trailer, yes the one I just replaced because he chewed it off last week. This time he did it reight though and pulled the wires all the way back to the marker lamps. What a good dog

I say wire it to a battery . Nothing major, just enough for a suprise when he does it the next time.

Some years ago, I went into the garage and tried to start my Ferrari..... (this was before I bought a bunch of Freightliners, leaving me in a position where I now drive Ford products).... The Fizzazz wouldn't start and I opened the bonnet......and discovered a (barn) rat had feasted on my wiring loom.

Those of you who know me......can imagine the next 24 hours...... much like a movie I once saw.... I dismembered the garage...... put traps inside traps...sat with a pellet gun...swung shovels...and let my three Rottweilers loose in the yard.

The cure was to overlay the bottom 4 feet of sheet rock in the garage with sheet metal and place rat poison on every rafter in the house...and spend a couple of grand on new wiring for the car.

.........and that's why, to this day,........... I can smell a rat at 50 yards.......and can't help but try and flush 'em out

T2x...........running on the anti-rodent ticket

T2x, you should be an exterminator.

We once had a dog that had a taste for brake lines. She chewed three rubber lines off the front of our old 550 Suzuki. I found about the first one the hard way.

T2x: That is a part of the reason I got the dog(rodents). I've found my old work boots filled to the top with dog food, must have been chipmunks storing up for winter. also intakes and engines filled with shreaded rags.and dog food Rat traps with apples and a good pellet gun with a scope, I concur is the best solution.

Spray some pepper gas on there. Makes the fish at the dock spicey as well.
