I don't know what I did to upset the dog, but clearly he was not happy with me. Maybe I had gone out and left him home alone - but why attack my Chinese sandals? These cheapies are common in China, and I used to use them in the bathroom - when I had a shower. You have to understand a Chinese bathroom. Still, I brought them home to Oz and they have been handy. I am not a thong person, even for my feet! I used to use these outside when I was watering the garden or trying to keep my feet clean and dry. But Marti has fixed that. No more will I be able to wear them.
