We were just getting supper ready when we heard the sound of Spike running back and forth in the hallway. As we looked around the corner we saw him quickly turn away from us and head off to the foot of the stairs to chew on whatever he had in his mouth. Closer inspection showed that he had taken off with a thin decorative strip of leather that was originally attached to the new blouse I just bought. I had taken it off because I didn't really like it and I had placed it on the dresser. Apparently Spike liked it better than I did and he decided it was his new toy for the evening.
