Why you shouldn't leave your dog at home alone

Yogi the mutt found a way of entertaining himself...

A barmaid has returned home from work to find her house covered in feathers and a very guilty looking dog.

Sophie Robinson encountered the extraordinary sight of pet Yogi when she returned home after a busy shift last week.


Sophie, 23, couldn't believe her eyes when she walked through the front door of her Stockport home on Friday.

She found her hallway, living room and the staircase coated in feathers... all thanks to mischievous pet dog Yogi, the Manchester Evening News reports.

While out at work, the one-year-old rottweiler and akita cross had savaged one of the living room cushions and - five days later - Sophie and her family are still vacuuming up the house in Romiley.



Sophie, 23, who posted a video of the messy aftermath on social media, told the M.E.N how Yogi has a habit of 'getting things'.

"I knew something was wrong as soon as I walked up the drive – he's normally there in the window waiting for me, then he runs to the front door when he sees me.


"But not on Friday. I walked in the house and that is actually what I walked in to.

"Yogi was just sat on the chair looking at me like 'I know, I know, I did it I'm sorry!'"

Sophie, who lives with her mum, said the cushion Yogi destroyed was a huge feather one.



"I'd changed the cover on it to wash it and put it on the landing, I needed to get to work so I just picked it up and threw it in my room, I thought I'd shut the door, but obviously I didn't do it properly!

"Yogi has gone in and got it, and well, you can see what happened!

"It's not the first time, usually it's just a bit of paper or some cardboard, although last week he managed to get one of my childhood teddies.





"The poor bear had survived 20 years, with four cats, two dogs. It's now sat in a bag waiting to be taken to a toy maker to be repaired!"

Sophie estimates there were around 10,000 feathers covering her house and says it took two hours just to pick up the main heaps by hand.

"We didn't want to block the Hoover," she added.

"I picked up most of them and then we vacuumed up the rest, we are still finding them now."
