bemz contest

will yeonwoo win the case for a new klippan slipcover?

yeonwoo and jonathan submit their case for a new mud coloured klippan slipcover.

“Please find attached photographic evidence of why a Bemz slipcover is desperately needed in this household:

1) The culprits: Attila the Greyhound and Haggis the Scottish Deerhound. The victim: Klippan 2-Seater.

2) Attila is a Sofa Connoisseur. Here he is tasting and nibbling his favorite.

3) Furniture porn? Nay! Rather, this is what happens when you leave a puppy alone for two minutes.

4) We bought an iRoomba Scooba recently to mop the mud (from dirty paws) off of the floor. Unfortunately, it does not work on sofas. i.e., why I need a mud-colored slipcover.

5) But you see, the dogs really love this couch. We bought a dog blanket from Costco as a futile attempt to cover the stains and rips, but the blanket always ends up on the floor and the Klippan is left naked and shivering in its embarrassment.

6) IKEA does not make any slipcovers that I like. Bemz does. Imagine how beautiful this scene would be with a Bemz slipcover…

PS. We also have two cats.”

    I love puppies! I wish I had one of my own, but I don’t think my cats would appreciate it. I’m not sure why Anonymous had to be unnecessarily ‘catty’ (har!). I sympathize with all pet owners in this contest (obviously, i’m one too). And as one who’s owned and loved cats and dogs and bunnies and birds, I can testify that dogs are less destructive to furniture than cats for the reason that they can be trained easier.

    Yeah, forget all of these people with pets. We should feel sorry for them because they choose to keep furniture-destroying animals in the house?

    Dear Anonymous (Perhaps Competitive Sabotage-r),
    Actually, the *Retired Racing* Greyhound is not destructive towards the couch, whereas the Scottish Deerhound is now no longer a puppy and respects the couch immensely as a soft place to sleep.

    Thank you.

  5. And if no other reason, because of there’s a greyhound involved!

    Is this person getting rid of the animals? If not, what’s the point of getting a new sofa cover? It will be torn up too before too long. I think it should go to someone who would take care of it.
