that poor balenciaga!! haha i can't imagine one of my pets doing that i think i would cry.. once one of my cats tried to chew on the handle of my multicolor speedy and i nearly had a heartattack.. but i stopped him before he got it!
There is a pic of the poodle on the auction, too...probably before she caught him! My Bichon (when he was a puppy) chewed my Shakespeare First Folio...fortunately he only got through the dust cover! Not quite as much as a Balenciaga, but a lot harder to get hold of! I wonder if Balenciaga could repair the handle?
