      The third thing was the TORN lino in the kitchen , new puppy found it great fun to tear strips of lino off the floor  .. first you scrabble like crazy with your claws to start a tear , and then you use teeth to tear off a lovely strip of lino to chew . We are still too scared to replace the lino as the next puppy will probably do the same .
