This is when a sassy Dalmatian looked puppy dog eyes to his owner after discovering he’d vandalized her £2,000 living room sofa.
Footage shared online shows six-month-old Percy nervously greeting his owner Bethany-Jayne Livesey as she arrives at her home in Lancashire.
She soon discovers a hole in the leather sofa and padding on the seats and floor.
With suppressed laughter, the customer service manager asks the guilty-looking pup, “Who did this?”

“No one will be sitting on this bench anytime soon,” she adds.
Percy – who had previously ruined three pillows and a rug – stays by the door and gives his owner “the cute eyes” before sheepishly walking back to his pen.
But Lancashire owner Bethany said she couldn’t stay mad at him.
She said, “Percy clearly has a thing for interior design.
“Since dedicating the living room to his special space, we’ve lost a rug, three pillows, and now the couch.
“I left him for about two hours to get to work and I came back to all this carnage in the living room.
“He had somehow managed to get his nose past the back of the sofa and pull out all the stuffing.
“He likes the sofa, so maybe he didn’t find it comfortable enough or didn’t have the right amount of padding to his liking.
“We’re currently renovating our house, so its destruction isn’t that big of a deal.
“When I found out what he had done with the bank, I had to laugh.

Percy was happy with his chaotic creation, while owner Bethany had to clean up the mess – until the next morning the mischievous doggy had done the same thing again
“I couldn’t stay mad at him for his cute face.
“Of course I’m not happy my couch is broken, but that’s part of having a puppy, I guess.”
After making a video to show her family and friends online, Bethany was inundated with comments saying it didn’t take long for the dalmatian pup to conform to his breed’s mischievous tendencies.
Percy’s damage totals £2,096 – having previously ruined three £12 pillows and a £60 rug.
Bethany added: “My whole family was confused by the video and said it wasn’t long before it caused some mischief.
‘I even sent it to his breeder and joked that I’m sending her a bill from the bank!

“Before we got him everyone said we would regret having a Dalmatian because they are crazy and this certainly proved it.
“You can see in the video that he can’t hide his excitement because his tail is wagging so much. It was hilarious – I had to hold back my laugh so he wouldn’t notice.
“He also pulls off his cute eyes and pretends to be innocent, which is funny.”
Bethany cleaned up the mess twice after the naughty doggy did the same the next morning.
She added: “We patched up the sofa and the next morning we found that it had managed to get even more padding out.
“Hopefully this is the worst and he won’t get into too much mischief in the future when the house is newly decorated.
“He’s the quirkiest, funniest dog with so many strange habits and he certainly lived up to the cheeky Dalmatian name.”
