I'd recently got an 18mth old dog that was keen to chew everything when I was out of the house. When I came back one day, she'd started on my books on the bookcase and had chewed my favourite old bible that contained passages of Ecclesiasticus, difficult to find in many old bibles, and the wording of which in older English is very beautiful to me. Picking up the scattered and ripped pages and looking to see just how badly damaged Ecclesiasticus was, I was amazed to see they were the only pages almost completetly intact and readable. That was 11 years ago and the pages are still in use.
