You’ve heard of ‘my dog ate my homework’ – now get ready for ‘my dog ate my violin’.

A very greedy puppy has eaten a violin, and is trying to get away with it by looking cute.

The pit bull, weighing around 78 pounds, ravaged the 1/16-size violin after chewing through a closet door and a violin case.

Only the back of the instrument’s body remains intact, with the neck, fingerboard and strings all ripped off.

Cellist Armen Ksajikian posted a picture of the decimated instrument to Facebook.

He said: “Never a good idea to have a pit bull begin violin lessons!... At least until they’re about hundred pounds!”

After a slew of concerned comments about the puppy’s violent tendencies, Armen decided to reassure people.

“For a brief moment she had to be kept in a room where she chewed through the closet door, violin case to get to her ‘lunch’... it’s really no big deal!”

“There are plenty more of those little violins in the closet! I’ll take the ‘blame’ for posting this!”

Just don’t let her near your sheet music collection...
