Mike Evans feared he would be refused entry to Cesar Millan's show
An East Lothian couple worried they would be refused into a dog training show after their pet ate the tickets have been told they can go.
Mike Evans, 58, from Prestonpans, bought the £40 tickets for next week's Cesar Millan's "dog whisperer" show but eight-months-old Islay chewed them up.
Mr Evans said he did not know whether to laugh or cry when he found the Labrador had damaged the tickets.
The online booking agent has now agreed to replace the tickets.
Mr Evans said Nottingham Arena refused to print new tickets because he bought them online.
He said he had been worried officials would refuse them entry as, although he has tried to stick the tickets back together, the bar code has been badly damaged.
He said: "She has never touched the mail before. It is the ultimate irony, we don't know whether to laugh or cry.
"We're both big fans of the TV show."
He added that he had bought the tickets as a Christmas present to his wife, Morag Evans.
However when the tickets arrived, along with other mail which Islay did not touch, she ripped them to small pieces.
Mr Evans said he felt Islay, who is due to stay with a relative while they are away at the 10 March event, did not want them to go.
