The couple, from Winchester, has planned a vacation and had been all set to fly off on the £2,500 (about $3,300 USD) week-long holiday with their three young children, Erin, nine, Tilly, six, and Harry, two-on Tuesday.
Unfortunately, the mum of three children didn’t save the passport or couldn’t keep it away from the family puppy, who then ate them.
The self-employed childminder said: ‘It was just so deflating and stressful.’
The family was going to join friends on the all-inclusive trip on the Spanish holiday island.
Now cocker spaniel Bailey is truly in the doghouse after Ella, 32, and her partner Russell Mack, 35, were forced to cancel their trip to Majorca.
But Bailey’s antics left them with no choice but to put it off.
The family was unable to use the normal 24-hour fast-track service because they were child passports and the airport warned them that it wouldn’t accept ones that Ella had desperately tried to tape together.
In a bid to be ‘super organized’, Ella had decided to check-in on Saturday night.
She added: ‘It was quite late though so I left the kids’ passports on the side.’
Miss Arundell said: ‘Russell came upstairs and said: “We’re not going on holiday”. I was devastated, they were all chewed up.’
She tried hard to fix them for the next two days, but couldn’t fix it.
She said: ‘They looked rubbish but we were clutching at straws.’
She said: ‘If they were ours, we could have got new ones the next day. But if it’s a child under 16, there are child protection issues and it takes seven working days.’
In the end, the couple has had to pay for the holiday company On The Beach £1,000 to change their plans to go a month later.
