Another idea I stole from my son. The dog had destroyed a small stuffed monkey that had a sound chip in it .... no great loss. My son was re-building it, claiming it was now a cyborg monkey, taping the sound unit to its outside, etc. turning it into a horrible mockery of what it once was. We drew a cartoon strip of the monkey being rebuilt and just as it was gaining consciousness and dedicating itself to fighting injustice, it gets ripped apart by a dog that's too big for a small suburban house.
