"Small Chihuahua" creates a non dischargeable debt for the "Pugs"

A Missouri BK Court caught the Debtors in multiple "false statements" and found that they lacked credibility at trial when they defended a 523 cause of action based upon damages from their "small Chihuahua".  The Court found that they must have had a larger dog because there was remarkably damaged heavy metal doorknob which was chewed up (perhaps the small dog jumped??) and the look from the urine stained floors, damaged doors and doorknob that a large dog or dogs were locked in the house for a longer period of time. 

The Court analyzed the situation under 523(a)(2)(A) and found in favor of the Landlord...named Pugh (perhaps it is pronounced Pug).
