How Do I Repair a Tear in My Leather Sofa?

Good Questions

Q: My dog finally succeeded in puncturing my leather sofa... any ideas how to mend it? It's only about an inch big, but I have no doubt that the prying fingers of my 3 and 1 year old will find a way to quickly enlarge it. Suggestions (short of getting a new sofa!) would be greatly appreciated.
