    It's very hard to be house proud and a dog owner!
    Share the things in your home that your pups have wrecked, maybe post a pic if you have one! :D

    When we first got Tribble from the rescue we had no idea she liked to sit on the windowsill! While we were in bed she bit a hole in the wooden blinds so she could jump through it like part of an agility course so she could perch on the window! (She's not a small dog either- big hole!)
    When we first moved into our house we noticed that the large mirrored doors to the wardrobe had a big crack in them, the previous owners explained that their patterdale had seen his reflection in them, thought it was another dog and ran up to say hello :D
    My first guide dog, Nash, chewed through all the fences in my mum's garden. He also found a new bra and took a bite out of each cup :scared:
    He got his head stuck in a cat flap once too but that's another story!

    Eurgh I'm dreading the cat flap that's coming with our new back door.

    Only magazines for Milo, to be precise my dads old motorbike mags dating back to the 1960's that' I've tried to get rid off myself and my mum. Well Milo has helped with that, and no I did not teach him either lol.

Also various shoes, toys, brooms and mops, sooooo many dog beds and last but not least the actual stairs :eek: can't even replace them or hide it in any way :lol:

    I can't believe Tribble bit a hole in the blinds!

    My dog's had several pieces of important mail and one cuddly toy, so not too bad, so far. My Mum told me she once had a puppy that chewed a lump out of the kitchen wall...!

    Oh :D

    Our GSD had a taste for everything she shouldn't :lol:

    In the first year she chewed her way through:

    A wall
    A door
    A stable door :)eek:)
    A plant that I had had for years (little git!)
    A table, one of those rather large bulky wood ones, she ate through the legs like they were corn on the cob.
    Lipstick ... she loved to eat my lipstick and lipgloss!
    A carpet. She loved to get a tread from the carpet and practically run through the house with it. We would go and look at the carpet and find it had unwound just like knitting does if you pull the tread :lol:

    After that year she just simply stopped! At least she got it out of her system :lol:

    Lets see...

    when we had woody as our first dog in this country we made the mistake of leaving the doors open upstairs. So what did he do? Chewed literally everythin we owned including everything of mine which was of sentimental value that i'd brought from home.

    With Dante...it was my mobile phone and everything else - we didn't learn from our last mistake lol

    We learnt from our mistakes though and now no doors are open upstairs. Mika has only chewed up a top my sister just bought - she wasn't amused. lol. Lets see..he took a liking to the leg of my mum's dressing room chair and thought it would be fun to chew the carpet lol. but he didn't do too much damage to the ccarpet though.

    Today they have had a dining chair and a wicker washing basket. Last week a sofa, the week before that a shoe. My little darlings are at that notorious age - the delightful 10 month stage. :D

    Adam- 1 computer cable
    Hannah- 1 harness.
    Heidi- nothing!!:D

    However the cats have totally shredded an entire wall of paper, pooped and weed on every available surface and put claws through various pieces of antique furniture. Oh and my old house rabbits have eaten holes in the walls in 3 rooms.:rolleyes:
