I guess this picture pretty much sums it up! As you can see, one of Copper’s favorite things to do is toilet paper the house. This did not happen just once but many times. He has also chewed several pairs of my shoes including 8 pairs of Haviana flip flops, pillows, seat cushions and the much more acceptable dog toys! One of his worst mischief making was pulling food down off the counter! Fortunately as he has grown up, he is getting a lot better.

Cody likes to carry around my underwear and not the clean ones either (Sorry!). He has jumped through my friend’s car window, fortunately it was down. Chewed on shoes but only the good ones. No crate could ever hold him. Opened the gate to the backyard and sat on the front porch whining. Almost ate a $100 bill. Hides dog bones in my fabric and stalks my roommate!

These are just the little ups and downs that go with living with dogs. I’d love to hear your mischief stories.

I have a 'Copper' of my own -- his name is Jake lol When we first got him we didn't know anything about his destructive tendencies... Came home to a phone book confetti party. He also likes to get the toilet paper... He chewed up my husband's belt and finished up by chewing the belt loops off the pants lol When we go out now he goes into his own little crate -- we call him 'Jake in the box' lol We are careful not to leave him in too long and so he LOVES his crate. He runs right in when we get ready to go -- I should add that he gets a special treat for being so cooperative :) I think in a way he's glad to be saved from his own bad behavior :)

Sasha is so the queen of mischief. Not only can we not leave her alone when we leave the house. We can't leave her a lone for a minute. She is into garbage can tipping and enjoys chewing up anything and everything. She even once managed to get out of her crate right in front of me, and I still don't know how she did it. It was so quick. Almost, like see mom you don't need to lock me in cause I can so get out of this. Well, she managed to get through 3 babygates as a puppy. I seriously think the laws of physics don't apply to dachshunds or at leat mine.

Copper sounds like my Giupetto, who we also call my little devil.
He LOVES my slippers. He used to sneak in my closet and chew my shoes, until we put a decpy shoe in front (the other one was chewed). He also likes to rip up napkins and TP.
My Gianna is th escape artist.
I love reading everyone elses stories as well. Great blog.

Oh noooo, Annie!! I'm so glad my furbabies have grown out of tearing up my personal belongings. I am entertained daily by some sillyness they are getting in to. I do buy them stuffed animals at garage sales, because they destroy them so fast! I have found that the ones for infants are best. They usually don't have any parts, like plastic eyes, that can be swallowed.
Aren't we lucky to be in the company of such clowns!..."Jake in the box!", LOL!!
