My girl isn't as bad, she was never much for laundry, nooooo she'd prefer to chew on my house "insert eyeroll". A few things I have learned though is laundry is never where the dogs can get to it. Toys are only the hard chewable kind, no stuffies or ropes (I've pulled more rope out of bums than I'd like to admit too) and DEF. no rawhide!!!! It's not digestible. Instead give bully sticks. If you can't keep an eye on him I'd suggest muzzle training him or you WILL end up with a VERY expensive stomach surgery... If you're lucky. That diarrhea and not eating thing you're talking about is called a blockage, it's what happens when they eat something they shouldn't and can't get it to pass. if it won't pass it can irritate the stomach and cause the intestines to get infections and kill the dog. Life in a muzzle isn't fun, but the surgeries are expensive and death is even worse.
