Pyper has this bad habit of rifling through the laundry and picking out underwear. She eats the crotch out of them (A few pants too). She also guts and eats the quilts on the bed. Weird thing is, she only does it to my daughter and granddaughters things.
I have almost broke her of picking things up off the street with a "LEAVE IT" or "OUT". But she still like to eat paper!
Does anyone have any suggestions as to why she does this? How I can break her of it?

Ava lived to shred bras. Only the expensive ones though. :screama: I bought a hamper w/a lid and it solved that problem.

Having a hamper would help IF the girls knew how to put the clothes IN it! lol But that wouldn't solve the problem with the bedding.

She also has this thing... she seems to want to show me what she has, then gives me the 'catch me if you can' look. She goats me every time. She knows she has something she is not allowed to have. What a tease!!!

GKar also does the underwear thing. He has never tore any up but he carries them arround and leaves them in the living room which can be embarassing.

I just happen to have my bra laying the doorway right now thanks to Lexy..... What is it with dobies and undies??? Must be that our scent is strong on them because they lie right next to our skin huh? She only grabs my undies, bras, and sock. and She'll rifle through the basket to find them too.

Oh lol That's why I'm glad my husband doesn't wear bras, since his clothes never seem to make it in the hamper. :D

Thanks all... lol.. nice to see I'm not the only one with laundry deficient people (Trying to be politically correct here :) ) living under my roof. I would not mind if Pyper would walk around with the undies, but she eats the crotch out of them!!! I'm sure the sexware industry would love her!! :haha: .

I have actually picked up a bra strap, hooks and all, when cleaning up after her on one of our walks.

Please tell me that this is a puppy thing and that when she's a bit older I won't be picking up laundry with a poo bag.

You have not put on a pair of pants with air conditioning in them. My daughter freaked when she put on her pants and they were crotchless!! (Personally I thought it was funny) but it is adding up in dollars to replace all the undies that have been eaten. Like I said, IF the girls would get their clothes IN the hamper, I think it might solve or atleast lessen the problem.
One odd fact is, that when they are not here, Pyper doesn't seem interested in them. Only when they are home. I wonder if it's a rebellion on Pypers behalf?!

I hope for your sake it will be! My boss has a standard poodle named Curly(Yes, Curly.....) and the dog has a major undie fetish. Only he eats the entire pair and not just the crotch. lol He's had surgery on three seperate occasions to remove panties. :eek2: Some dogs will never learn.

I think that Pyper and Chihiro are long lost twins LOL. Chi has an affinity for socks and dish rags. And what do you do about it? If you chase them the game is on and whether you take the object or not, they win. If you don't then you loose and article of clothing.

Loki has the exact same problem. He eats whatever he can find...towels, dish rags, socks, q-tips, paper, and list goes on. He loves to be chased and I think that is why he grabs them in the first place. Lately, I have been trying to catch him before he gets a chance to run...so the game never begins. However, sometimes you have to dive at him, which can be painful. I swear he does it for attention, because he loves to do it when I am on the phone or computer. Please tell me he will grow out of it!!!!!!!!

Ewwww.... :eek:

I have wondered what it would be like to have the keen sense of smell like a dog but on the other hand, I don't think I'd want to know if that heighten sense came with an attraction to used panties and diapers. Yuuuuck!! :vomit-smi

Okay, I have a funny story. Yesterday, I was in my bedroom talking on the phone. Loki was wandering around, but I didn't think much about it because my husband was in the living room, or so I thought. I was on the phone for about 45 minutes. I go into the living room and my husband is gone. He had gone down to our pond to feed the fish. Well, Loki took advantage of the situation. He had shredded an entire pillow and there was white foam EVERYWHERE!!! So...I tried to grab Loki and of course he ran. I went ahead and started cleaning up and Loki came back. He layed down in front of me and gave me his puppy dog eyes. I couldn't be mad!!

Another time, I had baked cup cakes using those new aluminum foil cups. I had them cooling and left the room. I heard a noise so I went back. Loki was in the middle of room acting like he had done nothing. I pried open his mouth and there were 4 cupcakes stashed in there, aluminum foil cups and all.
