    We had a Doberman puppy some years ago now. We bought him a big doggy beanbag bed and left him with it in the kitchen/diner while we went for a couple of hours nap. When we got up the entire kitchen looked like a blizzard had hit it, white polystyrene chips everywhere. It took hours to clean up and the vacuum cleaner had to emptied about 4 times during the course of vacuuming them all up. We were still finding them months later. Needless to say he did not get the beanbag bed back again as we didn't want a repeat performance.

    Years ago we had an extra couch in the garage.  Whenever we went on an outing that would last longer than a couple of hours, we put the dogs in the garage - it had a doggie door that opened into a fenced yard area for them.

    When we got home all of the cushions on the couch had been pulled into the dog yard through the doggie door.  I still wish I had a "nanny-cam" set up.  I cannot imagine the sight of this chocolate lab pushing and pulling those huge cushions into the dog yard thru that little dog door!  It was quite a sight because once he got them into the yard he "destuffed" them big time.  It was a hilarious sight really--we had to laugh.

    He was quite a mischief maker, I lost a couple of remotes and a couple pairs of glasses to this guy until he matured.  We recently lost him to old age, 13 years 4 months.  He was my best friend, Duffy.

    It's a difficult choice!  Despite only being left on her own for short periods of time, the dog has wrecked quite a number of things.  Top of the list?  The kitchen flooring - we still haven't replaced it, we have learned to live with concrete, I am just too scared to pay money for her to do it again.  Second choice, my mobile phone.  And a jacket.  I know, I shouldn't leave things where she can get them, but sometimes I get distracted and walk out of the room for longer than I planned.

    From her point of view, the worst thing she ate that she shouldn't have was cat poo :-0 She was a very young puppy and found some in the garden.  She was extremely ill for a good day and a half and hasn't made the same mistake again. 

    She is now two and I think we are over the worst of it....

    My small external harddrive with a ton of things on it; now lost forever. And a few of my laptop charging cables when I didn't have the time/money to replace them!

    We have a miniature schnauzer named Duchess who liked to chew as a puppy but was taught quite early, not to chew on shoes or furniture.  I felt somewhat proud for having taught her that the single word 'don't' or 'stop' when mentioned as she sniffed our shoes and furniture meant that chewing was a 'No - No'!  Little did I know that schnauzers, being an exceptionally smart breed, needed advanced training or more detailed and specific tutoring sometimes.  I failed to mention or instruct our small family member that the remote control for our new stereo was also a 'no chew zone' and if damaged and/or needing replacement over a holiday weekend might just constitute an extended period of silence in our home.  All this ran through my mind as I inspected the remains of said remote after total annihilation one weekend, but I accept full responsibility...

    My dog was never, once, a "trash dog"............that is the VERY reason that he was allowed to be my dog.  I would  not host a destructive or intrusive dog...........I demand a respective and protective one.

    Boyfriends false teeth. He had them on the nightstand in water and the dogs tipped over the bowel and chewed up his teeth.

    My personal dogs haven't been too bad... But when I was a child, our family dog got into my room and decided to chew up an entire collection of giant dinosaur toys that my uncle had just bought for me for my birthday. I was devastated... They were so cool and I didn't even get to play with them!

    OMG - It seems my little pooch is an angel in this company! The worst he's ever chewed (so far) is a book shelf including the books in it! :-)

    A laptop, when our dog was a puppy she pulled many of the keys off of the laptop keyboard and ate them. Perhaps she had a strong dislike for laptops.

    My pug got into my purse that I foolishly left out on my wedding night while we were gone. He destroyed my reading glasses and a few checks that were sent as early wedding gifts in the mail. Do you know how awkward it is to call distant relatives and say "You know that $100 check you sent? My dog ate it. Can I have another one, please?" LOL

    When my Cocker Spaniel was a puppy, each time we'd leave the house, he'd somehow open the shoe closet and chew only on the heels of high-heel shoes!

    Linda,
    Puppy problems?

    When I was a kid, we gave my granddad our mixed breed, small dog.  Granddad left him in the bathroom one afternoon when he went to town.  When Granddad opened the bathroom door, he could barely get inside because Heimy had taken everything off the shelf in front of the toilet.

    Worse than that, he had pulled out my granddad's fishing gear, entangled himself in about 2 feet of the fishing line, and chewed Granddad's fishing rod into about 6 pieces.  He was in trouble but he never knew it because my granddad was soooo patient with him.

    I guess that explains why I could see Heimy (every day) in the field behind their house following behind my granddad, carefully, attentively, making sure granddad was coming back home in time for dinner.  Heimy tirelessly followed him all day
    every day.  I loved his loyalty to my granddad.

    My dog shut my door while she was still in my room and used the bathroom ALL over my room. The bed...EVERYTHING. Hey at least I learned how to shampoo carpets after that!

    One of my aunts used to breed dachshunds (sorry if the spelling is wrong - as children we called them 'sausage dogs').  With one of the litters the mother accidentally bit off the tail of one of her pups!  Funnily enough this pup eventually became my aunt's favorite dog, with her little stump of a tail.

    My dog pooped on my power bar and caused it to smoke.  He had a bit of diarrhea.  So it took a long time to clean up and I needed to by a new power bar.  The first year we had him he wrecked my coat while I was wearing it.  He liked to do jump attacks.  However I would say the power bar was the worst because it was an old coat and the bruises he gave me healed.
