I have a pit mix who is a mess.
If I’m on the computer and he wants to go play/for a walk, he walks behind the chair and pushes the plug out of the socket. Then he waits for my computer to die, which usually takes about an hour (I need a new battery :/)
If I am laying on the couch watching TV and he wants a spot on the couch, he goes to the window, starts barking and freaking out. While I am looking for whatever he’s barking at, he sneaks away and sprawls out on the couch, leaving me no room at all…
Anyone else have sneaky furbabies?

Mine steals food – from the trash, from the counter, from my purse (I carry emergency snacks…) – and hides it to save for later. I’ve found granola bars behind couch cushions, under the bed, in the closet. No lie – we were moving and found a Twinkie (and a whole bunch of crumbs from who knows what else!) in the mismatched sock bin in the back of the closet. Luckily he’s so stinkin’ excited about treat that he gives himself away by staring at the couch cushion he’s hidden something behind until you get up and catch him. Smart cookie that pup 🙂 That computer trick is really sneaky!!

@CoffeeBeans: I found a stale piece of bread in my couch cushion the other day when I pulled my slip cover off… Also a shredded bag of dog treats…
Haha. The computer thing is still my favorite.
I had to dry my hair in the living room this morning because my FH hogged the bathroom… and the dog tried to unplug that… He couldn’t get that though…

My almost 6 year old peke-a-poo has become a trash shredder… just in the past month? I have no idea why.
This past weekend, he shredded a trashcan of tampons (we can’t flush them here, damn old plumbing!). The house looked like a crime scene and there were many threats of sending him “to the farm.” Argh.

aww how cute are all these furbabies!
Mine hides my things so I can’t leave..keys, hats, gloves, she takes em! I usually find them in her toy bin! The most recent item was my hat, just this past weekend she DID not want me to leave, so she stole my hat! I found it behind the couch 2 days later!

Blue isn’t all that sly when he is trying to be sneaky. He’s deaf so I can’t say “no” I have to sign it to him, so his favorite thing to do is to eat the cat food in the other room, except then he will peek around the corner to see if I sign “no” to him… If I don’t he’ll go back and eat a little more, if I say no he looks pitiful and comes and sits by my feet… It happens every time. He also does this when he barks or growls out the back door (we don’t like him barking in the house), he’ll look at me to see if he gets in trouble… silly dog.
@OP: that is too funny about the power cord thing.

My two shih tzu are paper shredders and always go in the trash to get it.

Haha wow. The socket thing is too funny! Mine work together. One will start freaking out while the other goes for what they want (food, bone, etc) and then they’ll share it. While I enjoy that they don’t hate eachother, it’s so annoying!
They also like to hop up on the bed as soon as FI or I get up (for anything. the bathroom. the light. the door.) and they’ll curl right up in the spot we vacated. Then, when we tell them to get off, they’ll go and sit RIGHT beside the bed looking at us like we’re the biggest meanies and sigh. Literally sigh.

George learned how to open the pantry door; we keep the dog treats on the bottom shelf. We had to put a child lock on the pantry before I was even pregnant, just to keep him out!
Also, not necessarily sneaky, but that clever little monster learned that he could stand at the top of the staircase and throw his ball down the stairs so he can chase it. He’ll do this for hours, if we don’t want to play with him. Sigh. At least he can keep himself entertained.

My little dog Teddy has a thing for hiding his treats in the laundry. He LOVES to take off anytime he gets the chance in the back yard and then will come walking towards you like hes going to come back inside the house and then take off at the last second at full speed. Also, when he wants food and his bowl is empty he will push it around the house until someone notices. He so much like a naughty kid its unreal!

My cat Ares shreads our toilet paper, its quite annoying. I come home from work one day to find it all over the rug in our living room. Also, he steals my hair elastics. He loves playing with them and actually fetches with them. So I can never find them when I need them (going to bed, the gym etc.)
Sometimes he tries to “hide” in random spots and jumps out at you to attack you.. He loves to attack my plants and tries to act non chalently when I try and stop him.
The sneakiest thing he has probably done is finding a way into the ceiling in between the basement and upstairs of our house. We were painting the ceiling and took down the lights so we could paint around them. Somehow he managed to climb up into the hole in the ceiling and started walking all around up there. He was quite content with himself and would poke his head out through the hole and start purring. Eventually he came down but it was funny to hear kitty footsteps up there.
Also, he found a way up there that lead outside so he snuck outside and played in the neighbours yard (and he is an indoor cat). If we aren’t careful with the front door he will try and dart out when we open it to escape.

When they were puppies, we (innocently) left them alone for an hour. We came back and EVERY BIT OF PAPER IN THE ROOM was torn to shreds. I remember taking a picture of it, just to make sure I wasn’t seeing things. I mean newspaper, mail that we didn’t know they could reach, the puppy pad we had left, toilet paper. (They were in the bathroom.) I cried. Lol.
LUCKILY they have grown out of that and now barely sniff at paper.

We’re constantly missing socks. It’s to the point where its rare when either of us have a matching pair. A few months ago I was cleaning under the bed and found a HEAPING pile of socks that our cat had been hoarding. With the socks was also a few of his favorite toys and 6-$1 bills. We’re convinced he’s planning his escape.
