My friend had a lab that ate an entire bag of birdseed.

That same dog also ate about $300 in cash that my friend had left on the counter from  selling candy for our middle school fundraiser. The funniest part about that story was that my friend’s mom took the dog to the vet to have the dog’s stomach pumped. She then drove to the bank to see if the bank would exchange the partially digested bills.  They declined. It wasn’t like my friend’s family was poor…they were ridiculously rich. That same dog road shotgun in the mom’s six figure Mercedes. But she still tried to get the money from the bank.

I have a big malamute who used to have a BIG case of separation anxiety. We rent. One day, he ate the bathroom…

Okay, compared to all of this, my dog is the best dog on the planet. I’m so sorry to all of you!


My dog ate not one, but 4 pairs of high heeled shoes. Chewed the heels right off. In a matter of a day, I had 4 pairs of work shoes and then none. She’s also peed on my bed 4 times. Nothing since I moved in with Fiance and we bought a new bed set and mattress, but that was quite the mess.

Shortly before I moved in with Fiance, we had taken a block of cheese out of the fridge, to shred for dinner. We went into our bathroom for maybe a minute. Maybe. We came out to find the cheese was gone, wrapper bare and my dog with a guilty look on her face. She ate the whole damn thing. Nothing we could do, except let it come out of the other end. And boy did it. That evening she threw up everywhere. The laundry room was covered. I kind of wondered if Fiance was second-guessing our invite to move in, but he loves her as his own now. =)

oh my gosh!  These stories are unbelievable!!  I should be thanking my lucky stars that all this dog has done is bit up my ipod, and chewed on the tv remote a little.  Oh and he bit a few bottles of nail polish and ate my bbt thermometer.  Otherwise he’s been a saint!

Yikes! After reading these I’m glad I don’t have furbabies. My mom’s cat eats flowers. The poor woman can never enjoy a proper Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, or anniversary because of it. She’s been known to devour 2 dozen roses in one sitting.

This is one of my fur monsters, Bosco. When he was a pup, he used to eat shoes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I started keeping them in sealed plastic containers to avoid the heartbreak… until one evening, he surprised me by crawling under the bed and opening my sealed plastic containers. He promptly ate every pair of heels in that box.

This is Bosco after he decided to pull the tablecloth off the kitchen table. In the process, he ripped the tablecloth in two. A flower vase shattered, leaving glass and water in the carpet, on my (overpriced) grad school textbooks, my notes, and on my 50 page research proposal.

They weren’t Manolos… but it was a big deal. I cried.

Oh, and I don’t want Bosco to think I’m treating him unfairly here. Our other little monster, Cassidy, is a Setter with a paper fetish. She is sweet as can be, but she has an affinity for shredding paper when no one is watching. She has shredded bills, research papers, and contracts.

RIP, Manolos. Sorry to hear about their untimely demise :/

My dog ate a strip of leather off the couch, she got into the cat’s bathroom (which is locked with a baby gate that the cat can jump over) and ate the cat food and kitty litter (yes, AND kitty litter), she got into the garbage once before and ate all the half-empty cans of cat food (my cat never finishes the full can, I just pick it up at the end of the day and toss the rest) and kitty litter (yes, so she did that twice), my fave pair of pumps (Jessica Simpsons, not Manolos), my fave slippers.. luckily, we knew that dogs, especially puppies, could be destructive and we signed her up for training classes at petsmark (only $100 and REALLY helpful) and kept her locked out of a lot of rooms whenever we were out, but sometimes she can really chew on your favorite things…

Interestingly enough, I feel like she picks my things to eat. Which is fine, my cat picks FI’s things to piss on so I guess we’re even.

ETA: My cat has since grown out of this phase, but when I first got him, he used to find used… female products.. in the garbage and TEAR THEM UP ALL OVER THE HOUSE. Do you know how disgusting that is to clean? I’m going to vomit thinking about it.

@MrsPanda99:  Haha, I was infuriated. But definitely not as infuriated as I might’ve been if he’d eated a pair of Manolos!!

And thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ He’s a menace, but he’s absolutely adorable. And he knows it.

Have you seen dogshaming? I’m not sure how much heartache you still have, but dogshaming.com usually makes me feel better after my pups act like monsters.
