This was yearsssss ago but my parents pup would only take my stuff. She loved my bras and shoes. The most memorable thing she destroyed was my favourite von dutch trucker cap (like paris hilton style… They were cool once upon… I swear) i was devastated. I had saved up all month for the stupid thing and i came home from school and it was in bits.

Our dog wee-ed on our Wii. :-/ We cleaned it up but it didn’t work. We tried again about a year later and suddenly it was working again (I guess it had time for all the innards to dry? Ew.)

Other than that, several sets of blinds, chewed through 2 dog crates, lots of clothes…. Lately his favorite thing to destroy is picking tissues and paper towels out of the trash to tear up. That is FINE by me, considering his alternatives!

We have a 9 month old rotti and thus far he has eaten a bottle of thyroid pills, a laptop cord, his bed, a birkenstock, the sitter’s shoe, a few dish towels, and a few weeks ago he ate FI’s iPhone.

Stupid puppy…but damn he’s cute!

My dog actually hasn’t destroyed anything (although he has gone through the trash for strawberry poptarts).  My family cat destroyed a $5000 painting though.

missamysmiles:  aww!  he’s so cute though!

Our dogs have chewed through a lot of stuff, with the most expensive probably being FI’s prescription Oakleys.  Also chewed on my uggs and my rainbows, but I was able to rescue both.

btw, OP, have you heard of zenni optical?  They sell glasses pretty cheap if you ever need another replacement pair!

Luckily my dog has only chosen to chew on inexpensive items so far…a glasses case (glasses left unscathed), FI’s drum sticks, a cheapo mouthguard from CVS, etc.  

His problem is he loves getting into garbage and making a mess, and he’s had to go to the vet as a result of his shenanigans which is what gets expensive.  He literally ate the entire handle of a plastic dustpan, and a few months later broke a tooth chewing on one of his Nylabone Dinosaurs (not allowed to have those anymore!).  Getting the broken tooth extracted cost about $800.  Ugh.  He got into the bathroom trash yesterday while we were at work so I’m hoping he didn’t eat anything bad or if he did that he’s able to easily throw it up.  He only discovered that can last week (it’s been there since we moved in over 2 years ago) and has gotten into it twice since.  It has a pedal to step on to open the lid but that clearly doesn’t deter him.

My brother’s girlfriend’s dog destroyed the Brazilian cherry wood floors in her old apartment by peeing all over them constantly. That cost $8000 to replace. (Obviously he isnt trained, she doesn’t seem to care?) 

He also peed inside a Louis Vuitton purse. That was salvageable, however.

amoret11:  my dog has chewed my frames twice ( thank goodness I got insurance otherwise i would have been out 200+dollars instead of $50!)

But the most expensive thing(s) he destroyed were the couch cushions! “Luckily” it was the part that you sit on and nothing else, but to replace 2 couch cushions cost us $300+ dollars. 

He did that TWICE. We spent almost 700 dollars fixing the darn cushions, which was almost the price of the couch

He hasn’t had any outbursts in a long time ( he wasn’t even a destructive dog, we think his toy just got wedged in the couch, he ripped the cover, saw the foam and went to town) but we aren’t buying a new couch until he is like 5 haha just in case!

amoret11:  They definitely tore some siding from our house(about $800 worth), countless window sills, and stair railings… Lol luckily that was all while they were puppies, and have mostly grown out of that behavior.

When my youngest dog was a puppy she chewed on the arm of our couch we had bought two months earlier. 🙁 Now we are stuck with a taped up couch until we buy our own place.

My older dog chewed the drywall off in a ring around the room he was left in while we were out. Needless to say he got a kennel the next day.

Not a dog, but my cat has destroyed a $1000 couch and peed in my husband’s Filson duffle bag ($400-$450ish) and my leather BCBG purse ($300ish).

Thankfully we figured out the sources of the little shithead’s behaviorial problems and haven’t had an incident in quite a while.

Our cat chewed the cord to the TV and fried it. It was beyond repair. $500 down the drain. “Free” cat my ass! Lol, but we forgave the little shit.

amoret11:  Eyeglasses

Two Camelbaks

a power supply to my laptop

Multiple military-issue sleeping bags/poncho liners

The rungs to our formerly-very-nice dining room chairs

Despite this list, she wasn’t actually much of a chewer. She just had very expensive taste in chew toys.
