amoret11:  Is “himself” an option? 

Dog dug a hole and slid himself under the deck. Behind gets stuck under the deck and he breaks his own leg getting out

$4k surgery later, he’s now got pins and a rod in his leg, and he is now one of the most expensive things I own

My dog has only ruined clothing. More specifically, my dirty underwear. Yeah. 

He’s also licked/chewed a hole in the crotch of a pair of pajama pants I left on the floor. It’s my own fault at this point. I need to start utilizing the laundry basket more often.

amoret11:  I had a dog when I was young who literally ate anything. Not just chewed stuff.. actually ate it. He once consumed my friends mums $800 italian leather shoes. There was nothing left but a bow.. lol that dog had an iron stomach!

When my staffy was a pup(about 7months) she literally destroyed my !$1500 lounge! We left her inside one night when we went out to a friends place for a BBQ. Came home to a sea of foam, fabric and a wooden frame. Man was I pissed. Took forever to pick up all the pieces!

Our puppy ate our couch (he’s a large puppy) when he was about 7 months old.  Not just chewed it up, but literally ripped it apart.  There was couch all over the living room.  Now our new sectional has one of those invisible electric fence wires wrapped around the base (plugged into the wall behind the sectional), and the dog wears a shock collar whenever he’s unsupervised at home.  Works great.  He doesn’t go near the sectional at all, even when the collar is off.  He’s only shocked himself a couple times (it beeps a warning first).  Turns out he’s a fast learner when it comes to a static zap.  We were a bit unsure about the whole thing at first, but we tried the shock levels out on ourselves and decided they were unpleasant, but not cruel.

My dog hasn’t really destroyed anything. My cat on the other hand has destroyed a couch and a few other things.

Does my horse count?


He’s managed to destroy a $50 saddle pad, $150 boots, $45 bridle, $30 halter/rope and one of those large metal gates (thankfully the place where I boarded him at the time paid for the fix, as it happened in a thunderstorm and all the horses went through the gate. Mine just happened to go first and wrecked it). He’s a wee bit expensive and likes to eat anything that looks tasty. He also likes to drop everything in 2 feet of slick mud and watch me try to get it back, the little poop lol.

A pair of $400 cycling shoes and a $350 helmet. But in all fairness it was my ex bf’s fault for leaving them right in front of the dog. And he was a puppy so at the time liked chewing on stuff.

Ohhh and the BUMPER of my brand new sporty Lexus I had just gotten at the time. Rhe car still has the marks. They are now a good memory of a very loved four legged friend that passed away.

I was in the middle of an art inspiation burst when i discovered that my dog chewed the crap out of my brand new wacom intuos graphics tablet pen. Individually they’re hard to replace and are expensive as hell. I was livid.

her knees and ACL… cost easily $20k to fix (thank god for insurance). 😛

um.. aside from that, an empty jerky bag.  She’s non-destructive, the only thing I’ve ever seen her rip up was an empty jerky bag that I’d left in the trash within reach, and left her home alone for 5 hours or so.. guess she got hungry.
