When Tango was a puppy, I was pulling an all nighter grading exams, and calculating semester grades for the college at which I taught. I was submitting them remotely via laptop. Tango chewed through the mac energy cord that was laying unplugged on the bed for when I needed it ! It was a disaster, and I had to take a shower, and drive an hour each way to the school to get the grades in on time.

Cleaned them up, lined them up in zip lock bags and the bank got a good laugh. We were still a few hundred down because we couldn't line up the serial numbers so the bank said to sent the confetti to "mutilated currency" at the mint in DC. We actually made a few dollars. She ended up destroying a couch and a few plants too. She was a wonderful girl that lived until the age of twelve.
WOW I would go crazy if my dog ate that much money!!!!!

The funniest in hindsight, althougt definately not at the time; my husband being at teacher bought back exam papers to mark one evening left them on the table, the next day and when I come home for lunch I discover that he has eaten or torn them all up. Needless to say it didnt go down well with the kids or headmaster but now Jasper is notorious in the school and the kids often wind my husband up about it!!

Good job I love him so much!!
that's a new one "teacher:sorry my dog ate your homework"

When Jake was going through his chewing stage, I came home from work and saw a picture of the pope in the foyer - then I found the rest of the bible shredded, chewed and littered across the living room floor.

He ate my bible, but as the southern chrisitans would say "he was filled with the word".

My heart dog, Leo, destroyed the bottom of some drapes when he was a puppy. He laid there chewing on them for I don't know how long until the bottoms were in shreds. He only chewed that and a leg on my piano and then his chewing phase was over.
Helo destroyed the remote to my DVD/surround sound system. Lucky I had a spare in a closet. Helo likes to chew anything plastic so I have to keep DVD cases and remotes and containers out of his reach. I think he's about 8 years old so I don't think his chewing will be something he grows out of!

To date Buddy has chewed two of my husband's X-Box headsets and two sets of earbuds (one was the Beats earbuds too, so they were pricey!). Oh, and wallpaper, he destroyed one wall and a door at our old apartment.

He doesn't chew anymore unless it's a chewtoy we give him thank god!

Most expensive was my lab. I just bought a new tablet and left it on the couch and left her inside to see how she would do alone. She bit the tablet cracking the screen.

And then these...
