Arrow what has your dog destroyed?!!!

I've seen a lot of posts about my dog chewed... or my dog got into...
and i was thinking about what my dog has destroyed.

so far Levi hasn't gotten anything important but a friends dog ate half of a volleyball and Leia ate the headphones from my ski helmet and my watch

i know goldens love to chew what's the worst/weirdest thing your dog has ever gotten into?

Lucky destroyed a Game shark when he was a puppy.

Buddy and the Yorkies have not destroyed anything.

I do what I like and like what I do. Yorkies- Cozy (4/1/06), Roxy & Zoey (2/11/08), Lucy (4/6/09); Golden- Buddy (4/13/09- Rescued 12/11) Maine Coon cats- Mika (1998) and Tallulah (2000)

Maggie wasn't that destructive as a puppy, but, my mom and dad's golden, Abby, ate all of the linoleum off of the laundry room and stripped an entire couch to the frame.

When we first got Lola at 11 months old--- she chewed up most of the supposssssssssssssssssly "undistructable" toys we bought her. Now a year later- Lola is two years old in a few days and she stopped destroying things other than the paper towel role tube made out of cardboard. She just loves to tear those up!

I was fortunate. Mick never destroyed anything. He did chew on me when he was a puppy though.

Oh dear, I am sooooooooooo embarrassed say...........but my little girl Hunter (who was 2 yrs. yeaterday) chewed up 2 couches and a rocker recliner. UGH!!!!!!!!!! This happened while we were home. OH MY~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Didn't scold her because I felt it was my fault for not giving her enough excersize.

Warmly,
Sarah and my Golden R's and Boston T's

Harley's nickname as a puppy WAS the destroyer! The worst was his continual ripping of lineoleum in what became 'his' room, our mud room. He basically destroyed a 5 ft section of lineoleum in one spot, then ripped up little sections elsewhere. The lineoleum was bad to begin with and had some nicks in it which gave him opportunity to rip and tear. At one point we just laid down a full sheet of plywood to hide the ripped lineoleum becuase we couldn't lay carpet down because he destroyed throw rugs too!!

I'm proud to say my little destroyer hasn't destroyed since about 9 mths old. The destroyer started at 20 weeks though so it was a long haul!!

The worst was when a GSD I had years and years ago chewed my father's sliderule.
Dad was an "old school" engineer and used this sliderule for everything for years.
And this particular sliderule was also special because its the one he used all the way through engineering school at Northwestern University.

When Tuff was just visiting from his previous owners before he came to live with me he would chew up footwear...flip flops and tennis shoes and such. He also destroyed a nice pair of my leather work gloves. Gotta love em though
