Hah! Funny that you say that Mikey. Harley has some odd obsession with stripping the fuzz off tennis balls too. She will honestly "skin" a tennis ball in a few minutes given the chance. She also stalks the cat. She will slowly creep up behind him like a cat stalking a mouse....and then pounce. I kinda feel bad for the cat as he is a mere 12lbs and Harley is 65lbs, but he holds his own. Harly also has an obsession with large organic carrots. They are like crack to her.

OMGosh! Lady likes to take the outer coating, fuzzy stuff off of her tennis balls too, but then she likes to eat them!!!! IDK! She just did this a few days ago! She always stripped them down to the rubber, but never ate them! She must have a new faddish!

When we go on walks through my college campus we pass a lifesize lioness statue and Yukon always sends a growl her way as to warn her not to move (and she has respectfully obeyed this request LOL)

Yukon also loves socks. He doesn't tear them up but he will bring them to you when you get home or to guests as if you offer a little gift! He will go through an entire pile of laundry to find the socks; nothing else. And he likes clean ones too. I should get him some of his own.

He also brings me his food bowl at the times I usually feed him and he will bring me his leash. I didn't teach him either (on purpose anyways) He has probably just learned to relate those objects to events he likes; eating and going for walks on campus to see his lioness!

Bear loves to show me where he poo'ed. He'll race around and them as soon as I get the pooper scooper, he's pointing out exactly where he pooped. He's my poop hunter. hahahahaha!

Cara generally leaves one pellet of her meal in the food dish. We have no idea why!

Coach is a toy hoarder. He hates having toys spread out in a room so he collects them until they're all in one place then continues his play time.

He also is obsessively tidy while eating (not that I'm complaining!) He has to eat any food that spills out of his bowl before eating the rest.

Looking at those two things together perhaps I have a puppy with OCD..

Clearly lots of distance in bloodlines between your GR and mine!

Bogey believes stuffed toys are only wrappers. The toy is inside (the fluffy white stuffing), and once accessed should be spread out as far and wide as possible. But that is only after the 1. tags, and 2. eyeballs have been removed.

Okay, I couldn't think of anything for awhile but I made the mistake of looking in the backseat of my car. Every time we go out to the car, Maddie has to find a stick, usually something significant, not some little twig.

These sticks get dragged into the car, some have been pretty difficult for her to manage to get in. Today's was wider than the gap between the backseat and the front seat. It broke off in the process of her getting ensconced in the car.

There is quite the collection of stick debris now. I have to pick up some friends for a conference this week, so I will need to remove her carefully collected hoard.

Dry wall

My girl Daisy literally eats the house.....she LOVE drywall and has chewed several holes in our walls. I tried to patch the holes but before I knew it she was licking the patch mud off of the wall. She even chewed a hole in the wall while INSIDE her kennel. Silly dog! Hard to remind my husband that in a few years all of these holes will be funny.
