Is your dog obsessed with all things paper?

I'm just curious as to how prevalent the paper obsession in Havs really is, so I'm doing just a quick yes/no poll to see.

Yup. Oreo likes to pull tissue paper out of the Kleenex box and chomp on it until I try to take it away from him. Then his jaws snap shut and I can't pry it away from him without the tissue breaking hahaha.

Oh, he also loves receipts that fall on the ground. He'll snatch it up in an instant.

Yes, Brody is paper obsessed. He goes from one piece of paper to the next. He's never met a piece of paper he didn't like!

Dexter loves paper (still likes toilet paper), Jack could care less about paper.

OH, I should have enabled it for people to vote for both. I forgot about people with multiple havs. Bad me.

Tillie had to learn young WHICH paper was okay and which was OFF limits. She controls herself very well ... She will NOT touch any 'regular' weight paper, lined, blank, maps, anything else. BUT I do not leave kleenex boxes laying around ... LOL AND her biggest weakness is tissue paper and the occasional paper towel. but she KNOWS that those acceptable things to shred on occasion. and I DO give her the empty TP roll to play with and shred... but I don't think she's obsessed. or maybe I've just gotten used to it!!

Charley is a toilet paper/tissue/paper maniac. My prior dog, Molly a miniature poodle was exactly the same way. I don't get it but I've always kept the TP on a shelf instead on the roller. Same with tissues and paper. Out of reach is key.

No toilet paper on the holders around our house any more! Has to be kept up out of reach or it will be completely unrolled & shredded!
