Paper Shredding??? Check!

Someone mentioned that I could help determine Fonzi's breed by seeing if he had the Hav trait of shredding paper. Well, I can officially announce that there must be some Hav somewhere, because I came home today to a shredded paperback, something Lila has never done in her 12.5 years of life.

I'm not sure about who to blame for the eaten pair of shoes, but since Lila prefers leather (which I put up out of reach), I think he might have chewed the flip flops too.

Sigh. Dogs: 1 Laura: 0

With full sincere sympathy, your post made me giggle a little. I'd say there's some hav in there too.

Well, it sure does sound like he is making himself at home Get used to keeping the toilet paper on top of the vanity instead of on the roller. I always have to explain to guests that it is not out of laziness, but out of necessity.

Haha @ the toilet paper.....I have to do the same thing or have it stretched from one end of the apt to the other's hard to get mad at the shredding because they have so much FUN doing it! I remember when they were younger and I was trying to train them to use a pad ..I would come home and it would be shredded from one end of their pen to the other and they would look at me so LOVINGLY with pieces of pad stuck in their chin hair as if to say....LOOK MOM...LOOK WHAT WE DID...aren't you proud? It was hard to be upset over it lol......

tee-heeeeee.. trying NOT to laugh... not working... BWhahahahahhahahaaa!
awesome! So glad Fonzi is feeling right at home!!
and yup, I lost SO many flip flops when Tillie was little. still have to keep them out of sight as she will go after them if she is feeling 'frisky'!

I've found if I give her OKAY things to shred, she doesn't typically shred things she shouldn't... she gets TP cardboard tubes, tissue paper occasionally, and often I will 'oops' drop a napkin that she gets and THINKS it is contraband so she has a BLAST quickly shredding it.

LOVE this post!! So far in 9 months we too have had the toilet paper on the counter so that Thatcher does not have a hay day while we are gone :P I also have lost a pair of flip flops and two pairs of dress shoes (he really likes the heels to chew on). So yes we love our Havs and their love for shredding.

THANKS for the laugh!
