What is it about dogs and paper products?

While I was in the shower this morning Gemma stole a role of toilet paper. What a mess she made in such a short amount of time! What is it about adolescent dogs and shredding anything paper?

OMG. I haven't experienced this yet, but expect we all will at some point. This pic is too funny. Needs to be framed!

They love toilet paper! I have read recently on our forum that paper of any kind is no good for them. Why? I do not have a clue! Roki just shreds, he never eats any! Gemma is sweetie with all that shreding job she has done. I cought Roki once in similar situation. he was still a pup. Here is a picture

I don't think paper is a problem as long as the dog is just shredding it. Kodi eats it and that's no good!

The paper thing seems to be a Havanese trait. Mine have all had the addiction and my oldest 8 12 and a couple others still do. They don't eat it, just shred it. My old girl will go into my laundry basket at night looking for a Kleenex left in a pocket.

I keep telling Brody he needs a 12 step program for his paper addiction!

Yep its not just the adolescents - at 3 Panda can steal Kleenex out of your pocket while you are sitting at the table eating dinner. If she was taller she could take on a career as a pickpocket!

Like Kodi - Panda doesn't just shred, she eats any paper....not good...

Lucky at 6 months is a passionate shredder. He is begging at the table, not for our food, but for the paper napkins on our laps. If only he knew what was on our plates. He loves his toys, but the inner cardboard roll from a roll of towels leaves all the rest in the dust. He shreds and doesn't eat as well.
