I was just wondering if your dog has a favourite thing of yours that no matter how well they know leave it, if they find it they play with it..
Mine will find socks I have misplaced for months, and her newest embarassing habit is digging through the laundry for undies... This is great when my bf forgets to close my closet door and there is company over.. *dies of embarassment*

Nala loves to steal socks, paper, important bills, anything on the floor. Well i am not going to write everything because it would be a 1 hour reading thing. But she loves to steal bounty paper off the counter.
Bowen isn't much of a thief, thank goodness. His favorite thing to steal used to be any food Caitlin was carrying.
Now that he's older and wiser, he steals warm spots on the couch. As in, if you get off the couch to go get a soft drink, no sooner have you gotten up and taken a step than he's curled up warm in your former spot and giving you a "Hey, you snooze, you loose!" look..
When Nikko was a pup, she'd steal anything she could get her paws on, now all she does is lay around..I guess it takes too much energy to try to find something to steal.
ChiChi I never had problems with, until DD started getting into Bratz dollz. ChiChi will go into Jas' room and steal the Bratz pieces, mini pillows, mini stuffed animals..anything Bratz. And all you hear is "CHIIIICHIIIIIIIIII DROP ITTTTTT..MOOOOOOOM!!!!!" and woosh Cheech is under the bed.
I'm glad to know I'm not the only one with a panty thief. I was starting to feel really odd. It's rare when people in real life share stuff like that about their pets I've found.. I was starting to feel like I owned a lil cute freak.
Mine are panty thieves as well! LOL, i thought i was the only one :) Another weird thing they both try to steal is the rubber stopper for the bath tub. They are both OBSESSED with getting at it! If the bathroom door is open for a second they start searching for it. How weird :)
Shilo will try to steal ANYTHING from me just so long as she knows I DON'T want her to have it, lol. Doesn't matter what it is, could be nothing more than a paper cup or piece of glass, but she'll be after it the second she senses that I am keeping it away from her.
Georgie loves to steal anything that will get you to chase her. The best way to get her to leave it is to walk away. She loves socks, underwear and anything in my purse. She gets extremely excited when she gets a piece of Bounce fabric softener. She can hardly contain herself. Sometimes I have to chase her just to make her day!!
My roomate thinks they go after undies because they would be their owner's stongest scent. I see the logic.. But it's kinda gross.
One time I had my laundry in the hall waiting to take it to my car and she pulled a pair through a hole the size of a quarter through the side of the basket. I came back and she was having a field day. I was so disgusted.
My Golden Retriever, Kelsey loves to steal anything that is not nailed to the floor but mostly shoes and shirts.
Goldens were bred to retrieve and that is exactly what she does. It's just sometimes I don't like it.
My Parson (Jack) Russell Terrier, Jackson steals a lot of stuff too. His favorite are socks and slippers. I think it reminds him of rats or something because he shakes it and growls. He kind of also "hunts" them.
Last night, Cider cut herself on a nylabone that she chewed more off of then I think should have ever happened, and I took a good look at her teeth since she seemed to have cut herself. Somehow I missed that she was lacking 3 teeth to come in. She's decided she's so chewy and in pain that everything I gave her to bite wasn't enough.
Last night she stole my razor off the bathtub, 2 pairs of socks, kleenex from the garbage, somehow got onto a 2.5 foot high desk (she's like 12" at the withers) and was chewing the edge of the desk, stole the essay I was writing (see the dog really did eat my homework!), and got a cupboard open and dragged my haircryer through the house.
Mafia, I'm the one with Toby the panty thief! He steals anything out of the bathroom trash can too. Qtips, tissues, paper of any kind, toilet paper roll etc. He will get into my purse and take stuff out too like papers, gum, and whatever his little mouth can drag out. Back to the panties though, when he was little, he got ahold of a pair of thongs and came out of the bedroom with them all wrapped around him and he was all tangled up in them. It was too funny!!! I have a picture of it. LMAO!!!
wendy i want to see a picture of that on alias toby's page lol. when i was watching my parents dogs one time while they were away i walked into their bedroom to get one of the dogs and she is chewing on something she got out of the bathroom can . i was completely grossed out by what it was, condom. dogs are just nasty in their choices of things to chew on.
*dies of laughter* Digi cam or normal film? If it was normal film I'd love to see the look on the developer's face if they were actually paying attention. That would be a really adorable picca though.
I really thought it was only me with this issue, and it was embarrassing enough to maybe not post about it, lol. Cider ONLY goes after my undies. And all I wear are thongs. She has learned how to nose open my closet, and digs through my laundry at the least appropriate times, and lays down in front of company with her 'prize'. Most of the company is fairly aware of what she's stolen, and on a bad day she wants to be chased around before she will actually give them back.
