Damn you dogs!

I took my mother to the botanical gardens for the day. I get home and find parts of 4 paris of my shoes neatly spread all over my house. My cleated riding shoes, my good dress shoes, one of my oxfords, one of my loafers.

I guess the bright side is I took mother to the garden and not a play. Better to be wearing only hiking boots for the foreseeable future and not stuck with a just a pair of uncomfortable wingtips.

Your dog worked diligently and was a busy doggie. He should be rewarded for not being a lazy layabout. He saw how you struggled to always keep your shoes in one central place and...voila! Now everywhere you go, you can enjoy pieces of your favorite shoes!

Beware, the doggie brain is always at work!

Some dogs will build a protective barrier of their owner's stuff in order to let other dogs know they are part of a pack. My little neurotic girl dog always erects forts around herself when we leave her.

My dog Vic chewed up the wooden frame around my garage door! He doesn't know how close to "gone" he is! I love 'em to death but I'll be damned if I'll let him ruin my home!

Well . . . all I can do is question the person who brought the dog(s) home. After all, dogs have a propensity to:

Crap in the house you pay big money for.
Chew on shoes you pay big money for.
Get into garbage and spread its filth around your home, again, that you pay big money for.
Shed hair all over your furniture (my furniture from Ethan Allen and Thomasville would never see a dog's azz) you pay big money for.
Make unwanted noise when I expect peace and quiet.
Bite the plumber because you just wanted to "introduce" your dog to me (See earlier thread on dogs) which came very close to you
being sued, and I certainly would have won hands down and
Losing your dog for good if your dogs shots and vet records were not up to date.


Yeah, I like dogs alright, the ones that belong to other people. Me? Would not own such a thing. Give me your seven reasons FOR dog ownership.

Well, I expected a different tale based on the thread title, but this is better

Better to have your riding shoes chewed by a dog this way instead of while you are riding in them.

My dog has a tendency to curl up next to my elbow which was hyper-extended in a bike crash a few years ago. Perfect.

We have a dog, that when it was a puppy had a fetish for my wife's black shoes. Only hers, only the black ones. And it would only chew on one of a pair. I thought it was pretty funny, my wife, not so much.

Buy a trike or a trailer and do base miles with the dog. No need for big hills that way. Dogs can be crate trained and happy. The den for a wolf is often just big enough to stand up and turn around. My dog loves his crates, but they are always open. I drape a blanket over them, he likes the quiet and the security.
Start with an open crate and toss a treat in there once in a while, to get him to go in. He will probably start liking the crate. Find him something like a dog toy/treat for him to chew. Start giving it to him, eventually he will want it. If he gets to chew enough while you are home, it might relax his need to chew when you are not there.
You have to invest some time. but eventually it will work.

We just close the bedroom door when we leave. We found out that we had to do that the hard way.



If we leave him alone for too long, though, he insists on more walks. I can't say I blame him.

She wanted one of her own. She loads hers with Catnip, though.

Why do you actually need something that chews, craps, barks, drools, sheds and dribbles all over your house? And no I am not describing a certain forum member from Holland with that statement.

Is it somewhere you are lacking in feeling "loved"? What about companionship? I need none of these things as my wife and I are perfectly content being WITH EACH OTHER and not some dog fighting for bed space between us. Grow up Ethan, dogs are not requirements to a happy and fulfilling life such as some here feel.

You aren't allowed a dog because your wife is just afraid that she'll have to deal with all these behaviors from the dog as well as you.

Yeah, I like dogs alright, the ones that belong to other people. Me? Would not own such a thing. Give me your seven reasons FOR dog ownership.
1. Saving a life from being put down in over crowded shelters.
2. Loyalty
3. Lifelong companionship
4. Exercise partner at any time
5. Protection
6. Unconditional love
7. A lesson in life...and death... being able to watch from the beginning to... the end.

Money and property can be easily replaced. Money cannot buy what having a dog as family gives you.
