    Crystal is a pain for chewing shoes so far to date she's destroyed about 8 pairs of my shoes, and as for collecting, basically its anything that she can get her paws on, socks, pants, bra's, loo roll (with or with out paper on it!) i could go on for ages!

    Bella LOVES to chew up shoes. She has chewed 4 pairs in the last month! She also loves to chew electrical cords. She chewed through 6 cords to the computer in one day! Obviously, once we had gotten replacement cords, we had to contain them in a cord saver. She is only 8 months old, so I know we have a little while longer to go through the chewing stage. We are just way more careful these days to not leave things out! She is very sneeky! But how do you get mad with those sweet brown eyes looking at you? I just love her to pieces!

    Holly is not a chewer, unless Amber looks like she's having too much fun. She likes collecting toys but then just puts her head on the heap and goes to sleep.

    Amber.... hum, yes. She tried to chew one of my hearing aids once - I'd left it on a low table. Luckily I got it back before she did more than dent the case a little, especially when you consider how small HA batteries are!! Now if it's at all chewable I make sure to put it up high, and even then ensure that little Miss I.Q. can't somehow work out how to get to it.

    Gabby always chews my right shoe, not the left shoe, believe it or not whether the smell of my right shoe is more appealing then the left, or maybe she's the first dog to know her left from her right.
    She's also chewed the lead of my daughters laptop, I wasn't to pleased with her. (but the lead was fixed)

    Our Rosie picks up her food dish in her mouth and carrys it off to eat in private. Completely self taught, the problem is she spills a fair bit on the way

    Marlon is a professional shoe re-designer, but he insists on only re-designing one out of each pair!

    He tiptoes into the room and when he thinks you're not looking, he quietly picks up a shoe and tiptoes out of sight. Next thing we hear a tremendous noise as he runs as fast as he can to his crate.

    We call his crate his 'bedroom' and have to raid his bedroom to reclaim all the things he's 'borrowed'. It's not just shoes; it can certainly be bra's or knickers, but he's not bothered by socks. . If he has a stealing frenzy, sometimes he has to put his collectables just outside his crate door - we call that his verandah!

    Haley loves to chew on nylabones and rope type toys. She loves to empty the laundry basket and surround herself with all of the clothes she retrieves. She does not chew them etc... just surrounds herself with them clean or dirty, she does not care. Gotta love them....

    Armani just got done chewing my hubby's new shorts! Hubby only wore them once, yesterday, didn't hang them up. I guess I could always put a big patch and he can wear them while working outside!
    Armani has also chewed hubby's cell phone shortly after we had gotten him. He is quite the chewer.
    Tracer now, he is the shoe chewer. Many flipflops have been thrown the past two summers! Good thing they are cheap!

    I've had such a good laugh at all these responses! Thanks guys!

    The funny thing is, its always been Jack Russell Terriers we've owned and none of them ever did anything like this. So it was all new when I started to notice the compulsive gathering, chewing and collecting of certain items!

    Forgot to say... they both love to chew towels as well.

    Oh, and I lost another bra to the jaws of Murphy today... he came running in with it on his head!!!!! I was laughing too much to scold! Should have taken a picture! He always chews the little 'strap adjusting' bits on the straps so the whole strap comes loose!!!! I think I need to transfer my undies to a higher drawer! lol.
