Here's Beau's list so far. He wants to know if his fellow poodles have discovered even better ways to get into trouble.

  • Grab any shoe within reach and run off with it to a quiet corner for a good chew. (Flip-flops are preferred, but any shoe-shaped-object will do in a pinch.)
  • Pull all towels off towel bars, drag to another room, chew vigorously. (Always play tug-o-war when caught.)
  • Snatch Kleenex out of trash can, shred thoroughly.
  • Unroll as much toilet paper off the roll as possible, then tear it up and eat as much as possible before being discovered.
  • Pounce on Ugg boots and pretend to be a fierce predator savaging a furry prey animal. Drag one boot out into yard and leave on lawn to be discovered the next day - after the sprinklers have run.
  • Annoy daddy by grabbing socks, nibbling shoelaces, and pulling shirts off hangers when he's trying to get dressed. (Don't forget to stand outside walk-in closet and cry when he escorts you out and shuts the door in your face.)

OMG, I came home from work and took off my shoes because they were BRAND NEW and had rubbed the beginnings of a blister on my little toe. I took Teddy outside to do his business, then came back in and poured myself a Diet Coke and sat down to finish my work. All of the sudden, I notice my shoe in the middle of the living room floor. I picked it up and saw that the strap was almost completely chewed off.

This is a pair of brand new shoes that I had just bought to replace an almost identical pair that (were nicely broken in, thank you very much) Teddy CHEWED THE STRAP OFF OF. I swear, he's going to get himself a job and he's going to by mama a new pair of shoes.

PS Something is giving him really smelly gas this afternoon. I think he had some of the cat's food again. I've been keeping it away from him lately.

Oh, and yeah, Teddy does just about everything Beau does. They could be twins.

Well, I found another sibling!

Little Zulee does everything but the TP roll (only because we actually keep it out of reach). Hubby is super bad about leaving napkins w/in reach. Who could blame her? Paper with food flavoring!!!! Wahoooo!!!!!

She has a doggy door, so if we are about to catch the little thief with a forbidden item (shoe) from the closet, she takes it outside. If I ignore her, the game is just not as fun, so she goes the next step.

She will casually lift up on her hind legs and grab a receipt, note, or most important paper from my desk table, makes sure I notice what she has, and run run run!!!!

I was doing the trade up with a treat to get it back. Now I start confiscating her toys until she decides to relinquish the stolen loot.

She got particularly annoying last night, so she got a nice long walk today. :D

Here's a picture of her 'helping' me wrap Christmas presents. Gotta love puppies!

The only reason Teddy doesn't shred the TP is because I keep it "backwards" on the roller so it doesn't unroll easily. I have been doing this for years because of all of my cats. He pulls paper towels out of the trash can and shreds them, along with any other bits of paper (like receipts) that happen to fall on the floor.

If he has something he knows I will take away from him, he runs away with it, even if I haven't said anything--I just have to look his way. LOL

Fortunately, at the end of the day, he's just playing and so he's pretty easy to get stuff away from.

My living room rug looks like that picture, only not just at Christmas. :doh:

Lincoln will take blankets off the bookcase I use for blankets, and climb up and sleep on the shelves.
He will jump onto desk, onto tall dresser with cookies on top and knock everything off to eat said cookies
Pull all clothes within reach to his crate.
Dig holes in the yard.

Here is another sibling too! He is committed to destroying my UGG slippers (They are the knit ones with the lambswool lining) and my brand-new Coach purse. I know to hide those when he is out around the house.

LOL! Do you live in our house? :) My mini poo pup would do all of the above if I let him off his leash! He's allow off the leash in our room in the mornings while we get ready and we have to close the doors to the bathroom and walk-in closet or else we would have shredded toilet paper everywhere and daddy would really miss his suits and ties! He also hates it when daddy escorts him out of our walk-in closet!

How old is Zulee? Jager was also particularly annoying last night! Even with his usually two walks plus a puppy training class. Maybe it was the moon's phase or something that only affects poodles...

Poodle puppies are very resourceful and always find ways to entertain them self.

Vaka is just like this she has a great love for shoes, thank god she has only ruined my puma shoes that where already ruined, but I had forgot to put to the trash.

She loves TP and is constantly trying to take it but Charly has been our angel in telling her that taking TP is not ok on his watch.

She is a very active puppy and I knew that when I picked her. Her breeder told me that I was picking the most active puppy. she is just like I wanted her to be but she will be a handful for a few more months.

It helps if I watch her every move.
I know not all people have the time to do that but I do.
So with time we will fix the problems we have :)

I can relate! I keep doors to bedrms and bathrms closed when Paulie is loose in the house-he will chew furniture, pillows, glasses, money, cell phones, cords, dog beds, etc. For a week or two recently, he had gotten better and I thought he was maturing...but he has gotten into trouble again. When I enter a room and he is doing a no-no, he immediately drops it and lies down looking up at me like, "I'm so good!" I don't need to say a word-guess he can read my face.

Boy, do I know that look!

I have got to keep a camera handy for the next time Beau does his patented "I know that you're annoyed, but aren't I just SO cute" look. He does this while crouching down in front, with his butt up in the air, looking up at you with those big dark eyes. You could swear he has a smile on his face.

Zulee is 8 months now. I think she might be entering her teen rebellious phase. Then again, it has been raining and we haven't had the chance to get a really good walk/run until yesterday. Now she is my sweet little angel again. LOL.... until next time.

We are still working on her manners.
