I have been noticing that my miniature loves to chew, steal, hide and play with socks.

She has so many toys, but I always catch her stealing socks from the laundry baskets and bedrooms! I come upstairs and I always find her prancing around with them! I think she loves the idea of getting away with something naughty and she knows it.

Even my boyfriend's toy poodle loves to play with socks. Does anyone else deal with this? My English Bulldog never showed this much interest in playing with my clothes. Haha maybe its a poodle thing? :rotfl:

We have 4 poodles. 2 toys and 2 standards. One of our toys loves socks. Doesn't matter if they are dirty or clean, she just has a thing for socks, doesn't bother any other clothes, just socks. She will pull dirty socks ot of the hamper or steal clean socks from a pile of laundry , just out of the dryer. Our other toy and our two standards look at her like she is nuts and go get one of their doggie toys trying to bait her into playing with them, but "no" if she has access to socks thats what she wants.

Murphy has a thing for socks, too. And slippers. We're always finding her stealing them and taking them to her pillow She doesn't really chew them up but she loves to nibble on them.

In the same vein... Many many years ago we had a white toy, Monique, who had a thing for undies. Clean or dirty, it didn't matter and but her all time favorite were my dads boxers. Every spring, after the snow melted, we'd take inventory of which boxers she got. They were always my dads. ROFL

I might jinx myself saying this but so far non of my poo's like to play with socks. The Wonder Puppy on the other hand.... LOVES them. Ironicly enough, she seems to perfer dirty ones?? Not very princesslike but there ya go LoL. She shakes them really hard to "kill" them and then she gaurds to dead sock from the other dogs. If one of them comes over the see what it is or if I come over to take it away she will run over and try and lay down on it. So far she only likes my dirty socks?? Never seen her with a pair of Johns.

The wardrobe issue I have with the spoos is that they have learned that since mommy carries cookies in all her pockets almost all the time (what can I say, we do a lot of training lol), there are usualy cookie crumbs in those pockets. If they get a chance they will attack and chew threw any unattended pants or scrub top pocket... I actualy don't have a single pair of pants now that has an intact pocket on the inside.. :( LoL. My fault though I guess for leaving them wear the spoos could get them.
