All of my family's shelties have preferred to destroy certain objects over others. My first sheltie went after crayons - she could find them in a drawer, cabinet, wherever. Pavi managed to break most of the double-paned windows in our kitchen, saving the house from deliveries (Pavi was fine!). Olive isn't as discriminating. She'll destroy anything, anytime, anywhere. Today Olive managed to destroy the carton around a Pepsi cube (case of 24 cans of soda). Cardboard shreds were *everywhere*. I'll admit I watched her do it, and took pictures, because I figured better that than something else (I know, I know). She managed to get one can partway out and fang-punctured it. After her initial shock when the soda exploded, she tried to drink/bite it. When I got it all cleaned up, I turned around and what did I see? Olive reaching up and licking my plate on the table, then Olive stealing the spoon and running off with it, and last but not least Olive stealing yet another can of soda. She has figured out how to open the pantry. Last week I'd come downstairs to find almost everything from the bottom few few shelves spread over the kitchen (mostly canned goods, but also a tin of tea bags which she fortunately didn't get open). Funniest thing she's stolen and gotten the puppy rips with? The toilet brush!!!
