What’s The Worst Thing You’re Dog Chewed Up?

Who are the number one mischief makers? PUPPIES!!! I think you’d have to agree that puppies get into more mischief than most and I’ve been fool enough to be a guide dog puppy raiser for the past 6 years training dozens upon dozens of puppies from 7 weeks to 18 months old.

After all of those puppies the title of Number One Mischief Maker still goes to my very first rescue pup: LINUS.

Why was Linus crowned Number One Mischief Maker? Well lets forget about the fact that he ate 3 remote controls (there were no more left in the house or it could have been more), 2 cell phones, and partridge in a pear tree…j/k

Nope all of those are inconsequential compared to what he did one late summer night…

Linus the Number One Mischief Maker

Aussie puppy likes eating electronics

Can you believe this adorable puppy destroyed all of these things?

By the time Linus was 6 months old he was fairly reliable in the house. He was done with his puppy potty training and hadn’t had an accident in months, but he did have a thing for electronics.  He wasn’t like regular puppies who like to chew on pressed rawhides or KONGs.  Nope!  Linus preferred expensive electronic devices like brand new cell phones and TV remotes.  However, this isn’t about his penchant for electronics.

My ex-girlfriend was living with my sister at the time and Linus was spending the night. My ex-gf and I went out to dinner and a movie and left Linus at home like we had many times before.  We walked in through the front door and everything seemed fine. No mess at the doorway just a happy puppy waiting to greet us.

We headed towards the kitchen and my ex-gf walked back to her bedroom when I heard a terrifying scream. I rushed back towards her room and saw…to see what happened next check out Mischief Master Class (affiliate link).  50% of the profits from Snoopy’s book will go towards therapy dog support charities.

So how do you think this story ends?  What do you think I saw when I headed back to my ex-gf’s room?  Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

    Elka chewed up an Xbox controller…that or the corner of the kitchen wall is the most expensive thing she’s chewed.

    The worst thing Daisy chewed was our coffee table. We still have it (not for much longer though) but it has a huge 4 inch section chewed in one of the base stretchers…..naturally it’s right in front of the couch, where all guests can see it….

    Um…did he chew up the mattress?

    I have a pretty long list of things destroyed. 3 mattresses (not my Blueberry – she’s actually been great), dry wall, carpet, and dog door flap. The first few things on this list are from my previous cattle dog mix – I got her when she was 10 weeks old and let’s just say I was pretty naive about puppy raising at the time. The last item was from an 8 month old foster pup.

    And yes, Linus looks way too cute and innocent. I’m sure someone framed him.

      That’s quite a list your cattle dog mix chewed up. Way to go Blueberry!

      I agree! How could you blame that adorable face :) The only problem was he was my only dog at the time. I guess he could have blamed the cat.

      That’s all my dogs do now, but puppies are a completely different story. Especially if you don’t keep your eye on them like a hawk!

    Hi Y’all!

    Just hoppin’ by to say “hi”.

    Hey, hey…I never got a chance to chew up anything but I did eat the end off the black Kong. Can’t imagine what that little guy got unless it was an expensive pair of shoes!

    Y’all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

      Wow! You were able to destroy the end of a black KONG. You must be a powerful chewer!

      It wasn’t an expensive pair of shoes…although he did also eat a pair of my sister’s shoes :(

    Hey Colby,

    Little Linus was up to Mischief – No, it can’t be true!! Look at his little innocent face!! Tee Hee

    Thanks for the mention buddy – you know me, I’m only 2 and I’ve been up to so much Mischief I’m writing a book all about it!! :)

    Big Wags to all

    And hope you’re all having a fun day,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

      Hi Snoops!

      We can’t wait for your book and everyone is going to have to wait for it’s release to find out what Linus chewed up so you better hustle and get that thing published!

      Take care,
      Colby

    Oh no! That’s not fair! I want to know what it was! I bet it was a cd player!

    Leroy has a long list of things that he has eaten, rocks, cell phones, batteries, pencils, snow globe, the list goes on forever! He doesn’t eat much now, except for rocks:(

    • says

      Wow! Leroy is trying to match Linus and his hunger for cell phones! Luckily Linus doesn’t chew anything these days either…not even rocks…Leroy? A snow globe!?

    Hey it’s Jet here. Hi Mr. Colby.

    I didn’t have the right thinking cap on, because when Mom started thinking of fashion, all bets were off.

    So, according to Mom, she thinks it was either an expensive purse or fancy shoes… can you spell Loubiton? (I can’t either) Jimmy choo? manolo? BOL!!!

    • says

      Good try Jet and Mom, but nope it wasn’t a Loubiton, Jimmy choo, or manolo, but I think there would have been much more than screaming if it had been. I’d fear for little Linus’ life…

  8. says

    Uh oh! Linus didn’t poo on the bed did he? LOL! The worst Freddie has done is the cell phone I guess. It’s still held together with duck tape!!

    • says

      Linus didn’t poop in the bed this time, but he did poop in my ex-gf’s parents bed when he had diarrhea as a puppy. Those puppy months were definitely difficult with Linus.
