Dryer Sheets

Gumbo is sooo good about not chewing on things that aren't his and he knows leave it very well. Well, with anything BUT a dryer sheet. I swear, those are like gold to him. He LOVES to get them and trots around like he's found the fountain of youth.

It isn't like he eats them or won't let me take them away, he's just silly in how 'special' they are (or maybe HE's the 'special' one ...). Anyone else's dogs have an affinity for used dryer sheets?

Not a dryer sheet picture, but still showing his goofiness, none the less.

Too lazy to even think of a siggy

I've always been told dryer sheets are harmful to dogs, so I always keep them away. Was I told wrong??

Our washer and dryer is in the garage, so the dogs don't get a hold of those at all...however, Orion has a weird (and gross) obsession with dirty underwear...

I'd think an unused one would be harmful, not sure about the used ones, other than a blockage issue. He finds the used ones, somehow. He doesn't keep them long.

Aw Gumbo! You're so goofy!

:remembers to tell Dan she wants a pug:

Harley isn't so much into dryer sheets as she is dirty undergarments like Mandie said. I always see her trotting around with Dan's stuff, not just underwear.

My Golden, Kiska, is obsessed with only socks and underwear! It's so weird, because any other article of clothing (even a small tank top of mine that may look like underwear for all she knows), she could care less about! And she seems to steal socks and underwear even more often when they are dirty!!!

Silly dog!

Oh, and she also rips tissues, but only when she is anxious. Is that normal? hehe

And one more thing! Look below!!!:

Kirby is obsessed with used panty liners.

It's so nasty. He KNOWS he's not allowed in the bathroom, but every now and then he'll sneak in there and dig through the trash to see if one's there. So nasty.

My dogs chew on anything and everything they can get there paws on. Garbage,Bird trays (not a good combo), dirty underware (I no,I no its gross) and if we are lucky they will just chew on their toys. every time we leave we have to put up the bird tray(the one under the window perch) and put the garbage can on the table. NOT FUN!
