every afternoon when we get home we have a "doodle nest" to pick up. Mudd brings select items from everyones room and piles them in the corner of the living room. These things include, but are not limited to: his bed (which he drags from the bedroom, an old purse of mine he gets from under the bed, 2 small decorative pillows from our bed, random shoes of my son and husband, baseball hats, dirty washcloths and of course socks!
he is NOT chewing or eating these things at all, just piling them up in the living room. Since the bed explosion (which beleive it or not we were able salvage) he has not destroyed anything else (knock on wood :shock: )
I have never had a dodle do his before.

Chouette loves to lie on our shoes or slippers. When we leave her alone, she's usually got a couple of slippers or shoes around her when we get back. So far she hasn't rearranged the house, though. But then we rarely leave her loose; that may come!

I seem to recall that our Dane, when she was young, used to collect a shoe or other object from each family member to comfort her while we were out!

We keep bedroom, bathroom and laundry room doors closed when we are not home so dont know if AB would do that or not, she is not given the opportunity

years ago i had a cat as a kitten would do that and we'd pretend we didn't see her walking by with certain items or where her hiding spot was. she did this for a few months then stopped

MY doodles have never done what you describe.

Nope....if Tanner walks by with a shoe or slipper in his mouth, we are right behind him to get it back. His intention would not be to lay on top of it :twisted:

haha...you said a mouthful there. Dex's sole intention would be to run around with and then try to destrol any such object :) Luckily Kirby totally knows the difference between his dog toys and our stuff so he leaves everything alone (after he sniffs it).

I think he is protecting everyones 'valuable items' (in his eyes) until you get home. I bet he has something that has each family members scent on it in that pile!

That is endearing! If he's not chewing them he's definitely creating a nest of things that mean something to him.....and has your scent.
hahahahahha! I agree with annie.........NOPE! Not here either!

Abby brings her toys to the bed and lays them out quite neatly. Of course she's much better than my kid used to be--SHE BRINGS THEM BACK TO HER OWN BED/TOY BOX ON HER OWN :shock: :shock:

Okay, how DID you do that? I've been trying to teach Chou that, but we haven't gotten past "Take it." Next step would be to bring her to her box and say "Clean up" while encouraging her to drop it. Of course I have been sick, and naturally that's the only reason she's not perfect at it yet! :twisted:
