Still staring at me through the corner of his eye, he put his front legs on the counter and slowly opened his mouth, and was going to grab the roll of paper.
This made me laugh because my female does the same thing - she'll jump up, put her paws on the desk beside me & sniff around. Then she'll start to crane her neck ever so slowly to grab something on the desk & I just watch because, surely she can't reach that!, but her neck just keeps stretching & stretching & then, ever so calmly & smoothly, she'll pluck the object in her sights & off she goes! She gets me every time! :p
My basenji mix girls definitely got the tp trait…. The older one (Sasha) likes the stuff, and will sometimes steal a paper towel or kleenex if you aren't watching.... But my baby girl (Macey) LOVES THE STUFF..... She occasionally will snatch it out of your hands (even as your hand is in route to use it on the toilet), but that's only if she hasn't had her "rations" in a while and she's upset about it. Usually, when she hears the tp roll moving or sees it in your hands, she'll promptly sit like a good girl and look expectantly and very intently at it, expecting you to hand it over for a treat. If you don't, it's like she makes a mental note and next time you need some tp, it's HERS.... However, she is a fair-minded girl. If you tear off ONE sheet and offer it to her as a peace offering, she'll tear it up in the bathroom or hallway by herself and let you use as much as you need without being bothered again.... hahaha.... She knows how to bargain, that's for sure!!!!
Yesterday was the first time Gossy got the bug – not the tp but the tissue box. It was a really really windy day and the box fell off the counter (which is next to the window). Yup she found it and had the tissues (chewed and unchewed) strewn allllllll over the place.

TOO funny! Thanks for the laugh. I needed one this morning!
These are hilarious! Miles is a TP freak too. Well… He really only likes the roll; not the actual paper. His favorite paper-product is a q-tip though. UGH!! Those are so nasty to have to pull out of their mouths!!
Lexi (knock on wood) has NEVER shredded paper or cared about paper-products!!
My rosey is a TP-aholic, she just cant resist it if she finds a roll anywhere, she can shred a roll in about 10 seconds flat also my bathroom trash bin has to live on the back of the toliet.. or else you'll find its all over the house even in my bed ohh the horror…
My friends with other breeds of dogs keep saying why oh why do i let her run my house they simply have no idea
Jaycee has not done the toilet paper yet but her and the trash can right after we got her was unreal. We had never had a puppy get into the trash can. This was not mean and did not hurt Jaycee.. My daughter was in the kitchen peeling pot's and pulled trash can over by her and Jaycee went crazy like it was chasing her. We had something in there that made noise and she did not like it. After that ever time Jaycee would look at trash can we would take it act like it was going to get her. Then when she seen the out door can's she ran like o no that is the parent's to that little can in the kitchen. No more trash problems lid can be open and she no touch. However she has made up for getting into many many more things but thats ok.
Abby loves paper period. It doesn't matter what kind, paper towels, paper plates, toilet paper, news paper, magazines, homework, tissue paper, but I think her favorite is kleenex she will pull one out of the box and shred it, then she will pull another out and shred it until the box is gone, then she shreds the box!
Otis, his nick name being No-Otis, has found TP or as my hubby calls it **** tickets and he loves it, but the most favorite thing of his has got to be damp towels, he will even pull them off of our towel warmes which are high, about 3' up on the wall. He also has a fascination with our trash can in the bathroom, one of those with the lid swinging back and forth, if you get the lid going he can sit there and stare at it until it stops…several minutes of stillness in an awake B...that is huge, at least at my house. The really annoying thing about the TP is that now our Schnorkie, Luna has followed his footsteps and I think she might also have gone past him in tearing it up...she never did that until she saw him doing it a few days ago...cool, a new, free toy, she thought..DD ( also internet shorthand for darned dog...)
