    Brought in groceries just before Christmas and accidentially left a bag of 5 different expensive cheeses on the garage floor while I was putting things away. Strider rooted through the bag, had all the cheese laid out on the floor, but only chose two to eat, the Norwegian smoked Gouda, and the Spanish machego sheep cheese. Each had the Saran wrapper peeled off and neatly placed on the side with the label, no sign of approximately 2 lbs of cheese. The other cheeses hadn't been touched, even one with bacon in it. No digestive problems resulted.......lucky me on Christmas eve!

    Why don't you just shut the bathroom door? That's what I have to do to keep mine from chewing up the roll of toilet tissue or jumping in the shower with me

    Count your blessings!!!! My oldest developed a fondness for soap bars. So I moved them out of reach. He replaced the soap with poopsicles! He has always been the most fastidious of dogs, not wanting even to walk in yards that dogs were aired in. Now he can find a frozen turd in the snow faster than a hawk on a mouse. Wish I had let him keep his soap bars.

    I don't think you people beat your dogs enough.

    My last lab ate soap. Her dog run smelled like soap afterwards when she passed it through her system. We solved it by switching
    to liquid soap in the pump bottle type of containers.
