Doggie Michief and Odd Behaviors?

Now This is Mischief!
Maybe I'm just an old fogy (did I spell that right?), but I got a good chuckle out of the letter Dr. Pat answered today over at All Things Dog Blog. Apparently Bob, the dog, is a nice fella who doesn't get into much mischief. Yet his owner was asking about things like eating paper. 

I eat paper, quite often, actually. Anytime a paper napkin, tissue or stray piece of toilet paper (don't ask) find their way into my easy access, I scoop them up and scarf them down. Yum! 

So, moving on to Dr. Pat's comical association with Bob's mix. 

Mischievous + Enthusiastic Chewer = Large Potential for Damage

Since Bob is a Labradoodle, Dr. Pat finds it interesting that Bob is not more of a trouble maker. I concur. Let's face it, those Poodles are really michievous, right? What? You say it's the Retrievers that are ambitious michief-makers? But I'm three quarters Retriever; that's not fair. I'm not mischievous. Case closed. It's a moot point anyway, since Bob is not a trouble maker. So there!

(Allow me to point out that Tanner is the mischievous one at our house; note the picture above where he has snagged a lady's undergarment for a toy. Okay, I'll admit he was a puppy, but still, his taste could use some work.)
