Misc stories about their past etc.: The first year after I got her she proceeded to destroy 2 dog crates, eat multiple holes in the walls of the kitchen, chew a hole through the kitchen door leading to the basement, tear up a section of the kitchen linoleum, and tear a hole in the living room carpet. All while having access to all the chewy toys she could want! We like to say she just knew we wanted to do some remodeling and was just trying to be helpful, luckily she didn’t hurt herself!
