Why can't puffins eat pancakes instead?

My formerly sweet pup, Olive, is on a mission to destroy my knitting fun.  Recently, she's taken to chomping on my bamboo needles (as I knit with them).  Just a minute ago I caught her trying to scurry away with a hank of yarn in her mouth.  She's a dinky dachshund & the yarn was at least 1/3 of her size. She's always been inclined to sit on my knitting projects, but terrorizing them is new.  Putting things in boxes or on high tables is no longer enough, I guess.  Why can't she at least go for my easily (and cheaply) replaced Red Heart yarn & aluminum needles? No, she must have bamboo and alpaca yarn to munch. Evil, I say.
Anyone else have a nutsoid dog (or cat or other)?
Imagine what would happen if I brought her to a yarn store... *shudder*

ah, yes, indeed, my dog Xavier would fall into the nutsoid catagory.  he munched up some of a set of DPNs (so now i have 3) and an aluminium needle.  one night, i came home to find eyelash yarn flung about my apartment, not unlike Christmas tinsel, and him sleeping in the middle of it. Cry  his favorite things in the world are small knit item, like socks or wrist bands--he doesn't tear them up, but he will toss these babies around like he is a 50 lb cat...or just hold them in his mouth!  the best though, is if i am holding a skien of yarn that he thinks looks nice--he sneaks up (without making eye contact) and gently puts it in his mouth, then slinks away as if i wouldn't notice!

Yes, I have an anti-knitting kitten. I have to hide from her when I'm knitting but she still finds me, she must have yarn radar! Here is a recent pic. She didn't have a knitting accident, she's recovering from an op she had last week, but she's definitely better now.

I can sympathize a little bit.  My two cats like to sit in my lap while I knit.  I laugh when people talk of circulars being so good because the weight of the knitting rests in your lap.  Well, I already have a sixteen pound cat in my lap, so I wind up twisted around or holding my knitting in the air anyway.  They don't destroy my knitting, but they usually put a paw the working thread so it has to run between the claws.  I think they can keep an eye on it that way.  Maybe you can knit Olive a toy of her own so she can destroy it?  Knitty has a pattern for cat toys.  The knitted eggroll without catnip might be perfect for your pup. 

As kind of an aside, Tinygoat, Miss Doxie is an internet blogger who writes frequently about her four (!) dachshunds.  Check out this link to read about her truly bad doxies. It's hilarioius!!  It might make you feel better about your little Olive.

Oh, Tiggsey, did your kitty have "the operation?"  She's beautiful!

Mojisha, that site was hilarious! I can't imagine what it would be like living with 4 dachshunds! Eeek! The frustrating thing is that even when they're quite bad, they're still soooooo cute & therefore hard to yell at.
I love these stories & everyone's pets are adorable! It's funny to picture Kadreath's large dog (I'm assuming the one in the picure?) sneaking anywhere.

Well that was the original plan, but they opened her up and she only had developed half a uterus so it all had to be removed Sad

I think she's beautiful too Grin
