My cats like to play with/chew on yarn as I'm knitting.  My dog is pretty chill now (she's 6) but when she was younger, she'd eat not only yarn (usually she'd "gut" the yarn by pulling out the yarn from the center of the skein, then drag it around the house) but also needles.  There's a reason that I use only aluminum needles.

not crafty related exactly, but we have five shitzu's ((two purebreed, one mini poodle mix, one terrier mix, one bichon ((sp?)) mix)) and the two full breeds...one is obsessed with b-a-l-l-s((we have to spell it around him)) and the other is a food freak...well one afternoon i was eating a muffin, and these dogs are spoiled, they basically eat whatever it is that we're eating...and i went to give him a piece of the muffin, and george((the dog)) STOLE THE MUFFIN PAPER and ate half of it before we could get it away from him....

the other full breed pokey ((short for pokemon)) likes balls...round things...squeaky toys...etc.  hes a play brain. we think he might be a little slow. but he likes to steal my wound up skeins of yarn and then try to run outside with them.  i dread to know what he would do with one if i didnt notice it gone very quickly...

Well, my dog eats crayons...but only the black ones.
And my cat is my own personal paper shredder (but only for paper I need, or want, of course, like that 60% off AC Moore coupon or my French essay. Sometimes also wrapping paper.)

My cat will sit on ANYTHING I am focusing on on, be it crocheting, knitting, fabric, Laptop, book, paper mache... This very moment she is on my kneck since I am laying down with my laptop on my lap. She already tried to lay on the laptop, but I kicked her off, so she layed where I cannot see the screen. Luckily, I can restmy head on her back and still read and type. She also likes tearing up the paper I need, such as coupons, homework assignment, unsent letters.... She also has a thing for sitting in boxes... It is like an OCD....

My dog will take whatever stuffed toy I am making 9Of which I make tons of) and will tear them in less then a minute. I have lost many things to that animal.  Angry Crocheted Amigurumi and felt stuffies are her favorite. She will also randomly grab paper plates, napkins, muffin papers, ect off the table and devour them.

And worst of all!!! WORST OF ALL::::

Sin... My snakelet. It is suprising what damage this small adorable serpent can d, obut believe me, it is shocking. I often take Sin out while I am crocheting or something, since she needs the excersise and I like having a companion I can randomly talk to. Well, When I am crocheting, she decides to slither around my fingers, so I cant move them without her scaly body getting in the way. She'll wrap around the crochet hook, my wrist, distract me by wrapping around my ear and flicking her tongue at it...

And one time, Sin crawled into the center of my skein of yarn for a scarf I was making. Apparently, this serpentine darling wanted to bury and so she nedged her way through the layers of yarn and wrapped around it all. Suddenly, I couldnt pull anymore yarn out through it and I peek and see what the problem is and this snake head is poking out from the side of the skien. I check and see that she has managed to tangle herself in it so badly that I had to carefully cut the yarn from around her. That scarf was trashed shortly after, since I had destroyed my yarn in attempt to get at my sweet snakeling!!  Angry

She is very, very lucky I love her!!!

Dante, my Bearded Dragon, will trapise his way through my yarn prjects and the yarn will cling to his spiky fat back and unravel. He also has a thing about sitting on Staplers. I swear he has a weird dragon Fetish for them, or something. When ever he is out and he spots a stapeler (I always have one near me, since I use those more often than pins) he will climb on it and get mad at me if I try to use it. I put an old one that dosent work in his cage once and it was his main 'hang out' spot...

Did I just get all the strange, mentally 'out-to-lunch' animals, or do they jsut get transfomred the moment they step claw (Or scale) into my house?! Roll Eyes

All stories are hilarious...

My german shepherd baby loves paper,thread and bits of fabric. She is 9 mnths old and has spoiled 3 rugs, more paper and what not..

When i'm online lurking thru craftster as usual.... she tries her level best to get moi attention. I dont bother and there she goes to the kitchen and flicks onions, ginger n potatoes from the veggie basket and runs off to the terrace. Now how clever is that?? Smiley

My dog is fascinated by my pincushion.  It's small, looks like a ball, is kind of crunchy, and I obviously want to use it myself.  What's not to like?

So this is my dog Cheese:

He's six months old and yesterday, he grabbed an amigurumi pear in progress off the couch and ran around the house with it.  He frogged half of it.  It's a good thing he's so darn cute.

Our dog, Maddy (she's part black lab, part who-knows-what) loves to eat socks and cat toys, and whatever she can find on the counter and stove in the kitchen.  A dog I had when I was a kid loved to eat Ivory soap...such weird tastes dogs have!

I used to have 2 cats who liked to do strange things.  I also used to work at a knitting store that sold really yummy yarns.  Once I bought some beautiful Lorna's Laces angora yarn to make a hat.  While I was at work, my cats got into it.  My ex-husband sort of salvaged it, by wadding it up further and leaving it on the couch.  When I tried to untangle it, I found 3 ends in it.  heh.
