What if dogs destroy shoes because that’s the last thing we put on before leaving

But it's also the first thing i put on before taking her for a walk.

Maybe, but I think it's a smell thing. They have more of your smell on them than most things. I've known a dog who ate the armpits out of my friend's shirt, and there's another who's dog will eat the crotch out of her panties when she's gone.

Just shows how much they hate us leaving.

Soooo... like a fetish?

Slightly related, but I think my dog feels anxious whenever she sees me packing a suitcase.

Maybe it's all in my head.

She absolutely does. Dogs know when you're leaving. My dog knows I'm leaving if I'm putting on shoes or putting keys in my pocket and you can instantly see the worried look on his face of "are you leaving me?"

i sacrifice these walks in the name of mum

Oh so when a dog does it, it's a smell thing but when I do those things I'm "disgusting" and "must leave immediately". I'll never understand dog people.

Or maybe it's because they had a ruff day?

Nice try OP, this has already been posted. Where’s the Karma Police?

What's a situation where they know you're coming back? Any?

Or maybe to conceal the pack and thus protect it.... like why they eat their own shit

My dog gets in my suitcase to try and stop me from packing.
