lol yeah from some of the stories I've heard, I think mine might just be an angel... he's still young though so we shall see. He does have his crazy hyper moments, and needs alot of time and attention, but still nothing to warrant a horror story. I just cant figure out why he loves rocks so much - he is almost done teething, big boy teeth are coming in nicely. Lately he's been picking up little rocks and swallowing them before I can get to him!

Be glad it's only rocks...when Tyr was that age it was rocks and broken glass and aluminum cans and rusted nails and barbed wire. I was amazed he made it to a year old without major vet bills.

Be careful! We had some dogs that we had to do surgery on due to being obstructed from eating rocks.

Mine is obsessed with spatulas. Not the rubber kind, but the kind that you flip your food with. If he was just grabbing dirty ones with food on them it would make sense, but he will raid the clean ones, too. He doesn't grab any other utensils, even if they do have food on them. We find spatulas stashed on the landing between the first and second floor, an area he typically sleeps, on a regular basis. Sometimes I step on ones that he drops in the hallway in the middle of the night

Never a dull moment with a Malinois around...

Spatulas...that's hilarious!

I try to stop him / keep him away from the rocks but unfortunately he is great at finding them. There is one area of our yard that we do need to clean up/re soil so hopefully that will get done this weekend and he won't be able to find as many.

What have your Malinois destroyed?

One of Harry's finer moments was when he chewed through the passenger side seatbelt in my car in a matter of seconds. Those are expensive to replace!!!

The other thing is that he had beat up a ton of crates. With the plastic ones, he just grabs the door with his teeth and sucks it inward. He just dismantles the wire ones from the inside. I had to buy this one to keep him contained. So far he's not gotten out, but a few screws have popped out and had to be replaced.

Tyr destroyed several crates - the first one was similar to this, and he just chewed through the side plastic where the holes are.

The next couple of them were more like this one with the metal on the sides. He broke the metal where it clamped onto the crate and pushed it out, then ate the plastic until there was enough of a hole for him to be able to escape.

He's now in this one and it's holding him just fine.

He also has destroyed several of my shirts by jumping on me from behind and grabbing the shirt and ripping a huge hole down them.

And he destroyed two of his teeth - broke one canine tooth on a chain link fence, broke another canine tooth on a pin I was wearing on my hat.

The only thing Nyx destroyed was my charger for my laptop.
