When this sneaky dachshund supplemented her diet recently instead of sleeping in my office, she wreaked havoc. She ate the rear end out of a pair of men’s pajama pants, the rear end out of some men’s boxer shorts, the important bits out of two pairs of women’s underwear, and the rear end out of a pair of women’s blue jeans. She nicked four out of the five items from places other than the floor.
