Today, my fiancé got his associate degree in the mail. Wanting to surprise him when he got home, I opened it to display it before going out to buy groceries. His dog got a hold of his degree and shredded it to pieces. FML

I’ve met dogs like that and every single one made this a habit, so the owner knew better than to leave any mail, document, check, or whatnot in their reach.

I won’t say YDI but was this really a surprise? Did this dog really just randomly choose to rip up that one and only document?

When my cat, as a kitten, was teething, she would go out of her way to chew on things, even if they were “out of her reach.” In that time, she chewed up my Ethernet cable under my entertainment center, my DS charger on the middle of a bookshelf (keep in mind, she wants like one pound), and my certificate of acceptance to an honor society, on the top of a bookshelf that I could only reach on a step stool.

I'm guessing they live together, and it's a common occurrence as per a longstanding agreement. I opened my husband's mail for years before we married because he preferred it that way. If I left things unopened he would ask me, "Why didn't you just open it?" So I do.

Don’t get a husky. Notorious paper shredders at any age. My first girl lived until 16 1/2 and was plotting against my sanity until the end.

One thing I have learned from having pets is that, no matter what precautions you put in place (like placing it on the very top of a bookshelf), you fur baby will get it if they want.
