13 Adorably Destructive Dogs Who Are “Sorry Not Sorry”

By Colleen Williams
September 26, 2015 • 1 min. read

You need to make a quick run to the store. “Goodbye,” you tell your dogs. “Be good, I’ll be back soon!” When you return – gone less than 15 minutes – the house is in utter chaos. Some pups go straight for the garbage can, while others prefer pillows, paper towels or even panties. If you’re not a fan of crate training your dog, household destruction is a definite possibility.

Mischievous mutts may initially show regret for their deviant acts, but in the end, no one is immune to the infamous puppy dog eyes.

1. “Going to wait and see which one pee pees on my floor, turns my hamper over, or takes the soap out of the tub and puts it at the front door because I left them home.”
