    Zoe can chase flies out on the deck for hours if we let her. She rarely if ever catches one, but she will try endlessly and seems to LOVE it! Does your dog do anything like that?

    Romeo is obsessed with socks and underwear.. I try to keep them away but he enjoys tracks them down.
    Even if they are clean, he loves how my underwear can fling across the room like a slingshot kind of thing if he stretches them correctly lol

    Gunnar is completely ball obsessed. Any ball. The first thing he does when we go outside is finds a ball and he'll carry it around the whole time we're out there. Saturday I was fixing the door knob on the back door, he's laying there with this nasty slimy jolly ball, shoving it at me as I worked.

    Prey. Any tree that he maybe saw a squirrel in once upon a time. That one corner where he saw a kitty sunbathing.

    Tucker's majorly obsessed with this purple platypus toy. He has to have it in order to go to bed. He constantly carries it around with him.

    Bella is the only one with an obsession... it is balls of any kind.

    It gets annoying sometimes but I am not too concerned because she isnt aggressive about it... if for instance a dog takes it away at the dog park, she will just follow them around hoping they drop it, LOL.

    Boomer is the only one that obsesses over something, and that's anything that squeaks. Especially this little rubber mouse that was meant to be a cat toy. I buy them by the box, 20 of them, and it lasts him a little while. I just ordered some last week since wed is his day at the vets office for some blood work (for his cushings). He always goes in with his de-srtesser.

    reflections, flies, squirrels, bunnies, sticks, balls...anything that is moving basically.

    He is super ADD though, so its easy to transfer his attention from one thing to another...well, except for reflections & small animals...he is pretty hooked on those...nothing else is interesting to him when one of those is present. Its just ridiculous.

    Toker is obsessed with squirrels. I actually think she got one yesterday, but I'm not sure. (she ran after something on our hike, then was crunching something in her mouth and part of it was sticking out of her mouth. But I couldn't make out at all, what it was) Ewwwww.

    Jose` is obsessed with food and also with eating Chuli's poo. Ewwwww.

    Chulita is an almost obsessive licker. It's her default setting. I can stop her with "enough kisses" but I haven't been able to really "cure" her from this habit. She even licks the couch cushion till it is quite wet. Ewwwww.

    My dogs are all quite gross.

    Daisy = food.

    Benji, not really. Well, I guess he can get a little obcessive if we see a bunny or deer on a walk or something, but once its out of sight, he forgets about it.

    Phoebe, nope.......nothing comes to mind. She USED to be obsessed with chewing anything and everything, she grew out of that though thankfully :)

    Orson is obsessed with stuffies that squeak. If a stuffie has a squeaker in it, he can't rest until it's dead :eek: Seriously!

    Tyr is obsessive about licking and sniffing ~ his is really an OCD issue.

    Nyx is obsessive about chasing anything that moves - human, animal, toy.
