So. For the most part, Indiana The Underpants-Eating Shih-Tzu has stopped eating underpants. You would have thought he would have learned his lesson after his first surgery. Or even after his second. But alas, Indy was out the day they handed out the dog brains. Or, he was just napping, lazy thing that he is. But, it seems that all he needed was to move to Canada to learn that undergarments are for wearing, not for consumption. For real, you guys. He has been so good. He eats rawhides and dog toys! Imagine! He is just like a normal dog! Well, on occasion we do find him feasting on melty beads, but you know, there’s that whole brain thing.

I couldn’t help but wonder, though, when I saw this

if perhaps he decided to switch from lingerie to footwear.

“What am I looking at, Ali?” You ask. Well, I will tell you.

That right there, my dear readers, is a pile of single socks that have no partners.

So, because my puppy has a RECORD, I have been watching Sir Indiana very carefully. I have been tempting him by leaving him alone with single socks. I have even left socks inside of his crate to see if he’d take the bait. But, no dice. Apparently, socks are not as interesting as Hanky Pankys.

So, while I celebrate that at this very moment every single one of my Tupperware bottoms has a corresponding top, the socks remain a mystery. Unless, of course, we have the Community pen-stealing monkey.

It’s the only explanation.

  1. I’m not sure how it happened, but I see several matches to my “socks who have lost their mates” pile. At least now I know where they’re at! lol!

  2. It was a sparkle pen, right? On Community?

    You need to watch Indy’s poo for glitter.

  3. This sock phenomenon is because as socks are stolen from the dryer by the Sock Monster they are replaced by 5 dry cleaning hangers. Which is why you have hundreds of them in your closet with no explanation.

  4. Zoey has a thing for socks. Maybe she snuck into your house somehow?

  5. We do not have a dog, yet we have a pile as big as yours of pair-less socks. What is with socks anyway??

    Also, the town I grew up in had a bar called Hanky Panky’s. No joke. (And by “a bar”, I mean “the bar” because THERE WAS ONLY ONE BAR.)

  6. Have you ever wondered why, when you see a shoe on the road, there is only one shoe? Where is the other shoe? How the hell did one shoe get there?

  8. Every Maltese we’ve ever had has been a panties eater. Ella is no different. She’ll find a way into my CLOSED closet, maneuver her way into the laundry basket, bypass every other item of clothing and pinpoint the ONE pair of underpants in the whole basket and leave it nice and holey.

  9. I am suddenly VERY pleased that my mother in law buys my husband socks in bulk from the same place. He must have 5 million of the same sock.

  10. Ahahaha! I so relate! We have to get Indiana and Betty White together. Together they would TAKE OVER THE WORLD!
