And yup, someone in our family has been diagnosed with it. That person would be Tiberius, our 3 year old red bloodhound. It started innocently- he would grab tissues out of the trash or out of the Kleenex box but it has now turned into a full blown problem.
You can't even leave him by himself anymore...unless he is sleeping. He pretty much eats anything that is paper. Newspaper, magazines, books, and even has taken a liking to Berry's stack of C of C psych tests.
I have done a bit of reading on it and it apparently is because he is either 1) bored or 2) wants attention. Well sorry i cannot provide attention to him during the 10 hours of the day that he is awake (he really does sleep about 14 hrs a day) but seriously! So demanding! If he ever gets a hold of my magazines or cookbooks, he is going to be dead!!!
The initial paper trail.....
