We were warned that the Golden Retriever we were considering as our new pet liked to "counter surf". Since we have had the new pooch he has done some anxiety tasks such as eating Sandy's garden shoes, my wallet, door draft pillow and a carpet. We wondered what else he might be doing as he gets used to his new home We've looked for signs of the reported "counter surfing" but we have not seen any real proof.  We asked Big Boy, but he denied the accusation by just giving us a blank look as if he did not understand English.  We are hoping you can help us determine if we have something to be concerned with.
