I was a terror as a wee one; my parents had to wear leather work gloves to play with me because my teeth were so sharp. However, I never chewed up a shoe or dug in the yard; I might have gnawed our wooden porch just a little but nothing that needed replacing.  As any Scottie, I felt a need to protect and defend my territory which according to Mom was extreme and resulted in destroying four chairs and two ottomans. I still suffer from territorial issues so there are times I am dismissed from duty. ~ IndyIndiana @ 11 weeks
