So Dale has a sock fetish. If there is a loose sock in his vicinity he will put it in his mouth. Ok, he'll even lick the socks if theyre on your feet (mostly hub's - clean or dirty he doesnt care). Problem is once he gets a sock in his mouth and he sees that you caught him, he first looks at you like "you dont see this sock in my mouth" and/or "I swear, i didnt put it there!". Then as I tell him to drop it (which he hasnt quite gotten yet but knows "leave it" so I use that mostly) - he starts the game of "you cant catch me". He's a quick little guy when he wants to be and can go on with his little game all day if you let him (which I dont). Question is - how do I get him to leave the sock without the chase game?!??!??! ???
And yes, the easy solution would be for people to put their socks in the hamper instead of leaving them in every room... but thats a whole other thread!
