Your posts bring back many memories. We adopted Mali at 11 months and I told a few people her name is short for malevolent.
She taught Oscar to bark at anything going by the front window, got onto the garbage, chewed up some newly purchased clothes, and wrecked a couch.

While decorating for our first Christmas with her, I took out a bag of Christmas themed dog toys. I needed to run an errand, so I put the bag of toys in a bedroom and blocked the doorway with a baby gate. When I returned, the toys were all over the living room, the bag was still in the bedroom, and the baby gate was still in place. Oh, what I would pay to have video of Mali jumping back and forth over the baby gate to get all the toys into the living room!
