My dog, who never steals anything from us, stole my Diva cup bag with my Diva cup inside and ate the whole thing. I almost cried :(

Did s/he actually EAT it? You may want to take them to the vet, because they might get blocked up from eating the silicon.

she mostly destroyed/chewed it and only ate a little part of it, I got worried and was watching her stool and she "pooped it".

ugh... that really sucks. I could totally see something like that happening to me; I have four dogs.
I hope you can get another one soon, and that puppy keeps his jaws off of it :D

The day my first Diva cup arrived in the mail I left it on the coffee table in the little bag and one of my cats chewed through the bag and bit off the tip. I was so mad!!!! Thankfully I was going to cut the tip off anyway, but I was livid!! She didn't swallow but gave it a good chew.

My dog had expensive tastes (literally!) when I first brought her home. My hamper is actually a pile in the corner, and she would dig out the most comfortable and expensive pairs I had to chew the crotch out. I even did an experiment after it happened a second time: expensive, comfy pair at the way bottom of the pile, much cheaper, less comfy, less cute pair right on top.

Guess which one I had to throw out.

I LOVE your icon.

Feel free to take it!

hehehe. That's why I keep mine in a drawer where my pup can't get into it.

I could see my dog doing that if she got her snout on it. She routinely raids the hamper for my underwear and stashes it in the couch for people to find.

Re: awww
yes. Not only that, but she makes it clear who else we encounter is on their period.

Re: awww
Definitely experienced this. I don't have a dog of my own, but my boyfriend's pooch is determined to keep his snout in my crotch every time I'm around and on my period. It's funny to me. Haha.

To the OP, sorry about your cup! That sucks big time!

Next time, put some high shelves up in your bathroom and put it on there.

I don't want to be all snarky, but where the heck do you put it to have your dog get hold of it?

Also, I echo the first commenter and suggest that if your dog actually swallowed the silicone then it should see a vet pretty quick.

Btw, if the dog didn't swallow it and just had it in it's mouth, you can boil the cup to disinfect it and keep it. Obv don't if it's seriously mangled or something :-D

it was up on the counter....usually i really don't worry about anything because this is the first thing she has ever chewed on. To give an example, i think me and my boyfriend together own 100 pairs of shoes...never touched anything. But I learned my lesson now ;)

I won't even bother dispensing "Next time do this" advice, because this is a lesson very easily learned!

I will say, though, that you are not alone. Although it's never happened to me, pretty much the only time I hear about a cup meeting an early end are when 1. its forgotten about when boiling on the stove so long that all the water boils away (you have to throw the pot AND the cup away at that point) or 2. Fluffy gets a hold of it.

:-( Sorry for you loss! Just think about how long you DID get to use it... think of how much money you saved and how much is NOT in a landfill because of your fallen cup.

that happened to an old roommate of mine... her dog took it out of her backpack and tore it up...
Luckily, we carried them at the co-op in town... but yeah.. it was crazy.
