That Little....!!!

I guess this is my new life, {I forgot} having to keep my closet door shut. In this case, I can't just take my running shoes off right when I get home and leave them by the front door anymore or else this will happen. I see puppy classes in our near future. Biggs just needs to finish up on his puppy shots so he can get in. Any tips or tricks to keep a dog from chewing up shoes, besides the obvious?
