Cats and raccoons. Those are the only two animals that I can't call him off of. Maybe bears, but I haven't had enough bear encounters to know for sure on that one.
Oh, and writing utensils. Neither pen nor pencil is safe from the jaws of my Shiba.

Kleenex are another as is the rolls from the middle of the loo paper. He will stalk people to get that one! Ever tried explaining to a guest why the dog is stalking them? Non dog people in particular!?

When it comes to food, I should just list what I can trust her with . . ..laugh out loud

Grapes, thankfully--we were in a bar the other day and she kept picking something up and playing with it and spitting it out . . . someone had dropped a grape (toy, not food in her book)! laugh out loud

Random cat poop on walks? let's just say, i have to be vigilant--so gross!naughty

Cats he chases them I don't know what he would do if he caught one but I can call him off.

Small furry things except my rabbit mostly because he's scared of Leo.

That's about it really he doesn't steal food that often, he figures looking pathetic will get him some
