Rocker Sheryl Crow is considering leaving new pet Labrador behind when she tours this year (06), because she fears the pooch will devour her designer shoe collection.

The singer worries she'll have to take to the stage barefooted if her new dog REX joins her on tour.

It's a big dilemma for Crow - because her late Labrador always accompanied her when she toured.

She says, "I used to bring my yellow Labrador with me, but he passed away... He went on tour and every tour bus.

"(But) Rex is prone to eat anything, so I don't know if he's going to make this tour. I have too many nice shoes."
