Why does my dog steal my socks?!?!

I have two dogs from the same litter. They are not yet two years old. The female, Bailey, steals my socks! She has done this since she was a puppy. She would take one and chew it full of holes so we finally gave her a cluster knot of the chewed socks as a toy. But that wasn't enough for her. Now I've noticed that it doesn't matter if the socks are dirty, clean, short, knee length, etc. She must always have a sock with her. Why does she do this? Our other dog could care less about socks. Yet I find them stashed all over the house and everytime I come home what does she bring to greet me? Yes you are right, a sock. And usually not the same one each time.
