Re: Dang dogs.

Oy. And hugs. In that order.

Our 90 pound yellow Lab, Sandy, once ate a plastic 13-gallon trash bag. It came out -- mostly -- in one long mess.

A sock at least makes some sense, it smells like the human associated with it. But a trash bag?

Another reason I love christmas. My cats (well, at least one of those sneaky bastards) eat parts of the fake christmas tree. I then discover miniature christmas trees when I scoop out the cat litter. My cats aren't too smart.

Anyone want two cats? I'll ship to wherever fedex delivers...

I had the dubious job of 'tinsil recycler' until we gave up putting any kind of tinsil on the Christmas Tree. The cat seems happy and I'm exstatic.

heh heh heh

Re: Dang dogs.

I knew something had to be up. My niece stayed with us for a few days. One morning on her bed was the top half of one of her socks, the bottom half missing.
Greg had comments to make on how often my niece does her laundry. We've been waiting around to see which dog.

My daughter's 10 month old Lab didn't poop out the sock she ate. After a bowel resection, 3 days in doggie intensive care and a $2,800 vet bill, she's fine.

That happened to my sister's lab with a peach pit.

It isn't very often that I laugh out loud when I read this forum, but hey, that's pretty darn funny!

Guess your dog needs a Lamaze class.

I'll put this on my list of things to remember when I start to have the urge to take a dog home from the shelter.

Re: Dang dogs.

About 12 years ago a pit bull mix - with a great dane? Large/tall older puppy showed up at our house - we had our fill of dogs(3) and kids(2) and were going to find a home/take him to the pound. A close friend came over for dinner and fell in love w/ "Jake". He took the dog home - his first responsibility being single etc.
Jake ate all of my friends belts and managed to pass the buckels(ugh) - he also ate all the wires/tubes between the air conditioner and the house - several hoses and who knows what else......Jake finally grew up and stopped the carnage
I was impressed that my buddy kept the dog thru all these behaviors....

It was good practice for his future marriage!

Thank God for crate training. Thought it was cruel at first, but turned out to be the perfect strategy for our last two dogs. They even learn to love it -- seek refuge in their crates voluntarily long after training is complete. Sophie was 3 years old before we finally got rid of the crate.
