I’ve got no kissing photos and dealing with a puppy and a 9 year old dog that wants nothing to do with him and the hubby is out of town, I am spent. The puppy decided to eat a shoelace today, the vet was called and wanted to induce vomiting. Not having the necessary antidote (being a pharmacist you’d think I’d be well stocked) I took him to the vet. Besides, who wants to clean that mess up. They took him in the back and a few minutes later I could hear them exclaiming -“here it comes”! and “there is some more”! They brought the shoelace with a few other items in a plastic bag to show me what came out followed with a lecture. A leaf, grass, carrots, and chicken with a little skin were the other contents in the baggie. I knew about all of the above, the leaf and grass followed the shoelace. He was retching and I got him outside only to have the retching stop but the grass and leaf eating commence. The carrots were for the teething and the chicken was in the kong to keep him busy. The skin was the big no no as it is fatty and can cause pancreatitis in dogs. He came out all bouncy and acting like it was no big deal with everyone oohing and awing about his cuteness and how mellow he is. Enough about the day and let me introduce you to Blazer. At approximately 5 months old he is a beagle mix. He and his sister were abandoned in the woods in Arkansas when they were about 2 months old. We have had him for 1 month and he is a joy. When he wags his tail, his whole body wags too! He is also a terrific cuddler and is eager to learn.
