We normally don't feed our dog table scraps, but the girls have given him some, I mean a lot. So a few hours later, we were given a gift back from the dog.

Please be careful how much of the rich food you give your animals, they aren't used to it..

That's how my dog Rusty lets me know if my FIL has cheated and fed him something he shouldn't of.

Yep, they will eat almost anything. One of our dogs ralphed up one of my wife's socks last night at about 2 am. That solves a mystery. A pair of socks was missing but one was hurled up a couple of days ago.

My first marriage we had 2 Pomeranians.  My little one Duncan was well behaved and is my best buddy.  I got him in the divorce.  He lives with my mom and dad now, as he has eplipsy and can't take little girl charging around the house on a sugar rush all day.  It gets to him and he goes and hides. 

 

Bandit however was a black and white little monster.  Well not really a monster, he was a great dog, his biggest problem was he was way to smart for his own good.  He would get bored.  When he got bored things went wrong.

 

We couldn't give him those rubber chew toys.  He would shred them and eat them.  Then poop out multicolored plastic for a few days.

 

He would eat socks, then most of the time pass them.  Half the time they would make it half way out and when he was running around the yard, he would hobble up there and turn around, and I'd have to pull the sock out.  Most of the time they were nearly whole. 

Plastic walmart bags.  I pulled more of those out of him than I can count!  He would eat them whole.

 

My mom has some kind of spaniel.  If you leave the food out, he will eat till he gets sick, and then eat some more!

Thanks for the reminder.

Also, be careful about chicken or turkey bones!

I've been told raw bones are ok but once cooked they get brittle and splinter thus causing risk to the dogs...

That's what I was told by a Vet when our Rottweiler gobbled up a junko that was flying by one day. She just jumped up and grabbed it out of the air swallowing it almost whole. It passed through without any issues.

Yep, we have to watch ours too, not a lot at one time.

We just put up the Christmas tree with tinsel, we should be getting a shiny litter box here soon!
