my kelpie mix has had skin issues since day 1 and finally a good vet prescribed fish oil and that has done the trick along with better food

When my mother in law was pretty deep into dimentia we could never get her to eat. I brought a bag of Krispy Kreme chocolate doughnuts home thinking she might eat a few and the caloroes would help her. I don't know if y'all have seen those but they are sugar and fat nuclear bombs.

The whole bag was gone that night. We thought great and bought another the next day. Same thing third day. Then I got a little suspiscious because that is a LOT of sugar and chocolate. Then I noticed my Golden looking at the bag then looking at his dish and then at me. Uh oh.

I don't think she ate a single doughnut herself. I figured my first Golden survived a gator mauling and several poisonous snake bites so that one could survive a pound or so of chocolate.

Reminds me of the time mine ate through a stick and a half of butter, before I got the "what the hell is he up to?" impulse.

My wife's beagle got into a pound of chocolate one Christmas. He was way sick from that and destroyed the house with puking everywhere.

Looks like the beagle I had as a kid. We all but quit feeding her but she just kept getting fatter and fatter. I finally saw her waddling through the park behind our house following well worn path. The dog went to a little general store that still had a butcher shop back then. The butcher was feeding scraps to her. It turned out he had been doing it for months. The dog used to follow us to school then walk back home past there. I guess she stumbled on that gold mine along the way.

We need a stupid shit your dog ate thread. Wait, the stupid shit comes after what they ate.

Nothing like noticing the purple leg from a stuffed animal or half a green tennis ball (as on our Christmas trip) in the

Yeah, I've seen bit s of dg toys in my dog's poo before. Those fuzzy bright colors of pieces of tennis balls or stuffed animals will catch your eye!

I have a friend whose dogs would eat anything. They sent one in for surgery once, to get some rocks out of her stomach. They ate bottle caps, rocks, etc.

When my son was a baby, a diaper went missing one evening while my wife and friend were sitting on the back porch. We worried for a few days that one of the dogs ate it. It never did turn up. It probably would have killed them, or clogged them up.

I feed my dog PMI Exclusive when she's not raiding the garden. Two years ago, I had 40 tomato plants. I did not pick one ripe tomato because she'd get them before I could. Then she discovered corn...

One of mine ate an entire chocolate bunny one Easter. Started acting really weird. Vet was closed, so I looked it up. Apparently chocolate has a similar effect on dogs that alcohol has on humans. Dying from "chocolate poisoning" is the exact same as dying of alcohol poisoning.

Anyways, my dog was drunk. The next few hours, we had a good laugh as she stumbled into doorways, tripped (and face-planted) out of her dog door, and puked a few times. Poor dog.
