Actually, we have lots of dull moments around here, but I sure don't write about all of them. Just some of them. Hopefully some of this won't be too dull.
Saturday was actually really fun. Brian was on call and had to be at the hospital all day. I had a couple of friends come over for scrapbooking. I really needed an excuse to sit down with my stuff for our adoption profile. Unfortunately, I didn't accomplish nearly as much as my friends did. I only finished the very first page! Yes, it took me about 3 hours to type up a paragraph for the first page. I thought that only kids could write that slow! However, yesterday I did finish typing up the entire rest of the narrative for our profile. I'll just cut it all up and put different parts on different pages mixed in with our pictures. Now it doesn't seem nearly as overwhelming because I have the most difficult part done.
On other news our belovedly bad beagle basically behaved badly. Last night a raw chicken thigh bone (with bits of flesh attached) fell onto the floor. Before we could blink Molly has snatched it up and sucked it down her gullet. There was no getting it back. I tried. We tried. And since we don't know how to do the Heimlich maneuver on a beagle there it remains. I called the emergency vet and they said that a raw chicken bone is pliable enough that it may pass. However, until it does we need to watch closely for signs of a bowel obstruction. So that is how I've spent my day. Watching the dog poop and then examining her handiwork. And there's no sign of a chicken bone yet.
Fortunately I'm feeling much better. Unfortunately my sniffer is working much better. And that is not such a good thing considering how I have spent my day. And how I will be spending my time until a raw chicken bone is discovered in the backyard.
So what inappropriate things have your dogs eaten?
