In the three weeks since I have had Izzy, she has illegally obtained and eaten every substance poisenous, harmful and dangerous to dogs. Actually she was recovering from Kennel Cough during her first week home and was the model doggie, a perfect angel. So in just two weeks she has:
1 Torn open the garbage, spread it all over the kitchen, and eaten chicken bones. She did not feel well the next day but made a full recovery.
2 Found a wrapped bar of dark chocolate in a basket next to my chair, unwrapped it and ate it. No ill effect.
3 Opened a can of mixed nuts and ate them. A large, heavy cardboard can with a plastic lid, like a coffee can. Chew chew chew marks all around the edge of the top, plastic lid laying next to the can.
4 Got an empty cookie box with a foil pouch out of the garbage, ate some of the foil. Garbage is now in a can with a locking lid. Very unhappy dog, could not eat dinner, did not eat breakfast next day. Decided to take dog to vet after work if not better.
5 Dog feeling better, ate dinner, snatched the cats' ham wrapped thyroid medicine out of my hand as I was giving it to the cat and ate it. Peanuts in poop.
6 Plastic bag from pepperoni and plastic container of ham slices found on the floor. What the ??? Did she open the refridgerator? More nuts in poop.
7 Opened cabinet door, pulled out can of cocoa, tore the lid off, carried it into the diningroom to enjoy at her leisure and spill all over. Not satisfied, carried a pouch of cornmeal muffin mix into the dinningroom and tore open. At least she knows what a dinningroom is for!
I have a feeling this is not over!
