My puppy ate the carpet today. Like, a lot. There's no way we're getting our security deposit back now. I wanted to murder her.

But then, I heard her heaving under the couch. I looked under there just in time to see her upchuck. When I went to clean it up, there were SPLINTERS in it.

So I freaked out, found subs for my work, called my husband (who's overseas right now), sobbing about what a horrible mother I am and what if she isn't going to be okay?

I took her to the ER, and she had the nerve to not act sick. She ran around like a monster, and I was POSITIVE that with every jump and skip, she was shredding her stomach further.

But she didn't. She's FINE. Completely fine. $350 worth of fine.

And I'm glad. I didn't mean it! I didn't really want to murder her. But I do wish she hadn't eaten the carpet.

    I'm just seeing all your blogs now! Aww poor puppy! I got a dog, too! Yesterday we picked her up from the vet after being spayed so I'm still trying to figure out her personality, but so far she's a sweetie. You're a good pup mom!

    I'm so glad your puppy is going to be okay but I have to admit that I laughed out loud! It is amazing how resilient they can be, isn't it? And, how much trouble they can get themselves into in such a short amount of time.

    Once, our poor dog Louisa was throwing up water everywhere. So off she went to the vet. Once there she had a miracle recovery and sat down and offered her paw to everyone who noticed her. The vet couldn't find anything wrong with her (and you have to admit you feel kind of stupid) so off we went. We got as far as the next street (she was in the back seat of our car) when she threw up again and so we went back. Turns out she had a urinary track infection!

    Big hugs to you and your "baby"

    How did she manage to eat a lot of carpet? emoticon
    Do you have a crate to keep her in when you can't watch her every move?
    I know when Zak was a pup and going through the 'chewing everything he put in his mouth' stage it was a life and sanity saver.

    Sorry about your security deposit. emoticon
    Glad she's okay.

    Oh, what a day you had! Where in the WORLD did the splinters come from?? I would have done the same in your shoes.
