After yesterdays Parvo scare, I threatened to start this thread! Well, here it is.

Cooper digs up rocks and chews on them. Junebugs are a favorite. And for some reason she loves the brick on the corner of the house!

One of my Malinois ate an entire shoulder holster and harness. It resulted in a fairly substantial vet bill.

Squeakers. That's why Artie doesn't get toys with squeakers in them anymore. Silly monkey.

I can laugh about it now but I wasn't laughing when he threw up 13 times in a two-hour span, nor after seeing the ensuing vet bill. Luckily, he passed it and surgery wasn't required.

LOL...I knew you were going to start this thread.

I've been lucky, nothing strange in years, despite having some very, ummmm, active and oral/destructive dogs.
About 15 years ago a previous Rottweiler apparently ate at least 4' of Christmas tinsel, the kind that comes in fuzzy ropes. I had no clue until I saw him straining and looking uncomfortable in the back yard. I went out and saw that he had some tinsel coming out of his butt.

I pulled verrry slowly...and pulled....and pulled....and pulled.....

About 4 feet ended up coming outta there, and he was so happy he did a happy dance and zoomies!

Gator ate a rock last year and had to have surgery...make sure you pup only has OK stuff to chew on, otherwise you'll be spending ALOT of time at the vet.

Rocks, sticks, flowers... pretty much anything she can grab before I make her drop it.

Labrador: entire tube socks---the long kind.

Beagle Basset: our pet parakeet---one gulp.

My childhood pet constantly ate crayons. Her poop was always very colorful.

Cooper caught 2 birds in one day in my backyard. I have 4 parakeets inside (caged)...guess I need to worry??

My two parakeets were caged too. I guess the dog knocked over the cage. The cage popped slightly off the base. One of the birds got out. The other didn't. Hubby came home to find the dog with the bird alive in his mouth. He was just gently carrying it around in his mouth. But the urgency hubby went rushing towards him caused him to gulp his find down in one quick swallow. It was hard to accept that the love of my life is a murder, but I got over it. The remaining parakeet didn't get over it though. He was terrified of the dog after that. Of course he would be, the dog ate his life partner!
