OMGoodness. My hound got a hold of a large amount of saran wrap when he stole the leftover meatloaf from the kitchen counter. From the amount that was left, I figured it was about 8" long at the least, and a normal sized width for saran wrap. Called the emergency vet and they said to just give him bland bulky food, like bread, mashed potatoes, etc., to help bind it together so he passes it.

Every day when he was doing his business, I'd check the results. Nothing. I started wondering if it snuck out inside one of his turds. I started worrying it was inside him forever. Tonight hubby said it came out. Not on it's own though. The hound walked the entire perimeter of the yard trying to get it out. Hubby said about 2 inches were showing. He pulled and almost 12 more inches came out. He left it in the yard for me to inspect. (Anyone who has dogs can appreciate that I'm sure.) It was just wound up in a big long plastic tube.

Anyways, when hubby came inside to make the announcement, the hound was literally jumping in the air throughout the living room---doing the snoopy happy dance. I haven't seen him so excited in MONTHS.

The things these dogs eat. It's amazing they survive themselves.

Oh yes, always fun when you have to "assist" a dog with pooping something out.. Sounds like yours was very grateful for the help though! Glad that's safely out of his system, and interesting to know exactly how long it took from ingestion to elimination!

Good work, hubby!

My hubby (or I) would have left it out for inspection (show & tell) also.

👍😜😎 ROFL!!!

Too funny because I probably would have done the same thing.

Hopes, I am so glad that your hound is okay and very happy to be free of Saran Wrap. I bet he'd do it again for more meatloaf!

No doubt! We will have many more poop watches in the future.

I would have been upset if my husband didn't share! Glad the saran wrap had a safe journey.

I am laughing out loud for real here! And so glad the outcome, as it were, didn't involve expensive vet visits and misery for the poor dog.

Many years ago one of my Rottweilers, who had a penchant for eating anything that wouldn't eat him first, apparently ate a long string of that bristly, tufted Christmas tinsel. I saw him out in the back yard looking a bit distressed about pooping so I went out to see what was up. Long story short, I ended up pulling several feet of tinsel out of his rear end. It was horrifying, but he did the same happy snoopy dance (LOL) and all was right in his world again.

That's absolutely hilarious! How do they survive what they do? We'd probably die if we ate 3' of tinsel!
