Polka, yeah the really great thing is that she's figured out that if she eats poo we give her cookies when she comes in to get rid of the horrible poo breath! Especially when I was pregnant cause the smell would make me puke.

Well, it's not something I've physically pulled out of the dog, but since it happened yesterday, I'll mention it. :P

I was sitting in the backyard while my 2 year old played, until she ran up to me with something in her hand, saying "Mommy, it's an ewww sockie." I took it from her, and sure enough, upon close inspection, I determined it was one of her missing socks. It must have been outside all winter. And I couldn't figure out how it got out there.

We were still outside when DH came home from work. He came in the backyard and I showed him the sock, and asked if he knew how it ended up in the backyard. And he tells me "I sure do, I caught Chloe eating socks in the laundry room a few months ago." It took me a few minutes to figure out how it got from her stomache to the yard. And then I dropped the thing faster than, well, a feces covered sock.

Ahhhh, those were the days...

What a way to get busted.

Used tampons, and various bits of plastic. She also eats her own vomit.

Irish, most of them will eat their own puke--but.....I've always heard it referred to as "refeeding" in animals, but when Molly was sick with her virus, I took her in to this doctor at a walkin clinic and as I'm listing her symptoms, constant vomitting, etc, etc. I guess I said she'll eat again after she throws up, the doctor than repeated back the symptoms to make sure she had everything and said "but she will eagerly refeed?" The look on my face must have been pretty good cause she asked me if I needed to sit down! Anyway, we cleared that up, now she knows that for animal people the term "refeed" has fairly negative mental pics associated with it. :LOL

How many of these dogs are beagles or hounds???

Our beagle eats fabric stuff, mostly: baby socks, my underwear, toddler underwear, breast pads, newborn hat, flannel diaper wipes, washcloths, drool bibs...

and her own poop and our mutt's poop are daily snacks

but a poop-covered, barfed-up fabric item is irresistable, apparently.

It was a peach pit that nearly killed her. Had to have it surgically removed.

Damn dog.

Our Carolina dog has a thing for yellow paint...

She would find a way to knock the can over to get more paint. (happened twice) so she was pooping and puking yellow. The neighbors yard had lovely polka dots in the green.

THe only think I have ever had to pull out was hair of course. I have really long hair and I love it when they are running around the yard with a turd dangling from behind and you ahve to pull the hair AND the next turd out.

THe JOYS of owning animals.

One day this woman comes in with a lab that had eaten something and it was there to be scoped as we could often get things out that would otherwise need major surgery.
Al, our internist and I start working on this dog, we're watching the screen while he advances the camera and we see what looks like underwear. Well, we pull out these pretty little panties and a bra. The owner was waiting in our waiting room as she'd come from a ways away.
So, we pull them out and Al says to me "uh oh", I'm like "what, it looks like we got everything?" he says go out front and look at the owner--these are not her underwear!

You know the string that goes around roasts you buy at the butcher shop?

He found it in the garbage. The next day, I notice this little "thing" hanging out down there. I made my husband do it, though. When we were done, we called the vet and he told us to never pull anything out of a dog's butt; it could be wrapped around something inside the dog!

Oh, well. He's ok now!

Cat:

My cats will swallow just about anything. One day I was cleaning the litter box and saw this bright orange thing in the poo. Well, upon closer inspection it turned out to be one of those long skinny balloons you use to make balloon animals. BLECH!

When I was pregnant one of my cats had worms and they had started to "shed." Thank god my mom was there because a huge octopus like mass of intestinal worms came out (with a little help from my mom with a paper towel) and I went upstairs and puked. :Puke

Old Roommate's Dog:

He was throwing up and wasn't able to poop so she took him to the vet. They x-rayed him and he had a bone and a rock in his stomach. I guess he thought if he ate the rock it would break up the bone a little?

Ducks and chickens:

We used to raise ducks and chickens and it never failed that one of them would swallow the end of the string that turned the heat lamp on and off. It only took a time or two of that to change the kind of heat lamp we used. You couldn't pull it out of their mouths, so you just had to cut it off and hope for the best. I think the two that did it lived, but their poop contained this foot long string with a knot at the end of it. :LOL

You get to see all sorts of gross and entertaining things when you grow up on a farm. We had pigs and goats for years and they eat EVERYTHING. If I think of any more stories I'll post.
