Thanks for your reply. He's looking ok, and it's about 2 hours later. We've always had to watch him around food and garbage cans.....DH was cleaning up dinner, and poof!, our sneaky little guy ate a bay leaf out of the top of the garbage can. It surely smelled like the turkey breast and butter I made DH for dinner, so I'm sure that was the attraction more than the bay leaf.
Always happy to "meet" other Shiba lovers! Our male is going to be 10 yo this year, and our female is going to be 8. They are our first kids, that's for sure. Although, I'm seriously thinking that a non-shedding dog is where we're going the next time around. Where does all the hair come from?!?
