Wow. This is turning out to be something to look forward to in the morning.
The crayons were just regular Crayola; not my dd's precious Stockmar (sp), thankfully!
He's a big 'ol mutt, BTW, about 55 pounds; or big to me, considering my last dog was a beagle.
I should have guessed this dog would do this. He's off the chain, so to speak, with "food." I had him off-leash one time and found him licking the inside of a can that had been pried open with about eight sharp prongs on the lid. His tongue was dripping with blood and he didn't seem to even NOTICE. So I guess he'll survive this. Thanks for the reassurance.
