oh pug!

I feel like this post may be a little TMI, so be warned, but I started this blog to share the shanniagans of pug and it would just be cruel not to share this one with you.

During the first week of October I dropped a washable nursing pad while pumping.  Pug flew across the room and grabbed it.  I told him to drop it, he pretends he doesn't comprehend what I'm saying, he runs off with it, I chase after him, he puts it in his mouth.

Then gulp.

Never in my wildest dreams did I think he would just swallow it nor can I even figure out how he did it so fast.  It was like the time I served lasagna for dinner and before we could sit down to enjoy it he flew onto the table and ate boy's piece in one bite.

So, I attempted to get the pad back.  Wasn't happening.  We waited a few days hoping he'd pass it, but no luck.  We had a stopped up pug on our hands.  Apparently, when you eat a good amount of cotton this will back things up for you.  And the craziest thing was he was back to usual craziness as if nothing had happened.

 Anxiously awaiting the vet to walk in.

I was just sick over it convinced we would loose him so I took him to the vet.  Which was truly the most embarrassing conversation to have when they asked what he swallowed.  They did a good check on him, were baffled he was as energetic as he was, told me a few signs to look out for, robbed me blind with the bill and sent us on our way.  I was on high alert with this dog watching him and when we went out of town for a wedding he stayed with my parents and I was thrilled to get a report back that he was pooping again.

Although we hadn't seen it we figured all was good. 

Fast forward to a month later when boy's out of town and I'm taking a little snooze with Declan on the sofa.  I'm awakened to pug making some crazy noises and look over and see him getting sick on the rug and chewing on some dark object.  I'm like surely that's not the pad.  I jump up put the baby down, see it is the pad and rush to get it when pug gulps it down one more time. I swear this dog is giving me grey hairs.  Thankfully, later he later got sick again and it surfaced once more.  Why does all this stuff seem to go down when the hubby is away.

Yeah so, my dog walked around with a breast pad in his stomach for a month and has lived to tell about it.  
Goodness pug!

So glad he is ok! Dogs are too funny and it is amazing what their tummies can handle... Just yesterday Milo (our pekingese) ate a tiny piece of craft foam because he though it was something better... and tried to eat more thank goodness I was able to stop him one piece he will be fine several probably not as fine :-/
