My Dog ate my Stimulus check…

Jazzy says "hai"

…actually, this morning she ate an ant bait spike that I had put out last night under the peonies (the ones she didn’t eat yet – did I mention she ATE one of my peonies earlier this spring? No? Sorry about that…). After my first run to Agway today, I came home to see her trotting around with a green spiky thing in her mouth. I called the vet and he said to bring her in. Great.

When I called later in the day to make sure she pulled through the stomach pumping so I could kill her, the vet said that she vomited up assorted sticks, twigs, grass, bits of plastic (!) and…ant poison. He also said it was a good thing I brought her in when I did…blah blah blah. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very happy she’s okay (upstairs sleeping with Dobby as I type this, even though at this point I’d rather lock her in her crate for the rest of her natural life) and I’m glad I brought her to the vet. I’d be HAPPIER if she weren’t a walking garbage disposal whose sole purpose in life appears to be to eat everything in her path. I’d be HAPPIER if she hadn’t eaten the damned thing in the first place.

I’d be freaking ecstatic if the cost of the emergency vet visit and stomach pumping wasn’t the exact same amount as the *bleeping* stimulus check that just happened to arrive in the mail today.

*sigh*

  1. I’m so glad that the pooch is okay. I swear that there is a universal law that targets people whenever things are going smoothly or extra money is expected.

  2. Yeah — Kira has done something like that before. Ate my medication. It is veryyy expensive going to the Vet for an emergency. Shockingly so.

    Good thing the dog is so darn cute!

    And now I have 2 embarassing questions: 1) what is GSD? 2) what is a stimulus check?

  3. Good thing she’s cute, yes? We don’t get to do anything fun with ours either. And what’s more annoying yet, we were scheduled to get it a couple weeks ago and it hasn’t shown up yet, probably because we didn’t mail our taxes until April 11.

  4. Awww! That bites! I am just pleased that your dog is doing better. What gets into them? I swear dogs have an uncanny ability to get into messes that cost a s***load of money. Speedy recovery to Dobby!

    Ouch! That hurts! Put a cone on her head and she won’t be able to eat a thing :-) My younger lab thinks my raised veggie beds (particularly the dirt) is for him to eat. Need to put bird netting around to keep him and his sister out.

  6. Shit! Naughty (but really cute)dog. I’ve been thinking about buying pet health insurance. Not sure if I’m going to do it yet. Still in the info gatherin gstage.

    I’m so glad to hear Jazz is ok. We have one of those “oral” dogs to. He has gone to the vet twice to have something removed because it was stuck in his intestines. The first time it was a 1 lb fishing weight. The second time it was a bread tie. I told my husband that I know why our dog is called a golden retriever. He has cost us his weight in gold.

  8. I’m glad the pooch is ok. Um, she’s wickedly cute so that has to count for something. Of course I have a soft spot for Dobes and mine cost me a lot at the vet too.

  9. That’s the cutest doggie! Aren’t you glad that check came right on time!? Seems everyone I’ve talked to about those checks has had some sort of tradgedy or other right about the time they arrived…hmmmm, kismet? Have a great day!
