Bad girl! How dare you eat Mount Vesuvius!


Chatting whilst standing at the rear of the Land Rover yesterday, we began to wonder why Dolly was cowering in the gloom of the back with a sheepish expression on her face. Then our eyes focussed on the torn-open wrapper of 14 dog-chews. 12 of them were missing...

Dolly went to bed without supper last night, having eaten best part of a volcano mixed in with a vat of mechanically reclaimed, animal by-products. These chews contain pumice which help to clean the tartar off dog's teeth.

I wonder how the volcano manifested itself today.

  3. Jack sicked up some sock elastic this morning which didn't QUITE make it out, necessitating pulling whilst audibly expressing my revulsion. Why do we allow these monsters into our houses?

    1. One volcano? I usually leave most on the side of the plate, then feed it to the dogs.

  6. The good news is she didn't eat the wrappers, too. I guess that should be good dog, she didn't eat the wrappers, too.

    1. Well, she didn't eat all 14, so if she had she could be given credit for leaving the wrapper. As it is....
