S**t your Havanese ate

After reading and hearing what other dogs got into and ate (Crayons, Kleenex including box, kitty litter, bananas with peel etc. ) - I though it might be fun and informative to start a new threat on stuff your Havanese ate, how you handled it and how it turned out.

Brooklyn (at 5 months!) grabbed while we ate and watched TV a whole chicken wing from my husbands plate. He ran off and before we could catch him and swallowed it WHOLE! We called our vet and they told us to feed lots of bread and come in the next day if it doesn’t come out. He threw it up (WHOLE) an hour later. We were lucky and don’t leave or eat anything with bones within his reach anymore.

At Thanksgiving two years ago (Brooklyn was 6 months), he stole and ate 5 cinnamon rolls from the coffee table and ate them within 2 minutes while we were in the kitchen getting coffee. Called the vet who said to prepare for diarrhea. Brooklyn was happy and never had diarrhea.

This weekend he stole and ate a whole crepe with apple pie filling from the tray. I was not in the living room (my husband still was!) for 30 seconds and when I left Brooklyn was asleep in the bedroom. I’m still not sure how he did it. We took him for a hike later that day to walk off the calories. He was fine and never showed sign of discomfort.

Now I’m curious, what did your Havanese get into?

Hahaha. Wow. Brooklyn is really good at stealing food! Kipper isn't too aggressive when it comes to taking food. But one time I was eating Whataburger on the couch upstairs and he seemed VERY interested in that. I'd never seen him that excited over food smells ever!

Thankfully Zeke hasn't stolen any people food (we've never given him any and he is busy with his meal in a puzzle when we eat, so I'm not sure he even understands he's missing anything). Socks on the other hand, he'll find those anywhere!! I'm convinced if I have them on the ceiling fan he'd find a way to get to it.

Socks! Yes. I should have mentioned that. Kipper goes NUTS over socks. Like he seems me about to take mine off and he is mesmerized and just waiting to see if I drop them on the floor. Sometimes I do just to give him a treat!

Yeah right! Brooklyn's daddy ate the crepe and then blame it on the Brookster. Mi Popi does that all the time! Momi say, "where did that piece of Baja Lime Pie go?" Popi say, "Ricky must have ate it, but I don't think it s necessary to take him to Vet!" Momi thinks this is happening way too often and now she is getting suspicious .

Another good thing to know (per my vet) is that the danger with cooked chicken bones is that they can scratch or even puncture the esophagus on the way down. Swallowed whole, there was actually much less danger than if he had chewed/splintered it. And once it is in the stomach, the stomach acid is COMPLETELY able to digest cooked chicken bones. They don't see damage to the intestines with chicken bones. It is only the upper end of the gastro tract.

That is too funny, but I actually caught Brooklyn eating the last piece while he was trying to hide under a blanket.

As for socks, Brooklyn loves to carry them around (the smellier the better!)... but my husbands former room mate had a dachshund, who ATE socks and had several emergency surgeries because of that. Neither the dachshund nor the room mate EVER learned their lesson!

When we were at the trial on Sat., I took Kodi out to potty. He pooped, and when I looked at it, I saw this bright red stuff! My first thought was that it was blood. When I picked it up in my ever-present poop bag and looked at it more closely, it was a red terry hair tie!

That was what our vet told us. It was non the less a very scary experience, especially because he was so little. Vet said he would be fine, I still canceled my meetings for the next two days to make sure he was alright.
But we can now laugh at the fact the he ate 5 cinnamon in 2min when we was a puppy, as our first Thanksgiving experience with him. Since then, we leave food strictly on the dining room table or kitchen counter.
