So. They Ate Godiva.

Recommended Posts

Maybe this should be in Soap Box.

 

One or both of the frickin fracken hounds got into the closet and pulled down some Christmas gifts. The chocolates were wrapped with a lovely red blanket. Blanket is slimy. Chocolate bag is shredded, no evidence of shiny wrappers. It was a mix of milk, dark, and white truffles. Smallish bag -- 15-20 pieces. I was going to mail it today. Vet said to give bread to move things along. Joe has *just* started back on a normal diet.

 

They're going to have Christmas poop.

 

Blankie, at least, is for a dog person. She'll understand the dried slobber.

 

Damn it! I really need some chocolate now.

I feel your pain. Xavi and I ended up at the evet a few weeks ago after he decided to help himself to dark chocolate covered figs. Of course I can find more locally; I bought them at Wegman's.

 

Check out this really great interactive chocolate and dogs chart

oh my...

 

They have good taste in candy at least?? :hehe I hope for an uneventful outcome.

 

FWIW, Lucky snarfed down half a loaf of banana-cranberry bread...in wrapping paper...She usually dosen't do that type of thing but considering her dad put it at nose-level, I couldn't exactly get mad. THe poops were interesting for a day.

Thanks! Your chart basically says they might crap and puke. I covered our bed, as it's the preferred puking location!

Beanie would always run for one of the dog beds if she had to puke. I have vinyl floors to make cleanup easier but no she insisted on puking on the beds. If I pushed her away she'd run right back.

Sorry to hear this, hope it "passes" as uneventfully as possible.

 

I could leave chocolate laying around all over the place in my house and Johnny wouldn't touch the stuff, it is like kryptonite to him :lol

 

He is the first dog I have ever known, let alone owned that didn't like it.

Well I hope Joe's tummy doesn't get upset after this.

 

Um maybe you'd better not go away anywhere,

I don't think you're going to find a sitter for them.

if this makes you feel better a borzoi that my old boyfriend and i rescued ate 3 boxes of wrapped chocolate christmas ornaments-she unwrapped each and everyone that was on our tree! those were the days before people freaked out about dogs eating chocolate.

 

now go out and buy some trader joe's truffles- just as good- but keep them in the fridge. the dogs will find them in the closet!

oh ... sorry about it. I have Riley, the chocolate lover at my house (he likes the 72% cacao covered cocoa beans ... guaranteed stomach pumping).

 

In addition to bread, if its worse than that, consider having a bottle of fresh hydrogen peroxide in the house. A tablespoon or so (delivered with a baby medicine syringe or a turkey baster) will immediately (within 10 min) cause vomiting of the offending chocolate. I then follow up with activated charcoal (food grade, not fishtank) to absorb any residual toxins. This works well if you catch the problem within 3-4 hours of "the event".

 

Sorry about the stinky house, but I'm really glad its nothing worse!!

:lol Oh wow. If it makes you feel any better, Henry did this one year with a box of Ferrero Rochers. He unwrapped and ate every single one- it must've taken HOURS.

Henry is smarter than whichever one of mine did the deed. They ate the wrappers.

 

No problems yet. Brees was really hyper for a bit yesterday. Sugar and caffeine?
