My grandmother fed her toy poodle chicken bones all the time.... He was 18 when he died lol
Anyway ....have you all heard of giving dogs peroxide to make them vomit? I had never heard that before.... Even more bizarre to me is that my neighbors vet gave Lucy peroxide and then put morphine drops in her eyes to start the vomiting ASAP ? Anyone know why or how exactly that works?
Not sure how things are going right now! He's been burping up since I got home from work today, he also vomited twice. His poop is still normal and I had seen pieces of bone or whatever in it so everything is still moving through. There's been no blood but he drank a lot of water a couple minutes before throwing up.
I found the barf on the floor after work, it was super slimy, and then he just did it again after drinking so it was pretty much all water and some kibble... Should I feed him some rice tonight to help with his tummy, or could this be something related to the bones somehow?
I forgot to mention! Other than the random burping and the 2 barfs, he's acting totally normal, he's playing and running around, not looking or acting sick or anything
YAY! Just had the most amazing experience ever!
Took Sawyer to the fair grounds where we ran into a man and his lab. He quickly bent down and attached a leash once he saw us, and Sawyer didn't run up to the dog. After I got closer he did though, and the man was like "He's just a puppy" and I said ya, he's just an idiot (he was trying to play and bouncing around like his crazy self) So I walked by and called him and he came. The man said Well he sure listens a lot better than mine!
I've never heard Sawyer complimented for his listening skills by another person, I was so excited! It was a great feeling being like, he wishes his dog was like mine in this sense. Oh man he's made such progress!
Until we ran into the next dog; a German shepherd who after a couple minutes of playing, he began to hump. The other owners didn't see it though so it doesn't count...

Another fantastic trip to the fair grounds! He kept picking up sticks for me to throw, chasing after them and not bringing them back... He's not too great at a complete retrieve
At the end of the walk another person drove up with their two dogs. Sawyer thought it was fantastic, 2 more friends to play with and ran right up to them in play mode. They weren't too impressed and did their "leave me alone" thing. The sort of bite, growl that doesn't hurt, but it certainly letting him know he's being inappropriate.
I was so thankful for that. No one got hurt and finally a dog puts him in his place. The lady was soo apologetic but I was completely fine with it.
The first time he was ever attacked it terrified him and he couldn't go near dogs for a whole year I think, this time he didn't run away in fear, he just slowed down and tried greeting them a little better. Just need a few more situations like that and he might learn how to act proper around dogs
Our town is FINALLY doing a petition for an off leash dog park. I don't agree with it for certain people, but I think for the majority of the people interested in it, it would benefit us. I'm curious though... anyone who has been to one, would I even be able to bring Sawyer? He doesn't know how to play right. He does what he thinks is playful biting, and other dogs just get annoyed at him. He enjoys humping random dogs- what happens in these situations? How could I get him used to being around other dogs, without causing any risk to the others? I don't want to be the person who when I walk up, everyone else rolls their eyes and takes their dog home because he's just annoying everyone
I was so proud of my boy yesterday!
We were on our walk at the fair grounds where he can run off-leash, and he kept looking around. I didn't notice anything but finally decided to see what he was looking at. I look up and about 50 feet away are 2 big moose! I froze, and was like oh crap what is Sawyer going to do?? I started walking faster, and just kept calling him and he left them alone! He kept staring at them probably thinking "what funny looking horses" but he didn't freak out or go up to them or anything!
It totally could have ended badly! (Incase you don't know, moose are significantly more dangerous than bears)
