holidays and temptation
Eating garbage turns out to be a pretty dangerous practice. Some of the dogs I met over the holiday had eaten more then the bird so to say. Moldy cheese, coffee grounds, spoiled meat.... you name it! When their owners went off to work that morning they were fine, not so when they got home. Vomiting, diarrhea, seizures! Seizures are soooo scary. The dogs were put on intravenous fluids (pumped right into their bodies through a needle into their veins) and anti-seizure medications to try and control the violent shaking and rolling their bodies were doing. I really thought they were going to die but my dad said they should pull through it as long as we could stop the seizures and keep them nourished. He was right and they are all home with their families, hopefully not eating garbage.
Get that shopping done pilgrims, 19 days to the big guy comes down your chimney! Remember, West Lebanon Feed and Supply has all the things in the world I could ever dream of for Christmas.....hint, hint....
Tata for now!
