Oh what a night…

So everything was going along normal last night. Jess ran 3.55 miles on the treadmill at the Y. I cleaned out my car. We went out to Mi Cocina for some Mexican food. I gave Jess the Chicken Little DVD for the heck of it. Then we get home. We see an empty bag. Jess informed me that said bag had contained chocolate. 13oz of small Hershey’s milk chocolate eggs individually wrapped in pastel colored foil. Didn’t see any chocolate or foil. We look at Popeye and he doesn’t look too good. Uh oh, chocolate is poisonous to dogs. We got home at 10 to 7 and the vet closes at 7. We call them and they are concerned. They tell us to give him 3 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide and see if he pukes. If not repeat in 10 minutes. Trying to give a feisty Boston Terrier 3 tablespoons and have him ingest it is a challenge in itself. It took a good half hour before we got enough in him to make him spew. He finally had enough and the fun began. Pretty soon we had liquid chocolate with foil bits all over our kitchen floor. But it was for the best. He puked a lot for the next half hour and then we were good. He chilled out the rest of the night and still puked a bit this morning but all in all he looks pretty good. It’s amazing how much weight he lost, we don’t have a scale but he went from blimp like to skinny in an hour…crazy! I guess it was just a little forced bulimia on our part…


  • Wow, that really makes me wish I had a dog. At least the nasty brown stuff that comes out of our "pet" is almost always controlled by a toxic waste containment device.

  • Poor popeye. At least you didn't have to take him into the vet again.

  • Our dog Riley likes to eat rocks.
    We've had to do the hydrogen peroxide thing too!!! Next time, hopefully no time soon, use a turkey baster and just stick it in their mouths and plunge away to get the peroxide in. Worked great because there's not much they can do about it.
