Not a digestive story, but prior to having a destination wedding, we let our two little white dogs out for one more time before leaving on our trip. Bart came back in the house looking like Groucho Marx, with a big black moustache. Took me a minute to realize he had in his mouth a very dead mole, obviously to be our wedding present!

One of our cockers would also carefully capture live toads in his mouth, and gently let them loose in the house. He foamed at the mouth a bit, not quite getting that toads can be poisonous to dogs.

Beagle recently deposited what looked like a dead leaf on the carpet, standing over it proudly. Dead hummingbird. Thankfully it was previously dead. I reminded her that beagles are rabbit hunters, not bird dogs.

Oh I'm soooo thankful Murray hasn't brought home any dead things to express his love. That's a cat job in our house. He brings me his toys whenever I come home though.

We have "outside" toys and "inside" toys. I'm reasonably certain one of the inside toys he used to love made it outside and got buried. There is a suspicious pile of dirt behind the lilac bush. *sigh* Oops.

Albeit blurry. Hard to get him to stand still long enough for a webcam shot!

The cats here have oodles of toys of all kinds. I can never find any of the furry mice I buy for them...until we come back from being gone overnight. They all show up on the bed. There were 25 mice on the bed when we got back from Oregon.

neither of my doxies were prone to dead things just little fellows they could tease and let go in the house nowthe DArn cat loves to deposit mice and dead rabbits, gophers on the doorstep smile at us and walk away. If we ignor her she will replay with it till all is over if not well it stays til someone gets a shovel.

I think it's a sacrifice of favorite toys to Bast for the safe return of their hoomins...or for thumbs so they can open canned food.

He's very cute! When one of the dogs here has that problem it is no food for 24 hours, then plain rice, then maybe add in some cooked sweet potato or canned pumpkin, then after 2 or 3 days I start to slowly add back regular food.
