    DefaultI hope a lesson was learned here!

    This morning after sleeping 8 1/2 hours (bless his little canine heart) Bailey got up and went outside. When he came back in, he lay down on his cushion and started to make that 'I'm about to hurl' noise which I'd never heard him make before. What came up wasn't food, but a sock. An entire, undamaged sock. It was one of Joe's school ones which he must have either not taken care of, or the dog pulled it out of the laundry pile in the short span between it going from the box to the machine, or from the folding table to the dresser. I have NO idea how he managed to swallow it whole without choking himself, but he has been eating fine and everything else has been normal. I'm just SO glad he hacked it up rather than it getting caught in his digestive track! Just in case it was Joe leaving things laying around, I reminded him that he's GOT to keep things where they belong and help pick up. I figure he must have gotten hold of it last night while I was in the bath, because that is the only time he hasn't been with me the last couple days. He stayed with Joe, who was watching Mulan in the lounge. *sighs* Oh well, it turned out alright and I have a feeling its just the beginning of many things Bailey will do to make me go

    Definitely. Turns out it was Joe not taking care of his socks. He stuffed them into his shoes because he didn't want to get up and put them in the laundry, and Bailey took the liberty of unstuffing one for him. The scary part was that the pup was acting completely normal, so there was no hint at all until he brought it up. I reckon that between them, I'm going to go prematurely grey. :

    Oh wow! I'm glad he's ok...I learned early on that Tal likes my socks so I always make sure they are either in the hamper or up high way out of reach!
