    :-X

    First, his cousin Riley rolled in it. Twice.

    Henery ran over to investigate this wonderful thing that Riley was smearing all over himself. Then Henery decided it would make a tasty treat and down the hatch it went. Crunch crunch crunch. :-X

    WHY??

    I think I'm gonna :-X!!

    Mouth wash for Henery and avoid the doggie smooches for a while.

    Well guess he won't need any extra protein for a few days.

    Ugh, I still feel queasy thinking about it!! The image of a squirrel tail dangling out of his mouth while hearing squirrel bones crunching is not about to leave my mind anytime soon.

    You know what I worry about?? Worms and maggots! Ugh. :-X Thank god it's not hot here yet.

    It should pass okay, do you think??

    Karon, as soon as we got home, I got out his toothbrush and toothpaste and went to town.

    :-X :-\
    Sophie killed one of the mice that have been driving me nuts this year... hopefully the rest of them will take a hint and move on (they seem to be trap savvy). She nicely laid it on the sofa and waited for me to notice.. didn't have a mark on poor mousie, so she's a 'tidy' killer at least...

    Good catch, Soph!! She just wanted to show you her prize.

    Henery caught one last year, outside, as it raced across the sidewalk. In a flash he had it in his mouth and I heard it squeak rather indignantly. I think the sound startled him (don't know why it would, sounds like all his squeaky toys!), he dropped it, and it scurried off. I have no doubt he would have tried to down that too if he hadn't let go of it.

    PS. Have you tried peanut butter on crackers in your traps?

    Eww!! :-X

    It is funny how dogs can be selective with what dead critters they choose to eat. For example, if my dogs found a dead rabbit it would be down the hatch quicker than I could say 'leave it!!'. But if they find a dead bird or squirrel they will only roll in it.

    Be careful....Ivy ate a rabbit that Teddy killed and it gave her tapeworm.

    If it's any consolation, Twinkle caught and ate a mouse a few months ago with no ill effects.

    Ohhhh great.

    One more thing to worry about with him... worms!

    Will I know right away? What should I watch for? Should I be taking him in to the vet at all??
