Did I say that Rita is only a good dog when she’s sleeping? And, since she snores almost louder than Vince does, I’m probably pushing it to even say she’s a good dog when she’s sleeping.
You know that we don’t go out very often . . rarely! One night this week we went to eat at a friend’s house. We left here about 5:15 and got home I guess about 9:30. Here’s what I think happened:
One of us didn’t shut the laundry room door. We have floor to ceiling shelves in there and on the second shelf, there’s a bag of dental biscuits for dogs. They each get one per day. It’s a proven fact that Rita can climb/jump to get as high as she needs to go for food. It’s another proven fact that Speck will eat til he makes himself sick, and then he will eat some more.
So . . Vince and I got home. He went to close up the coops and I came in to take the dogs out. I saw that Speck had thrown up and Rita had a dental biscuit in her mouth. That was weird but I let her have it. Speck has tummy issues so throwing up isn’t out of the ordinary for him . . til I saw how much he had thrown up. OMG! He must have had his weight in dental biscuits.
He was sick all night and it was about 3 p.m. today before he would even look at food.
My guess is Rita realized the laundry room door was ajar and managed to get the bag down and then Speck wouldn’t let her have any so he ate his fill of them.
I am so thankful for wood floors with no carpet because between these two dogs, I’m afraid I would have the nastiest carpet in town.
Now we have to make sure the bedroom doors are closed, make sure the pantry door is closed, make sure the laundry room door is closed . . leave the back door open and hope they both run away! 🙂
