that's great!!! glad he's OK. I heard about something similar happening a dog swallowed 6 pins the vet charged the owner for the first x-ray but with the owners permission took some more and watched as the pins went through the dog in a neat little row through his digestive system and came out with no problems.

So glad it was a false alarm and that Tucker had not swallowed any pincushion. When we had the house siding redone, we had a couple of close call with nails even though we swiped the yard with a magnet every day and it is not fun.

A couple years ago Andy ate my birthday cake, which had 4" long toothpicks on the "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" letters.

Our vet said give him bread spread with Vaseline, which would coat the toothpicks and help them come out the other end. Worked like a charm.

OMG!!! I don't know whether to laugh or cry when I read threads like this one. We have a pup who eats anything she can get her mouth around fast enough, so this is a good reminder to me about all sewing gear. Who would think that a pin cushion might taste good?! This would never occur to me.

And the recommendations for bread and vaseline just make me laugh. Good to know these things when disaster strikes, but so funny that we know them.

I'm thrilled for you and Tucker that the xrays are clear!

Glad your boy is ok. I know how scary that can be, my girl has ate her fair share of weird/bad things that have landed us at the vets more than once.

Again, so glad everything turned out ok!!

Looking forward to seeing the bandana photos as well. I love putting holiday ones on my guys, it's just so darn cute.

What a day this has been ... We went later than planned to see Santa because I lost so much time taking Tucker to the vet, etc. I felt really bad for him because he gets so anxious there. He was shaking like a leaf in the waiting room.

The bandannas came out well. Ironically, because I didn't have as much time to work on them, I ended up finishing them with safety pins. Thankfully no one got poked! I'm going to finish sewing them so the dogs can wear them Christmas day without pins!

Santa was great. He was a volunteer at the SPCA and did a great job. As I predicted, Bella barked ferociously at Santa, then Tucker and Tess chimed in. Once they settled, we got some good pictures.

I think Bella was excited about her bandanna, oddly enough. She really seemed to like having it on and seemed to like the bell. Very cute.

My daughter has the pictures on her camera, and is on the computer right now playing a game. But I will post some pictures tomorrow.

For the time being, we are all home in one piece, and all exhausted. The dogs have crashed from all the excitement.

P.S. Events like today's with pin cushion is why I bought health insurance for the dogs!,
