This thread has me laughing out loud tonight. I'm sorry for the task you have ahead, but there are some great ideas here for minimizing the unsavoriness of the process.

I scooped several piles of doo from other dogs today, maybe I should dig around a bit and see if there were any unclaimed treasures on my lawn?

I hope the process is quick and productive.

Does Bentley know how to trade? Wakefield's a scavenger, even at 2, and I'm so glad that he'll willingly trade. I don't keep dog treats with me in the house, but the mention of a trade will usually distract him from swallowing something until I get the treat. Good luck with the poop - the plastic bag sounds like the most palatable way to find it.

Tip to make it less gross? Nosepins! ha-ha.

I'm feeling better already about the mango that Maddie swiped off the kitchen counter tonight.

Yes he knows how to trade but he ran off almost before my mind could register what happened then I yelled..... probably when he swallowed it
I didn't handle it very well but to be fair that ring is like eating a new car, i wasn't thinking straight.

Bentley, Bentley, Bentley, Bentley...what are they to do with you.....

I not laughing...promise....oh hell yes I am...I'm sorry this happened but I can't stop...

No ideas to help make this less messy .I had one of my dogs eat an earing, she passed it, I did the deed and then soaked it for days...I couldn't get past the ick factor until I think something like 10 days..

Keep us posted...

I think I'd take the ring to the jeweler for a good cleaning!

Sorry Bentley swallowed your ring. I hope you recover it soon. Nothing like being on poop patrol!!

I was scrubbing the tub so I put my ring in the dish. When I finished I went to put it back on and it slipped out of my wet hands. Bentley dived for it and took off running.
When I got to him no ring in sight. I should have immediately put him in a sit/stay but I wasn't thinking and was busy yelling nooooooooooooooooooo
He doesn't act like it's bothering him in anyway. He wants more food and I'm going to give it to him, hoping more food will speed things up.
When I saw the X-ray I could have strangled him then he put his head on my chest and I melted. He has me wrapped!
Years from now you will remember this, tell this story and laugh...I know it doesn't feel that way now

I am sure Bentley will be just fine. Hang in there and happy "digging" :hug:
