So glad he vomited it out and I hope the other sock doesn't come out one way or another. The things these dogs think are good to eat- ugh! It is a miracle we never had an obstruction incident with Toby, because he is/was a notorious countersurfer. He also enjoys nabbing road kill on walks- I haven't figured out how it is possible for a visually impaired dog to be able to grab the nasty creatures on a lead and clamp down his jaws before I can react. He also has bouts of colitis, digestive enzyme deficiencies and IBD. In 2010, during our Barkley's cancer fight and some major repairs/construction to our home due to a water leak the workers left some trash out back (grrrr) and Toby nabbed it before I could pick it up- and a few days later I had my cancer dog in for chemo and Toby in for evaluation for a possible obstruction. They did the barium series and found nothing but what a nightmare. He's nabbed some other things off the counter including hubby's Nestle Quik and a Peanut Butter jar, a cannister of oatmeal, and my cell phone! The latest involved grabbing a K cup from the Keurig machine, plus a maggie moo creamer. Obviously this dog was telling us he wants more PB and oatmeal cookies with chocolate drink or coffee and cream so he can munch on my cell phone!
Your experience is my reminder to go pull everything off our counters again- Yogi is not yet able to reach them, but it's only a matter of weeks!
