Sorry he's not feeling well but glad to hear he "coughed" it up. Hopefully he feels better soon.

On a side note, I seriously look forward to a thread from you everyday, it's like a daily episode with Bentley lol

It is everyday! I seriously need a break. Raising 3 girls and a son was SO much easier!

The things these pups eat amaze me! Dish towels, socks, panties, sticks! Even if we are quick enough to rescue the item, it is no longer useful! Chewed to shreds or big holes!!
Eewweeee! Gross! Glad the 'Bentmeister' is okay!

Look at the bright side, at least you don't have to come up with the ideas like a real show

Thank goodness he brought it up! Hope the little fart feels much better tomorrow!

Heres the part I just don't get about these eatin' dogs...
There is no way in the world swallowing a sock- a dry, cotton-ie, long piece of fabric is enjoyable going down. Probably sticks at bit, doncha think?!
Why do they actually swallow? Why not just mouth and chew?

Well at least you now know that it isn't always the washing machine which swallows up the missing socks! Poor baby. I hope he is back to his usual bouncy self now. Loki had a little puke yesterday evening .....mainly dirt! I haven't ever caught him with socks or other clothing items, but we are forever fishing stones out of his mouth when he's playing in the garden.

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!

Joyce: I love what DG said above. Praying that the other sock comes out safely.
We have a hamper that has a lid on it for that reason and everything must be put in there immediately. Tucker is a counter surfer, too, Dallas Gold, and everything is pushed way back on our kitchen counter, or if I go out for awhile, the kitchen door, bedrooms and bathrooms, are all closed, as Tucker has grabbed a raw potato, a bar of soap, and a hair brush before! He will also carry the phone and the remote into the living room. Now I put those away, too!

You are sooooo lucky. I wish Tayla could have vomited her rock up and saved me $2,000. I watch her every second outside now. She is also a sock/undersare girl, but she has gotten to the point that if she grabs them all you have to do is say out and she will drop it. They are little stinkers.
