Keep your stock because you will make a fortune. You would not believe what he unearthed this morning on a walk and yes, we are on poopy and tummy watch now. My little visually impaired guy unearthed, in a pile of dead leaves in the dark, a tamale! It gives new meaning to the term street food. Yes, we've already had a shiny gray mucousy poop that freaked me out and yes, we've already been to the vet and he is now getting reacquainted with Flagyl. I suspected he had an ear infection so I had her look at his ears as well and he was diagnosed with a mild bacterial infection in the ears. So now we are practicing our new favorite activity that involves me chasing Toby to clean and dose his ears, much like a calf roping event at a rodeo. Guess what? Ear cleaner is also a very good floor tile cleaner.

Just seeing your post today. What GREAT news!! Glad he no longer needs eye drops. Then I get to page 3 and read about his tamale episode. Now I am laughing so hard that you have to chase him for ear drops!! Toby, you always are such a source of excitement!!!

Toby is sort of in heaven. He's getting 4 feedings for the next few days of canned food, his favorite (). I'm sure when we transition back to normal kibble and normal feeding routines I'm going to hear his protests.

He slept in this morning- very unusual. So the first thing I did was check his gums. Pink! I took him outside but didn't get a poop so we got our walking gear on and I made sure to prepare several baggies for scooping and I took a water bottle to hose down, just in case it was bad. I was getting worried because nothing was happening until a few houses from our back driveway and he squatted. I'm happy to report it was totally scoopable, no water hosedown needed, only one baggie needed, normal color, but still shiny from mucous. I realize we have a few more days of watchful waiting to make sure we aren't dealing with pancreatitis or a major colitis episode, but right now he seems OK. Me, I'm not so okay. I'm ready to go down and discuss the trash conditions with the contractor of the house being renovated where Toby found his treasured tamale. Our area of town is in a major renovation boom and I need to be aware that workers aren't always so careful about using those big trash bins on site, but instead litter on our streets and sidewalks. If I continue to see items strewn about I'll probably contact 311 and report it. We have 4 of those big trash container bins on three blocks on my street alone and it looks like another one is about to be renovated as well. It's going to be a long haul keeping Toby safe from himself during the next few months.

Yes, never a dull moment- there are moments of sheer bliss, ala getting cleared from surgical recovery, followed by moment's of absolute panic, ala the Big Tamale Escapade... BMF, a bit of advice-- the name Toby seems to inspire dogs with that moniker to be a little over the top and mischievous- steer clear of that name for your new boy! I think Barb will agree with me.
