My wife left a loaf of cinnamon-raisin bread on a chair for a sec when she got home from shopping this morning at 9 am. Andy grabbed the bag and ate the whole thing. His belly was so full. We called his regular vet and internist who said not to let him exercise or eat again today, but otherwise he'd be OK.

SweetGirl:

I'll try the pill pockets again. Thanks

Whoa, lol, Andy still keeps you on your toes.
I am glad he is okay, though. Naughty, naughty Andy, don't let Santa Paws hear what you did.

Ha ha. Santa chuckled when he saw the empty bag. Like Inspector Renault in Casablanca, I said "round up the usual suspects". The clues quickly led to only one suspect: the 'two paw' technique used to hold the bag open while he chomps, the quickness, the look of satisfaction on his face. Slam dunk. We had our man!

Andy was skin and bones when I adopted him. 15 pound underweight. And that was a couple weeks after the rescue pulled him from the small town kill shelter. Consequently, I blame the occasional "five finger discount" snacking on his survival instinct and his first years of not having enough to eat. An issue that 10 years of never having to miss a meal hasn't ameliorated.

Even though we try to be careful not to leave groceries in reach, sometimes my wife forgets or has to run for the phone in her office. His 'food radar' is so good I'm surprised there isn't a huge nose dish on top of his head LOL

Thanks, Anne. He doesn't seem to have any bad effects from eating it. Both vets said not to feed him or exercise him yesterday. We wouldn't normally have been concerned, but with his GI tract finally seeming to get back to normal we were worried for a time until it became clear he was A-OK and looking for more food.

Andy doesn't make a 'score' very often, so he's probably laying on his bed right now reliving the glorious moments when that loaf of cinnamon bread appeared like manna from Heaven Aw. After the bouts of nausea and dramatic weight loss this past year I guess if we had to have a problem, at least it concerned him eating rather than not eating.

That's so funny of Andy stealing the loaf even when goldens are naughty you only have to look at their sweet faces and puppy dog eyes and they can get away with absolutely anything haha!

Glad that he's okay though and the vet said he'd be fine

This was funny! And in light of the times you had to worry about him "not eating", it puts it in perpective. And since there were no sharp bones involved - at least that was good.

We live with an opportunist too. It's not too often but we have to be extra careful about putting bread away. It's Chance's favorite.

With all the cinnamon he had I swear I heard him humming Christmas songs.
