I can't win! What was supposed to be a productive night turned into an absolutely unproductive evening thanks to a certain individual.
Remember yesterday's adventure with the poison ivy? If not, you can read about it here. Well, I can now top that story. Our bulldog puppy, Rooney, thought it would be a genius idea to eat the poison ivy. Yes ladies and gentlemen, my dog ate poison ivy that had Round Up sprayed on it and didn't see anything wrong with this! Stupid dog!
I immediately freaked out and rightfully so! I jumped on the computer and called my friend who used to be a vet tech at our vet's office until she moved away. Between the two of us we found that poison ivy is on the dog's list of toxic plants if ingested. After this piece of info I knew what I had to do and it wasn't pleasant or pretty.
There I was sitting on our deck shooting syringe's full of hydrogen peroxide down Rooney's throat to induce vomiting. All I had was a 3mL syringe so it took a LOT (they recommend to use a turkey baster so that you can get it all down in attempt but I couldn't find our turkey baster). It took three rounds of this process before I was satisfied that everything was out of his stomach. Afterwards I had the pleasure of spraying down the deck and giving Rooney a bath.
The worst part about the entire situation was the sheer look of terror in poor Rooney's eyes when I would try to get the hydrogen peroxide down his throat. I broke down several times and just sat there and cried because I felt so awful but I knew that I was doing what had to be done. Luckily, dogs forgive quickly. By the time I gave him a bath and fed him a slice of bread he was ready to jump into bed and cuddle with me. Only a dog could forgive that quickly!
Needless to say, nothing was accomplished on my to-do list and I didn't sleep last night. Hopefully today is more productive. I told the dogs that last night was strike two and if they got to strike three I would be dropping them off at the pet lodge early....lol.
I did decide last night that I am not going to tie bows around the bubbles. I tied one bow to see how it would look and I wasn't really that impressed with the outcome. Plus, the ribbon is a pain in the butt to tie onto the bubbles. So, I guess I can cross that item off of my list! :-)
Here's to a better day!!! At least it is Thursday! :-) As long as the dogs behave themselves I will be back to wedding related posting tomorrow!
I think his cute little squishy face is to make up for his stupidity! I love him but I was ready to kill him last night once I knew he was going to be alright! Aish!
