I gave my wife's dog the bone out of my t-bone. I guess he eat it without chewing it up enough. When I took him out the following evening to poop. He must have passed a big piece of bone. He was yelping while taking a poop. No blood or anything but geeze poor guy... Needs to learn to chew up bones better.
Thanks. It wasn’t meant to be a chronical of hip dysplasia but that is what it has morphed into. Maybe our experience can help someone else facing this problem. Or even better yet, be extremely careful in purchasing a puppy.
same here! i'm hoping for many more years of interesting stories. i think he's already shown he's a character of the notable sort.
plus it is often those who are challenged which have to figure out how to do things in smarter ways to get by while everyone else can just skate along and not notice. i consider each of them kindred spirits. we do what we can, we may be crafty, if you pay attention you might learn something, etc.
We had our grand daughters for the past week. One morning it was raining, I realized that my corn, drying on the stalk for cornmeal, was getting wet, so I ran out and picked all of it. I sat on the porch, stripping the husks back and tying them in bunches. The 3 year old came out on the porch to play. Sentry was hanging out on the porch, enjoying chewing on a bone.
Here came the 3 year old and she grabbed Sentry's bone. He didn't want to give it up and bit down on it. Now this is a food aggressive dog with the other dogs and he will run Carson off his food. We have to monitor them at meal times. So I was watching, coiled like a watch spring, ready to come down on him with all the fury of a protective Mamaw. She continued to pull and tug on the bone, finally wrenching it out of his mouth. He wrinkled up his face, ears up, like he was saying, "That's MY bone!" Not a growl, not a snap of teeth, no aggression whatsoever. Then she started running back and forth the length of the porch with his bone. He followed, with that wrinkled face that is so darn cute, making no effort to reclaim his bone. She finally offered his bone back and he gently took it from her fingers. I was proud of him.
