Just because I want to have a little fun...

What's the weirdest thing your dog has ever eaten?

Oh man, where to begin? Half a chocolate cake. A third of a bag of mini Cadbury eggs. Leaves (I still don't get that one... she's steered clear of non-food items ever since). Remnants of a steak. She stole a kid's sandwich once, right out of his hand (one of those I-am-never-getting-another-guide-dog-ever-again moments). A whole bag of apples... Can you tell that she's a thief?Very early on, she found a compact flash card that I'd accidentally dropped and chewed that into submission (luckily didn't swallow any of it). Probably tons more that I've been unaware of.

Uh, I don't have a dog but when I was a kid mine ate crayons :)

Meg did that recently. It was quite gross!

On the gross side: a used tampon which my old neighbors had thrown into my yard (yeah they were sick people).

On the not-gross side: my brand-new bra. D:

Let's see... I used to have a dog that loved broccoli. He's also find gum and eat it, pack and all.

I know you didn't ask about cats, but I used to have a cat who loved cheese. She'd hear the cheese drawer open and she would chase whomever opened it! I also used to roll up pieces of bread and throw them at her, she'd bat them around before eating them. She also loved Angel Food cake, and climber on top of the refrigerator and knocked the container off. Luckily it was plastic, but it did pop open, so she ate it all!

Nixon tried to have a liking for lettuce, same as Bronze, and immediately spit it out...

Bronze is the one who has the nasty food fetish... he ate:

8 pounds of chocolate
ate through the passenger seat, foam and all

These two incidents occured when I wasn't around, I was across Canada--medical issues required me to leave Bronze home to allow time for my shoulders to heal.

what else? A purple rag, which was eaten whole, but a few hours later, the contents all came right back up... dunno where Hobo got that rag and brought it home, which Bronze took an interest to.

Bronze used to chew through leashes, but that has dissipated, so am assuming it was due to stress..

Nixon hasn't eaten anything since he immediately responds to "leave it". Although, he did eat a few coffee beans one time in a garbage can. Luckily, he is pretty good at it. He needs gentle reminders, since Bronze has passed the trait along... I so not want that! LOL!

Great topic!

Not very long after I got him, I was leaving the college campis senter after lunch and thought out loud to my friend "wow he's bein' almost too good right now."

She and I laughed it off until I heard him smack his lips, the friend started to laugh, because someone had opened a peece of heard candy, but it flew out of the rapper and onto the florr. Seems my dog found it and was actually sucking on it! LOL

Only interesting thing with J Clerk Maxwell Puppadawg is what he wouldn't eat.

Ordinarily, he's your basic 100-pound Shop-Vac, sucking up pretty much anything.

A coupe years ago I had a sore throat and a ferocious cough. My husband brought me Fisherman's Friend --- great for cough/cold, but holy cats, it tastes disgusting!

One lozenge fell on the floor, and Clerkie snagged it.

And spat it out.

And ate it again.

You could almost see the thought process. "But, it's Food!" "But it's nasty!"

After rinsing and repeating several times, he got the Fisherman's Friend down, but he hasn't even come near it since.

Now that oughta become something people give for punishment.

Fun topic
Ok, this sounds like fun.

Ginny's puppy raisers told me that she once ate some of the trailmix you buy at the store right out of those little bins.

Ginny has also once chewed up but as mentioned previously, did not swallow, a compact flash card.

TV remotes can't be left near her if she is left alone.

Our old family dog, who's name was "girl" used to eat all kinds of stuff. I know chocolate is bad for dogs but girl ate it all the time and lived to be 18.

The one thing girl would not eat was vegetables.

No vegetables at all for that dog.

Whole garlic cloves. *sigh*

My mini Schnauzer used to *love* bananas! Seriously, you would have to say "easy" to him when you gave him one, or your fingers were of threat too! :)

He used to do all sorts of tiricks for them, too, ones he probably wouldn't have done for anything else. He.

Can't remember what the dogs ate, because that was a long time ago. But the strangest thing any of my cats ever ate were three Jiffy cornbread muffins ... off the table when our backs were turned.

I've been lucky with my guides, but Snickers...oh dear...
a pair of kneehigh nylons, a hair scrunchy, a bottle cap, a package of beeds, a ceramic teddybear, a carton of a 24 pack of mountain dew...mountain dew cans proceeded to chase him across the house, a toy plastic pig, did that one just to spite me, because he didn't think I should have left him home, a package of gum, a wrapper from a package of cheddar cheese, came out in a huge rock the next day, salt and pepper packets from a restaurant, about 20 of them, had to spend the night in the emergency vet office. I think that's the highlights.
He was given a lot of hydrogen peroxide as a pup...and I'm sure I'm forgetting many of his snacks. sigh.

Hm...interesting question. I have a black lab, thus he's eaten some pretty interesting stuff.

Most interesting thing of mine he's eaten though was the loaf of homemade bread I brought home from college. He grabbed it out of my backpack, and I think he ate part of the plastic bag it was in.

Panty hose. I guess she pulled them out of the laundry, but yes, she ate an entire pair. We didn't know it until they were trying to, um, "come out" later. My mom had to give her hand out in the yard. :P

I remember another time when one of our dogs ate half of a lemon cake and my friend Beth and I got blamed for it. My mom said she could've sworn it looked like someone had dug into the cake with forks. I was so mad at that dog. :p

Hey there!
Hey! How are you, and how'd you get off my list? *beats LJ up* I keep discovering these burps and wondering why I am not seeing people's posts...
Apr. 18th, 2008 05:22 pm (UTC)
Re: Hey there!
Hi! I'm well - how're you? :) I noticed I wasn't on your friends list anymore, but I didn't want to bug you about it. LJ seems to have an evil motive lately.

Did you survive the earthquake this morning? It literally shook me awake into a panic. I thought it was related to those darn "sonic booms" that have been happening lately from the F-16s, but I was most definitely wrong!

I actually haven't been posting a lot lately. I really need to get back into the habit. Thanks for re-adding me, though. I missed reading your frequent entries. :)

3 $100 bills.

You can imagine the befuddlement when the waist showed itself to be this green fluff pellet type consistency…

Yani: A paper towel. Which is not weird in and of itself, except that she ate it the evening before I went to the Supreme Court. She wouldn't go #2 that morning, and I kept freaking out, thinking she was going to go in Justice Breyer's chamber. But she didn't. Finally, the paper towel was spotted protruding very slightly from...you know where.

Glaze: A whole tin of generic altoids. She took off the plastic, opened the box, and ate every last one of them with no ill effect.
Apr. 18th, 2008 05:50 pm (UTC)
Also, Glaze ate some unpopped popcorn once. It came out looking just the same as it had before. Glad she didn't get overheated or anything while that was in there. LOL!

Here's what she's eaten. The side of the house, turns out there was for lack of a better description a sewer rat living in the wal. That also killed one of my birds, we blamed the big shepherd for it. He wouldn't have eaten her, but he's the type what was that? snap! Vel ate just last summer, a nice two inch chunk of corn cob, whole! Needless to say charcoal, peroxide, and no food for awhile, plus also having the barium to figure what the hell she'd eaten made for unhappy feeling Lab girl. Oh and also a big cube of beef fat. As for cats, mine ripped open my dad's I forget what cake it was. Someone had the ingenius idea to frost the cake into two huge breasts, and well the cat ate half of one. I think that's all she's eaten, for the love of all that is good, don't do anything else at convention, please?

Whew! I don't feel so bad!

Let's see...

Thomas, my first guide, who had a horrendous food fetish - donuts (he was a running joke for that one, the donut dog in more ways than one), pizza, chicken strips, cookies, ham, chocolate, a chicken wing bone (scared the heck out of me and then some, but survived it with no ill effects), peanut butter thingies that made him sick for a week and gave him a yeast infection and ear trouble (I tried to make the Seeing Eye recipe I found someone had posted someplace, and well um ... my dog was a peanut butter freak, and he ate the whole bag of what was left at three in the morning).
That's the highlights, but I'm sure there was lots lots more. Oh yeah. Dirty underwear. Ugh.

Toby, my now-current guide, is not quite the terror that poor Thomas pup was, but lately he's become quite the thief. Since I've had him... foam windscreens off external mikes I still have and still, miraculously, work. Cookies, chocolate, jerky. Catbox delight. Ugh... I've tried everything, and he still loves the stinking catbox! Recently, as in last week, my hearing aids were on my desk. LIttle tall dog reached up and snagged them (I guess cuz they smell like my ears and well... shrugs). I found them on the floor. Thank God he didn't actually ingest anything bigger than the little bitty battery cover for the left one, but both aids now have chew marks. On one, I thought he got the tubing punctured through. Can you believe they still work?
Oh, and the other morning, I was standing with him outside after he'd just peed. He reached down, and I heard, even with my moderate hearing loss, "snap!" Or should I say, "Rip!" He snagged a tulip off the stalk and, I'm assuming, ate it. Now why would a dog like flowers... I'm watching him because of his tulip fetish. *sighs, my poor flowers*.

I can't believe some of the dogs I've read about here have survived. Truly, these guys should be called scavengers, not omni- or carnivores...
Apr. 27th, 2008 03:02 am (UTC)
Wow! The things some of these dogs have eaten! Imma, my first dog, ate a cheese biscuit, chocolate, pizza crusts, and grapes,. She actually loved them! Bailey, my second dog, never really ate anything weird. Whew! I'm glad of that one! LOL!

Ok, last time I tried posting this LJ ate it and my computer rebooted itself... Let's try again...

I should probably answer this thread since I started it. Welcome aboard... Friend me if you like. My journal can get a bit roller-coaster-ish. If you don't mind reading about life in graduate school while juggling a few chronic medical conditions, etc, please come on in and have some coffee and muffins.

The weirdest thing Dori ever ate....
Perhaps you know this already...but Dori eats her poop. That is not, however the weirdest thing she has ever eaten...she ate a whole left over turkey carcass...and then threw up for 3 days! That was our first Thanksgiving together...
