Sweet Little Hell Beast
My little dude and I spend most of our time together, but while I was traveling, I was away from Vista for over a week! Insanity! She kept busy at my parents' house, though, mostly by eating. Here is a list of things she ate (that we know about anyways):
1 lb of Halloween candy
1 loaf of zucchini bread
1 chicken breast
1 bag of yogurt-covered raisins
1 dried apricot (abandoned the rest, presumably not to her taste)
1 stick of butter
1 package of graham crackers (taken out of the ceramic, lidded cookie jar)
Untold amount of dog treats (also removed from a closed jar)
From this we learned that height is no object (she leaped on and walked all over the kitchen counters and a large desk), and neither are things with lids. She has yet to figure out cabinets, however, or any other kind of door. You haven't beaten me yet, dog!
For those who are concerned, I am well aware of the types of foods which are poisonous to dogs, when to call poison control, and even what to do should I need to make whatever she ate, erm, reappear. She's got a cast iron stomach though, I think. Only the candy put her off her food, and nothing made her sick.
After I returned from Denver, my father confided in me that my mom was concerned that, having finally rid themselves of my brother's dog, they'd end up with mine. Haha! I wouldn't do that to you, Mom. I wouldn't do that to my worst enemy.
