Wednesdays Child is full of Woe

I would say “Happy Wednesday!” but I’m not saying it today!
It was not a happy day to start, I should have stayed in bed!
Although if you take into consideration that I woke up I guess maybe it was a happy day after all depending on who you talk to 😀 😀

Bentley had a sleepover last night, he and I love sleepovers!
You can read about Bentley baby here ,here, here and here!!  😀 😀
I had made some chocolate mounds/haystacks last night and the girls and I ate a few, there were about 15-20 of them left separated by wax paper.

I put them in a Tupperware container with the lid on and left them on the counter.. 😦
He is not quite 1 yet, still a puppy for another 2+ years!
He had thrown up this morning and was very dopey, even during the car ride to work.
I had only been at work about an hour and kept checking on him, calling his name, checking his breathing. I called the vet and she suggested bringing him in to check his vitals.

It was strongly advised to “hospitalize” him for the day and possibly the night…I called the guys to let them know what was happening. Usually they need to “force feed” charcoal but not Bentley Baby, they gave him the charcoal mixed with canned food and like magic..GONE! They gave him a sedative, an IV and some other meds I can’t pronounce and took him out every hour to pee. When I was leaving I told the vet when they took him out to pee/poop that he would circle numerous times until he found the perfect spot!!! *Once a mother, always a mother* That’s like telling Buddha how to stay calm….REALLY did I actually say this to the vet and get away with it?! She had a huge smile on her face and said they would take good care of him. 😀

He stayed the afternoon, during his stay, he pulled out his IV they needed to put it in his other arm and “CONE” him, even sedated he was a handful and I was called asking when I could pick him up *Laughing out Loud*!!(that part really is not true, just tried to add some draawma to the story) They did however call and say he was ready to go home, the guys were not scheduled back home until later tonight so I went and picked him up, we were only at the house for about 10 minutes when they arrived they must have driven at a great speed to get home from the “Big Smoke” to see their boy!

Poor Bentley Baby is back home with the guys tonight with blackened lips from the charcoal and a clean system and the dreaded “CONE”.

my baby

Poor Baby, I pulled over and got him in the back seat so he could lie down with the cone there was no hope of that in the front seat of my little Nissan

The Vet and Vet technician that looked after Bentley were amazing and treated me with the same kindness.
I was waiting for the vet to come and talk to me when the receptionist came in and said the vet would be a few more minutes and offered coffee or tea and I declined but in typical Angie style requested a Scotch on the rocks!! sorry Mum 😀

So I guess it was a pretty amazing day after all!!!

  1. Good Grief, what a day!!! You did deserve that Scotch on the Rocks … I would even have had one after a day like this!!!

    • Was a long day for everyone, Bentley, and hard on the guys too because they weren’t nearby. I forget what its like to have a puppy in the house sometimes.

  2. Bently looks like my brother in laws dog, Colt, who did something similar. He managed to open the closed and latched bedroom door and snarfed down an entire bag of christmas chocolates. We all spent the holiday looking at him and wondering why he wasn’t straight-up dead. He just looked at us as if to say “what? what’s YOUR problem?” He was bright, happy and proceeded to poop red and green foil for a week. It’s a mystery. But that’s Colt for you. Glad Bently is feeling better!

    • Some dogs are genius!! Bentley seems to have a very sensitive system, he eats socks only to throw them up a day or two later, just need to be super careful with this pooch!! 😀

    • He’s fine, he has a “sensitive” system…many dogs have eaten that and more and not needed a visit to the vet but it’s better to be safe than sorry. I did learn that ibuprofen can be fatal along with Aleve even just a couple of caplets.

      • My 15 pound dog once ate a whole bag of Kisses, wrappers and all, and ended up not caring at all. We, of course, took him to the vet… but he was fine.

      • The vet had said it affects dogs differently, in this recipe there was a 1/2 cup of cocoa, which sent his heart rate soaring, he didn’t ingest the whole 1/2 cup, but what he did eat made him quite sick along with the sugar etc. My “old” dog Simba can eat just about anything without side effects also but, Bentley is a “different breed” LoL!!

      • I guess it’s just like humans. Some of us are sensitive to different things, too! I’m so glad everything ended well. Furbabies are special <33

      • 😀 He does have a very sensitive system it seems, if he eats too much ice or snow he gets an upset stomach which is not very pleasant, very gassy too 😦

  3. Wow what a day you had. It sounds like you took great care of the bentley boy!! He sounds like one that you really have to keep an eye on. Im glad that he will all good and bouncing around soon. That pic of him in the truck, cone of shame and all hunched over made me laugh myy ass off. Well done to you angie!!!! May thurs be calmer for you both.

    • It was an awful day!! I was so worried about him, the vet and vet tech’s took great care of him. I don’t know what I’d do without the little fart! He did look pathetic , I pulled over to put him in the back seat, no room in the front for him LoL! Ever see the movie “Marley and Me”? Well that would be Bentley Baby 😀 😀 😀
