Okay, so I'm really starting to believe Sandar's previous comment about me not having the capability of having a drama-free life. The source of drama tonight: the darling pupcicle!

So...guess what she did this evening? She ate a peach--pit and all (however did you guess??). Of course, i get on-line to see what to do and all i find is articles about how peach pits have arsenic in them and are potentially very poisonous (duh!)....call mom. She doesn't answer, so i call new vet.

After 'splaining to receptionist/vet tech/phone answerer that Addy helped herself to my peach (which i stupidly left on table and walked away from, not thinking...like a dumbass), i got a "oooohhh...labs! hold please." Which made me feel slightly better, as my reasoning here--is that if it would be really toxic, she would have said come in now!

The vet gets on phone and confirms that she is a lab and is fully grown and says that she'll be fine. It should go through just fine...just keep an eye on her poo to make sure it comes out (oh joy). If she does start vomiting (double joy), then it means that it got blocked somewhere and bring her in. I then ask if they are poisonous to dogs...and he sighed (probably in exasperation of worried doggie moms who have access to waaaaaaaaay too much information on the world wide web) said no--they're "meant to pass right on through to be dropped and seeded" (nice thought there) of course, usually by horses and cows, but labs are big and as long as they're fully grown, they are fine....

Of course, now i'm watching her like a hawk...so far, she just been snoozing by my feet...

damn dog!
