I was walking my dog a few hours ago and as she was sniffing around, a lady stopped to tell me her dog was a mini-me of my dog Diesel. Then she continued on that she was actually on the way to pick up her baby at the vet. It is very common for people in my neighborhood to stop and chat about their dogs, so I asked how the dog was. She said that her dog had swallowed a too small chew toy (belonging to a much smaller dog) and was having to be given massive doses of laxatives to resolve the issue. I felt so sorry for the poor dog-my dog acts embarrassed when she has even a slight case of the runs. So watch out for what your doggie is chewing on, kids!
