The House with the Pink Shutters. Today My Dog Ate………….
This is Paleoti. He was abandoned by his last owner and and became a street dog who lived off scraps the villagers fed him and, I presume , by scavenging. Just under 2 years ago Paleoti came into our lives when he found his way to our village and hung around the square with his mate Penelope – another abandoned dog. The dog was always hungry and even when he got very sick from a dog bite on his neck that became infected, he managed to chow down the food we put in front of him. I will tell the whole story in another blog of how we came to adopt him , but for now I just want to say that this dog will eat anything and seems to have a cast iron stomach. So today my dog snacked on used toilet tissue (not mine I hasten to add) that was up by the bins, rabbit droppings a dead bird, a green bone that the cats had abandoned, dirt, my potting soil and gravel. This is in addition to the food we give him twice a day and biscuit treats. I would love to hear what the worst thing your animal has consumed 🙂
My George is rather keen on spongy ear plugs, orange or pink, both will do!
When I was newly married, many, many years ago, I lived for a short time in a 14 by 60 ft. mobile home. I had an Irish Setter and a collie, both fairly young. First they ate a bowl that contained Sees candy butterscotch suckers….plastic wrap and cardboard sticks and all. They they ate an entire pan of brownies. The next day they completely destroyed the air-conditioning system and insulation underneath the mobile home, along with eating some of it. We had to move out afterwards. I had another dog later that I’d adopted while living on the Navajo reservation in AZ. Later, I had this dog in CO, and the dog would make regular trips to the local town dump, to chow down.
Wow air conditioning. That’s a new one for me. Thanks for sharing
I think dogs are like goats – they eat just about anything. Maybe it is because dogs eat so fast they never even have time to think about what they’ve eaten – until later, when they throw up! Yuck! Kudos to you for taking in these dogs.
Thank you. Paleoti is no trouble in all other respects. Abandoned dogs are very loving and loyal on the whole. Most of my friends on the island has adopted one.
