Cookie Monster


Every dog parent is afraid of a chocolate raid by their dog, and it happened to me Monday night. While we were out to dinner, Cassius decided to treat himself to 4 large chocolate chip cookies.

I don't normally leave "hazardous" materials on the counters, but I was in a rush out the door and left a bag of cookies, brought all the way from Charleston, South Carolina by my friend Cornelia,on the counter.

Upon arriving home from dinner, I found a half eaten paper bag in the front lawn. I didn't realize what Cassius had gotten into for about 5 minutes (when I started fantasizing about chocolate chip cookies for dessert). Once it was clear the torn up bag was the cookie bag, I called the pet hospital to find out what to do. They were pretty confident that he hadn't eaten a dangerous amount of chocolate, but recommended we induce vomitting using hydrogen peroxide if we were worried, and if he'd consumed the cookies within the last hour/hour.5. He didn't seem to be ill at all and we were pretty sure the little piggy must have eaten the cookies more than 2 hours before we arrived home, so we decided not to give him the hydrogen peroxide.

Cassius is fine and never showed any signs of being anything but proud of himself for the successful cookie raid. I guess we were lucky! I will be much more careful in the future with chocolate in the house.

Hi Cassius....Glad to hear you are O.K. I don't think I could've resisted those chocolate-chip cookies, either.

Love your photog! I freak out with those kinds of things, too. Fortunately my dog hasn't given me any real scares yet, but my cat sneakily ate some dog treats I had put on the table while I was working with my dog. I was soo scared - and my cat NEVER does that! She was fine, though. :)

Hi!

I love boxers!!

I have a boxer myself (second one, Vaso died, may he rest in peace)

His name is Basil, he's a big brown boxer, with a black nose (ofcourse) and a white chest. He's amazing!!

Here's a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c53epdRocQ8

Check out my blog (and follow if you liked it!) and read my story about my boxer.

I love your pictures! Believe me. Eating a few chocolate chip cookies is no big deal compared to what my Malcolm ate. If you want to know about it, visit my Boxer Blog. (http://house-of-hagg-boxer-dog-adventures.blogspot.com/) See the story from Sept. 30..."The world is my buffet table......" Your dog is really cute and you are great at taking pictures. I have 2 less than 2yr. olds and an 8 yr old. What a life. Boxers are like potato chips.....You can't have just one. :)

I am Mariam used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Priests Abija); he does not advertise on the internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him.contact him here as (518) 303-6207 or spirituallighthealing101@live.com He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something
more.

I just finished reading your article, and really enjoyed it, thank you. You can see some fun Boxer dog books at www.fun2readbooks.com where you can also hear the dog stories for the same price as a paperback book, and they are fun to listen to.
