Doo-doo

September 13, 2007 at 3:07 pm | Posted in dogs | 6 Comments

Yesterday I was woken up at 5am with a case of E.D.D., explosive doggie diarrhea. So much for waking up early to do lesson plans. It took almost an hour to take care of. Everyone at work said I looked so tired. It was the first day I came to work in jeans this semester; I usually save that for casual fridays, if at all.

I put yogurt and pepto-bismal in yesterday’s breakfast and dinner, and also today’s breakfast. Last night was also diarrhea, but he was outside in the driveway, so cleanup was relatively painless.

This morning, normal poopies. 🙂 (*does happy-dance*) No vet visit necessary, and we’re NOT buying any more of those cheap bones from the supermarket anymore! Back to Agway for the bones he likes and don’t result in E.D.D.

On a related note, we also need a toy for him that can stand up to his mighty jaws. Any recommendations, you big dog owners?

  1. Have you tried a kong? They were originally made by the owner of a german shepherd who was notorious for destroying every toy given him. Finally, the dog found a piece of an old Volkswagen and gnawed on it forever which gave the owner the idea.

    They’re well-known in doggie circles and now have many different types. The red ones are for moderate chewers and the black are for the strongest chewers. If you get the original Kong (which is what we use) you can stick doggie treats, peanut butter or even a bit of dry food in them and it keeps most dogs occupied for a while.

    You can get them at most pet stores, but here’s their website http://www.kongcompany.com/worlds_best.html

    Good luck!

  2. I have a red kong, and if we give it to him intermittently, it keeps him occupied for a while. But only if there’s a treat inside. He’s slowly biting bits off of it. We’ll probably want to replace it during the winter sometime.

  3. I’d try one of the black ones next. See if that one can hold up.

  4. Gotcha. That detailed post about doggie-doo, gives all us parents out there free reign to give you all the gory details about our kids.

    Ha!

  5. Sure, SCD. Just post it on your blog, and I’ll be sure to get over to read it. Right after my world tour.

  6. My Blog? Cute.

    Blog? We don’t need no stinkin’ blog.

    Be care friend, or I might just…

    Then you’ll really be in trouble.
