Zeus vs. Corn on the cobb

May 24, 2012  •  1 Comment

 

Ok...Now that it's over,(not yet laughable), I'd like to take a moment and send out a warning to all dog owners about corn on the cobb.  Which, by the way, is now forbidden in my household.  About 3 weeks ago I was scraping off the dinner plates into the garbage, Zeus' favorite time of the day, when a piece of corn on the cobb managed to slip off the plate and just barely graze the floor.  My thoughts to even form the word NO did not even register before the cobb was gone.  It was that quick.  I must not have thought much about it because 4 days later at the vets office my jaw dropped when the she revealed to us what was the cause of Zeus looking absolutely misarable, not eating and trying to make himself vomit.  Yes, the corn on the cobb. After seeing the vet bill for surgery I knew that I needed to work on my ninja reflex skills.  It is now 3 weeks later and many Benjamin Franklins lighter, but Zeus is back to his old self.  :) 

So a word to all dog owners...beware of corn on the cobb.

If you have any doggie injested foreign object stories I would love to hear!
