I can't believe I'm writing about this topic. But, my use for this blog is not only to let people know about the happenings in our family but as a journal of sorts too.
Ruh Roh! That's my homage to Scooby Doo.
My blog today is dedicated to our dog Bella. Tuesday she did something very odd. Ethan and Aeron were doing their usual thing of getting into stuff. My house is still quite cluttered and messy. They found a bag of water balloons and proceeded to gnaw the bag open and brought them to me to fill. I filled a few balloons and very carefully without their taking much notice, put as many as I could into a baggy to store for warm weather use.
Unbeknownst to me, Bella found the balloons as well. Moreover, she ate a good 20 balloons. I was dumbfounded when I realized this fact much later as I will describe. I have seen Bella eat foods that no other dog would eat. She's eaten peppermint candies, lettuce, and carrots, to name a few. But, I must have given her more than her share of credit because I never thought she would have tried eating latex/plastic water balloons. Wow!!
So, later that evening as I proceeded to put the small ones to bed, I found 2 donations from Bella. She had thrown up on the upstairs carpet. Yuck! I was completely aghast when I found the colorful water balloons intermixed with her stomach contents. I won't go any farther. It's absolutely disgusting.
And, the next day, when Peter took Bella for a walk he found even more little balloons in her outputs. Oh my gosh! Thank heavens that the balloons didn't clog up her digestive system.
I had to blog about it because I don't want to forget about this little episode and because I was so surprised by the whole incident.
I apologize if I have grossed you out. There's not much to me that is sacred anymore. When you have 5 kids, you've pretty much seen it all and done it all.
