Things Not To Eat - By Zaphod

Dear Blogville,

I learned a valuable lesson this week about things you shouldn't eat.  The other day I was feeling a bit sick to my stomach and grass was not making me feel better. The Man said he wasn't worried because I was playing like a puppy and he assumed I would be fine. Just as my peeps sat down to dinner, I got sick.

The following is a dramatic re-enactment of what my peeps saw (minus some grass).

You see I decided to eat a whole bunch of fluff from a toy. It sat heavy in my stomach. I threw it up and I felt all better.

I thought I would just spread the word that fluff is fun to pull out, but shouldn't be eaten.

Your pal,


PS - Re Snowstorm

Lady's trainer was her very favourite person in the world on Sunday as he had to cancel their Monday morning session (they moved it to the following Monday - Lady usually gyms Tuesday and Thursday but she can't this Thursday - it is all complicated!). She got to stay in bed until 5:20 and said the drive in wasn't too bad. Took her an extra 20 minutes or so (it normally takes her 1.25 hours). It did make her hate winter more. She wants to move!

    Zaphod - words of wisdom are always worth the spreading! Glad the storm didn't impinge too much on Lady's Monday. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. Oops so true about the fluff - not good to eat but so much fun to play with. That's a lot of driving for the gym, you are very dedicated!

  3. Sounds like Lady wasn't TOOOOO upset about missing her trainer Monday.....as for moving? You love your house and your yard....you'd miss that....winter is icky sometimes but then again playing in the snow is kinda fun too right????

    Hugs, Sammy

  4. Yuck! We hate when we get sick, nothing worse than upset tummies!

  5. that stuff looks like and airy but once it is the tummy it sits there like a rock

  6. Dear Phod...as you may know I am ChairCat of F.L.U.F.F. aka FLUFF and I can 100% assure you it is not for K9 consumption or felines either but then we don't have fluff in our toys just magical Nip.
    thank goodness it came back out.

    Now for the pile of snow you sent to NC...could you please tell me where you put the return label?
    Hugs Madi(son)D ChairCat of FLUFF

  7. Dear BIL... please don't eat that stuffing... in worst case the vet does something with his finger far away from your head... no fun... really :o)
    maybe you can move to brittany? there is a crib for sale next to me... imagine that ... we could become the 3 dogs-keteers... or the 3 dogatas non grata :o)

  8. I know that picture only too well from the little guy Houdini here at the Hotel Thompson. I swear toys just spontaneous combustion like that when he walks into the room... either that or his lessons with brother Easy are beginning to pay off. Snorts with piggy laughter. I hope you are feeling better now sweet friend. XOXO - Bacon

  9. No way. After you kill it, you spit it out

  10. OH NOOOOOOOOOOoooooooo Zaphod... surely you didn't Eat Stuffie Guts... those are NOT fur K-9 Consumption... just fur Ripping out and decorating the Floor.
    HEY you could all move HERE... the snow is MELTING already... WHEW... We are glad about the melting. Come on Down.

  11. Oh Phod we are glad all the stuffy guts came out of your gut and you are feeling okay now. Our mom watches Walter carefully to make sure he doesn't eat any guts when we get to play with a stuffy. Millie doesn't care about those things.

  12. Oh right, so you shouldn't eat the stuffings, I'll try and remember that although I can't promise.....i do tend to try and EATS anythingy I possible can....hehe

  13. Note taken...Do not eat the stuffings....or at least lots of it.

    SHE's forgotten those commutes, one good thing about living way out in the country.

  14. The second a stuffie gets unstuffed here, it is picked up FAST because of that very thing! :-)

  15. Yes, that is why mom takes a toy away when I get a hole in it cause I will eat it.
    Mom has a 30 mile each way commute and that is one of the things she is looking forward to with retirement - no more winter commutes after this one!

  16. I once ate the fuzzy tails off of a couple of my toys. I didn't feel so good either. I eventually pooped them out. I don't get toys with tails anymore. I'm glad you're feeling better now, Phod. ~Zoey

  17. We are glad you puked it all up and are doing well at the pawlice academy. Tell Lady she might not want to move very far south cuz things are gonna go crazy here!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  18. Good advice, P. Fluff isn't food.

    Love and licks,

  19. Been there done that ;) Great advice!!

    Matt (& Matilda)

  20. That iis the main reason we aren't allowed in the room where Jakey does his stuffy carnage. While he doesn't eat it...Arty and I do!!

  21. Oh no! I recently ate a few pieces of my newest squeaky toy. They all came back up the next day. Blah! Fuzzy stuff does not sit well in your tummy!

  22. Yup, mom tells us all the time that the fluff is not marshmallows.

  23. Yeah, fluff is just for destuffing and leaving out for mommas to clean up!

  24. Great advice - fluff is not for eating. We have lots of stuffing-less toys to stop us trying the fluff eating trick. Nose licks and love from Moth xx

  25. Oh Zaphod...you must be related to my sister, Elsa! So far she's eaten my mom's reading glasses, part of a wool sock, a training leash (twice), part of a shoe and a pair of shoelaces, and today a hair band. Us dogs can't be having stuff like that...we need to save room for treats and the good stuff our 'pawrents' give us.
    Your fur-iend,

  26. I'm always telling the dogs this - now they will believe it! :)
