I've recently started the pooches on a raw food diet. Figured I'd be home for the long weekend so could deal with any surprises. Well, surprise surprise :shock:

We have this little dutch market near our house that has the most awesome chicken and ribs. No - not for the dogs - for my husband. Apparently while I was out running errands King got one of the discarded rib bones out of the trash and ate it. Or, I should say swallowed it. :o

So I've been dealing with the detox/change in diet for him but imagine my surprise when he pooped a freakin' rib bone!! Not pieces, BUT THE WHOLE DANG THING!! :shock: I couldn't believe it. Fortunately it was a babyback rib but still. I'm so glad everything came out alright. And FINALLY!! my husband listens now when I tell him to shut the pantry door.

Man, that would have freaked me out too! I'm happy it passed though.

Right now I'm slightly worried as Bacon just swallowed a weightbearing bone. It was raw, but she usually just gnaw on those and doesn't eat them.
It wasn't big, so I hope it'll pass with no problems.

Yep. Cooked bones will do that!

I'm glad he's ok! :)

My Grey ripped open the trash last week and ate a cooked chicken quarter. I think I stayed up for 48 hours straight just making sure he was okay.

He eats raw, too, but those cooked bones are damn scary!!
