      Macy ate plastic wrap

      When walking Macy today, she pooped normally. A few steps later, she needs to go again and I see something hanging out of her rear. She couldn't poop it out. I literally pulled two separate pieces of plastic wrap out. Since then, she is eating and drinking normally but I have my eye on her. I suspect she got in the trash and had a little feast. The plastic wrap was around a steak my son had cooked. The trash cupboard is normally bungeed but he gets lazy about it and apparently the Big Girl is an opportunist. I just hope she's okay.

      Oh, Macy. Hopefully “this too shall pass” without incident.

      I am usually pulling out long pieces of grass.

      How long between when she ate it and it reappeared? Just curious, Oban ate some and one piece took nearly a week, another three days. At least plastic has some slipperinous to it.

      Please note: You should be careful of pulling things out that you didn't actually see go in or know for sure what they are. If it's wrapped around something inside, or a bag could have something larger and hard inside it, or it's very long - pulling it out could do internal damage. You're supposed to cut it off.

      Macy, tsk, tsk. ETA: Slipperyness? It's slippery? LOL

      Sounds like my world with Samson and Asher. I am happy to report they have not eaten anything they should not have in over 3 months. Last episode with Samson cost me 500 bucks. These guys will just eat anything....except celery!

      Hope all is well and the plastic wrap is the end of it!

      Snowshoe- That's good advice about cutting it off instead of pulling.I didn't think about what else may be in there. I first thought it was just a piece of grass because she loves to eat the tall grass at the lake. I was so surprised when it was the plastic wrap. She got in the trash really late Saturday night or Sunday and the plastic wrap appeared Monday evening.

      She had a morning poop today (Tuesday) with no issues. Hopefully this won't turn into a $500 Samson story.

      If she pooped it out when no one else was around to see you helping her, she doesn't qualify as a member of the "deliberately embarrassing" club. (Sunnie founded that club.)

      Gigi is always running around with some thing she should not. I have 2 kids 7 and 10. We also have neighbours kids during summer running around. She is always doing naughty stuff.

      Sounds like the steak "stayed" & the rest is being "rejected." Guess I would just keep a close eye on her for a few days & if anything seems at all out of the ordinary, otherwise, just the usual "poop patrol!"

      Your garbage sounds a lot more interesting to a dog than mine would be--around here, I can't imagine any part of a steak making it into the garbage......
