Stuck puppy happy ending Friday thread

Poor pooch got his head stuck in the cookie jar.

Won't stop him trying again if he gets the chance - despite that woeful expression on his face.

Never mind "poor thing". I'll bet that if you put the same jar with 2 molecules of cookie inside it (or even without) he'll do it again.

We had a beagle who would eat slabs of butter if you put the shopping bag down for half a second. He couldn't digest the butter (or the Aluminum), so he'd be sick for days. He did this over and over, you'd have thought he would learn (for that matter, you'd think my ex would have learned).

Nope.

“‘Ole in’t road? Luxury!”
We used to have a springer spaniel who once nicked and ate a 400gm salami from the kitchen top while we were out. We didn’t even notice till a few days later when we found the string and tag behind the sofa and then realized why he been so thirsty a few days earlier. Other than that, he took it in his stride.
His crowning achievement, however, was gobbling down an entire chocolate cake. This resulted in him being banned to the garden at 3 am with chocolate sauce emerging from front and rear. I now know exactly what the expression “Sick as a dog” means. And yes, I know that chocolate is supposed to be deadly to canines, but 24 hours later Escal had his appetite back to 100% with no after effects. The silly old bugger had a cast-iron gut.
For a time we also looked after a Peruvian street dog (smuggled into Switzerland by her owner as a pup, believe it or not) with a gargantuan appetite. She took every opportunity possible to swipe food, it was in her genes. My daughter fed her one evening, but then left the food sack open in the cellar. Mistake. Come 11pm, and I was just drifting off to a well-deserved sleep, when the cry “Dad, Lulu’s throwing up!” came up the stairs. And indeed she had. The first time I faffed around with tissues, but by the time I’d got that portion into the loo she had chuffed up another generous pile of what was, essentially, wet dog food. I’m not squeamish, and not patient either, so the second and third lots were hand shovelled into the loo, which I swear was three-quarters full by the end. It was honestly difficult to imagine that a Labrador-sized dog could hold so much in its stomach! I had a very bad moment when, on flushing the loo, the water rose to within a hair’s breadth of the rim, but it all went down in the end. Lulu spent the rest of the night in the garden, too.
Poor things, indeed!
