What a Corn Dog!!

Our little Molly is a stinker! Three days ago Hannah was sitting at the table having a corndog for lunch when Molly jumped right up and grabbed it out of her hand and swallowed the hole thing....stick and all!! I took her to the vet and after waiting a couple days and it was not coming out on it's own she had to have major surgery yesterday to remove it from her intestine!! Her Dr. is very sweet and nice and I'm so thankful to him. She came home today and is doing well for having 17 staples in her tummy! My kids are very sure that she has learned her lesson, but I for one am planning to put her in the kennel if we ever have corndogs again!!

A $550.00 corndog stick.

Our sweet little girl.

Oh my goodness!! I think Molly really likes corn dogs!! I can't imagine needing to pay $550 to have a corn dog stick removed. Too bad Molly probably will never connect the action with the consequence. Our dogs are pretty well trained to stay away from our food. They'll beg, but get very little for it. One thing they have a hard time with is little girls with hot dogs in hand.

Molly is one lucky dog! She still looks like she is a bit out of it. I hope she recovers quickly and is back to normal as soon as possible.

If only we all could learn not to eat the obviously troublesome things!!

I'm so glad you were able to get the surgery done. I also happy that Molly is doing well and recovering. I still can't help myself trying to imagine that corn dog stick coming out. OUCH!!

I can't even fathom how she swallowed the whole thing, stick and all. And, ouch! that was a very expensive corn dog! Ouch for her and ouch for you!!!!

Had to tell you. Our neighbor asked a girl to Homecoming and she answered by covering his yard with Almond Joys. The kids brought a bunch over and put them on our floor by the front door. I was gone, when I got home the dogs were going to town. I counted 5 wrappers emptied, then one got thrown up in the kennel over night. They're not feeling so good. But they're doing better than the first day.
