full of beans


Just a quick note to let you all know that Jack is full of beans again. He woke up on Monday morning and had a little food and drink. Today he is back to his normal naughty self: he found some alpaca yarn today that I had all forgotten about and he toppled over my hyacinth pot....

Sam said that he saw Jack eat a dead mouse. Why Sam didn't remove the dead mouse, or at the very least told me about it, is something only teenagers will understand.

Thank you for all your get well wishes and helpful emails, too. Jack is definitely due for a worming this week and I will take out insurance for him, too. Any suggestions for a good pet insurance are appreciated. Did the sore tummy stop Jack from eating crap? Of course not. He is still sniffing out horrible stuff, and today on our walk he found a rotten potato that he thought very appetising indeed.
 
Have a lovely rest of the week. Cx

  1. Sadly, that's how dogs are. Ours eats no end of crap that he picks up, and the vet told me (after yet another visit when he was a pup) that it would generally come out one end or the other and only to worry if it didn't come out of either. I'm glad he's back to his normal self again, and I suspect that you'd rather have him naughty than poorly! We use Pet Plan; it's more expensive than some of the other policies available but there have never been any problems with them paying out and their cover limit is very generous xx

  3. I am glad that Jack is OK! I have heard very good things about pet plan for insurance, and it is worth having. I hope that he doesn't wreak any more havoc this week! xx

  5. I think you need to start calling him Saucy Jack, haha. It must be a relief to know what was wrong with him. I hope he stays away from the carrion from now on.

  7. Very pleased to hear that Jack is well again! I was out walking with Meg (our lab) yesterday and found myself wondering how he was, and hoping he was ok. We use Sainsbury for our pet insurance, they came recommended by a friend. Thankfully we haven't had to use them so far! X

  8. I'm glad that Jack is on the mend.Honey would love to eat crap (esp fox poo) but one look from me and she backs away looking guilty. I don't know why I don't have the same effect on the boys. She'd love to roll in it too.
    Have a great weekend,
    Leanne xx

  11. Pleased to hear that Jack is better. They do have the most revolting eating habits sometimes, but we love them all the same! Jxx

  12. I am ever amazed at the stuff our pets will turn their noses up at when presented in their food bowl and then what they'll eat when met in the raw. We had a cat that constantly ate lizards or at least their tails and it always made him sick. Did he stop doing it? Of course not.
    Glad Jack is better though.

  16. Glad to hear that Jack's well again, they can be such a worry sometimes. Archie would eat the most revolting things when he was a puppy, I was forever chasing him to remove a slimy slug or snail from his mouth, which can actually be quite dangerous to dogs as they can cause lungworm. He used to crunch on stones too. Luckily, he's grown out of those sort of habits but he still loves to roll around in anything smelly.

  18. Our dog (now sadly only in memory form!) used to love to eat and roll in a bit of fox poo - upset tummy and ear mites as a result. Glad he's on top form again! xx
