    LOL! Looks like it! Had he just been outside? I find all kinds of things in the water dish after Bogey comes in from outside and drinks! Usually dirt, but you never know!

    Yep, that is what it looks like. I have to agree with @mer55 that if he had just recently been outdoors that's probably the likely reason for it showing up.

    Yes, he had been outside to potty a couple times before i noticed it. I'm going to call my vet once they open up and see if i can send them the image to see what they think.

    -He's had a random cough everyone once in a while, after extertion or when drinking a bunch of water. The vet checked him out last week and didn't think it was kennel cough or collapsed trachea. They just thought it might be just inflammation in the trachea. I'm concerned it could be heartworm, since a symptom is a cough.
    -He's on antibiotics and cough suppressant currently

    Looks like he ate a worm (could have got caught up in his flubbers) and disposed of it in the water bowl. LOL

    Sorry he's been sick, hope he's better soon.

    It probably came in "hiding" in his flubbers ...Those flubbers are great "hiding" places for all sorts of things...

    Called the Vet, they basically thought the same as everyone did here. Just told me to keep an eye on him for now.

    You never know what might show up in a water bowl that they bring in from outside.

    Yea, that looks like a worm. But it looks to me like a regular old earth worm. I don't think it could make your bully sick.
    In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog.

    Been fishing many many years....looks like a nightcrawler earthworm.....works great for bass around these parts.....Okay...not to get off track....but is "flubbers" an actual scientific term lol
    It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men that have died (in battle). Rather we should thank God that such men have lived.
