    Default Tate finds Baby Bean Bags!

    Ugh! So this morning as I'm getting ready for work I hear Tate being very naughty--he's making these slobbery noises plus he's sitting by himself in the living room. When I look over at him he's got slobber all over his mouth and as I'm rushing over to see what he's chewing on, I screech b/c not only did he get a hold of my vintage Baby Bean Bags Doll (I've had this since I was 5 years old...so VERY VINTAGE), but he's ripped thru her and he's now chewing on the "beans"!! Also, one of her arms is missing but luckily I located it a few feet away.

    Here's a pic of the doll; anyone who grew up in the 1970's must recognize her!

    The "beans" are actually super-tiny beads and I have no idea how much he ingested. I ended up giving him an entire white bread hot dog bun and also a slice of whole wheat bread b/c I know this may help bind whatever he swallowed and he can poop it out. He looked fine and HAPPILY ate the bread, btw. He was acting fine but I almost took half day to monitor him but felt he was okay b4 leaving for work.

    Anyone have experience with this? I'm just hoping the contents are tiny enough to simply pass and i am concerned of the "toxicity" of such beans. This doll was 40+ years old.

    Miss Baby Bean Bags is now resting in the trash can.

    These guys really love everything that is forbidden. Well life would be too boring if they behave. Hope it's nothing toxic. Keeping fingers crossed.

    I googled and all i could fine are dogs eating the insides of "beany babies". In those cases, people recommended the bread to bind the beans, and to watch for the usual signs of blockage. I'm pretty sure he didn't eat any other parts of the doll but now i'm worrying again b/c i didn't fully examine it before tossing in the garbage.

    I hope that little squirt is okay. Wish i had a videocam so i can monitor him from work!

    Oh no, I'm sorry about your beany baby, and hope that Tate is okay. I would think the beans will pass through fine, they aren't sharp or large, so he should be able to pass them without danger of puncturing his stomach. My Dozer has eaten so many things and has always pooped or vomited them out. He's eaten socks, a dish cloth, rocks, pine cones, and Nerf bullets from my Grandson. You can alsomgive Tate some high fibre canned dog food to help him move his bowels. That's what our vet gave Dozer when he swallowed a sweat sock. We had to feed him one Tbsp. every one to two hours, and that night he pooped out the sock.

    Oh bread is a good idea to bind things. That is smart! Hopefully Tate will be okay and everything will pass fine. We have been watching Frank like a hawk because he ate a stormtrooper arm (so unlike him and the only reason I was able to figure it out was because he was so loud licking his lips). Why do they do things like this??

    I am sorry too about the loss of your vintage doll.
    Happiness is a warm bulldog!

    @Vikinggirl Monica, thanks for the tip on the high fiber dog food! i should get a can of that to keep around. What kind do you use? I was thinking I'll give him some canned pumpkin this evening as well, just to make sure.
    @Biogirl71 Erin, I can't believe Frank did that! A Storm Trooper Doll's arm?! yikes!! Did that just happen? hope everything will be okay. It's so true tho...when they lick and smack their lips loud, that's a big indication they're up to no good!

    Isn't funny how they will pass over a hundred toys to chew on the one thing they're not supposed to have? I hope Tate passes whatever he managed to ingest easily. I like the bread idea as well. Need to keep some on hand - Bocephus is being extra naughty since I started packing

    Thanks! I used to save ALL my old dolls from childhood and now only have a couple left. With naughty bullys, it's much better (and safer) being a minimalist!

    Hope all "comes out" okay with Tate! Sounds like he should have no problem if the beans were small. As for toxic-I survived my childhood, and according to today's standards EVERYTHING I ate, played with or touched was toxic. Be a good boy Tate and have a good

    Hi Henny, the canned high fibre dogfood was a prescription dogfood that I bought from the vets office. It was made by Science Diet. ( I know not a good food, but it was only meant to be used for a day or two to help move the bowels after he ingested the sock).
