    April, I often overreact. I always seem to rush my guys in at the first sign of something being wrong. Sometimes the vet says wait and watch a day or two and usually they are okay in a day or two. That always seems to happen with a limp or when my dogs don't want to eat breakfast. As a result, I've quit rushing to the vet for those two things and watch for a day with a limp and half a day with no appetite. Better safe than sorry though!

It's such a relief to see even a little improvement.
    AHH Great News thats cool and a relief
    Think the most frustrating part with Odin was not being able to do much drove Me nuts , but the relief i felt when he started to rebound was awsome
    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.

    @Donnam Missed this whole thing-yesterday couldn't connect to internet most of the day. I am so sorry this happened to Winnie,but you were right on it,and did all the right things. All my other dogs always had a toy box full of stuffies, and they loved them and never chewed them-even the shepherds and malanois' Once the Bullies came along,I had to eliminate ALL the stuffies,and anything small enough to swallow. Don't know why they do that-but it sure IS scary! So happy Winnie is doing well now!

    I know, Lynn! My boxers would play with the stuffies and sometimes they would tear them up and pull all the stuffing out and spread it everywhere, but they didn't EAT them! But why anybody would want to swallow an arm or a leg of one--bullies are just crazy sometimes. Also, my bullies have always popped tennis balls immediately. It seems like most dogs like to play with intact tennis balls.

    Poor Winnie - good to hear she's starting to get better. It's amazing how quickly they can swallow items or "steal" them. We are constantly taking socks and wash clothes from Tiberius that he has nicked from the clothes basket. And he too is a big chewer of stuffed toys has already destroyed two Tuffy toys one in one day.

    gosh, it made me nervous just reading your comment... i'm glad you got her to vet right away... i have to watch our Rocky really closely because he will eat whatever is down on the floor.. I caught him today with a glass saucer that i took out on the porch to feed a stray cat... i know now i wasn't thinking he would try to eat the plate... there was nothing on it and he refused to let me have it.. i have to distract him with another toy in order to take away what he has... he is like an infant.. if it hits the floor then its gone..

    Gail, the emergency vet we saw was really good and a couple of her dogs had had blockages in the past. She told me a story of a bulldog who was brought to emergency because he ate a bunch of chocolate. She induced vomiting and in addition to the chocolate, he vomited up a couple of rubber stoppers that would certainly have caused a blockage if he hadn't thrown them up. We just can't watch these guys closely enough!
