    Default Biggie tried to eat a Black Widow... OMG!!!

    I love this dog. I mean, I really do love this little guy. But boy oh boy, he's trying to give me a heart attack at the tender age of 25. As with all puppies, Biggie is quite fond of exploring the world with his mouth. He's grown rather fond of the times spent being scolded for trying to eat wasps, rocks, dirt and trying to lick the electrical socket. Seriously. sigh...

    Anyway, Biggie and I were walking into the house through the garage after checking the mail like we do everyday. I hear him smacking his lips like he has yet again gotten a hold of something that I did not hand him myself. So, what do I do? I shove my hand in his mouth and take it from him. When I look to see what it was, I found that I had a live, wiggling adult Black Widow writhing in my fingertips covered in slobber.

    Obviously, I jumped, dropped it and stomped it. Threw the mail that was in my other hand on the ground (that reminds me I need to go get that), scooped him up off the ground and ran him inside. We spent the next thirty minutes with me up to my elbows in his mouth with a flashlight and a spoon (to move tongue around). He has since had another one of these checks every thirty minutes since and is not very happy about it. I think somehow he luckily did not get bitten, but I'm still keeping an eye on him like a freaking eagle. I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about, but I was and still am so scared that I was furiously angry. I'm just thankful I didn't lash out on him and just acted concerned instead because honestly, he did what dogs do.

    Well, now to go search the entire garage for any more Black Widows and spray more chemicals than Keith Richards has come into contact with. Like I said, he's acting his normal self and appears to be fine, but I'll rush him to the Emergency vet if I notice even a slight change.

    Now that the terror is over. Here are some cutie face pictures...

    Yeah, I don't imagine this being grown out of either... lol. But, again, I can't get mad at him for being a dog. Especially when he's so darn freaking cute at it! The spiders don't really scare me so much anymore. I mean, they used to, but when you've seen a huge camel spider chase a grown man, well, the spiders in the US aren't so bad any more... lol.

    OMG! Biggie! So glad he's looking ok. Geez!
    You can close your eyes to things you don't want to see,
    but you can't close your heart to the things you don't want to feel.

    Thanks goodness I've never been witness to something like that. Sadly I have to say I've found BabyGirl with a fledgeling in her mouth but I was too late to save it. Now I do a yard inspection every spring to make sure there are no baby birds on the ground.

    How scary!

    We have black widows around our backyard too and I fear the dog getting into them. The venom could be fatal to a small dog so BE CAREFUL BIGGIE!

    (and let me know if you find an effective way to get rid of them!)

    so glad Biggie is OK!

    His slobber must have stunned it

    Now go retrieve your post, have a strong cup of coffee with heaps of sugar and BREATH!!

    I though have never been soo glad that I live in boring old England
    No poisonous spiders here No! No! No!
    Big hairy house spiders that move fast and jump at me and chase me round the house
    Or lurk in the bathtub or under the sheets hiding and waiting to pounce at me
    But no nasty poison

    Oh and if at all possible I love Biggie more now than before that picture of him snuggled with another dog (introductions please) is precious

    Yikes! Glad Biggie is ok!!! Whew!!! We moved in this house a little over 2 years ago, and we were cleaning out the flower beds. My 3 year old nephew is standing beside a big concrete slab that I have my big flower pots on and all of a sudden he says look auntie, a beautiful spider!!! I jumped up and ran over just as this BRAVE lil boy was fixing to pick up a black widow!!! I FREAKED!!! I immediately smooshed it , after I looked at it and called the exterminator. It was (to be a spider) BEAUTIFUL. Shiny black with a perfect shiny red hour glass.....we have never seen anymore and I am thankful
    Bullies leave pawprints on our hearts furever <3
