Bones & Stones

Friday Zoe had her monthly check up and shots. I know I’m on lockdown but I had to take her to keep her on schedule & CSP had to work. I didn’t breathe anyone else’s air. Zoe LOVES the vet. More people to love on her. Zoe can't wait for the vet to come in! CSP had been worried that she had a curved spine from sleeping in the crate. I promised him that her sleeping in her crate for 8 hours a night would not cause her spine to curve permanently. But he’s CSP so to make him feel better I had the vet do an xray. Her spine is fine. The xray is super cute. We got to bring home a copy. You can see all the little bones in her little tail. You can also see the rocks she’s been eating. PUNK! Click to enlarge. Zoe's xray Zoe's xrayKiki went too as it was time for her Rabies shot. She’s not so crazy about the vet and hides under my skirt. Zoe & Kiki hiding under my skirt at the vet So the pugs got their shots and I received instructions on how to chop up my pug’s poo to look for the rocks. That they all have to pass within a week or they’d have to go in and get them. FUN! So there I was Easter morning at 6:30 am with Zoe’s first poo of the day. I pretended to be CSI Shanny so I wouldn’t puke. Here’s what I found:

  • 3 white/amber colored rocks
  • 3 black rocks
  • 1 piece of corn
  • 1 piece of carrot
  • 1 orange foam foot
  • 1 piece of blue plastic
  • 5 pieces of charcoal

The foot looked like something you’d use in crafts- not from my house, who knows where she got that. We haven’t eaten corn & carrots or nuts in a looong time. I think she “vacuumed” at the neighbor’s house.Who knew she was a rock eater?!? Now we have to watch her super closely. She’s so close to the ground who knows what she’s doing down there! Oh, and she weighed in at 3.58 pounds. Up one in a month!
