And That's SOME BULL
It is a pretty good set up, really. We were parked in the shade so even though it was a warm early evening, it was comfortable in the car. I had a bowl of water and a carpeted surface all to myself - and Mommy #2's lap if I wanted. I was looking for someplace to relax when Mommy #2 pulled out the BEST TREAT KNOWN TO PUGDOM - the BULLY stick.
We do not get them very often because I tend to leave them all over the floor for the peeps to step on.
Oh what JOY!
So I settled down on the floor right under Mommy (and the steering wheel) and started enjoying that most tasty of CHEWS. I chewed and chewed, softening it up JUST RIGHT. Then, I don't know what possessed me. . . but I swallowed it. . . whole. . . just like that. I looked up at Mommy, panting a little but smiling.
She took one look at me. . . one look at the empty floor. . . and flew into what can only be described as a TIZZY! Not to be confused with a TIFFY, who is one of my BFFs. An all out-just this side of panicked- TIZZY is what we had. She quickly stowed her iPad, closed up the car, grabbed my leash and escorted me outside. She reasoned walking may make the BLOB settle and pass quicker.
I don't know if it did- I only peed once or twice. But I know I felt a lot better just trotting along. It was a nice evening, after all. After a time, we went back to the car to read some more. I sat on the car floor, still panting. I drank some water, decided it tasted good, and drank some more.
Suddenly I BURPED! Really loud. And really smelly. But you know what? I felt better. Well, that is my TUMMY felt better. Mommy let me have it verbally about swallowing BIG things whole, about Bully Sticks (I will NEVER get one again), and about vet BILLS (uh. . .).
Lesson learned - until the next time, I'M SURE!
