    So... I haven't been around much the past few days because I've been moving. Gonzo HATES moving. It takes him a few months to adjust to a new home, and he gets very anxious and neurotic when we move.

    Last night, I had to pick up more stuff, so I left the dogs in my room - which I thought was secure. I had a box of dog brushes, shampoo, and vitamins sitting on a desk but I didn't even think twice about putting it away. I came back to an empty bottle of Gonzo's joint supplement vitamins, from the Vet... there was about 30 in there. The same joint supplements that I have to wrap in cheese to feed him! D:

    So, while I was supposed to be studying for a final today, I was up all night worried about him; the e-vet said he should be ok, but he was obviously feeling sorry about his snack. He drank tons of water and laid in a corner all night. This morning, I awoke from 2 hours of sleep to find no messes! I was ecstatic. I took him on a walk, then came back and took a shower, and walked out to find a huge pile of vomit (which contained a bunch of the huge vitamins) and diarrhea by the door. Ughhh. And he just looks so sad. I really, really hope he gets better and this doesn't go on... or he'll be going to the Vet. Has anything like this happened to anyone else?

    Aww, poor Gonzo. How many of the vitamins came back up? Hopefully he'll start feeling better now that some of the stuff is out of his body.

    It was a huge pile of them. Including the pieces of a bully stick he had eaten shortly before the incident... I didn't count, but it seems like he pretty much evacuated his stomach. I hope so! =/
