Here's a discussion that I bet most all of us can participate in...I bet some people have several stories to share about times when our dogs did something crazy or funny.
This is a story about my first Irish Setter, Chelsea. It is only funny that in retrospect or looking back, she was not sick or injured.
A good friend of mine had recently taken a job as an international CFO for a local company. He was spending most of his nights overseas and with the time zone differences it was upsetting his sleep schedule. He started telling me about a supplement called Melatonin, which is a supplement/pill that resets a person's sleep clock to when they want to go to sleep, almost like a sleeping pill. At the time, I was having a bit of difficulty getting to sleep so I thought I would try some.
I went out and bought a 500 capsule bottle of Melatonin and made the mistake of leaving it on the kitchen counter. This was before I was familar with the term 'counter-surfing'. When I came home from work the next day, I noticed that the bottle of melatonin pills was no longer on the kitchen counter. I found the bottle in the living room with the child-resistant/tamperproof top tore off and not a pill to be found. Chelsea had ate 499 Melatonin pills. She was prancing around showing no sleepiness or ill effects whatsoever. I immediately call the vet and that if she was going to suffer any ill effects, I would have saw them by now.
Again, funny in retrospect, but I learned a lesson in a scary few minutes.
