It's December! Which means I have official license to play X'mas song all day and be in a jolly mood for no particular reason, yippee!
Adding to my holiday cheerful mood is the purchase of our X'mas tree today. I just love the smell of fresh pine around the house (which, I know, can also be achieved by mopping your floor with Pine Sol for a lot less).
Bryson, on the other hand, isn't too fond of the tree. I guess it just seems strange that all of a sudden there's a tree in the middle of the house. Plus it's not edible.
But then he wouldn't really be a corgi if he didn't try...
No, he didn't try to eat the tree, but he kept wanting to lap up some of that water in the tree stand (which has this tree preservative thingy added to it):
And we think while we weren't watching, he probably succeeded, coz 10 minutes later, he was retching and throwing up violently all over the car while we were driving on the freeway!! We had to pull over to check on him coz it just went on and on and on... I'm gonna save you from all the gory details, suffice to say that we almost drove straight to the vet.
But as suddenly as it came on, it just stopped after he's apparently emptied the content of his stomach after many nerve-wrecking minutes. We were so relieved that we didn't accidentally kill our dog!
We came home to check the label of the bottle, and this is what it says:
I wonder if it's the dextrose or fertilizer that attracted him in the first place. He seems fine now, but with all the iron, I wonder if we should call animal poison control anyway... Guess I have to research more into it. Anyone with experience to share?
