Did I Do That?!?! - A Note From Beckett

Hi! Iz Beckett.  Momma says she can't concentrate with the sound of her credit card crying so loudly - so I need to tell you what I "did" yesterday to make the credit card so sad. Though, I do have to say - iz dachshunds on the card, so technically, they are howling in pain.

Sigh. Just tell the story Beckett.

OK.  Me and my sib-ster Meadow hang out a lot at Grammy and Grampy's house cuz Momma still haz no fence at da yard of our new house.  We iz good at opening the indoor gates.  Really good.  We got skillz.

Beckett...... STORY!

Meadow opened the fence in Grammy's living room.  We gotz in and I found the CHOCOLATE!  An entire bag of milk chocolate chips from the Grammy's baking stash that she thought was well hidden.  So I atez the entire bag all by myself.  And chocolate makes you thirsty.  Did you knowz dat?!

So I drank and drank and drank.  Then, I erupted like Mount Vesuvius! No gaggy sounds.  Just barf. Of course, Grammy had no clue I ate chocolate. So after the 9th or 10th pukey, she brought me to the V-E-T!  My tummy was so distended, that at first they thought I might have bloat.

After lots of x-rays, and poking & prodding - they decided they needed to see into my tummy.  I heard dat, got upset, realized that my Momma wasn't with me and tried to make a break for it.

Seriously. They did x-rays, and as soon as they said surgery - he ran out of the procedure room.  The vet tech laughingly told me that it took three of them to catch him.

I gotz an IV, and had a good nap.  Momma said that they flushed all the chocolate out of me and then made me eat charcoal twice.  The worst part?  I hadz to stay in the V-E-T office overnight.  I mean, my favorite tech Cass stayed with me...but no Momma!

I was really lucky, and Cass let me come visit Beckett even though the vet's office closed at 5 (I couldn't get there sooner).  She also proclaimed him an absolute angel.  I just wish I hadn't had to pay so much money to hear that...

Seez?  I still haz a chubby tummy.  At least I get to rest with my Momma now.


  1. Beckett, I hope you learned your lesson and next time you won't scare mommy or grammy!

  2. What is it about chocolate that dogs love? I swear my Selah can hear the Oreo package open from a mile away. Feel better soon, Beckett.

  3. Oh my goodnes Beckett! Chocolate iz not for doggies! Hope you are feeling better soon.

  4. Awwww, hope you are feeling better in no time at all. I shared this story on my FB page telling everyone why it is so important to keep your chocolate stash up high ;)

  5. Poor Beckett! Poor Momma! Glad to hear he is on the mend. Isn't it scary though when you don't know what's going on? Awful.

  6. Oh my gosh! Glad he's okay ... Ollie did something similar at a smores party ... she ate all the chocolate and the graham crackers and the marshmallows! Poor puppies! Hope you're feeling better!!!!

  7. Ohhh nooo! If only they didnt like the darn chocolate! So scary!!

  8. Oh, poor pup! My doxie once got into the pantry and devoured a box of chocolate chip cookies that were on a low shelf and was sick for days. His sniffer still goes crazy when he gets a whiff of chocolate though...I don't get it!

  9. Poor baby! They sure keep us on our toes don't they? Hope he recovers quickly.
