Big Trouble Ahead - BIG!



I made the BIG mistake (I'll know exactly how big later) of leaving out a bag of smoked sausages where Wilbur could apparently reach them. And when I say a bag, I mean 10 smoked sausages that were each approx 12" in length. Please have mercy on my soul. (Although he doesn't know it, Wilbur has a rather sensitive stomach)



Thanks everyone for your kind words on the new look of my site! It's a little easier to navigate and I was able to use all of my own photographs throughout. I have added a few more items today including another 'Place in Time' clock. This one is very art deco in style and very heavy due to the solid lucite frame....



I just love these old metal clips - they make great bookmarks!



I made up another 'Dinner Party Bottled Fortunes' set - this one out of the sweetest mis-matched antique bottles...



Well, I guess I'm on poop patrol for the rest of the weekend.
What fun!

I feel your pain regarding the pooch.
I know that dogs are supposed to reduce our blood pressure etc, but mine just increase it. I wouldn't have to sweep and mop nearly as much if I didn't have them, and their hair is everywhere. But then again, My life would be less full without them, So I guess they are worth it. Glad he had a good meal, yummm Sausages!!!
Love those tags too.

Wilbur is so unbelievably cute ~ that face... I know you want to get mad sometimes when they pull a stunt like that, but how can you? Good luck with that this weekend :).

Your shop is beautiful, not to mention all of the lovely things your offering!

Have a great weekend!

Fortunately dogs evolved as scavengers and in my experience can handle eating practically anything that doesn't eat them first!

Really love your clocks, btw!

Oh Wilbur!! Good thing you are so cute, since you were so naughty!
Hope you don't get a doggy tummyache!

umm...Wilbur is a sheep dog, right? Gosh, better get the snow shovel out! Hope everything comes out okay...

Kim's Treasures said...

Oh no! Trust me...if he wakes you up in the middle of the night...take him out. Last week my dog tried her hardest to wake me up but I was so dead asleep (which is very rare) that I had no idea what was going on. Well...let's just say there was quite the mess in 4 rooms waiting for me in the morning! SIGH! Hope he's feeling ok later!

Wilbur will be fine but anyone in your house with a nose...not so much! Be ready for those silent but deadly toots! I know this from first hand experience...good luck!

SOOOO curious...How did Wilbur fare after a few days? Is his tummy OK? I just love that dog...

Oh, Wilbur, you naughty boy! I know exactly how you're feeling, Joy. My Dolly can be a little stinker sometimes too, and is always stealing the kids' food and snacks. She hasn't found anything that has caused me to go on "poop patrol" though, but it's only a matter of time. Hope it wasn't too bad!

I thought of you on our holiday as I was perusing a big flea market.
Hope you're enjoying your summer.

OH HOW COULD YOU NOT JUST LOVE THAT FACE! Love your blog! We have had doggie trouble here too. -Cheers, Amy

I was so happy to read that Wilbur made it despite eating all that sausage. Thats so interesting that although he has a sensitive stomach he didn't react badly to alll that smoked meat! That could have been very awful. Naughty puppy.
