The erks are making the rounds...


There have been a few cases of the “erks” going around blog land, including Stuart and Sidebite.

While I have been well Floyd has woken the family up two nights this week with the erks.

The first time he woke us all up at 4 o’clock in the morning and threw up a large lump of unchewed food... What a silly dawg! He inhales his food SO quickly that he forgets to chew and makes himself sick!

Again at 4 o’clock the next night he was erking and erking and eventually threw up something black and rough. The humans had a closer look and found out it was a piece of the doormat from the back door which was mysteriously found in several pieces that afternoon.

You can imagine how impressed we all were, to be woken in the middle of the night because Floyd was silly enough to try and find out what the doormat tasted like!!

From the result I guess it didn’t taste too good...

On a serious note, Floyd is actually lucky he was able to bring it back up and that it didn’t get stuck inside him somewhere and cause a blockage; silly boy.

We would have been very upset had he made himself
seriously sick <3


Also, our palls Susie and Sidebite have asked us to pass on a warning to all the doggies and doggie owners out there. Poor Bites was sick with Hemorrhagic Gastroenteritis and was luckily taken to the dogster in time or there could have been a very sad ending to his story.

The symptoms for Hemorrhagic Gastroenteritis are profuse vomiting, followed by depression and bloody diarrhoea with a foul order; if you know a pup who is suffering from these they need medical attention quick smart! Don’t muck around get them to the vet!

On that note I hope you are all well and stay that way so you can enjoy your weekend.

    1. I hope he gets that now. The humans have decided to buy a sturdier doormat to prevent further... eating...

    1. C'mon Jazzi, you're not the random object eating sort of gal are you? I thought Scotties were more discerning than that?

  5. Those are great reminders--Socks don't taste that great either, they may smell good, but they are not a tasty treat!! :-)

    Enjoy your weekend!!

    1. I agree, socks are great! Any human leaves one laying around and they're fair game as far as I am concerned!
      But I don't actually eat them! They're just for chewing and playing tug 'o war!

  6. I understand the eating too fast and paying for it but a doormat? They can't possibly taste like licorice, can they?! We're glad you're okay, Floyd!
    We love the cartooned you, Dougall!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  7. We're so happy Floyd was able to chuck up that mat.

    We read about Sidebite, it was something we didn't know about.

  8. A doormat. That's a good one. Of course it wasn't you Dougall. Somehow you terriers seem to know not to eat this stuff. Mr. Fox - part chihuahua and part crazy eats it ALL. Napkins, socks, wrappers of granola bars, crayons, plastic lego toys, the stuffing out of dog toys after he's eaten part of the toy, sneakers, socks and I could keep going. He hasn't eaten a floor mat yet. He actually eats these things, you know EATS the sock! I sure am glad Floyd brought that chunk of doormat up because it wouldn't be a pleasant trip to the dogter for him or the humans and you would be lonely while he was there. I will stop going on and on now!

  10. Hi Dougall,
    Thank goodness Floyd is alright and actually "erked" up that mat! There must have been something tasting good on that mat to entice Floyd, no? Because rubber like that doesn't even smell nice!
    It seems like Scribble isn't the only silly boxer around! Scribble is our boxer cousin we see almost weekely, who we will be introducing soon on our blog- Mama is so disorganized!
