Claimed as a prize. She ate it, whatever it was.

    Since spraining my ankle I've had to leave the teaching of puppy Muffin to walk nicely to my partner and make do with a daily progress report of her progress and socialisation.

    My partner has had his instructions; Praise walking by your side. Praise wees and poos, note consistency of poo but don't make an issue about picking it up, I don't want her sampling it again, don't forget to take poop bags. Keep her by your side or in front but don't let her pull, sled dog training comes later. It's a no-no if she wants to go up the earth bank and jump off it, agility training also comes later. She can play in water but no swimming lessons yet please.

    So they came back today and I asked "has she been good?". "Yes, she's done a wee and a poo, and she walked nice without pulling, but she jumped off the stile at the end and.......erm.....she ate something, it might have been a funny shaped leaf......or a small rodent... I couldn't see, she wouldn't let me have it whatever it was.

    I can imagine those little jaws firmly clamped round her prize and that look that says "ha ha, I found it and I'm not letting you have it".

    What has your dog pinched or found and claimed as a prize?

    There was a big chunk of rotting meat in the snow-covered field where I usually walk the dog, getting progressively smaller as each dog found it, gave it a chew, and was forced to drop it by their owner. It kept changing positions, being buried again by some hound or other, and you could see it shrinking as the weeks went by, but now it has gone completely.

    Walking two beagles across a field I saw a woman taking a short cut from the shops across some waste ground. My two spied her and got through a hole in the fence. The woman put down her bag to give one of them a pet when the other poked his nose in her bag and took off with a bag of sausage rolls. All I could do was stand at the fence and shout apologies. I said give me your address and will recompense you but she said not to bother and thankfully she thought it was a laugh.

    Camel poo.

    What didnt get eaten, got rolled in.

    Mine arent ones for poo eating, but this was obviously far too tasty to be ignored.

    My dogs are disgusting, it's usually Toby though that picks the most horrible stuff. So far they have found & run off with:

    - a rotting toad which both dogs decided to squabble over until it burst :eek:
    - a rotting carp - Toby swam across the river to fetch it. He bought it back to the bank & that burst as well, covering him in the most vile dead fish juice!!
    - a rotting afterbirth (probably from one of the cows). I had to wrestle with Toby to get that off of him. It was disgusting, I stunk as much as he did afterwards :(

    My previous dog was terrible - dad (in a world of his own usually!) was walking him and got a bit embarrased because people kept giggling as he walked passed so had a look at Benson, he had a babies dummy in his mouth. Another time Dad hadn't noticed he was trotting along beside him carrying a dead rabbit. But think the best was he ran off down a neighbours drive and came back with a loaf of bread (local milkman delivered)

    My worse one was when Adam was a pup and had a thing about eating rubber. One time he found a rubber surgical type glove and kept far enough away from me sp that he could eat the whole thing!!
    He probably only weighed about 5Ibs himself so I was gobsmacked he ate the whole thing!:eek: Even odder was the fact that it never made an appearance again (from either end!!):skep:

    Oh, I have another. It's not really disgusting but hugely embarrassing. Rupert was not particularly interested in food at the best of times and would actually back away in horror if a stranger offered him something. If a casual acquaintance offered him something he'd take it and hold it in his mouth until they'd gone and then spit it out.

    Anyway, one day we were walking through the park where some sort of event was going on. No big deal, he's not bothered by the band playing or the children running around. Suddenly he leaps up at this woman, grabs her hotdog out of her hand and swallows it :eek: I couldn't believe it. I wanted the ground to open up and swallow me. I apologised profusely and offered her the money for another hot dog, said the dreaded "oh my god, he's never done that before!" which he hadn't but which everyone says despite nobody believing it. Thankfully she was very nice about it, made a fuss of him and refused the money. I laugh about it now but I could have bloody killed Rupert at the time!

    Many years ago when I was just a teenager, I was walking our airedale when she picked something up...... I immediately pulled it out of her mouth and found it was



    A USED CONDOM!!!! :cursing:


    OMG I felt sooooooooo sick and was at the age where I was too embarrassed to tell anyone about her picking up something so disgusting!

    Makes me chuckle now, but at the time - oooooooo the embarrassment!

    One day I was walking Ziggy and Kite at the shore by Morecambe Bay. A family preparing a barbecue were there too, and they invited Kite over to say hello (cute 6-month old pup as she was then). Next thing she's belting off trailing a string of raw sausage links behind her, like something in a cartoon. She ate the whole lot behind a rock, demolished them in about 3 seconds. I offerred to go to the village shop and buy new ones, but they said it was OK, they had loads, and it had been funny:D

    Typical! Little Blue hasnt been very well lately, she woke me up 2 mornings in a row at 4am by being sick. The first night i didnt turn my light on so didnt 'examine' it, but the 2nd morning i figured something was wrong so i turned the light on and she had eaten my other dogs toy!! The vomit was mostly chunks of plastic sausage. Needless to say the sausage toy has been thrown out. :( You can tell theyre sisters, both eating things they shouldnt!! Naughty naughty!! :D


    Blue is fine now though, currently munching away on a chicken drumstick :p

    I think I posted on here before about it, but we were walking in the park one afternoon and Prince had what I thought was a tissue in his mouth, he had been walking along with it for a while before I seen and it turned out to be a used sanitary towel :frown2: :frown2: :D

    Bosleys worst was half a dead rotting rabbit and the little sod would not let me anywhere near him, swallowed the thing practically whole.....strangely he is not a fan of rabbit since.

    Lexi wasn't bad just really embarrassing, the week after we got Bos we did the three yorkshire peaks challenge for cancer research, got to top of second peak and stopped for a breather, I was in a fairlt comatose state not really aware of what Lexi was doing, turned round to find she had stolen another walkers bag of sandwiches from their rucksack on the floor, tore open the bag and downed the lot....poor bloke was not a bit dog fan anway and had nothing else to eat, could have strangled her!!!! :eek:
