The Further Adventures of Diabetic Dog:
So, I'm gone from roughly 8:45 this morning until noon. Somehow, while I was gone, my twelve year old diabetic dog--the same one who pulled all the baking supplies out of a cupboard about two-three weeks ago--pulled a heavy backpack off the kitchen desk chair, pushed said chair over to the kitchen counter, climbed up on the chair, and reached way to the back of the counter and pulled down a bag of Newton Thins and ate most of them--plus a few Meyer Lemon thins. Fortunately, there was very little sugar in either type of cookie no and high fructose corn syrup. Unfortunately, the Newton Thins are high fiber.
The vet made him throw up, but not much came up, which likely means he ate them closer to nine than noon (apparently he couldn't wait until I left to get busy; he's tried unsuccessfully to snatch those cookies out of my hand last night, which he typically does not do but was unsuccessful). The vet does not think it's really had a serious effect on his diabetes either, but they elected to keep him for a couple of hours, just to be on the safe side. Really, I wouldn't mind so much if they'd keep him until the fiber runs its course (pardon the pun), but I suspect they'll be asking me to come get him before then if I don't show up.
The kitchen desk chair is now in the basement. Let him try to drag it up from there. From now on, I guess cookies will have to be put in tins--and maybe placed on top of the refrigerator, just to be on the safe side.
