So with my first Christmas with a puppy approaching I thought ''OK no tree this year as far too tempting for a puppy'', so instead I get a ready decorated 12 inch tree and put it on top of a plant stand...
Last night Betty decided it would be a good idea to knock the plant stand over ( she had never even gone near it before) bringing the tree to the ground.
On counting the baubles it would appear that one had gone missing. After searching and re-searching the whole house without success I had to came to the conclusion that Betty must have swollwed it. I called the vet and they said to bring her in this morning for precautionary X-rays....
So I've had to leave her there this morning but as the bauble is plastic it might not show up on a normal X-ray and they may have to do a series of X-rays throughout the day using barium meals. If the bauble is still in her stomach they are hoping that they may be able to get it out without opening her up but if it has gone into on near the start of the intestines they will have to operate.... Boy that little dog is certainly putting me through it..
I will let you know how we get on..

Oh Colin what is she like the little scamp, fingers, toes, paws and everything crossed that she didn't swallow it and it's just rolled under something. Let us know how she gets on. Big hugs from Bertie and me.

Oh Colin. I truly feel for you!! I know what it's like when our poos swallow round objects!! I am sending massive hugs to u and Betty! Nacho on the other paw wants to give Betty a high five for following his mischievous ways!

On a serious note I really do hope that it has just rolled under something and Betty is bauble free!

Well done for taking her to the vets straightaway that's the main thing!! Better safe than sorry and whatever the outcome she'll be fine! :) xxx

That's a good one or if she gives me any more grief it will be

Betty going back to breeder:D:D

The vet has just called again to advise that they have done two more Xrays with the barium and still cant see anything - one more to go .. the vet said he cannot guarantee its not there just because they can't see that it and we will still have to look out for symptoms:eek:

Betty!!! You are going to give Colin a heart attack at this rate :eek:

Oh Colin, I hope she is ok? It's so annoying as you can't be 100% sure she has actually eaten it! I'm assuming you checked the garden incase she took it out there and hid it? I really hope Betty doesn't need to have surgery! Sending you hugs :hug::hug::hug::hug:

She couldn't get in to the garden and was left unattended for all of 5 mins..
really I've moved EVERY bit of furniture. I even went back to the store and opened a number of(xmas tree) boxes to make sure that they all had 12 baubles in them ( I've now only got 11)!! but who knows maybe I just got a rogue box with one short.. i just don't know :(

Bringing up kids is easier!!

Betty, you really are a minx...please can go find the bauble now and put Colin out of his misery!

Colin, you are the best Daddy she could have ever hoped for. What signs has vet told you to look out for?

Clare - you do make me laugh:D

Vet has just called with the results of the last X-ray........
he can't find anything:) but no guarantees as it could be hiding somewhere but
fairly certain it's not!! Just got to keep an eye on her to ensure she doesn't start vomiting. Going to pick my baby up NOW!! Yay:D

Oh Colin ... What is bossy knickers like ....

I can't believe she is such a little madam ... I am hoping you just find in somewhere in the next few days .... these poos do try us for sure ....

Betty may come in from the vets and head straight for a hidden bauble .. now that would be cheeky cockapoo style ...

I'm thinking she should have come from the breeder with a health warning

''Betty's can seriously damage your health''..:D

Really am going to get her now....

Thanks everyone for your good wishes etcxxx
