My Dog
My dog is quite possibly the nastiest creature in the world at this time.

I was looking at him - and he's sitting on the ground outside, with his backpaws up near his ears, and scraping his booty along the cement.

So I went outside and called to him to see if I could find out what the problem was. I found out alright.

Apparently - he got into the trash and ate some saran wrap.

This saran wrap is now hanging out of his butt. What the hell am I supposed to do? I am NOT pulling it out. I'd wait for my man to come home and do it - but that's next weekend.

And he keeps sniffing at his butt, but he won't yank it out himself.

Do you think I should bring him to a vet and have him pull it out? I can't just leave it there.

On a scale of 1 - 10...10 being the grossest... I think this qualifies as a 12.

    Norman, I honestly think you should take the dog to the vet. The saran wrap could cause a blockage or an infection, and, not only will it put the dog through painful and avoidable surgery, it will also be more expensive to "ignore" it. Just my 2 cents. They will be able to safely remove it, without a doubt.

    On a different note - you poor thing, that sound uber-gross. :(

    I agree. You don't want to take any chances on it getting stuck and him getting worse.

    Oh good lord woman! Don't you have enough other things to worry about? I know by now you've probably already taken him to the vet, but if not, put on some disposable plastic gloves and yank it out. Eww, I know. Just try not to think about it too much.

    Ours has done the same thing with socks and balls of my hair. He takes them out of the garbage. Wierdo.

    Yes, you can SLOWLY pull it out. You don't have to take him to the vet. My exDH just grabbed paper towels and with a really interesting look of disgust on his face, slowly removed my 'down to the butt' strands of hair that had somehow came unballed inside him.

    Have fun! :-) ... still standing after the tornado?

    Yeah, um, yum.

    Either remove yourself or take it to the vet. That shit's dangerous (no pun intended).

    Good luck, either way.

    The first thing that popped in my head was his butt looks like a Kleenex box with the tissue sticking out the top.

    Take him to the vet!

    My cat had a huge string hanging out and we pulled it out slowly, gross!

    Have a good week!

    I also vote for the vet. My dog ate some of my underwear that he actually passed (found a bit in the yard just last week even though it happened a few months ago). When he ate all the used sanitary napkins in the bathroom trash, it was a different story and surgery was the only option (and not so cheap). As to why he has a fixation on such things, I can't even try to explain, so be happy its only saran wrap!

    You are one busy lady, and then this dog business on top of everything else. Hope all goes well with you dog. What you need is an "Alice" from the Brady Bunch to help you out 'till you get settled.

    In my professional opinion you should put the dog out of its misery. Bullet to the head.

    That's just me though. Your opinion may vary. :)

    .... I need to bookmark this post for future reference.

    Every time I THINK I want to get another dog... that my heart yearns for the days we had "Jack" I need to read this post and these comments and tell myself I really... really... don't.

    Blech!!! How much do you like your dog????? Just kidding - our dog ate 2 nylon collars, spitting out only the metal pieces and had to go to the vets...

    Don't be a wuss. Slap a pair of rubber gloves on and just do it.

    You've got too many other things you need to spend money on right now.

    I'm sorry I just had to point out on the Ads by Google bit next to the comments was the following advert.:

    Pet Anal Gland Remedy
    Natural Remedy for Healthy Functioning of Pet Anal Glands.

    Google really needs to double check their ads...

    I will have every single one of you know that I did not have to pull the plastic out. I was about to go out there and do it myself (had the rubber gloves on and everything) when I saw the girl dog pull it out for him.... it had like ... a dingleberry or something on the end of it, which explained why it was stuck. I've watched him doody now 3 times and he seems to be ok. Don't worry. If he tries to push out my garbage - I'll run him in!!
