A few months ago I had an incident with my shepherd Zoey that involved her eating something she was not supposed to have eaten. I’ll spare you the details on what exactly it was that she scarfed down, only because we’re not BFF’s yet and this would definitely be TMI, but it was something that if left unattended would cause her to get ill or at the very least uncomfortable.
