How to Give Mom High Blood Presure

Well, I managed to get in trouble again. Mom says I am gonna give her high blood presure and I am definitly helping her keep the Pepsid people in business. You see, Dad let me and Missy out in the morning (unsupervised). Mom usually takes us out, and I am on a leash. But......... Dad didn't follow the rules this time and let me out loose. Mom just wanted to wash her face and wake up. Well, when she came in the kitchen and asked where we were and Dad told her, she came out looking for us. Of course, Missy was at the back door waiting. Me, I was coming along, slowly and then went to grab a few bites of grass. Mom knew something was up. She got me in and of course asked "what did you do?" Like I'm gonna answer. She fixed our breakfast, which is our usual serving of cherrios and sliced bannana. I didn't want any. She knew that was not right because I always want my cherrios and bannana. I didn't even want a biscut.
Well, she went outside to see if there was something I could have gotten into. And look what she found. I think she was gonna have a heart attack. First she told Dad he is to never, never, never let me outside unsupervised and not on my leash ... ever. She said some other stuff, but I'm not gonna repeat that. Boy was she mad. First she looked on the internet and of couse she could not find anything on these particular yellow mushrooms. Then she got on the phone and call my favorite place to go. The vet. She explained that there were these two yellow mushrooms in the back yard, and described them (you should have heard that explanation) and one had a bite missing. The vet told her that those were not bad ones, but that I still should not eat them and that I would probably have an upset tummy and that she could bring me in if she wanted, but was sure it was okay. And I could have half a Pepsid.
Well, I was checked out anyway and I'm okay. My vet's office manager said that I am now the official "dennis the menace" of their office because of all the things I get into. With all the rain we have been having the front yard is full of some really strange looking mushrooms and one side of the yard had those two yellow mushrooms. The vet told her that I was okay and not to let me eat any more mushrooms. I really didn't mean to do anything bad. I'm just busy when I'm outside checking things out. And for some reason, I have to taste it. So now THE RULE IS Mom goes with me outside and I'm on a nice 7 foot leash and she makes sure I don't get into anything. She goes outside before me and Missy and checks the yard for anything and everything.
When I came home, I rested by Missy with fox and was good all day. I promised Mom I would not eat something like that again. I wonder if she thinks the catching of the bumble bee (I spit it out) and and jumping up and catching the bird incidents were not so bad. Yes I did. I jumped up and caught a bird in flight in the yard. I didn't know Mom could run that fast and holler at the same time. She tackled me, made me drop the bird and had to take that to the animal shelter.
So you pups be careful with all the rain if your have mushrooms growing in your yard. Don't eat them. You could get very sick. Mom read that some of them are poison. So be extra careful! Please.

We sometimes get mushrooms in our yard too. Dad keeps an eye out for them and whenever he sees them he digs them up. We still eat the grass, but that's not too bad.

Glad you are going to be ok. Some muchrooms are VERY dangerous. Glad these weren't some of those!

Oh yes, we get mushrooms too. Mom won't let me near them. I am glad that you are ok from having ate one.

Gee, we're glad you are okay. I've never tried a mushroom and from what you wrote it is a good thing that I haven't. :) If I were you I would just play outside and then ask for a treat when you came back inside. Those are safe/yummy, especially the ones your Mom makes. :)

That's a good story and we're glad you're okay. I eat everything too. There are dead frogs on the road and Dad has had to pry a few out of my jaws. They taste like chicken!

My goodness Maya! Have you inherited the Joe genes for trouble? I'm sure your Mom is tired of bringing you to the vet's office!

Last Friday, Juneau got one of mommy's hair scrunchies & took off wif it. Mommy followed, actually chased, him all around the house. She caught him by the tail & before she could get it out of his mouth - yep, he swallowed it. He's been acting fine & eating & pooping. We're just waiting for him to pass it. Mommy said that this Sibe-puppy will keep those gray hairs popping out inspite of her getting them colored!!!! So she know just how yur mommy feels.
