Bailey, the canine trash compactor

Things Bailey has eaten in her lifetime (so far):

  • A kitchen floor (in a rental unit!)
  • Numerous toys
  • A pin cushion with the pins still in it
  • A hairbrush
  • Shoes
  • Sand (this is the only thing so far that has required emergency surgery)
  • 1.5 squirrels
  • Bugs
  • Tomato plants
  • Maybe a bird (she was sitting in a pile of feathers with a couple hanging from her mouth...the evidence points to bird snack)
  • Human thyroid medication
  • A Thermacare heat wrap

Things Bailey has eaten in the past two weeks alone:
  • Tissues
  • 2 loaves of bread
  • My razor
  • 2 stuffed toys
  • A rawhide bone that had been buried for quite some time (the bone's remains have since been buried in my underwear drawer in the closet...yes, that was her choice, not mine)
  • 3 metal tips for decorating cakes (don't tell my mom - these were borrowed from her!)

You would think that by the age of 11, some of this would have settled down.  You would think I didn't feed her.  I'm afraid she missed her calling as a sword swallower and performing on "America's Got Talent". We could have been millionaires instead of spending small fortunes at the vet!

I still love her though....
