My poodles will eat a good Sock!! and a bad one..
I raise standard poodles they are the love of my life. So much fun so much company they know what I'm thinking before I do it seems.
They have impeccable manners and will wait by the door for permission to enter or exit they do not jump up on you and all jump thru the hula hoop take a bow count to 10 know 1+1 = 2 barks now not all of them know all things but together we put on a pretty good show for school career day the local wire-grass festival, and various parades as they all pull the sulky cart.
Such an intelligent lot they will do anything for a treat. When they were younger I have had to search the yard at midnight for the remote control, they once buried my watch for 3 days then brought it back and laid it at my feet. I have to admit most of this was Clyde.
But let me clue you in on the" Bonnie Girl" I haven't a clue what it is about a sock, but you cannot ever just stick them in your shoes and expect to find them upon your return. Thank goodness the past year hasn't been real bad prior to that it was a weekly occurrence. At first I thought I was losing them in the "hose-zone" layer(washing machine or dryer) I soon found out where they were going.
One day I noticed Bonnie eating grass I had been watching them play thru the kitchen window they body slam one another, and they love to play keep away they run like the wind as soon as one gets close whoever has the toy will turn on a dime and give'm 9 cents change, and run in the other direction it is a sight to behold.
I noticed Bonnie had stopped playing it looked to me as if she would be sick I decided I better go check her out as I was walking up she began to be sick it was quite a putrid smell, and was very green like bile I thought oh dear me, so I got a baggy to take it with us to the vet, and as I picked it up I thought gee this looks just like a sock. Off to the vet we go, the vet comes out a few minutes later it is indeed a sock after some testing and 500.00 dollars later she is clear to go home.
Not once has she ever had an issue eating or going to the potty, but many is the time she will give you a recycled sock. The grandsons are small, and it is hard to make them understand the importance of the clothes hamper, and bonnie ever slick will sneak one and run.
This is very dangerous and can be life threatening. So if, you are missing sox and you have a standard poodle you might do well to visit your vet.
