Fly tying Christmas gifts you received in The Fly Tying Bench Posted December 30, 2020 · Report reply 17 hours ago, TSMcDougald said: Already posted pictures of my chistmas present in another thread. I did get another thing that I consider a christmas present. Our Golden Retriever managed to swallow four of the granddaughters pacifiers (we have no idea how he got them) and had emergency surgery on the 23rd to have them removed - three were in his stomach and one had made it to his small intestine. The christmas present part was we managed to come up with the money for the surgery on such short notice. He has been drugged up on pain meds since and as result is a lot less hyper. As an ER vet for the last 10 years, you have no idea how common that is. Especially in retrievers. I am convinced that a dog will eat anything. Underwear, socks, candles, money, jewelry, corn cobs, etc. A couple of weeks ago I had to remove a foot long fondue fork. How he swallowed that I don't know, but it was stretched from the cranial (front) end of his chest to his stomach. Dog did fine. Hope your Golden does well. They are great family pets.
