    Default Isn't it funny...

    Just thinking how funny it is that we act so different when something happens to our dogs compared to when it happens to another human.

    If my dogs are sick and vomit, I'm happy to clean it up without a second thought and am hardly ever grossed out, yet when my partner stumbled home after the work christmas party at 3am this morning and covered my bathroom with rum-spew, I spent about 30 minutes gagging and I didn't even go near it! When in reality, whatever the dogs have eaten is probably a lot grosser than some party pies and alcohol

    Same as when we're at the park and the dogs go to the toilet, nothing gross about picking it up with a plastic bag but when a human goes, it's hard to even go in the bathroom afterwards!

    You're so right KM ! Spew is a really big one of mine....people vomit = eeeewwweee *gag* then usually throw up myself.
    The dogs do and meh *shrugs shoulders* Except then I end worrying about 'why' they threw up. the dogs not humans

    Funny is an understatement..
    If my OH pooped on the lawn I would put him up on Gumtree for re-homing!

    I'm with you there Choppa... My boy's a chucker so I'm constantly looking closely at what he might have snabbled up when I wasn't looking... Different story with the daughter I usually dry retching whilst holding her hair back...

    Tonight it was a few of his cousin's dog biscuits... He never learns that these are not good for him

    I wonder sometimes what other poor 'dogless' souls think of us as we intently sift through our dogs vomit......and even the poo when needed

    I'm the same with injuries too.. Any animal injury and I'm right there, prodding around, seeing what I can do but as soon as there is a bit of blood, or anything broken on a human, I get very queasy. And injections are the same, no issues giving them to animals/watching but can't stand humans getting them!

    Look what I had to deal with the other day (probably not a good idea to open if you have a weak stomach) and not a problem at all!

    I must just love animals more than any person!

    Wow, is the horse ok now?

    I'm the same. I cleaned up my cat's vomit with parts of a rat in it the other day without retching.

    Horse will be okay- just a long time to heal - it's not the kind of wound that can be stitched so needs to be left open. Hopefully no more body-slamming the stable of a night time!!

    Rat-vomit does sound pretty gross!

    'Kristy.Maree' - thank you for the thread - am enjoying it a lot !

    Yes - I also think it is very funny !

    That poor horse ! But it is surprising just quickly something like can heal !

    What about when your pup backs up to you to get grass or something else out of the backside area that they just can't manage all by themselves ?

    What do we do ? We just nonchalantly sort out problem - no big deal - while others around are looking at us with horror and looking pretty seedy !

    I must admit that that is probably the one I hate most. The poo dangling by a strand of hair (that's usually the cause in our case) and having to get it off so the poor dog can stop squatting.
