    Default Disrupted Sleep: My Newfie Jumped Through My Window Last Night!

    After a big weekend, I was looking forward to pleasnt night's sleep. I left my Newfie, George outside to sleep as it was much cooler than in the house and as you can imagine he struggles with the heat.

    My bedroom window is broken at the moment and we're waiting for the builder to order in parts, so currently I have to wedge it open with a book.

    In the middle of the night I hear a big commotion and realize that George is in my bedroom absolutely panicked: crying and howling beside himself. Initially I thought he had jumped through the window and knocked out the book, causing the window to fall on him gilletine style! Then I saw that the window was still being held open by the book. Next I realized his whole snout looked swollen and thought he must have been bitten by something. Then I reached in his mouth and pulled out the remains of a giant rawhide bone he had gotten for Christmas. If had been lodged between the back of his bottom teeth and the back of his throat.

    I still don't know how he jumped up and through the window given that it's about a meter off the ground and was only about 30cm open (given that this is a 60kilo dog). Not only that, but he's jump also cleared my glass bedside table that stands below the window! I'm glad he knew where to get help but hate to think what would have happened if the window was closed or he had knocked the book out!

    Scary.

    Now you know why I don't let Frosty have the big rawhide bone unsupervised any more - or any other bones. Sad. Too good at swallowing big chunks of things that don't digest well. And then there's always the possibility of inhaling stuff or it getting stuck where it shouldn't.

    Ouch! Glad that George is ok, I wonder how he managed to jump in. That would have scared the hell out of me.

    OMG NN, that would have shook the hell out of me!
    How oh how did George get through that and leave the book intact???
    Got me. My god he's clever though!

    I love giving dogs massive raw bones, marrow are my preference, and I do mean massive (lol), but learnt to always make sure they are removed once unsupervised.darling, I hope George is okay, and you too. What a shock it would have been for both of you.

    Yeah we're both all good. George and I have had a big discussion today and agreed that neither of us wants to panic the other like that again

    I'm just glad that it didn't happen when I was at work! I feel terrible, I have always left him with bones to occupy him while I'm out. Now I know never to do that again!

    Glad George is OK, How awful for the poor fella. I am, and probably always will be, totally paranoid about bones. I do give them to Jenna but not often and I am constantly checking that she is alright with it.

    I know I'm probably a bit OTT but I have a real chocking phobia. I've always been the same with my kids too. If anyone gives them a hard sweet or lollipop I'm like "Chobble it now, don't suck". And don't get me started on the ball shaped lollipops. Arrgghh, I have nightmares just thinking about them.
