9:33 pm on Friday, September 21, 2012 First of all she is a trained search and rescue dog she likes to explore . Well she found out how to open my refrigerator and freezer. Well she decided to have a little party and eat Steaks chicken and pork . Well since its not cook just like any thing else she is sick . She was placed in her cage so the kitchen could get cleaned up. So before you open your mouth and call to have my dog checked get the facts . She didn't want to be in her cage see open mouth insert foot .

omg, I read this comment the other day was laughing so hard. In that callers defense... would you have been upset if someone had broken into your house and was hurting your dog and they called? still pretty funny... I mean, I'm sure you find no humor in cleaning up the mess, dealing with a sick dog and having to explain yourself to the cops, but hey, at least you got a funny story now.
