Today, Wrigley got into a trash can and ate one of those plastic shavers. Not the whole thing, mind you. Just the razor part! Bill caught him seconds later and tried to grab down his throat to retrieve it, but to no avail. I tried, too.

We have given him some bread and rice and do not know what else to do but sit and pray that Wrigley will be okay. Wrigley is 15 months old and he has already eaten so many things that should not go through a puppy's system. Whole socks, baby back ribs bones and countless dog toy parts have made their way through this strong little (well, 80 pound) puppy.

Say a little prayer and keep your fingers crossed for Wrigley tonight!

Dogs are very resilient. I'm sure it made it down to his stomach - I think the throat is the bad area. Good luck

Oh, dang! I hope he is OK. One of mine chewed up a glass ball from the tree but I don't think he swallowed anything. I did the same thing, fed him lots of soft foods to hopefully wrap any shards up. He seems OK. This is the same little guy (10-11 lbs) who ate a rabbit pelt (about 15-18 inches square, the WHOLE thing!) and pooped white furry stuff for a couple days! They ARE resilient!!
