#4546 - 12/27/02 09:26 AM Peppy in the mouth of my DOG!!
Anonymous
Unregistered


It was the worst Christmas Eve night ever!!! I was in bed feeling alittle under the whether and i told my boyfriend to feed the gliders for me. He said Fine. When I feed the gliders, I always want to take them out of thier pouch so they can play and eat. Well I take the pouch away from the family cause if it was up to them they can sleep 24/7. I dont take Peppy or Moose out of thier pouch because I know they go out of thier pouch to eat. Well my boyfriend didnt know this and while he was taking Peppy and Moose out of thier pouch, Peppy made a glide for it right into Vesta's MOUTH!!!!
I was horrible. I led out a BIG scream and got Vesta and was shaking her so she can let go of Peppy. Poor guy was screaming in her mouth. I was so scared and crying to add to the drama. I kicked Vesta out of the room so i can help Peppy. Fortunalty he came out OK! All he had was a bloody nose. He was pretty shook up. He was sniflying alot and was walking like a vibrating toy. I was so scared. I took him in my hands to see if he was ok. No broken bones, no bloody gashes.
I left him in with his mate for a couple of days so he can calm down. He's fine now, alittle sniffles but nothing to be worried about.
What an awful experience. This taught me a great lesson. <img border="0" alt="heart" title="" src="graemlins/heartpump.gif" />

OMG - what a terrifying experience -for you and for Peppy! The poor dog was probably a bit dumfounded also - glider gliding into his mouth! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="images/icons/shocked.gif" /> That's so weird. I'm very glad everything worked out and I hope poor Peppy's nose is on the mend! <img border="0" alt="glider" title="" src="graemlins/littleglider.gif" />

I would say that Vesta is a great dog, I mean she could have run off with Peppy in her mouth. Thank God all is ok with Peppy and hope his wittle nose heals fast <img border="0" alt="heart" title="" src="graemlins/heartpump.gif" />

WOW! I'm so glad that everyone made it through this experience safely. Vesta probably didn't even realize what happened!

Safe and sound thank god. Vesta didnt know what she was doing. Animal instinct i guess. Its ok. Thank god she didnt kill him. She really is a good dog. She probably thought it was one of her toys. Thankfully she didnt bite down. Her mouth was open when he was in there i forced her mouth open so she can let him go. What a week <img border="0" alt="shakehead" title="" src="graemlins/shakehead.gif" />

Whoa Monique,
That made my heart stand still, and i'm glad he was just shook up and nothing more.
I had a similar experience 4 month back when Twinkles was still alive, he jumped out one day and i went to catch him, and my dog Conner caught him and had him in his mouth as well.
Like you i thought he'd be done for, but Twinkles (who was killed by a neighbors cat, who i was taking care of) was completely unhurt.
I guess Connor was trying to help me catch him, and just held him, but didn't bite him.
I was shocked and amazed, and to this day don't know what to think.

I too was completely shook up and feared the worst. I was probably more scared than Twinkles, it didn't seem to have him as upset as i was.
He never got any diahrrea or any signs that he was traumatized, he acted like nothing major had happened.
He really tripped me out.

I miss him so much.

Tanja

Im so sorry to hear about Twinkles Tanja. I guess dogs are truely man's best friend. Vesta choose not to run away with him. If it was one of thier pouches...god forbid i take that away from her. She'll start growling and putting all her weight on it. What a dumb head <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" />

Update on Peppy!

Peppy is doing great. After his advanture with Vesta i let him rest for a couple of days before I handled him again. I had playtime with him the other day and he was chirping like crazy. Moose and Peppy were going wild in the bathroom with me. It was so great. I am so happy he got through this fine. <img border="0" alt="jump" title="" src="graemlins/multi.gif" />

Monique, I'm so glad Peppy is doing well, you should give Vesta lots of hugs and doggie treats. I wasn't so lucky when my puppy got my Petrie a few months ago, he played him to death. Now I closed all escape routes out of the glider room and no dogs allowed in. <img border="0" alt="[Glider Angel]" title="" src="graemlins/gliderangel.gif" />
