Default Our Thanksgiving visit with family

We had the pleasure of visiting with family in Charlotte NC for Thanksgiving. Simcha was really very well behaved on the 250 mile trip, plus overnight stays Thursday and Friday night - great with our son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren.

Well, there was one notable exception. On Friday, we went shopping at Trader Joe's. We did get a package of Beef Recipe Rolls, which were definitely doggy-licious. Simcha got a special treat of about 1/3 of one of the rolls. When we took the kids out to dinner, we left Simcha in the laundry, along with a zipped up cloth bag containing the remaining 9 2/3 rolls. Somehow, our little sweetheart managed to pull out that cloth bag, chew through the zipper and remove the package of beef rolls. He consumed 4 of them. That's right, 4 ounces of beef rolls vanished into his tummy. For the record, Simcha's body weight is about 13 lbs., and he normally has 1/2 cup of Nutro kibble twice daily.

I will spare the graphic details, but his Saturday poops definitely deserved a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. By Sunday afternoon, he finally returned to normal, and his energy levels likewise returned to normal. I suppose we are fortunate he did not eat to the point of being seriously ill.

In case you might be curious, I have attached a family portrait, taken on Thanksgiving day, before the Beef Roll Incident. Present are: Ruth, Simcha, Joe, Sam, Sophie.

That is a lovely family portrait! What a lucky pup to have such a loving family.

Glad you had such a nice time. Poor Simcha, a zipped up bag is really no barrier to a determined pup when it comes to yummy beef rolls! Good that he was back to normal quickly!

Simcha, you little trouble maker!

I'm glad you all enjoyed your time together! Your granddaughter looks just like Ruth. Stunning photo.
