My little bratty girl came flyin in the room a min ago and she had been in the other family room by herself. Well that is just weird so i knew something was up.
Went out there looked around, found a cup that earlier had a little milk in it, and NOW has NONE. The little fart leaned over the arm of the couch and sipped out of the cup that was on the end table and drank it. And she didn't even knock the cup over!!! Urgh. I am hoping this won't upset her tummy, but if it does that's what she gets! :mad:

im sure she will be ok my german shepard done it before and as far as i remember she was fine.

heres something i found online about it
Some dogs have absolutely no problem digesting dairy products. Others experience acute intestinal symptoms… like gas, diarrhea or vomiting.

It all comes down to how your dog handles a specific nutrient found in milk… a nutrient known as lactose.

I know you’ve probably heard of lactose before… but what exactly is it?

Well, lactose is actually a kind of sugar… not just one single sugar… but two sugar molecules chemically linked together.

In order for a dog to digest milk… the lactose must first be broken apart into its two more basic… and easy-to-absorb… sugars.

And that’s just it. You see, a dog’s body must be able to produce its own special lactose-splitting enzyme… an enzyme known as lactase.

And that’s one thing very few dogs can reliably do.

Right-o. Each doggie will handle it differently. :) Leila has an iron tummy though so I'm betting she won't bat an eye about it! (Unless it was gross, old, spoiled milk that you have been leaving out since Thanksgiving!) ;)

And for what it's worth, my pups like milk... and have never had any ill effects!

She'll be OK might give her the squirts though. Trigger did that w/ a bowl of cereal (cocoa puff milk no less) and he was fine, they are brats!
