[Bo the Destructor who has the stomach of a goat]
Our dog, Bo, has eaten half of a hot tub.
A wooden hot tub.
Why he has not perforated his stomach yet I don't know. It's an animal medical mystery. Personally, I think he's a goat who was somehow born looking like a dog. We don't really know what Bo's parents were. He wandered into our yard the day before Thanksgiving two years ago, thin, dirty, and no collar. The vet said he was a six month puppy but that was before Bo ate our hot tub.
He's also eaten our wood privacy fence.
And there's no way to stop him from eating these things short of locking him in a cage 24/7. Which would be a pretty cruel thing to do. Sure, we'd be guaranteed that he wouldn't die from eating weird sh*t, but he'd also be stuck in a cage all the time and that's no way for a dog to live so we're just taking our chances
Check out the photos below where Bo has completely demolished an entire side of the huge hot tub. All that's left are a couple of gnawed-on boards. The rest got eaten.
We find all sorts of weird crap in Bo's crap. Like fabric (he eats furniture and stuffed animals), plastic (ditto), metal (ditto again), and unidentified objects that I really don't care to examine too closely.
The weird thing of it is, he's perfectly healthy. No constipation, no perforation, no vomiting or pooping blood. Lots of energy.
Sees the vet regularly and is always given a clean bill of health.
I'm tellin' you, he's a goat in dog's clothing.
