Dear little Fizz is a real sweetie but one very naughty habit is stealing food and unfortunately this caused a lot of panic and anguish last Thursday.At some point I'm still not sure when but I think it was when I was putting Ailish to bed and was reading her bedtime storey, Fizz crept into my bedroom and managed to open the wardrobe door pull out a pile of clothes ,unwrap two plastic bags and eat some chocolate. It was a whole bag of little snowmen that I had bought for the children's advent calendars(now it's not often that I'm this organised perhaps I had better go back to last minute shopping!!).We rushed her to the vet where she was put on a drip and kept in overnight. She responded well and I was able to collect her the following morning although we had a few days of very unpleasant vomiting and diarrhoea while her little body dealt with the effects of too much chocolate.I am happy to say she has made a full recovery and no she hasn't learnt her lesson and still tries to get into any cupboard that might contain food.I'm sure you are all aware of the dangers of chocolate and dogs but I have been surprised at the amount of people that have said they regularly give their dogs chocolate and I would hate for anybody to go through what we went through last week.
