The next day, Vito very uncharacteristically had an accident in the basement of our tiny first house (it was under 500 total sq feet). When we woke up, we could "smell" something had happened. Mrs. Bear went down into the basement and all of a sudden, I hear her exicted and running back up the stairs proclaiming "Look at what I found"........On top of the pile was the Blue Star Lindy stone she had realized she had lost the day before. Apparently, the stone fell out somewhere in the house and Vito ate it.
Had she gone outside to take care of business, we likely would have never found the stone. Its almost as if Vito knew she had to leave it where we would have to look at and deal with the pile. Mrs. Bear actually grabbed the stone out of the pile bare handed and was carrying it when she came racing back up the stairs.
When we took it to the Jewelers for the repair, as the jeweler was remounting the stone in the ring, we told him what had happened. He said he had had other customers who's dogs had swallowed valuable pieces of jewellery and later recovered them. The other amazing thing about Vito's processing of the stone was it was on top of the pile. Had it been near the bottom, chances are it would have never been noticed and simply scooped up and thrown away.
I guess we just never know what our canine kids are going to consume and process....... A friend from NYC called us one weekend as their Rottweiler had eaten a beach towel and was starting to pass it. The towel was partially hanging out the exit port and the guy wasn't sure if he should try to pull it out or what he should do. I told him to take the dog to the vet and have a professional "handle it" pun intended.......the dog did just fine and avoided eating beach towels after that, but he ate a lot of other summer season items including flip flops, etc.
