‘hope he doesn’t get any that the poison got. I’ll have to throw those in the garbage.

 


That is a great story and a good lesson about being responsible.

I let my Shep get to mice that had been poisoned and lost a litter of pups when they bled out.  Every time she nursed them they would start to bleed.  I watched the last pup go and spent another six or eight weeks trying to figure out what caused it.  One day it hit me, she had been going under the house and I thought she was nesting.  She wasn’t she was eating dead mice.  It wasn’t enough to hurt her but newborn pups got enough from her milk to kill the whole litter.  I cried.

Anyway, let that be a lesson to anyone with ears.
