Just a quick update on Brynn.
Brynn ingested approximately 4 ounces of cocoa powder in addition to 2-4 oz. of dark chocolate chips (she weighs 34 lbs). I found the following table that can be used as a rough guide to assess if the amount of chocolate consumed by a dog is likely to pose a serious risk.
With the exception of continued excessive urination (she has peed on our bed twice - yes, TWICE!) she seems to be recovering without incident and finally starting to act 'normal'. Well, as normal as a tri-colored monkey can act. The vet cleared her for normal activities & diet.
Today we worked sheep at Fido's. I got in a little over my head, tripped over a water bucket, and almost broke my neck, but Brynn was amazing. Bonnie is going to be the death of me. Beth was a pleasure. John worked Gryff again this time our friend Cindy went out in the field with him and gave him some excellent pointers.
Later we went over to Cindy's house where she took some fantastic pictures of all the dogs.
Brynn, healthy happy and chocolate free - but I swear her brown is just a tad darker.
