I recently put mouse poison in the classroom behind the storage walls and as I was sewing up there one night this week, I saw Faye go back there. I didn’t think a thing of it until 15 minutes later when I walked over there and the poison tray was completely empty. Both Faye and Telly were there in the classroom but neither one would admit to eating the poison. I got another full box of mouse poison and set it down on the floor and Faye went right for it and even wanted to take a lick. We flew into action with the hydrogen peroxide and the internet. Faye is a tough cookie to handle and when I couldn’t get enough peroxide down her throat to make her throw up, I had to call the vet. He agreed to meet me at the clinic where he forced peroxide down the throats of both Faye and Telly. No vomiting! He gave them more peroxide. Still no vomiting so he put a heaping tablespoon of salt on the back of their tongues and that did it. I almost felt guilty when there were no mouse poison pellets in the vomit because I had asked the vet to come to the clinic at 10 pm! But we all agreed, it’s better to be safe than sorry. My poor doggies! Such tummy aches and how will I ever get them into that clinic again? It’s a mystery where all that mouse poison went because it had been only a week since I put it out and I know we don’t have a herd of mice that big!
It’s always something around here, isn’t it?
How about a good book? Here are 2 book recommendations from a reader:
“Snow Hunters” by Paul Yoon
“The Gravity of Birds” by Tracy Guzeman
Since we’ve had such an overwhelming response to the Free Online Quilt Sampler, we have decided to do it again next year. I hope to start sewing over Thanksgiving.
Also, don’t forget the 100 Bolt Sale online or in the store.
The shop will be closed November 28, 29, 30, December 1 and 2 for Thanksgiving.
