Note to self no. 02: Don’t leave pins on the floor. Your puppy might find it, eat it, and need urgant surgery.

My poor dog Ipa have a habit of eating anything she comes across, and I do mean ANYTHING! Here is a small list of some of the things I have dug out of her mouth: A live mouse, a very dead bird, a tampon left on the sidewalk (…), numerous of used gums, rocks, and a couple of cigarettes.

Knowing all of this I really should have been more careful when using my pins, because my little furbaby came across a stray pin and figured she would eat it.

To make a long story short, she ended up needing surgery to remove her pin. I was worried sick, and felt terribly for being so sloppy with my sewing supplies. But luckily she will recover fully, and after a few days she’ll be ready to go out looking for more weird stuff to put in her mouth. Rest assure there will be no more pins on my floors!
