Yes you read that correctly. My dog tried to commit suicide with yogurt.
First of all, have you met Henry? He's the fluffy little guy who makes an appearance on my Instagram all the time. Here are photos to refresh your memory.
Henry is one of the most opinionated, dramatic dogs I have ever met. He sings. He manipulates Jared and me. But most of all, Henry is very committed to his culinary tastes. He LOVES pickles, apples, bananas, ice cream and peanut butter more than anything in the world.
The other day I was in the grocery store and saw this in the Fresh Pet section:
When I got the box out of the grocery bag, Henry seemed to know the treats were for him. He got all excited and started doing his tricks, hoping one of them would impress me enough to give him a treat. I opened one of the containers and had a fleeting thought: these might be too big for a six-pound dog. But I quickly dismissed it, put the Wag-Gurt in a dish and gave it to Henry.
Henry, of course, went to town. I started doing other things since he seemed occupied. What seemed like a few minutes later, I looked back at Henry and he was shaking uncontrollably, like he was having a seizure! I grew up with a poodle who had epilepsy, so I was scared out of my mind. I ran over to him and he was ice cold. His little feet were like tiny, furry ice cubes. The Wag-Gurt was almost gone, but he still tried to get at it like a crack addict when I took it away.
Turns out, Henry almost gave himself hypothermia from eating too much of the cold Wag-Gurt! I had to wrap him in a blanket to keep him warm for thirty minutes. Good God almighty! What kind of dog almost kills himself from eating frozen yogurt???
Henry. That's who. As I said, he's committed.
