    Pumice stones are NOT poisonous, in case you want to know...UGH

    Today, the little bugger grabbed a new pumice stone (with plastic on it) and proceeded to munch on it whilst I was on the toilet, ya know, couldn't quite get up yet, couldn't get to her or it right away....
    when I did, she had taken a hamster-size chomp out of the pumice stone, and was spitting the little pieces of rock out of her mouth - I fished a chunk out of her mouth, then started to think, OMG, what if it's poisonous?
    I called NJ Poison Control...they said it's not.
    She's upstairs giving me heck right now so I gotta go , but just so all of you know how MY day has been going...
    and today's a NO NAP day, too.
    ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    Well, I suppose that IS good to know.

    I used to laugh when a dog I knew used to eat stones. Couldn't figure it out. Hey, maybe they know something we don't know?

    I would imagine, though, that it didn't taste too good...

    I think I remember learning about some animal (maybe it was a fish???) that swallowed stones. The stones stayed in the stomach and helped to digest its other food. Maybe that's what Mimi had in mind???

    Oh girl. LOL! You definetely have your hands full! It seems I'm always reading "Mimi" stories!

    I'm glad it wasn't poisonous. They are fast little things, aren't they???
