What the Dog Ate
Tanner? Well, he's not one to eat things like toys these days, thankfully. He does occasionally decide that abandoned food is clearly left for him to devour. He's enjoyed an entire pan of Rice Krispie Treats, a bowl of grapes (highly toxic to dogs), and countless slices of unattended pizza. Generally these occasions occur while we have company and that makes the solution even more 'fun' when our guests get to participate. We have a direct line to poison control and are very adept at handing out the Peroxide treatment :) Okay, I've purged (Yes, pun intended!). Now it's your turn!
Now allow me to share a quote from What the Dog Ate, by Jackie Bouchard:
The vet handed Maggie Baxter a plastic specimen bag containing a pair of size-tiny lavender thong panties extracted from her dog; but they were not hers. Or rather, they were hers now since she'd just paid $734 to have Dr. Carter surgically remove them from Kona's gut.

You can purchase e-copies at Amazon, iTunes, Barnes & Noble and Smashwords, and the book is also available in paperback at Amazon & CreateSpace.This is how Maggie Baxter, a practical, rule-following accountant, discovers that her husband of seventeen years is cheating on her. All her meticulous life plans are crushed. When he leaves her for the other woman, Maggie and her the-world-is-my-smorgasbord chocolate Lab, Kona, are left to put their lives back together. As Maggie begins to develop a Plan B for her life, she decides to be more like Kona. No, she's not going to sniff crotches and eat everything that isn't nailed down; rather she'll try to approach life with more ball-chasing abandon. Finding herself in situations where she begins to go through her usual over-analysis of the pros and cons, she stops and instead asks herself: What would Kona do? With Kona as her guru, Maggie begins her quest for tail-wagging joy."What the Dog Ate" is a funny, tender story of mending a broken heart and finding love and a new life right under your nose, with woman's best friend at your side. If you enjoyed Claire Cook's "Must Love Dogs" or Lolly Winston's "Good Grief," you'll love "What the Dog Ate" and be rooting for Maggie and Kona.
