quick update

I bet you didn’t think this update would be about my dog’s flatulence BUT it is.

So a sweet friend of mine just informed me that dogs are allergic to grapes and raisins, to the extent that they can die from ingesting to much.

Molly is happy and fine and far less gassy but I just wanted to share this information in case, like me, you think grapes pose a good opportunity-with their mass and spherical, aerodynamic bodies- to try to teach your dog to catch food in the air.


There is an article about this issue here.

And since blogs are better with pictures here’s one from this weekend:

The caption should read: “Anyone who was accidentally poisoned by their pet parents please raise your hand”


  1. It’s a good thing the Lord protects kids from grapes, Dimetapp, flaming kitchen towels, etc!!!

  2. My Sunday school teacher, John Politan, came within minutes of dying a couple of weeks ago…choking on a grape that they couldn’t dislodge. From now on only crushed grapes for me. Can Molly have malbec?
