On Friday night I came home after having my hair done. Mike greeted me at the door with, "Romeo threw up and Elvis threw up twice." Since I had taken the pugs to the park that afternoon and they had foraged in the woods, it wasn't a surprise. The pugs go off leash in the park every day. They don't always go up into the wooded area, but on Friday afternoon they had spent some quality time there. I don't go in after them because the woods are full of poison ivy.
We took them outside in case they had to throw up again. That's when I noticed that both Elvis and Romeo were swaying back and forth in an odd manner. I called my dog expert friend Cindy who agreed that it wasn't normal and off to the veterinary hospital we went.

Both the vet tech and the veterinarian offered us the same diagnosis, "Was is possible that Romeo and Elvis had ingested marijuana?" Really, the pugs were stoned? Well that explained why they were acting like drunken sailors. Sure, it was possible. The local teenagers party in the park at night, so it was likely they had left the pugs a little present. The vet explained that even a tiny bit, like the end of a joint would have been enough. (Please note that the marijuana was NOT at our house).

Don't let your poochies (or kitties) eat marijuana!
Pugs and kisses,
