Before I got my dog, I didn’t know how much a human could love an animal. My little dog, Monsieur, is now part of my life in the same way as a family member. I find myself thinking about him on a daily basis and I miss him whenever he’s not around. Alex says that Monsieur made him gentler and I can confirm it’s true.
A few days ago, Monsieur almost died (see photo on Instagram) when he went snooping around our studio where we keep a huge amount of dark chocolate. We had no clue, but he ate all of it. (Chocolate is extremely toxic for pets.)
Miraculously, Alex noticed and went straight to the vet where they induced vomiting over and over again. They said that with the (huge) amount of chocolate he ate, Monsieur would have been dead a few hours later.
He is now back to normal, happy and healthy. The experience made me want to cook healthy dog cookies for him. That way, I can spoil him without worrying about his health. 🙂
