Rocky Ending by Dexter

I eat rocks. There, I said it. How can something so satisfying be frowned upon?

I would have gotten away with it too, if Evil Witch Poop Detective wasn't so obsessed with my deposits. What kind of crazy person gives poop a little squeeze when they pick it up or pokes through it with a stick?

So here is what Momma discovered.

Oh look! A quarter. Maybe I will eat that too when she isn't looking.

Yes, my name is Dexter and I'm a rock eater.

Dexter done!

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

All I can add to this post, is to bark "Rock On Dexter!". Predictable I know, but wow, you surely do eat rocks!!

How long has it been since you ate your last rock?

Can you admit that you are powerless over your rock eating addiction?

Do you believe that a Higher power can restore you to rock-less sanity?

Admit to the Higher Power and others the exact nature of your rock-eating wrongs?

12 steps, my friend. 12 steps...

Dexter Dude...I cannot condone your habits, but applaud your honesty.


Reilly / Denny Cowspotdogs said...

Sounds to me like you were just trying to improve your mineral uptake - but yeah - the peeps do tend to frown on it a bit. Funny - birds are allowed to eat rocks - it helps break up their food in their gullets - oh wait - you don't have a gullet do you? BUT WAIT - aren't you a bird dog ??????

Molly The Wally said...

Hey Dexter , you are a rock star!
Best wishes Molly

Priscilla said...

You rock, Dexter!!!

Is it that delicious???

Sam said...

Be careful there - that sort of thing can land you at the V-E-T!

Rock on, little pup!


jen said...

Dexter!!! I am going to march right on over there and give you a spanking! No rock eating! Have you not read my posts about Leroy's obsession with eating rocks?
That's a big rock, lucky you have big intestines! Do not show this to Leroy or he will try yo do you one better:)

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Not good, Dexter - Mom says Lightning ingests the occasional rock too, but it can be a big worry. But we do love Molly the Wally's comment:)

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

Jake of Florida said...

We were going to say you are a rock star...but that clever response has already been spoken.

We do hope the 12-step program helps you overcome this dangerous addiction. We can think of so many other ways to panic our humans!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Laura, Lance, and Vito said...

Oh no! I know a few dogs who eat rocks obsessively and they have to be muzzled when outside now :( Don't make this your new thing Dexter!

Dexter, I can only think of your poor insides. You might want to consider a new hobby, just sayin

Niamh said...

Dexter -rocks do not taste that great. They are rocks, not treats. You will ruin your teeth and your tummy. This must stop. We are sure that your momma feeds you good food and has lots of chew toys for you to play with. Even Ambrose knows not to eat rocks.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Dude I hope it doesn't crunch up your insides!

Madi and Mom said...

Hi Dexter and Mango...Mom and I came over from Frankie's to read your post from yesterday...and lo and behold we nearly fell out of our chair reading today's first!! This is hilarious. I have heard Labs will eat anything now I believe it...can we say FIBER!!
Bravo Dexter and thank goodness it passed!!

Mom and I only blog, we love it and we love your post and we have never done FB or Twitter and never will.
Hugs Madi the Diva Cat.

Madi and Mom said...

PS I meant to tell you my sister cat (who was owned by my Uncle) Lucy once ate a penny. It would not had to be removed. Her vet had a very good sense of humor. When he gave her Dad the bill he said it will be $599.99...I kept the penny.

Mitch and Molly said...

We think you should try to break yourself of this habit, Dexter. That's an awfully big rock to be munching on! Wouldn't you prefer real food?

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

So what, exactly, draws you to rocks, Dexter? Is it their texture, or perhaps their taste? Do tell all!


scotsmad said...

careful, Dexter. If you eat rocks and try to swim, you'll sink!

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Howdy Dexter, can you eat as many rocks as you can fit in your tummy and then come over for a visit. Our drive way is getting really boggy and we need some more gravel/rocks to fix it up. If you could get Uncle Mango to eat some too that would be a great help. Thanks mate. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Sally Ann and Andy said...

Be careful Dexter! Maybe, you should attend Rock Eaters Anomous(I can't spell sorry).

Dexter.... be careful!
Those are not eatables!
Kisses and hugs

Rama's Mama said...

Oh no, not rocks! Uck! We's worried about your insides! Stop eetin' those! ~Rama

houndstooth said...

I'm sure you're just supplementing your diet with a few extra minerals! And if quarters start coming out in your, ahem, deposits, then she'll never stop following you around!


Jo's World said...

Hey Dexter Peewee, as a long time admirerer of yours, I am distressed to hear that you are eating rocks.

I would like for you to take this up with your Vet and see what his suggestions are. This CAN'T be good for you.


Sammie and Avalon said...

Yikes, Pea... can't believe you actually swallowed that rock (yeah a rock, not a pebble)down into your tummy and it went through your innards and then out the nether end without damaging you SOMEwhere. We are impressed and worried 'bout you!
Hugs xoxo

Hey Dex,
When I was a pup I used to eat gravel. Mom didn't even know sometimes because I tried to do it when she wasn't looking. Then I had to go to the vet and give him a sample of my poop. Wonder what he does with all the poop? Anyway, he told Mom I was eating stones and to stop me. She got rid of the gravel so I started eating walnuts in the shells. Then I broke my tooth and the Doctor said I had to stop eating walnut shells. What's a guy supposed to do for fun? I didn't want to stop, but one day when I picked up a walnut under the tree it had some really bad tasting stuff on it and I spit it out. I tried again, but they all tasted awful, so I quit.

Now I carry my ball everywhere to keep from picking up stones and walnuts. If I can do it, you can too.

Hey Dexter,
A couple of weeks ago I was on prednisone cuz I had a hot spot. Well I started eating rocks. Yep crunching them up and the throwing them up a little later. One night mom heard me crunch, crunch, crunching and got out of bed to take the rock away from me and I was DEADING A RAT!!! She took it away from me. Bit@h!! Anyway I haven't eaten a rock or a rat since I went off that dumb medacine..


Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Wow, your Momma puts your poop rocks on the peeps outdoor dining table! You really have a cool momma.

What Sky Portie said. Jed also cracked a tooth on a hard nut in the yard and got to have a root canal. Neither he nor mama enjoyed that very much. Maybe you could nibble on the grass instead?

Bassetmomma said...

Hey Dexter, can Freddie join your support group? LOL!

A Wonderful Dogs Life said...

Just remember what goes in must come out...Ouch.

Maybe you could find a hobby that is easier on your do have an awesome jump. Love that the new blog photo. I know you and Mango should have an agility show down.


Au and Target said...

Dex, you are one daft dog. Don't eat rocks; eat burgers!

Chester said...

Hi, I'm Chester and I am a rock eater too. Well, I just like to chew on 'em but I usually don't swallow much. I chewed on some broken off pieces of concrete the other day - that was a yummy diversion from the usual rock. Never ate a quarter but I betchya you and your poop detective mama would make a mint if'n you could make it come out 2 dimes and a nickel.

My Mom is fascinated by my poops - she always has to at the very least take a look at it. Every oncet in awhile she'll go diggin' for treasure. And they say WE need therapy just 'cuz of a little rock nibblin'! The nerve.

Woofs and rocky slobbers,
Chester ;0=)

Dex, Barticus eats sand with little pebbles! I think he's trying to fit in with the ducks!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

She squeezes your poop.

And you ate rocks.

And we thought our house was nuts!!

garthriley said...

Wow. And I thought I was such a bad*** eating poop and sticks and an occasional box. I'm in awe of you, man.


Anonymous said...

BOL! Oh Dexter, your Mom actually pokes and shmooshes your poops??? Well I guess if I pooped $ my Mom would too BOL! Maybe yours should take you on walkies through gold mines. Add some value to your rock collection ;) Hardy Har Har

Waggin at ya,

Moose said...

What??? I have a whole yar of rocks and I never tried one! Are they good? I am gonna have to try some!

Blueberry's human said...

Haha!! I used to find my ear plugs in my dog's poop. I often thought of rinsing them off and using them again, but decided not to. I wore them because my dog Shadow had a snore like I could not believe.
