This weeks true story is one that I probably shouldn't share as I am mortified by it every time it gets brought up, but hey, fairs fair right? Most of my stories have been about other people so this week is my most embarrassing moment.

Before I met my husband I was dating and living with a boyfriend. We shared a dog together. An albino boxer that we named Cain. Boxers are a hyper breed as it is and need constant attention and affection. That said, Cain was all those things but intensified by 10! Seriously, he was awful! Ornry through and through. If there was something to get into he'd find it and tear it apart.

So one day I left for work. An 8 hour shift and I wouldnt be home until 8pm or after that night.
I walk in the door to find our livingroom trash can knocked over and trash scattered everywhere! Okay, not unusual so far for a dog but it gets better.

A night or two later when I get home from work I see my ususally high strung bouncing off the walls dog laying in one spot. And he didnt even move when I walked in the door? Something was off. So I go over to him and start petting him. He got up but was sluggish for the rest of the night. Well around midnight that night, we noticed Cain couldnt sit up on his own let alone barely walk.

So we took Cain to an emergency midnight visit with his vet. (Not cheap by the way) The doctor checked him over and took xrays. He had eaten something that the doctor said that he could not pass and would require surgery. So we left Cain in his care and checked back the next morning.

Here comes the embarrassing part. The thing that he had eaten....it was a tampon! I had cleaned out my purse the night before he knocked it over and got into it! The tampon had expanded in his stomach, sucking up all his nutrients so he was severely dehydrated and hungry! I dont think I have ever been redder! So for the next few months I had to live with people asking me how our bloodhound was doing! My face is still red typing this and I'm debating deleting this and typing up a new story!

Okay, so there it is. LOL, my embarrassing moment for you all to get a kick out of! I hope you did and I really hope that I'll be reading some of your embarrassing moments on True Story Tuesdays too!

Oh it was awful! I still cant believe it actually happened! Needless to say, I have not cleaned out my purse in the livingroom since, lol! He ended up taking Cain. Sadly he had to be put down a few years ago. I now have a very well mannered yellow lab, daisy!

Oh man! That is embarrassing, but in the grand scheme of things, I'm sure the vet has seen worse. No worries!

Not embarrassing for you as much as for the dog!!! That is unbelieveable, but true...dogs usually eat anthing! WoW!

That is a great tell on yourself story...I can't begin to tell you of the thoughts that are racing around in my head... LOL

Butt!!!! I will be nice, cause Rach and Pam D and Lisa and the gang will probably be checking in, and I am not going to give them any more ammo to harass me with...

Thanks for linking up...

Nevermind that Mr. Daddy - he's on a kick to embarrass me no matter what :)

And I want to know what Jessica knows about what else that dog did!

That is a perfect True Story Tuesday post! I know it's embarrassing (have you seen my blog lately, I'm the queen of self-humiliation, ha ha)... but that storry just rocked! Not your fault the dog got a bit too curious!

I think I remember once on Angie's blog from Bring The Rain - she said her daughter wallpapered her closet with pantyliners when she was showing her guests around her new house... how's that for a shock??? :)

Have a great day and thanks for linking up! It was hilarious!
