We have a winner!
Drewbie came up the stairs shaking his head.
“Someone ate my mummified fruit bat!”, he exclaimed. Drewbie was holding out a rectangular empty tin box.
Dad stared at him for a moment, a look of incomprehension on his face.
“Your fruit bat”, asked Dad incredulously. “Someone ate your mummified fruit bat?”
“Yeah. Lynn gave it to me when she came back from that biology trip.”
A smile started to creep to the corners of Dad’s lips. Dad turned to Mongo and said, “Oh buddy, you really will eat anything won’t you.” And then Dad dissolved into a laughter so hard he could not breathe, as poor Drewbie stood there holding his empty bat tin.
Mongo cringed his way into a corner when he saw the tin. It was clear that Drewbie was never going to get his bat back.
Apparently, fruit bats are very digestible, so there was not even any remains in the poop in the back yard.
If your dog has ever eaten something more exotic than this, please feel free to leave a comment.
