This sassy little thing is almost 2! 🐶
Aspen was a rescue, so we don’t know exactly when her birthday is. But since @rylan.hess and I aren’t huge fans of Valentine’s Day, we decided to make her birthday on February 14 to give us a reason to celebrate! 🎉
📷: When she was about 4 months old we took Aspen to the Bonneville salt flats in Utah. The flats were covered in water, so we got out and tromped around in it for a bit. 💧 Later that night, she was acting like a lunatic, growling at us and running all over the place. So we did what anyone would do in a crisis: turned to #doctorgoogle ☝🏼aaaaand turns out that salt is actually a neurotoxin to dogs in large amounts. #parentfail Luckily I had some @bulletproof activated charcoal on hand, so we mixed it into some peanut butter and fed it to her. Within an hour, she was back to her normal happy self!
Moral of the story: Don’t let your dogs play around in salt water. 🙈But if they do, make sure you have some activated charcoal capsules on hand!
