There’s been a lot of stress in the Wren Casa lately, which is unfortunate considering Mojo is the poster pup for Canine Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
Any stress can give him a case of “the loosies.” It can be good stress (a doggy play date) or bad stress (a trip to the vet) but heaven forbid it’s a really big stress, because we’re going to need a whole case of baby wipes to clean up afterwards.
In fact, I’ve been wondering if Mojo’s trigger-happy intestinal tract might actually be an integral part of the Bulldog Defense System:
HOME INVADER: Bwa ha! I’ve broken in and will now pillage this house!
HOME INVADER: Eeww… what’s that smell? What did I just step in? GROSS! Aw… forget it! I’ll go pillage the neighbor’s house, instead!
Yup, once those pipes start evacuating, not much will stop the flow.
And lately even the old standby of boiled rice seemed to have lost its effectiveness on Mojo, which is why canned pumpkin has become one of our most valuable kitchen staples.
Somehow, this stuff has the same effect on an erupting bulldog digestive system that a brick wall has on a speeding marshmallow: it stops it cold, no fuss, no muss.
You heard me: instant intestinal stoppage—and in a bulldog household, that kind of guarantee is worth its weight in gold, or at the very least, in liver treats, considering how Mojo loves the stuff.
