Dog Runs Away, Finds Weed, Gets High

Dog Runs Away, Finds Weed, Gets High

By Robert Paul Reyes


"A dog that ran off from its owner in Seattle`s Seward Park found and ate some marijuana and got high. Owner Jen Nestor Waddell told KING-TV the 11-year-old black Lab mix named Jack was `just stoned` May 12 after they returned home from the park. The dog`s eyes glossed over and he had trouble walking.

The vet said Jack had swallowed a large amount of dried, harvested marijuana. After some medication to induce vomiting and a night of rest Jack was back to normal." The Associated Press

Poor Jack, with his glossy eyes he must have been a dead ringer for Snoop Dogg.

If my dogs find any weed when I take them for a walk in the park, I will make sure they don`t ingest any of it. As a responsible pet owner and a good citizen, I would take the stash home with me. I`m not saying I would smoke any of the herb, let`s just say I would have to make a trip to the supermarket to stock up on munchies.

I wonder if the pooch ripped open a bag of Doritos when he got home from the vet.

An old dog like Jack is slow and mellow, the last thing he needs is to munch on some weed. I`m glad he survived his adventure, and is back to normal.
