First Time At The Fair

Monday, April 30, 2012

So, on Saturday we had quite an eventful day. We had decided to go to the local fair, and were fixing some lunch before we headed out of the door. I prepared us some grapes and realized we had a lot left over. I began to give a few to Rayne, and she just proceeded to toss them around on the ground. She ended up eating three, and I thought nothing of it. Something told me that maybe dogs weren't supposed to have grapes. So, in curiosity I googled it. Well low and behold, grapes and raisins cause kidney failure in dogs. So, now I am in a panic thinking that Rayne is going to DIE. I call the vet, and they confirm how serious it is. The Vet tells us to pour 2 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide into her mouth so she'll throw up the grapes. After giving it to her, we anxiously waited for her to vomit, which she did. Fur Mom Fail.. Talk about how horrible I felt the entire rest of the day that I almost killed our Fur baby. But, she really was a trooper and within 30 minutes she was playing with her toys again.

Do you remember THIS post, that I just wrote last Friday about waiting to have children? Yeah, I think God was trying to confirm my thoughts and tell me, you definitely don't need a baby and have a lot to learn first. 

On Saturday afternoon (after we made sure Rayne was ok), we decided to go to the local fair. We had been wanting to go on a carnival date for awhile, so when we heard about it we decided to go. The fair, was not what we were expecting, but we made the best out of it, and actually had a pretty good time! Joel and I were some of the only adults without kids, but that was okay. After buying some ride tickets we explored the petting zoo, got some ice cream, rode some rides, and watched a pig race. I took a lot of pictures, so enjoy below!

Last thing we did was watch the hilarious pig race... There were definitely some country folks at this event!

And we even brought our sweet puppy a present that Joel won at the Fair !

You mean this is for me? I will never let it go. 




I have the best parents ever!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend !!

  4. Such cute pics of Rayne! My fur baby has eaten a grape before and she is fine, thankfully about a week later I saw a Yahoo article of safe/unsafe foods for dogs so now I know grapes are unsafe ;)

  7. Glad to hear Rayne is okay. My cousin recently left some Decon on her table and her dogs ingested it. She did the whole peroxide thing and luckily they were fine. She was in utter panic mode though.

    The fair looks funny. I love little fairs!

  8. Baby Donkeys and Pigs = SOLD! I love those darn animals. Our N. AL State Fair here blows when it comes to live stock. They switch it out each day so if you go to visit you totally miss all the different animals. I always end up going when it's chickens and bunnies... while I love bunnies I have to say they are NO cow or pig in my book ;)

    I'm glad your little baby was OK - it's amazing the things dogs can't eat!!! I knew about grapes so I sort of cringed when I read you let her have one but was SO happy you goggled and helped her :) It's all about learning - it's good to trust your instincts!!!

  23. oh my goodness, so glad you thought it could be bad! i had no ideas they can't eat raisins and grapes. grapes are also one of the top chocking hazards for kids. i think i just won't buy them for several years after i become a momma. haha.

    and love the ferris wheel picture... ive never been on one and my hubs wont try it with me!
