I got a frantic call from my wife at work tonight....I guess our dog had got sick and pucked up a worm at least 18 inches long!!!!!..She was sure the dog was gonna die if it was harboring worms of that size!!! She had picked up the puke and worm and put it in a plastic bag for me, and the vet tomorrow to check out.. I got home from work and opened the plastic bag and was kinda freaked out seeing this huge worm that just came out of my dog, it was just creepy!. I closed the bag, but a few minutes latter decided to take a closer look at this worm...I got a stick and picked it out of the bag only to discover it was a shoelace!:smile2: Can you imaging what the vet would have said? He would have charged me 50 bucks to tell me my dog has shoelaces!
