We like to get flowers once a week to brighten our apartment. This week the flower man gave Princess A her own rose which is sweet in theory but not in real life. Here she is trying to hold onto her flower but I took it away because she does not have a good track record with roses… let me explain.
A couple of months ago I thought it would be a fun idea for Princess A to pose with a rose. I got one good picture and then she started eating it. I took it from her and she started to cry. While I was trying to calm her down Freckles started to eat the rose so then I had to take the rose from him too. Finally, everyone was calm and not eating roses.
About thirty minutes later Princess A started puking up rose petals so I called the pediatrician. While I was on the phone with the pediatrician’s secretary Freckles started to puke up rose petals as well. When I got off the phone with the pediatrician’s office I called the veterinarian’s office. I started to freak out and wonder how I would be able to get them both to their prospective hospitals.
The pediatrician called and asked some questions She told me that roses are non toxic and not to worry unless Princess A got a fever or rash. Right when I got off the phone with her my vet called and said that roses are non toxic to dogs as well.
I was so relieved! But then I remembered I had to clean up dog and baby puke… gross!!! Oh well, at least I didn’t have to go to 2 hospitals!
