My parents had a lab when I was a baby, they got her as their practice kid. She ate the back doors of three separate houses. Ate the wooden door frames, tore the flyscreens off and ate those too. She was never going to be a real outside dog.

Glad your doggy is alright!

My toy poodle eats weird things. She somehow got into one of those glasses kits and ate a bunch of stuff. We watched her very carefully afterwads but she was fine. Dogs amaze me.

Not a lab, but... my little terrier likes to eat too! She's only 20 lbs, so most of this was not entirely consumed. But enough of it was that I wonder where she puts it...

- the 3" wide wood trim on one side my SO's bedroom door
- a jiffy pot; I came home to find her unable to open her mouth, as the jiffy pot had begun to expand while she was chewing/slobbering on it, and it had wedged in between her teeth
- 1/3 of the sleeve of my Mountain Hardwear backpacking jacket, including elastic; it was hanging on the back of my door, she got mad and ate just enough of the jacket so I couldn't use it, but not enough that she got sick or waterproofed her insides
- at least 4 entire rolls of paper towels
- various assorted baskets
- ALL of the stuffing from the bottom of my box spring
- 2 dog beds
- various assorted plastic storage containers, different sizes
- yoga mat
- my favorite hoodie
- poos: cat, dog, that belonging to random wildlife out in the woods
- several square feet of carpet; we were gone for all of 30 minutes

She's never gotten sick or suffered any ill effects, except she was really upset and salivating like crazy when she had the jiffy pot stuck in her mouth. Once I pulled it out in little pieces with tweezers, though, she was back to racing around in circles and wagging her nub.

ETA: glad the dog is okay! Thankfully, dogs are pretty resilient. And thankfully, we usually can read our furry friends well enough to know if they are feeling bad enough to go to the vet.
