I was grooming this cute fuzzy Pomeranian ... drying actually. She kept yarping up something then swallowing before I could see. This went on for five minutes. I finally had a paper towel ready and caught the edge of whatever she wanted to throw up. I pulled out about 6 inches of mouse entrails. I literally almost yarped myself. Glad I helped her out; she’s a good hunter. Rachel Diller, The Poodle Shop, Littleton, CO
