How Much Yarn Can a Basset Eat and Survive?

I’m not sure how much but I know at least this much. I assume this is about 50′ of yarn.

Normally Clive doesn’t eat non-digestible things other than liking chewing on paper. Thursday night he had an upset stomach and apparently ate some yarn in order to induce himself to vomit. I had no idea how much he had eaten until it started coming out both ends at different times. It’s funny now that I am no longer concerned about an intestinal blockage, he is eating and pooping fine. For a while there it wasn’t funny at all because I was concerned about my dog.

I’m fairly sure the dog ate enough yarn to crochet a toboggan or at least a baby toboggan (that is a knit cap for my Northern friends). Stupid dog.
