So my husband decided to do the lawn the other day, for which i was appreciative over..but…we have a 6 month old puppy and he put down scotts lawn fertiziler turf builder- these orange pellet things.
He let the puppy down afterwards and didnt even think ” hmm this is a fertiziler/turf builder,” maybe the puppy shouldnt be in the backyard where she can eat this?
He doesnt read instruction/ or read things like that, like ever. Hes awesome but not in this regard.
Im the one who takes care of the puppy 75% of the time since hes a work more and now we cant use the backyard.
So i didnt know about this turf builder at first and just found her starting to eat these orange things and thought “holy crap, what the heck is this!” And he told me he was trying to make the lawn beautiul…Well ,thats great hun, but watch out for the dog in the process too! The instructions said too, they have to be absorbed in the ground, and of course he didnt read them, so he didnt water the ground either. Evem after I made him water the ground this morning, these orange pellets still arent gone. Now im worried.
I know he didnt do this on purpose but Im upset. Luckily I caught it before our puppy could eat more than just a few of these little orange pellets, but this is a mistake that could have made our puppy really sick .He got upset since I brought it up like 3 times but HE JUST DOESNT GET IT!
He needs to read the instructions, its great he is trying I help, I appreicate it, I do, but if at the same time, you are by accident, could injure our dog, you need to be careful! Also, this turf builder is early sprng before the weeds come or late summer after theyre gone, well we already have weeds, so this actually doesnt work or do anything. Again, apprecaite what he was trying to do, but it would have been helpful to read.
Im just so frustrated right now that our dog almost got sick. I know she didnt but Im so luckyI caught in time, ..isnt it just common sense, who puts fertizler turf builder down, and thinks the puppy can go on it/eat it? Especially as It says on the bag in red / warning dangerous for children adults, do not induce vomiting, do eat, call 911 etc. etc.
Am I right to be so upset right now? Our puppy is a member of our family and one of us now, I cant imagine life without her, so it scares me to think what could have happened….Im seething but trying not to be. Why cant some men just read instructions? Should I be worried now when we have kids, that he will do something like this, be the fun, crazy parent that brings kids to do unsafe things because they are fun?
