A few months ago, a Trupanion employee brought home this beautiful Bernese Mountain Dog puppy and named him Rainier. Being that he is young and a dog means that he is likely to be curious, especially when it comes to food items!

InstagramCapture_e044ee47-56e5-4fc0-bfa9-d9c5aaedb9b0_jpgRainier ate a corn cob which resulted in a trip to the vet. His care consisted of radiographs to assess the problem, and surgery to remove the pieces of corn cob because they were unable to pass through his digestive system. Rainier stayed at the vet hospital overnight to recover.

We hope he feels 100% very soon so that he can come back to work and grace the office with his cuteness!
