I am sorry to hear you are worried about your dog. How is she doing? My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help. I just came online and saw your questions; I am sorry you did not get help from an expert before now.

I would not expect any problems in a dog her size from a toothpick. Giving her the bread and monitoring her is what I would do if she we're mine. Please let me know what other questions you have. Rebecca

Abby is doing well. Last night was somewhat restless on my part. Today she here appetite is good and she is drink water as normal. My wife & I took her with us when my wife went for a pedicure. While Abby & I walked around at different stops. She Urinated twice and had one BM. I feel certain she is going to be OK. I have no further questions.
