Peanut the Chihuahua got more than he bargained for after helping himself to a cookie that didn't belong to him.
He got high - like, super DUPER high.
Turns out, it was no ordinary forbidden treat.
As Peanut's owner, Reddit user Choices63, explains online: "We had an overnight guest. Our Chihuahua found his stash, ate an entire weed-laced cookie ... He actually dug it out of a duffel bag. Had to work hard to get it. It was the cookie he was after, not the weed."
Apparently, no one's ever told Peanut about edibles.
That sudden intake of THC didn't have a pleasing effect on the little pup. As the drug set in, he was unable to stand, and began acting all jittery and paranoid. It was not only a bad high, however, it was a health hazard .
Fortunately, Peanut's family did just the right thing.
"We took him to a local university vet medical school," writes Choices63. "He only weighs 6 lbs so we were concerned about how much he had, plus there was some chocolate in the cookie so just wanted to be safe. What was funny is they weren't fazed at all - clearly not the first time they had seen a stoned animal."
