Well a day of soaking & this is what we ended up with.  There are at least 2 plastic bags, the clear one at the top, that is like a produce bag.  Over to the right is a black bag of some kind & they are tied together with a knot.  The stuff at the bottom on the left side is string, or  cord. Like a dish rag gone bad. 

I have no idea where it came from, John didn't find anything this morning when he walked the fence line.  The string would have made it heavy enough that it probably wouldn't blow around.  Of course dogs could have dragged it in from someplace else. 

I wonder how long something can stay in their system without causing problems or being eliminated?  Is it something that could have already been in their system when they came in January?

I'm not a vet but i think it's possible that that could have been in someones belly since jan.

I think you might be right. The more I look at it, the more I think the bags might have not been as flimsy when they went in, stayed there for weeks & digestive juices were breaking them down. I'm just amazed that Ruthie or Ruger didn't colic. The mess was tied together & the cords made it too heavy to blow in on the wind. Their old home was messy with lots of "stuff" laying around, so I would imagine that's what happened.
