I can't get the link to work. :(

Is it about grapes (raisins, currents, sultanas etc) being poisonous to dogs?

To me it was more about what could be encountered in the yard

I put the link in again-think it's the internet b'cuz I have "unable to connect,try later" and when I go back at it ,I'm there. Had this with this forum this am too.
dogmagazine.net will get you to sight but then there's a whole" bunch" of interesting "stuff" to read :)

Thanks - the link worked this time.:thnx:
The only thing I think I have to worry about are the mushroms. If we have a wet summer this year like last year we get quite a few. Guess I'll have to be vigilant.
I've had trouble with this site today as well. I'm wondering if it's a problem with the server?

Don't think Glads are poisonous. Here's a large list of what not to plant

Foxglove is one of the deadliest plants on the list.

I would love it if the information label that comes with new plants included toxicity to pets as well as whether or not the plant likes the shade / sun, how big it will grow etc. It would make gardening so much safer!

Interesting post.

If anybody is interested, we will talk about the "Top Ten Plant Poisoning " in an upcoming newsletter (available for free on my web site :- )

Jeeze! sounds like I have to rip up half my garden or muzzle the dog! Don't they have any animal instinct not to eat these things? I thougt toxic plants tasted horrible?
