    It looks like they were having fun! [​IMG]

    Grapes can be toxic to dogs. Here's an article that's been verified by snopes on feeding dogs grapes and raisins. They can develop acute kidney failure from eating grapes or raisins. Very scary for dogs!

    Sorry Titaniumcranium! I didn't mean to thread jack. This important question was asked, so I answered it. [​IMG]

    My non-gardening neighbor has a massive grape vine covered in grapes. I'm waiting for them to ripen so I can swipe the ones that hang over the fence and start my own grape wars!

    Quote:Wow,I didn't know that.I don't make it a point to feed them grapes,they just go for them when I give um to the chickens.

    I'll have to make sure they don't get any more.

    Thanks for the info.
