    I did some extensive research. Among other things that are harmful (possibly fatal) to dogs is a a list I've compiled that the puppy used to eat daily.
    1. Bacon. Why are there bacon flavored treats? He cleaned my plate every morning.
    2. Onions. He loves the scraps that hit he floor. That's why he sits and watches me cook.
    3. Salt. When he behaves I throw nuts on his couch. He now knows it's his couch. This is why bacon is bad (salt content).
    4. Eggs. Apparently cause skin problems
    5. Tomatos. Can kill them instantly via heart attack.
    6. Walnuts. Refer to # 3.
    Everyone knows about things like chocolate and alcohol, but if the rest of this is all true, little Gus wouldn't be guarding the chicks as we speak. He ate my cell phone last week but I got the battery out of his mouth before he swallowed it [​IMG]

    My dogs eat EVERYTHING they can get their teeth on. They have eaten:
    Soda Cans
    Clay
    Stuffing (out of the inside of a dog toy)
    Firewood (they will steal it from the wood pile [​IMG] )
    Chicken Poop
    Chicken Feathers
    Chicken Food (I caught one of my dogs drinking out of the chicken waterer today. She looked pretty pathetic.)
    And much, much more that I cannot remember off the top of my head. [​IMG]

    Quote:I love that list, I laughed all the way through it! Especially because they couldn't even spell diarrhea. The only one I completely agree with is the chicken/small bones. Seen that too many times! But, everyone knows a dog on the street will eat ANYTHING, and usually have stomachs made of iron. When I was growing up my mother had a chihuahua that was taught to say Momma by giving her a handful of M&Ms. Every day. The dog lived to 13, but was hit by a car. A friend's dog was named Boozer cuz the owners gave him beer to drink at least twice a week instead of water. And my dog loves salted peanuts and sunflower seeds. When I worked in the vets office all 4 of our vets recommended egg whites for better skin. Garlic is also a homeopathic treatment for fleas. If this list was true, my mother would never have raised a dog to adulthood LOL!

    Lol our big dog love scotch. We never let him having any, because we don't believe in sharing good scotch. [​IMG]

    My dogs eaten 2 pairs of very expensive eye glasses. [​IMG] The lens cost me over 500.00 the last time I had to replace them. We have litters of puppies about once a year, and each batch of puppies manage to damage something different each time. i am not looking forward to that stage this coming March. [​IMG] It is a darn good thing that the puppies are really cute, and worth a bunch of cash.

    Quote:Chocolate yes. Cooked poultry bones yes. Most of the rest of that list is a joke.
