I just had to click to see which planets were toxic to animals. I was a little disappointed to find it only listed plants on the website. Then I thought I misread what your list said and had to go back and double check.

Dad had a dog that loved grapes.
Course he'd lay there with it, peeling the skin off the grapes before he'd eat it. It took him like 30 minutes to eat one, so I don't think he could have OD'ed on them at that rate.

It does make you wonder though, if all that stuff is bad for dogs, is it really that good for us too? Especially some of them planets!

All my dogs have loved grapes. I've never given them more than one or two at a time.


I think Pluto is safe for dogs.

Had a mix that would 'snatch and grab' chocolate bunnies out of anyones hands. Fingers hand to be quick or be painful.

Grandad called him squirt for obvious colorful after Easter patches of yellow grass.

Planets are a known choking hazard

Well well. Here's another edition of "you just never know".

GWIZ, your "article" has been picked up by a nice lady in New Zealand who has now written to us twice. I believe she might have mistaken our discussion group as being some sort of publisher such as herself but that's fine. Seems she has been doing some research & writing about xylitol and would like us to know about it.
So I have appended Jillian's letter here with a link to her piece as well, and I will reply to her to let her know.

Dear Editor,

My name is Jillian and I’m an Editor at Jen Reviews. I was doing research on xylitol and just finished reading your wonderful piece: https://www.shopfloortalk.com/forums...ad.php?t=21590

In that article, I noticed that you cited a solid post that I’ve read in the past: https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/xylitol-danger/

We just published an updated, comprehensive guide on xylitol and why it is dangerous for your dog on our sister site, Your Dog Advisor. It is completely free and you can find it here: https://yourdogadvisor.com/xylitol/

If you like the piece we’d be humbled if you cited us in your article. Of course, we will also share your article with our 100k newsletter subscribers and followers across our social platforms.

Either way, keep up the great work!

Warmly,
Jillian

I take a different view on this... We try to feed dogs all kinds of shit they
really should not eat. Dogs are genetically wolves, therefore they have all
the same evolutionary traits as wolves. What do wolves eat? Wolves eat
raw meat. When we switched our Pyrenees over to raw meat, their health
improved, Aragon who seems to be allergic to everything, no longer as any
issues, well dietary at least. He still like to take off and he does not have a
U-turn in him, at least Tiny comes back. Wolves are not omnivores, stop
feeding them like they are.
