Shhh Viking, Chocolate is listed as very harmful for dogs, but it's only lethal in larger amounts. A lot of people seem to exaggerate this a bit too much and take it out of proportion. These are definitely things you shouldn't be handing to your dog on a regular basis, but on occasion and if it's a small piece of chocolate it really won't do them any harm. It's a lot like alcohol on humans. The stuff absolutely destroys our livers, but we still drink it. Only lethal in large amounts. Although I do disagree with him giving the dog a pot brownie. Although no harm was probably done it's still something I wouldn't be doing to my own pet. I don't really understand why a lot of people insist on getting their pets high. I always feel like it could be a potentially stupid thing to do. Can't explain to a dog that it's just a bad high and that it'll be over shortly. Could potentially really freak the dog out.
Although speaking of, I had an incident with my friend where we had been compressing his smoke room and didn't realise the dog was behind one of the chairs. We pretty much nurtured him the whole time and sorted him out with some munchies, after that he'd always want to follow us into the smoke room. Every so often we'd let him, but only if we'd be staying home the rest of the afternoon with him. I always think it's potentially dangerous for pets to be getting high, they can't explain to you how they're feeling or what's going on in their head.
Guess I need to find some pictures of my dogs and post them up then, join the rest of the group..
