Okay, you be the one to tell Jake he can't have a beer after dinner! :D

So glad bananas aren't on that list. As soon the kiddos finished their dinner they are spinning around the kitchen in anticipation of their banana!

Too funny! Abbey is the same, she loves bananas! She had a piece of seedless watermelon last night, then she barked at me for more!

Thank god not to dogs! My pups LOVE avocado!! :lol: But then again, they love everything....

I've actually seen a dog with macadamia nut toxicity! It was really weeird. We didn't know what as wrong with it (this was when I was working at a hospital). It couldn't walk. It was uncoordinated. It had just lost control of it's legs. I took it outside and he poo'd and there were these macadamia nuts in it... I mentioned it to the vet and she said it was probably inconsequential, but looked it up and sure enough! Macadamia nuts cause temporary paresis (not as bad as paralysis) of legs in dogs! Major problem in Hawaii, appparently, with dogs eating the nuts off the beaches. (?) There's nothing you can do except wait and they just get better on their own! But how scary...
