My husband and I just got our first dog a few months ago.  He is adorable...we love hime dearly, but we have to watch him every second when he is outdoors.  For some reason, he wants to eat everything he comes in contact with...  There are many plants that can cause an animal gastric distress and some can even be deadly.

We just came home from a vet visit after our Charlie decided he liked the taste of the freshly applied fertilizer. Fortunately he is okay, but I will know the next time that he can't be left ourside unattended until the rain dilutes the fertilizer.
