  3. We don't have any candy here either...we really don't get any trick or treaters where we live! Great PSA though!

  4. Great post, guys! We rarely have candy in our house and mom is extra careful if we do.

  5. My mom can't keep candy around here or she eats it herself! I think families with kids and dogs have the most troubles. Good advice.

  7. A very good reminder. Angel Joey dog used to give a chocolate warning at Halloween time as well as at Easter and Christmas. Once when he was young, he stole a piece of designer dark chocolate from ghostwriter's room. He was immediately given an ounce of hydrogen peroxide. After several tense moments, he threw up and the chocolate came out. He was dosed a second time and that seemed to clear it all out. He would have been dead if no one figured out it was he that stole the chocolate!

  8. Helpful info to share! Luckily Rita is super picky and not interested in chocolate!

    When I was little we had a beagle. One year we hung foil-wrapped chocolate Santa ornaments on the tree. He snuck in the living room (he wasn't really allowed in that one room of the house - he could seriously be a "stealth beagle" when he wanted to be!) and removed all the ones he could reach and even managed to unwrap them. We found all these wrappers on the floor later around the bottom of the tree. Luckily they were just small pieces of milk chocolate, so he didn't get sick!

  10. We love this infographic! The Dadz has a sweet tooth...OK, I do too! So we almost always have candy in the house but it is kept way out of the dogs' reach. I think there are many people who are not aware of the issues with chocolate though, so we're sharing.

  11. Good information. We don't really do Halloween here, and SHE doesn't like chocolate, so we never have it around....one less thing to worry about.

  12. This is such important information. Xylitol was brought up to us when Greta ate the mushroom
