I just thought that i would add cocoa mulch too.
A lot of people use it on their gardens but it is exactly like chocolate!
It also contains theobromine which is fatal to dogs. In a sense it could be worse than chocolate as milk chocolate isn't quite as toxic as dark/cooking choc or cocoa and the mulch is made up of the cocoa beans.

Be safe

Well, in my case..The plants become savaged and tortured as my new pet labrador arrived in the house..My mom even told me to put him in a cage but I refuse to, because all her plants were really tortured since the time Larry, my pet labrador arrived..

Great site. I have a number of those plants around my house and I didn't even know they were a danger.

Thanks for this! My new house has tons of plants and holly berry bushes which are around back. I plan to have all of it ripped out come summer!

Thanks for this info. I love to garden and am shocked at how many poisonous plants I have - I'll have to keep a good eye on little Bella. The only thing she seems interested in chewing on is grass - hope it stays that way or the garden will have to be changed!

Good info to have. We lost our little 3 month old puppy to an unknown poisonous vine a long time ago. I hope this helps prevent someone else from suffering that loss.
