Yes, Libby is mad about bananas too although I don't give her them. I think it goes back to when she was a little pup and found a blackened banana skin for which I gave her a treat. It turned into a game for about 2 weeks on that walk. She would get really excited when she knew she was near the banana skin and would go and find it then bring it to me knowing she would get a treat for leaving it!!! If only she would do that with dead rabbits and birds etc!

This is from the internet (USA) plants that are toxic for dogs .....Apple seeds included.
Many of the plants can be found in our own gardens here in the UK
It's my understanding that Apple pips contain cyanide and this is an accumulative poison that is stored in the body, so too many pips are not a good idea.
I don't allow my dogs Apple.
Here is the rest of the list to worry about :roll:

Brilliant!!
A few on there I knew about, a few I don't even know what they are,
and a few that have surprised me.
Bruno has a terrible habit of destroying my tomato plants though............

The dogs garden area here is an orchard filled with fruit and olive trees. They start off eating the cherries, then move onto the apricots (they are very clever they never eat the stone just the fruit :lol: ) then it's apples, pears and figs. They are all adept at 'targetting' which fruit they want, even the midgets can now do a very impressive vertical takeoff and swipe. Once all the fruit has been taken from the lower branches they turn to Sach for help, last year he perfected his tree climbing skills and finally learned how to get back down. He knocks the apples/pears off with his paw while his adoring audience wait patiently under the tree to snaffle the booty :lol: . Then it's on to the blackberries. They all sampled the olives the first year we were here and decided one was more than enough :mrgreen: .
Given the chance (which I try very hard not to give them :roll: ) they also eat the tomatoes, peppers, courgettes, aubergines, cucumbers and melons. They're a fruity lot :lol:

Just the other week Juneau stole an apple and took it everywhere with him we ended up using it as a ball out on his walk. Apples are now a firm favourite to be played with then eaten.
New doodler - its a good excuse for being a bit dotty

we regard Ted as our mobile compost heap :lol: . He loves anything but apples :!: .
The vet told us to give him fruit to bulk up his food intake while he was on his diet, but we
weren't allowed to give him grapes and bananas because they were too full of sugar.(he's allowed them now but sparingley)
so do be carefull if your little devils are watching their waste line. :D

ps. She didn't warn us anything about apples

N/B Grapes ARE toxic for dogs, a real NO NO.
It's a trip to the vet for sure if you dog ingests grapes or raisins.

What about grape vines? There is no fruit around yet, but the dogs are tugging on the vines...

The list is interesting, there is aloe vera all around the place, the same with eucalyptus. Other plants have no ideas what they are :oops:

Everyone seems OK though apart from the odd runny tummy.

As for apples, the dogs love them as a treat, but no cores for them, its me who eats them.

Interesting to see Monkshood on there - I have Monkshood in my garden - it is pretty hard to tell the difference between that and Delphinium. I am just reading a murder mystery book where the victim was poisoned with aconite - from Monkshood - it sounds a particularly unpleasant thing! Since it is the roots that are the poisonous part I'm thinking it may actually be safer to leave it there, rather than risk exposing roots but not removing them all :?

Im a bit surprised the vet mentioned grapes. As Linny says it's a definate no. Grapes and vine fruits can cause renal failure in dogs.
Someone up the road recently lost their little dog after eating a fruit cake.
I don't know if xylotol was mentioned on the list Linny (Or if it is spelt with a 'Z') But Xylotol is a sweetner found mainly in sugar free chewing gum. This is also very toxic to dogs. And while we are at it, anti-freeze is particularly sweet, and tempting but is a lethol poison in tiny amounts.
