Reminder of the Dangers.......

The Momma wanted us to remind everyone of some of the dangers of the holiday season.

1. The following plants can be toxic: Holly, Mistletoe, Lilies, Poinsettias, Ivy , Balsam
2. Holiday trees: Keep thirsty pups away from commerical "tree water". It can be mixed with fertilizers, which tend to upset the stomach. If tap water is used to water the tree and has been sitting for a while, it may harbor potentially harmful bacteria
3. Pine needles: If swallowed, they can pierce the stomach or intestines
4. Place breakable ornaments above their reach.
5. Do not use tinsel, angel hair or fake snow
6. Place lit candles above wagging tail level

Edited to add a very important comment: the lovable Holly and Ivy are not toxic and are actually a very lovely addition to your life!!!
Play safe,
Tasha and Eva

PS. We did the best we could about sending snow to those who want some ;-)
PPS. Momma is putting all of our lovely cards on the big white box at our eye level so that we can continue to look at them and sniff all of you. Woof!

Hello you pretty dogs! I would just like to add something to the list of things to avoid on trees, from my own - and my human's - unfortunate experience: strung cranberries; they are not very digestible and tend to stain the carpet!

licks & slobbers

p.s. the snow you sent to Sydney melted and is coming down as rain!

Holly said...

I'm toxic?!?!!!!!! Oh My Dog! No one told me! And all those poor people who I have given snuggles to and let pet me! Woo is me!!!!!

I'll just have to go while away my sorry in our SNOW!!!! Yes, we got 4 inches of snow!! Thanks for sending some our way!!

I'm going to have to work on that "toxic" thing and see if I can fix that.

(I'm actually VERY safe!!)

Oh Holly, we meant to add a disclaimer about you and Ivy but was distracted by snow(yes we got more today). We had Momma correct the post.

Can you forgive us?
