Chocolate Warning

Greetings friends and fans. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your diligent doggie 
commentator Chester L. W. Spaniel along with my studious associate Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel.

This is our annual chocolate is poison for doggies warning!

It's that time again. Easter bunny time. Joey and I have yet to understand bunnies. We've seen Secretive Bunny Militia operatives sneaking around our yard. It's a mystery why bunnies insist on entering our territory, which is amply marked by twenty years of doggie pee, and surrounded by a fence. We can only conclude they are on a suicide mission—and I have caught a couple of them—because as far as we can tell, there's nothing of interest for them in our yard other than being chased by us, and possibly a few dandelion stems to eat. But I digress.

Every Easter Sunday, bunnies become eager couriers of baskets loaded with deadly chocolate candy. During the night, the Easter bunnies sneak into homes and deliver the baskets to any children who live there. Perhaps they hope the doggies who might live there will find the chocolate first, and eat it, with dire consequences. You see, these bunnies don't mess around. Everything they do is hard core!

Hopefully you adult humans out there will intercept those deadly baskets and replace the chocolate with apples, carrots, and doggie treats. Oh, and maybe a few of those peeps things.

Don't forget: chocolate is poisonous to doggies. 

Have a happy (and safe) Easter celebration! 

If your doggie does happen to eat some chocolate here's what you do: fill a shot glass with undiluted hydrogen peroxide, and pour it down your doggie's throat. It will make him vomit within a few minutes. In the meantime, get ready to take your doggie to the emergency vet right away. 


  1. No chocolate here. Happy Easter to you all. May the day bring lots of treats and fun.
