Children aren't the only ones hunting eggs today, watch out for anyone offering your dog Chocolate.

I know the doggie people on here are aware of the danger to dogs but visitors and children might not be

Luckily this story ended happily for Molly

Happy Easter

What a lovely dog.

My old girl has never even had doggie choc drops. Thankfully she makes no attempt to eat chocolate she might find on the ground during her walk.

She is isn't she - doesn't look like she'd put a paw wrong :-)

I could never see the point of doggie choc drops either, think they were just designed to make us feel we were giving something special (and expensive) dog bickies work just as well for treats or training

I was given a really good tip about treats for my dog while attending her initial training classes.

Cut up some liver and put in the microwave, cook it for a bit, chop it smaller and cook again and repeat until biscuity.

A cheap and healthy treat and dogs love them.

Best do it on a warm day though so you can open the back door LOL

Hello my lickle chick a dee

Just hatched out to play then?

When I was little, not that long ago, I hid my lovely Easter Egg on thw window ledge behind the curtain so my big bro wouldnt nick it.
It was a lovely sunny day and yep you've guessed it, by the time I opened it, it was one melted blob.

Weird how we remember silly things from, yeh ok, donkeys years ago :-D :-D
