Just in case.............

Roscoe was about a year old here and still had his plushy to play with, it's been torn apart since this shot was taken

That's Roscoe with his last plushy. Sadly that plushy has long since been torn apart but not before he had all kinds of fun with it. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Just in case you didn't know I'm posting a video to explain the hazards of fox tails. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Many dog or cat owners might not know about this potential deadly plant so I'm adding a video here to help you understand what it is and maybe you'll be able to prevent your pet from ever being tormented by this awful plant.

We don't have an outdoor pet, but oh we have these weeds . We pluck them out asap because these guys spread like crazy. I didn't even think about them going up their noses and possibly puncturing their lungs . . . but I've certainly felt those needle-y wheat looking things .

Yes, I have as well and I have so much of that awful grass. I just pray Roscoe will steer clear of that stuff.

@rebelann Maybe as he's a bigger dog, he's ok with it .

I hope you're right. I just worry that he might eat some of it and get it caught in his throat.

Roscoe was a lovely pup he is now a beautiful grown up dog. There are so many plants dangerous for the dogs and cats.

Would you believe Roscoe was 11 months old in this photo? That plushy was as big as Roscoe was at 4 months old.

@rebelann He was already very tall for his age.

Well, he is a mixed Belgium/German Shepherd so he got big really fast after I put him on a healthy diet after I adopted him, he was 13 weeks old.

By the way I find your post a bit weird. What are these symbols ~~~~~~~ for? Are they fillers making your post long? Sorry for my curiosity.

Weird is good I simply use them to divide the paragraphs for the fun of it.

I hope so. I'd hate for Roscoe to get one on or in him.

That's a great photo. What a pity Roscoe destroys everything. There are a lot of plants that are dangerous to pets.

Thanks. He was 11 months old when I took this shot. Yes there are many plants to be aware of but a lot of us, including me, had no idea an ordinary grass could be that dangerous.
