Cocoa Mulch

First thing we did when we got out of bed was to check Opy & Charlies blog to see if they were okay. As of this morning they are okay. We will keep an eye out what is going on down under, until this threat subsides.

We got an e-bark from Holmhaven about the danger of cacoa mulch. We are always a bit suspicious of these so we checked snoops and hoax-slayer. The cacoa mulch is not good at all for dogs and cats. The cacoa tree is used to make cocoa and chocolate. There is a thing called Theobromine that is just not good for us. From what we gathered there has been only one reported death and a bunch of pupsters that got real sick.

Supposedly 98% of the dogs will not eat the mulch, but of the 2% that do 50% frequently get real sick. So tell you Mom and Dad about cacoa mulch. What is that you bark? Oh, the collies use cedar mulch around the yard.

Dog Speed,

Essex & Deacon

We're probably quite safe over here :) Thanks for letting the Ma know about our blog not working properly... we usually go straight to our dashboard and not the actual site. It's been fixed now tho.
Have a good weekend,

Josh and Jessie
