Buster’s Sweet Tooth

Apr 13, 2009

A sweet-toothed dog that wolfed down 12 Cadbury Creme Eggs in one sitting has sparked new warnings for owners to keep their Easter treats out of their pets' reach. A yellow Labrador retriever named Buster ended up in intensive care with chocolate poisoning after sniffing out the chocolate eggs at his home.

Chocolate contains a chemical called theobromine, which can be REALLY dangerous for dogs.

Luckily, Buster made a full recovery, but vets say it shows the importance of not sharing your chocolate with pets.

Giving dogs even a small piece of chocolate can cause them to be really sick. They could get a tummy ache or, even worse, they could die.

Dark chocolate is even worse, as it contains higher amounts of theobromine.

If your pooch just can't keep his or her paws of the chocolate, try giving him or her special dog treats that taste like chocolate but don't contain theobromine (check your local pet store or ask your vet).

As for Buster, it seems he still hasn't learned his lesson. His owner, Brenda Dawes, says, "He's already tried to eat a bag of chips and a roll of toilet paper since he's been home from the vet. I'll have to keep a close eye on him from now to keep him out of trouble."

So yesterday, my dad checked my search history. Harmless, right? Well... you haven't seen it. Because they gave me a LONG lecture yesterday about what I read. I feel like they don't trust me on the internet anymore. But I also understand. Because you know what the history was? Phan  ѕмυт. LOTS of phan ѕмυт. How do I gain their trust? My mom won't let me use headphones and threatened to not let me go to VidCon. I'm not just angry and betrayed at my dad for snooping in my phone, but also embarrassed and ashamed. I'm only 10, for God's sake! They should be worried about my access to the internet. How do I gain their trust again?!
