Buster’s Sweet Tooth

Buster's Sweet Tooth Got Him In Big Trouble

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 for example, if you're fifteen your range would be minimum 14 1/2, and your maximum would be 16. What is your method for <14 year olds, as well as 14 year olds themselves, as well as >16 year olds? My "method" is simple. Beginning at a suitable age, say 11, simply add two until you reach 15. Then, the age method is contingent upon the exact nature of the relationship, as well as the particular state's AOC. (Note, some states have very relaxed AOC's, so this method may not be suitable for all cases....this is based upon an AOC of 18) I don't do math, lololol. If I like you, I like you, normally though, I'd say 3 years older, while you're in school, then when you get out into "the real world" it can go up to as far as you want to. The thing is though, in some states, anything past holding hands can potentially be illegal if, using your method, one is 16 and the other is 19. That's only three years. However you are right, but I wouldn't use my method until I'm outta school. And besides, normally like them my age or a year or two older. 3 years can make a huge difference. Fifteen and Eighteen, Fourteen and Seventeen, Twelve and Fifteen etc. Yes. but think about it 23-26, that's not a big difference when you get outta school. Nobody will look at you weird, maybe for when you're in school. but out of school age is just a number.

Like having a Manic episode, depression. Stuff like that. Is that not Happy.Sad.Happy.? Happiness can be a form of Mania, which does actually mean happy.sad.happy. Yes, but there is also a...kinda like an angry manic mood. Where you're more easily annoyed and sometimes more likely to be violent. I know anger can be associated with Mania, but isn't that also angry.sad.angry.? Also, not all Mania Is shown by anger, maybe in your personal life there has been this, but it is not always the case.
