I’ve been a dog mom for 15 years now so you’d think I’d have all the foods and substances that are dangerous to dogs memorized. But I’ve just learned a new one from a WebMD article: macadamia nuts.
What’s scary is that recently I dropped a container of the things on the kitchen floor and about 30 of them rolled around Mason’s little feet. I told him to wait at the kitchen door while I set about crawling around, cleaning (and cursing a little, I must admit) and pondering over whether macadamia nuts are bad for dogs. As soon as I decided they must be, I heard little feet behind me. I turned to see Mason had just returned to his position at the door. He was licking his lips and a wet nut was on the floor in front of him. Thank goodness he didn’t like it.
