What is it about chocolate that’s so bad for dogs?

Dogs beg for treats that may not be good for them

I just watched a story about the Ivory Coast farmers who are the largest exporters of cocoa beans in the world, and yet they had no idea what the cocoa beans are used for.  They somehow decided that their beans are being used to make wine. This falsehood spread throughout the village and from generation to generation. The farmers harvest the beans and yet they have never tasted chocolate, or even knew about it. When a man came over from the city and gave them all a piece of chocolate, their eyes lit up and they were amazed as well as happy that their hard work creates something so delicious. This story brought to mind two separate things: Firstly, if awareness of an object or a fact is not complete, the mind fills in the blanks even though many times the part that is filled in is completely wrong. Secondly, I started thinking about chocolate and dogs, and how people eat almost any amount of it and have no adverse effects (except to the waistline), yet a dog could get poisoned with an ounce of the same product. It’s sad to see my dog Duke watching me with those big, brown eyes when he sees me eating chocolate and it’s obvious that he wants a small piece for himself. Read More »
