You’d be surprised how difficult it is to come up with a fun fact every Friday! Admittedly, I skipped last Friday, because I wasn’t about to pull attention from Lindsay’s amazing post about fostering. If you missed it, check it out here!

Halloween is right around the corner and if you are lucky you will score a big haul of candy next Wednesday. This may be a fun and exciting time for you and your little ones, but it could take a disastrous turn if your furry friend gets a hold of your sugary score.Dog’s stomachs are typically very sensitive and there is a whole slew of things that are delicious to humans, but toxic to canines. Most importantly, you want to keep your dogs away from the chocolate which is not only toxic, but can’t be deadly. For Fido’s sake make sure you keep your candy off the floor and out of reach.

Candy isn’t the only thing to consider protecting your dog from on Halloween. If you are passing out candy and your dog is even a little weary of strangers or people entering your house, it’s better to go ahead and put Fido away in a back room. This way he won’t be stressed out by the never ending barrage of visitors. Not to mention, you never know if your trick-or-treaters are scared of or allergic to dogs.
