It is on the list. I should read the list better before I post.

It's alright! A little something about the plant list though. A few plants have more than one name (e.g. Lords-and-Ladies is one name but it is also referred to as Arum, Adam-and-Eve etc.) I didn't put all the names down, just the most popular. Probably a short cut I shouldn't have taken but I can go back to it if you want. Smile

I really don't see the need to change it. It's a very good list as it is.  Thumbsup

The only thing I know is wrong with that list is that some animals have issues with avocado, but dogs aren't one of them. And the fruit doesn't have persin in it, but who has ever cut into an avocado and not got little pieces of skin pushed into the fruit. That's why you don't give birds goats, horses avocado. Dogs only have avocado issues if they eat the pit, because it's a choking hazard.
Gotta love 'em.

My boys love natural raw unsalted almonds. They are often my afternoon snack and I have chosen to share this with the boys. I only have 1/2 a palm full myself and I bite one in half and give then 1/2 each. By the time our snack is finished they would be lucky if they consumed a total of 4-5 whole nuts each.
They also like oranges and it is the same story, I bite a small amount off a segment, perhaps no bigger than a pea. It really is little more than a taste and by the time I finish they would be lucky if they actually ate one segment between them.

LB, you have done a great job compiling this list, it's a valuable resource for members and guests. So important to keep getting these type of messages out there.

Ember ADORES almonds! She won't take peanut butter but we can grind our own Almond Butter at Kroger. She loves it!

ETA same, she doesn't get more than 2 or 3, but the almond spread I may use to fill a kong. Is that... bad?

Thanks GM! I updated the list again. I turned it to avocado pits.

Thanks Trifan, I always appreciate encouragement. Smile

@"Ember" as long is the spread doesn't have any xylitol it's fine. It would have the same effects as peanut butter except I would imagine peanut butter has more salt.

Well, it's literally ground almonds. Nothing in it Smile Probably fatty, though, being a nut, so I usually just line the kong thickly.
