I don't know if anybody on here has heard me complain about my neighbor's two beagles that never stop howling. He came over yesterday to tell us that we would never hear the howling again. He had spent the whole night in the emergency room with them because they had eaten snail bait. One of them died and the other had to be put down. He said that he had been using snail bait in his yard for ten years and never had a problem with the dogs eating it. Him and his family were absolutely devistated. All of my friends think I'm crazy because I refuse to use chemicals and poisons in my house but after hearing this story, I know that it's a safe decision. By the time that he got the dogs to the emergency room, it was to late to save them. Often when I walk the dogs, they try to get into people's planters and sniff around. Sometimes they will grab something before I can pull them away (it's usually cat poop :cat. I'm gonna be much more careful from now on after hearing about my neighbor's horrible experience. Sorry to be a downer but I just thought I should share the story.
