Nice Lady often shares licks of her chocolate ice cream with me. Never much, only licks. She tells me that chocolate contains a chemical toxic to dogs in sufficient quantities. Whatever that means! Based on the kind of chocolate, and the dog's weight, milk chocolate can cause diarrhea. But for me, a 10-pound dogger, I would have to eat 10 ounces.......... way more than a few licks.
Did you know that any ancestor alive in 1900 might have tasted Hersey's Milk Chocolate? That's when Mr. H. started making bars in his Pennsylvania factory. Hersey's Kisses debuted in 1907. Wonder if Nice Lady's forebears were chocoholics like she is???
