Out with the dog

Winter came somewhat early. And Clara is crazy about snow. Her favorite hobby is to chew all dry branches and sticks into small pieces. When sticks are chewed, it's time to smell and taste the snow. Clara does not seem to care although it's minus 10 degrees Celsius. Whereas other dogs are raising their paws and shaking, Clara just enjoys the weather.

  1. Here, I have packs of coyotes and coydogs that follow me. They like to dig up and eat my meals after I'm completely done with them like wolves in the arctic. If they follow too far into the city and continue scavanging they can get themselves poisoned! :awww:I've got a couple of photos of one I wanted to post but,…thoughtfully. It's not pretty. In fact, feel free to delete this if you find it offensive, especially when Clara's licking your face. ๐Ÿ˜†

    Dogs like to do that as well. It's part off their nature. In cities one must try teach dogs not to do so and always make sure they don't eat anything they find from the ground. There are crazy people around who wish to do harm with rat poison :awww:

    And if I catch them, I'll make them eat it!! :bomb:.

  4. We do have a lot of them and even I myself have had my stomach in knots from carelessness combined with need. Remember to check the expiration date! ๐Ÿ˜†

  5. I do not speak about rotten food or expiration dates, I mean bates filled with real rat poison and killing several dogs around here.

  6. I used to supplement my needs by dumpster diving back when I didn't have Social Security. Not to mention the possibility of past drug use having been adulterated with such. Depending on what we're talking about, strychnine or belladonna can be coproducts of the main ingredient. Wild mushrooms, chanterelles in particular, are a nice find. Muscarine and psyllocybine aren't my target these days. :angel:I once was given some windowpane that I suspect was mostly foxglove(digitalis). :wizard:

  7. Digitalis? :sherlock:. Isn't that an ingredient in Zombie potion? :insane:.(chemically similar to Nirium Oleander as I recall. The number one cause of 'accidental' poisoning by ingesting invader species plants in Southern Africa. :insane:)hard to detect and causes apparent cardiac failure. An almost 'perfect' murder weapon if the victim is an angina patient. :whistle:.

  8. People used to say digoxin used for angina is the same as used on rat poisons. Well, digoxin aka digitalis is poisonous but I think rat poisons are usually made out of something else :left: Anyway, poison is poison and kills if heavy dozes taken ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. BTW. They use poison toad and puffer fish to make zombies. Just throw the whole thing in there, it'll work. :eyes: of newt?

  10. Why DO(that's easier than the sym menu) they call it "Foxglove"? Same stuff. Rat poison was often strychnine. Which is often found in plants but of course arsenic and recent high tech concoctions can also be obtained. :chef: My processed processed food is killer? I DO often by GMO. ๐Ÿ˜†

  11. It's the puffer fish pancreas that is the actual source of the poison. That's a problem even off Long Land, NY. And I've eaten many of them as a boy. One slit behind the head, turn 'em inside out and then cut the tail and there's no risk of puncturing any entrails. :chef:
