Good thing, because the leaves are poisonous.

My dog, Jasmine, also loves fruit. Well, that and any other thing she
can get in her mouth! LOL! She jumps up and picks plums off our
tree. A couple years ago I heard her barking in the back yard. She
was sitting under our plum tree barking because she could see a plum
*just* out of her reach above the fork of the tree. I can't imagine
what she'll be like this year...our plum tree is *loaded* with plums!
She also picks raspberries from my bushes, and not the green ones,
either. Oh, no, she finds the ripe ones and delicately plucks them
off! I just hope she doesn't find out about the cherries that I got
for the first time this year! They're much lower to the ground than
the plums, since the tree is only 4 years old and 4 feet tall. I
discovered one thing she doesn't like, though and that's rhubarb.

One word of caution, though. Grapes and raisins (and just a few!) can
be toxic to dogs! I just found out about this recently. Here's a
link to Snopes about it:

A dog with good taste. I don't like rhubarb either.

You can send your rhubarb to me. Wonder if any of the local farmers markets
still have some?

I think that must be a reginoal language idiom. In all the places I've
lived in tha states, never, ever heard canned, processed meat stuff referred
to as Potted Meat. But, I knew what was being referred to because of my
time living in the UK. So, perhaps us New York, DC, even Florida East
Coasters, don't use that phrase. Never heard it in NM, either.

As a public service, I submit to you:
http://www.pk.org/pottedmeat.html

With a lovely picture of the various potted meat products offered to the
American consumer.


How/why did you find that! more importantly - why did someone think this was
worthy of that much research.

Considering the massive amounts of money spent on "research" projects
of, at best, dubious subjects nothing surprises me about this one.
