Thanks, Lissi. I didn't know that about the caffeine.
But my friend and my daughter both recently had bad
experiences with their dogs getting hold of chocolate.
My friend's dog ate a whole plate of brownies that she
thought she's put high enough and back enough on a
table to cool. Because there were other things in the
brownies (flour, sugar, etc) and only 2 squares of
chocolate total, he was o.k. after 3 days of being
hyper, but nothing else.

My daughter came home from work to find that her dog
had somehow managed to knock down a small bowl of
paper-wrapped smalll Hershey bars and eaten the whole
thing, papers and all. She had to have her stomach
pumped and had to be careful about diet for a few
days--and I think drink lots of water,  but
fortunately she was ultimately o.k.  We had to laugh
at my daughter, though, because when I'd told her
about my friend's dog and the brownies she was
scornful of my friend for leaving the brownies where
the dog could reach them.
