Silly question, perhaps I'm being paranoid, but...
I have been reading about the presence of peanuts in animal feed. I was concerned about animal excrement containing peanut residue. Given that our neighbors have two Great Danes that seem to LOVE our lawn, should I be concerned about little Billy coming into contact? Any feedback is appreciated.

Uh, yeah, I think it would be a good idea to keep little billy away from dog poop. Anyway, I always find Great Dane poop easier to avoid than poodle poop, so count your blessings.

Sandra Y. and Momma Bear, I can't believe you spent your time and energy. However, it is yours to spend. If you like, do a search of the UserName and find the previous idiotic first post.
I don't mind taking heat for saying what I just said either.
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Oh Cindy, laugh girl! C'mon, life is short. The whole topic doesn't make you smile just a bit? I guess I still have a little soft spot for potty humor. Somehow, I think my son would laugh if I told him, "Watch out for the dog poop--it might have peanuts in it!" Being 7, he likes potty humor, too.

deegann, well, that's the second time to-day I have been ROFLMAO when visiting this site. It is much needed, thank-you. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
We moved to Toronto when I was 7 and my sister was 3. This was in the 1960's. We lived in Caledon on Highway #10 which is just south of Orangeville. Anyway, my sister was outside in her playpen and this has nothing to do with poop, but I'll snitch on the little witch anyway, as I did way back when.
She had completely removed ALL of her clothing and was stark naked in her playpen.
Well, my Mother, after I ran into the house to tell her that my sister was outside in the playpen nude, freaked out.
Of course, my sister did have this thing where she would smear poop (of her own) on the walls, something that Well Mannered Miss here never did.
Oh, sister stories, I love them. I actually heard a good one from my Mom tonight but it's not something I'm going to tell.
Great stories! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
On a more serious note, and only regarding dog food and not dog poop. I have recently switched brands of dog food mostly because I didn't want to try to haul home the huge bag of Dog Chow I was used to buying and also because it went mouldy for no apparent reason - i.e., it was not damp where the dog food was kept, etc. When I called the company about it, a $20.00 bag of dog food that was basically useless, they sent me $10.00 worth of coupons, which to me, sorry, was not satisfactory.
So there I am now, stooped down in the dog food aisle reading the labels on the different dog foods. I've found one that I like that is quite colourful (that's why I like it, I don't think Moz gives a toss).
Another dog story, did I tell it to-day here?
Probably. So, a chicken breast left on the table this morning when we leave for school. Why, I am unclear except it is Monday morning and my mind and body are slower than their usual slow. It wasn't on the edge of the table or anything and there was a chair in front of the part of the table where the chicken breast was.
I come home from walking the kids to school, have to shovel the snow for the Canada Post employee so he can actually deliver my mail (remember please that I do agree with this having been married to a postie). I let the dog out and find the garden shovel that DH has told me is my snow shovel (thank you very much idiot man [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/mad.gif[/img] ) and go and shovel the snow while the dog is out.
I come in, really wanting that second cup of coffee and the filthy thing that goes with it and really needing to get warm. In through the dining room and I see up-turned on the floor, the plate that the chicken breast was on, complete with fork.
Remember that when I had come home and let the dog out and found the shovel that the dog had run downstairs from the bedrooms to greet me and be let out.
I say, okay, Moz, where are the chicken bones (and knowing full well that he should not be eating chicken bones). Come upstairs, search all three bedrooms (the fourth is the computer room and due to the coldness of the house, the door is kept closed until I actually use the room during the day, probably not good for my computer) for chicken bones. Can't find any. Figure he scarfed them down.
Pick the kids up from school to-day and decide to tell them the funny story about the chicken thief which brings back memories of the gingerbread cookie thief for them. Last year, we had made gingerbread cookies and each child had a plate of cookies that they were saving for later in the day, after school. They were up on the kitchen counter, but remember my dog is a fairly big guy, but I didn't at the time.
The kids come home from school and look at me with rather accusatory glances as if I had sat here and eaten their cookies. Then, it dawned on all of us that no, Moz had gotten up on the counter and eaten the cookies.
So, told the kids tonight that if they happened to get stuck with a chicken bone, they would know that Moz had eaten the chicken breast in their bed.
Can you imagine? The horror! The horror! (in my best Marlon Brando, in Apocalypse Now imitation).
So, tonight, CSI Miami a repeat and I see even my beloved Anthony LaPaglia's Without a Trace is a repeat Thursday night. I am one ticked off woman.
Having said that, and it being 12:14 a.m. and I have a busy day tomorrow (who doesn't?), I am taking to my bed with thoughts of Anthony LaPaglia.
No, wait a minute, I'm in Mexico, drinking a lot of bottled water so I won't have a hangover from those strawberry margueritas I've been drinking all day with Mr. LaPaglia.

Uh, not really, but thanks for the poop-eating story. My own son was a mild to moderate poop-eater as an infant. Now he is a picky eater, so you never can tell how they will turn out. They change so fast *sigh*

Originally, when I read the post, I smiled [i]very hard[/i] (and furrowed one eyebrow). [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] sort of a chuckle-type-thing. Maybe it's just me. Despite this, [i]I was giving it some serious thought[/i].
Then with some new realization, (after reading some *other* posts on the board in *Off Topic*), I laughed even harder. (Particularly at myself) doh(!) [i]sucked in again[/i]. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
Came back and read your post. Couldn't see the screen due to the tears of laughter streaming from my eyes.
Came back yet again.............. I think I shed a pants size. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/cool.gif[/img]
PS. I will admit with no shame I have had similiar thoughts (as the original poster) regarding [b]*my own family* and *our* management of PA[/b] in light moments. Tunnel Vision makes for some excellent humor.
PPS.......... The day I can't laugh at myself will be a sad one indeed.

'cept what really really really stood out for me was the idea that possibly, some people may think it is 'ok' to allow their "pets" (purposely seek out?) to defacate/urinate on another person's lawn. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img]
PACKAGING IT UP DOESN'T MAKE IT RIGHT EITHER. :P :P
If it's so "ok", then people should walk the pet on their own lawn, patio, find a field, walk their pet after the fact, [i]WHATEVER[/i]............
Don't tell me the creature won't $#!^ "on it's own lawn" (I also *don't care what idiosyncracies "pets" harbor, as long as they don't dock it on my lawn. (EVEN IF ONLY TEMPORARILY.) cuz many pet's do "their stuff" in "their own backyards" every #@*^ day. I mean, it's trained not to mess the house, isn't it?
[i]for the record, many children take much longer to "potty" train than pets do. Despite this, I have yet to see one of my "neighbors" allow their children the same liberties with my lawn as their pets.[/i]
[b]Just some thoughts.[/b]
