My dogs recently have been coming into the house just stinkin like high hell. WTH are you getting into? I have my nephews puppy and she stunk this morning, so off to the shower she goes.

I take the ATV out and am riding along the fence line and what do I find that stinks to high hell?

A dead Toad!

It was a pretty big one, but just oozing everything and the damn dogs were rolling around on top of it Evil or Very Mad

I don't know what dogs think by doing such a thing.

They'll roll in just about anything that's dead, ripe and stinky. Twisted Evil

There's a type of toad down here that came from out of the country (Cuba?) If a dog bites it, the dog gets poisoned and usually dies.
I don't know about domestic toads. Dunno

this one should be fine. Typical mud toad that comes out when it rains. A LOT of rain here lately. Everything it green and having to cut the "grass" once a week or more. Alfalfa we threw down years ago is growing a foot tall before we knock it down.

The invasive species (another one) called Cane Toad, Marine Toad, or Giant Toad 
is the only poisonous toad in Florida. It can kill small mammals including dogs. It can 
get as large as a man's hand. I don't think it is anywhere else in the US, yet. IDK. 

I have been warned about them by fellow dog owners nearby. A few have had unfortunate 
encounters. But, I have no personal confirmed sighting. They are supposed to be a lot bigger 
than normal, native Florida toads. 

The poison is contained in glands in the skin. It can make a human ill. If you handle one and 
then rub your eyes, that will cause irritation. Wash your hands carefully after handling. If you 
are one of those looking for a 'trip' from licking a toad? Well, that would be a bad career move... Laughing


A Cane Toad- IDK why these folks are holding them with bare hands if they are so poisonous...

PS> There are no poisonous frogs or toads in Colorado. jocolor Unless you are very very very unlucky.

Isn't that a big Spring Break town? If so, my guess is some numb-nut brought a 
couple from south Florida to show off during the parties. crazy

They likely got tired of the gag and dropped them at the side of the road. Then... affraid 
'froggy went a-courtin!' 

FG? You want us to find a breeding pair to mail to you up there in Colorado? 
We don't need them here and you are likely a little bored up there. Besides, 
Cane Toads seem to be Spring Break/party approved. Maybe they will liven 
things up for you. Twisted Evil

Yup!
We have had an infusion of weed-seeking transients and homeless people. Seems like the number of beggars along the roads has increased.
The legalization has not stopped the importation of Mexican grass. The legal stuff is taxed, overhead is high, and prices are high. The Mexican stuff is poor quality but CHEAP.
My former orthopedic surgeon gave up his practice and now owns a chain of marijuana shops. That says something about this budding(?) business.

You want education, you ought to see what dedicated dogs can do along a river lined with stinking rotten  white spawned out salmon.... 

Never, ever take your dog to the river in a family car. Even if you're driving a pickup with an open bed, be careful about opening the door of the house when you get home! :barf

My accountant of 30 years has a good friend that manages the State of Colorado Tax Division. The Federal Government says the taxes that State of Colorado has and is collecting on Marijuana is illegal money and now they can't spend the tax funds as originally intended. Still in Federal Court system to get this resolved. In the mean time the tax money is kept in large vaults, hundreds of millions of dollars $$$$$ guarded 24 x 7.

Our accountant said if you want a high without even touching marijuana go to the State of Colorado Tax Division on the 20th of any month, tax day. The growers are paying cash because of the government ruling at this time so the hallways from the divisions counter where the funds are collected stink of the of grass that's on the funds being paid.  jocolor

Now the growers and the state are trying to figure ways to use the money legally and work around the Federal Government's rulings on grass at this time. study   scratch geek

Had a pair of labs, mother and daughter team. I say team because they worked together all the time getting into trouble. I would go outside every morning around 5AM to feed everyone - dogs, barn cats, horses and a beautiful Jersey milking cow.

One morning when I stepped out the door I damn near throw up from the smell which was stronger the a skunk smell. The dogs had caught a striped dark brown and white polecat (zorrillas) sometimes confused for skunks. My two girls had killed and tore it up in several pieces all over the side yard. I throw up three times while wearing plastic kitchen gloves trying to hold my breath and pickup the parts. That smell hung around for a week, even after cutting and watering the grass several times. I had the dogs playing and chasing each other for a week in the creek as well as doing all the old washes and sprays we hear about.

Baking soda mixed with peroxide works semi-well. Tomato juice doesn't work at all. My dog is an expert on skunks.  :barf

Boy, when they get the taste in their mouth and the fight in their blood, there's no stopping them either.

Only a little less bad, when I was a kid growing up in the desert we had a dog that was a porcupine specialist. Dunno where he found them in the desert, but he'd show up with his face all white with quills.  He knew what was coming with the pliers and the blanket and would try to hide from you, but in all his years it never stopped him.

You know I second that thing about porkies. Over the years I'd be willing to bet that porkies have cost me , as a cooner, over ten grand in lost dogs.  What happens is, the dogs'll hit a porkie and get full of quills. You'll of coarse pull them out. The following winter one will get sick , and finally die. You take the dog to the vet and guess what . Quills killed him. What happened is you missed some . They are like a one way needle. They keep going in , now you know the rest of the story. Also if you don't know it, cut the quill in half before trying to pull it out, that makes for a lot less blood flying around.The quills colaspe when you break their vaccum. Otherwise you have to tear the spears out

The easiest way to pull quills and the whole quill will come out is simple. Take a pair of finger nail clippers and cut the end off the existing quill, they are hollow and by doing this it lets the hook relax. Once pulled you'll find the animal doesn't throw a fix with pain and you got the whole quill out. Then treat with a first aid cream and your good to go.  When still messing with horse we always had this issue.

You ever shoot a porky with a shotgun with double buck... talk about scattering quills WOW.  What a Face   t up

Great tip Buck!  I've never heard of that.  I've grabbed a needle nose pliers and pulled them out.
