Over the weekend, the doting owner of two young lab mixes purchased Cocoa Mulch from Target to use in their garden. The dogs loved the way it smelled and it was advertised to keep cats away from their garden. Their dog (Calypso) decided the mulch smelled good enough to eat and devoured a large helping. She vomited a few times which was typical when she eats something new but wasn’t acting lethargic in any way. The next day, Mom woke up and took Calypso out for her morning walk. Halfway through the walk, she had a seizure and died instantly.
Although the mulch had NO warnings printed on the label, upon further investigation on the company’s web site,
This product is HIGHLY toxic to dogs and cats.
Cocoa Mulch is manufactured by Hershey’s, and they claim that “It is true that studies have shown that 50% of the dogs that eat Cocoa Mulch can suffer physical harm to a variety of degrees (depending on each individual dog). However, 98% of all dogs won’t eat it.”
*Snopes site gives the following information:http://www.snopes.com/critters/crusader/cocoamulch.asp
Cocoa Mulch, which is sold by Home Depot, Foreman’s Garden Supply and other garden supply stores contains a lethal ingredient called ‘Theobromine’. It is lethal to dogs and cats. It smells like chocolate and it really attracts dogs. They will ingest this stuff and die. Several deaths already occurred in the last 2-3 weeks.
Theobromine is in all chocolate, especially dark or baker’s chocolate which is toxic to dogs. Cocoa bean shells contain potentially toxic quantities of theobromine, a xanthine compound similar in effects to caffeine and theophylline. A dog that ingested a lethal quantity of garden mulch made from cacao bean shells developed severe convulsions and died 17 hours later. Analysis of the stomach contents and the ingested cacao bean shells revealed the presence of lethal amounts of theobromine.
**PLEASE PASS THIS ON**

Always in my heart. Yours sincerely Louis
Harry at the arena in Milan - 20.5.13
Um. Yes. Absolutely positively yes. And Niall is their explosives supplier. Liam is the Alfred of their estate. I’m not sure what Zayn’s role is though.
YES YES I LIKE THIS. And idk Zayn can be one of Louis’ mysterious colleagues who he sometimes calls for reinforcement. Zayn usually spends the entire mission poking fun at Harry’s compulsive need to clean and fret over Louis. Louis likes Zayn but constantly snipping at him to leave his boyfriend alone does get old. Harry doesn’t put out when Louis lets Zayn get away with teasing and calling him “Mrs. Mop” etc etc.
YESSS! Ugh. And no one’s really sure if Niall lives with Harry and Louis or not because he’s ALWAYS there and Liam is constantly complaining about having to get more groceries for him. Liam is generally just exasperated by the other’s shenanigans and wonders why he even still works there/is friends with them.
YES I LOVE THIS. Louis just wants to go to his personal indoor tomb and play with all the toys Niall makes while Harry bites his lip and frets until Louis is out. (and then of course they shower together and eat a lovely meal out on the terrace and retire to their chamber to make love allll night)The Pink Sheep
