Wow! I didn't that tomato leaves are potentially poisonous to my dogs. I also have many of the poisonous plants and some of the dog-friendly plants.

This was very educational. I have many of these plants that are poisonous, fortunately none where my dogs are at. But now rethinking about getting rid of all of them to get more dog friendly plants. This was scary to find out.
