  1. Part of me wants to think dogs retain some kind of wild sense to avoid what will hurt them. But apparently dogs are no better about taking care of their health than humans.

    Luckily, Angel's Trumpet is not one I'll have to worry about in my area.

    1. Perhaps they do, at least most or some of them. But such knowledge would be instinctual and might only apply to their original "natural environment". Might not apply to imported vegetation or human creations etc. Hard to tell, would be interesting to study somehow.

      Meanwhile, it's best to actively protect them ourselves.

  2. My very favorite flower- I even have a tattoo of a red one! I have a collection of Bergmansia's (angel trumpets) and they must be brought inside to winter here but they are kept far from any of the pets. Even the dried fallen flowers smell fantastic so I am diligent about collecting fallen petals and leaves for the safety of animals and children too. (My first Bergmansia was given to me by a pregnant friend who didn't want to expose her children to the dangerous plant!)
