Colorado River Toad also known as Sonoran Desert Toad:

These toads can be deadly to a dog.  The toad releases a highly toxic paralyzing psychedelic toxin called butotenine when threatened.

If a dog sniffs, touches, or bites this toad, there have been reports of full grown big dogs dying in a matter of minutes.

I find these in our backyard mostly during rainy periods.  When I let the dogs out the back patio to go potty, typically their early morning potty is before sun-up, I go out with  them and look around with a flashlight for anything that might harm them – like scorpions, poisonous Arizona Giant Centipede, or poisonous toads.  This morning about 2:30, I was very surprised to find one, with our very dry 25% RH, 109d F temperatures, on the patio where my dogs sniff around.  I’ve never seen one during daylight hours.

When I find one, I always put on a nitrile glove, put them in a plastic bag, walk across the street to the greenbelt and let them loose.

About 11 years ago, right after adopting our little Yorkie male, I started studying dogs - every aspect.

I said back then that soon in our civil societies, dogs will become THE most important companion and our closest non-human being on the planet.

They are truly an amazing creature!

https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/an-airport-in-finland-is-using-dogs-to-detect-the-coronavirus-and-researchers-say-they-are-close-to-100-accuracy/ar-BB19rzhC?ocid=msedgntp

Interestingly the accuracy of the best two types of tests for the COVID-19 corona virus have a reported rate of false negatives — that is, a test that says you don’t have the virus when you actually do have the virus  - is as low as 2% and as high as 37%. The false positive rate — that is, how often the test says you have the virus when you actually do not — should be close to zero. Most false-positive results are thought to be due to lab contamination or other problems with how the lab has performed the test, not limitations of the test itself.

In the above Finland article, an 8 year old greyhound mix took just seven minutes to learn how to detect the corona virus's scent!

There have been billions of dollar and 10s of thousands and man-hours spent on developing just 2 tests for the Covid-19 virus!

If you are interested in learning more about your dog...  https://www.dogster.com/lifestyle/dogs-sense-of-smell-facts#:~:text=I%E2%80%99ve%20seen%20figures%20indicating%20that%20a%20dog%E2%80%99s%20sense,most%2C%20odors%20at%20concentrations%20of%20parts%20per%20trillion.

Just goes to show how stupid an intelligent being can be when driven by fear, for both tests.  Nearly 12 months into the release of the virus by the Chicoms, it only has only infected a confirmed .49% of the global population with a 3% death rate of confirmed infections or about twice as many that die from the flu each year.  Training dogs to detect a wuhan is "a closing the barn door after the horse has ran away" solution, what we need is to train them to detect the body's chemical/biological reaction to a virus, allowing them to detect both known and unknown viruses.

These are commonly contaminated.

Cow hide and pig ears should NEVER be given a dog.  They are dangerous and can easily become lodged in their esophagus, stomach, or intestines.  They do not digest.

Dog food that is contaminated happens way too often!

Sadly it is not usually reported or discovered until many dogs die a painful death!

For those who are always interested in learning about dogs in general, and hopefully their own breed.

Here's a very interesting article from a renowned canine scientist.

https://www.yummypets.com/mag/2014/06/24/39237/stanley-coren-dogs-intelligence-ranking

So what does the intelligence ranking mean?

Well... whatever breed(s) you happen to own, you should consider all aspects of the dog's personality and all training aspects.

Most obedience and training issues and failures is not primarily because of the dog's intrinsic intelligence ranking or its environment - it's the lack owner's knowledge of the breed and the owner's training!

I should post a picture of my aunt and uncles Newfoundland happily resting in the snow storm. He looks like he weathered a blizzard being complete covered in snow. They couldn’t convince him to come inside initially. Eventually their other dog, that prefers the couch inside, convinced him to come in for the night.  The Newfoundland loves the snow and cold and prefers to be outside no matter the conditions.
