Need help with doodle and computer
Sun Apr 16, 2017 3:27pm

Hi friends,
I've been mostly a lurker for quite a while. Maggie the rescue doodle is more comfortable with us and us with her. It's nearly three years now, and she's fit in. She still has her little issue, though, in that she eats any and everything that catches her eye. Here's my question:
Does anyone know if licorice root mulch will hurt a dog who wants to munch it like lettuce?
Frank lined our beds with it yesterday and mostly they're out front, but there are two beds with it in the back, and natch, Miss Maggie headed right for them and commenced grazing like a goat. What do you think? Anyone have any experience with this?

Also, I'm on a new laptop, and I've forgotten what I did to get rid of the popups on my old computer. There's an anti-pop-up program that one of you found. Can anyone please remind me what it is?

Hope everyone is having/has had lovely spring holidays. Ours is quiet, but a lovely day. I'll post more to catch up later. I have to go put together Easter baskets for later when my grown children come over and eat as much chocolate as 6 year olds!

I do get a kick out of all the doodle puppies and growing pictures and group shots. Hugs to all,

      Kit, I don't know what kind of computer you have but I have a MacBook Pro, it is an older model. If you have a Mac and are using Safari, go to Safari Extensions and install AdBlock. Hope this helps.

        I actually did that with my Chrome, too, and so far it's good.

        I was wondering how to get rid of those PITA ads on my computer. Just installed AdBlock.

      While licorice root mulch does not contain Theobromine, it does pose a serious obstruction risk. Many mulch varieties contain essential oils and resins that, in addition to the risk for obstruction,... more

          I had never heard of Licorice Root Mulch, so I always "Google" when I don't know an answer. I'm known as Ms. Google around Brookdale Senior Living where I live!

            I have a run by the vet tomorrow to check on what I think is allergies. I'll ask about mulch, too, and get back to the Zoo on it. Thanks, though, I appreciate your thoughts.
