My aunt just flipped out on me because I let my dog eat a grape off the floor. Freaking ours screaming because grapes can kill dogs. Then proceeds to spend the day trying to sneak my 9 month old sprite, French fries, chicken nuggets and Cheetos and can't figure out why I say no! Smh!

I guess the dog's health and safety is more important...

People are so weird!

Grapes can cause sudden fatal kidney failure in dogs. It would be more like if she was feeding your 9 month old large doses of aspirin or overdosing him on Tylenol. The things she was trying to sneak him are not generally fatal. Or if she flipped out when you gave the dog a chicken nugget.

She shouldn't be trying to sneak your nine month old anything that you don't approve of, even if it is pure organic avocado or your own pumped milk.

From my research a single grape is not going to cause fatal liver toxicity in a 95lb dog. Excessive levels of salt on the other hand could have very dangerous effects on my daughter.

Oh and I should add, I did not "give" the dog anything. There was a stray grape on the floor after breakfast and he found it. Just ticks me off. And she wonders why her children both have horrible relationships with food!

Thoughts of "hypocrite" and "screwed up priorities" (regarding aunt) come to mind.
