Now I don’t know about you, but I’m seeing a pattern here of Golden Retrievers who are eating things they shouldn’t be. This week it’s Angel, who has a taste for coffee. Angel’s family suspected she may be a little unwell when they noticed that she was lethargic while on a walk, and not long after, she vomited something that smelled suspiciously like coffee.
Coffee is Toxic to dogs and can cause elevated blood pressure, tremors and in severe cases, seizures and even death.

Angel was sent home later than night for some well-earned rest.
