2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction.

My mom and I do some gardening and yard work and we're getting ready to plant some new flowers and shrubs, with the new puppies what should we stay clear of that could be dangerous to them?

or any flowers that are safe if the dogs eat them...Aurora eats everything! (except her dog food)

Does Aurora have a history of eating plants? There are a lot of plants that can be toxic to dogs if ingested but most dogs don't typically eat plants, save for the occasional plant and grass. I have some plants in my yard that are toxic to dogs if ingested including azaleas, lily of the valley, hibiscus, hosta, and a tomato plant. We also visit our second vacation home regularly which has lots of rhododendron (potentially poisonous if ingested) and none of our dogs or visiting families' dogs have ever eaten any of the plants and none have ever gotten sick.

Here's a list of plants that can be toxic to pets:

"Toxic" can range from an upset tummy to death. Having had a cat die from eating part of a flower arrangement, I wouldn't risk having it in the house.

That being said, I don't know plants. I'm not sure what variety of "ficus" the ones you mention are. ASPCA does list the following 3 plants as toxic, and they do have the word "ficus" in their scientific name.

1. Weeping Fig
2. Fig
3. Indian Rubber Plant

I did also find ficus pumila on this toxic list. Not sure about ficus repens. Maybe someone who knows more about plants than me can help.
