No seriously, it happens. At first the dog used to just shake it's head from the bad taste, but then apparently they acclimatise to the taste and it gets them high.
Be careful. I've known people who've had dogs who died after eating cane toads.

I explained the potential dangers to her, but she just wagged her tail. Luckily, she is content with just a good licking. Go on, do your worst....

Every kid I know including my eldest had a blast at Schoolies. Considering the numbers that go, the number that get into strife or trouble is very small. Well organised, loads of volunteer adult help if it's needed. I'd rather they went to something like this than half a dozen fly off to Malaga etc and just get hammered. Yeah shit happens but nothing that wouldn't happen elsewhere in different circumstances. The only real problem is the media blowing stuff up out of proportion and blaming Schoolies for stuff that is nothing to do with it.

I agree with this. My kids went and had a ball and didn't get into trouble and neither did their mates. They all went to a friends apartment (their parents had a holiday apartment) and had a whale of a time.

Like all news the press only show the snesationalist stuff
