    hmmm, symptoms sound rather similar to those of alcohol, which we do not percieve of a poisonous, and at thsi time of the year give to children as a treat… Ok you need a bit more than a 3 berry equivalent. How about monkshood? I grow that & it’s supposed to be poisonous too?

    Hmm, Joe… poisoning dogs for yelping… interesting.
    If karma is as true as they say, and Nightshade is the berry of the being they call “Devil,” then if you hurt the little beast, you should expect to have a visit by Dr. Karma, himself. lol

    Night post, HiggledyGarden, very informative. I’m trying to find out if the berries that I was so tempted to eat as a child, was in fact, Nightshade. Looks very similarly.

      Glad to be of assistance…Higgledy Garden is here to help answer your garden poisoning queries ;) Nightshade is VERY tempting for kids…I saw some a few months back and my mouth started to water…very big, very dark…and VERY VERY glossy. Peace.

    I love this site! Found it while researching a way of poisoning my neighbour’s horrible yelping, screeching little dog.

    You restored me to good humour so it’ll live – one more day (need to do more research).
