Chocolate-loving pooch Duggie ended up needing medical treatment – when he wolfed down seven Easter eggs.
The cocoa-coloured four-and-a-half year-old labrador sneaked into a bedroom to seize the forbidden tasty treats.
“We found him surrounded by torn boxes and silver paper – with no sign of any of the eggs,” said owner Claudia Davis, aged 38 and from South Yardley.
“Duggie has a real sweet tooth but chocolate is poisonous to dogs and he quickly needed to have a vomit-inducing injection, as well as plenty of fluids to flush out the dangerous toxins.”
Luckily she discovered what her dog had done in time and Duggie has suffered no ill-effects from the incident.
