If it's your girlfriend's birthday, chocolates will win her over, unless she's diabetic. Perhaps flowers would make a more appropriate gift, instead. Unless she's highly susceptible to hay fever, in which case there will be no goodnight kisses. Instead, why not buy her a diamond ring? Unless she's married, and then you're in big big trouble.

If it's your boyfriend's birthday, buy him some cigars, unless he's a non-smoker, then buy him something for his new car, a carburettor perhaps. Unless he's been banned from driving, then that's not going to help. Instead, buy him some chocolates. That will make him very happy indeed, and he'll be able to give them to his other girlfriend.

Birthdays are a minefield!

Now, imagine it's your boyfriend or girlfriend's dog's birthday. Whatever you do, don't give it chocolate or it's going to develop stomach cramps, vomiting and/or diarrhoea. In that case, book a room at the heartbreak hotel.

Why not give a dog chocolate? Here's why. There's a highly toxic component of chocolate called theobromine. Humans can easily metabolize this, but dogs process it much more slowly, and it will build up to toxic levels in their system. large amounts of theobromine can produce muscle tremors in dogs, also seizures, an irregular heartbeat, internal bleeding or a heart attack.

Give the dog a bone, a chewy toy or a cat to chase. Simples.
