Chocoholics Anonymous

My dog, Butters, took a box of chocolate off the counter, ate it. Took a box of Hershey's baking cocoa off the counter and ate that, too. I got home and took the dog to the vet ER. Seven hundred dollars to get the chocolate out and administer fluids—All. Night. Long. It wasn't fun for him either.

A couple of months later, we found Butters slurping a stolen mocha frappuccino...can anyone suggest a 12-step program for canine chocoholics?
