You'd think it was that she knew they were bad for her, except for
the way she behaves when there's chocolate around! That I know is
very bad for them, but she loves her dog chocolate, and there's
little doubt she'd gobble up any chocolate she could get hold of.

Sounds right to me. And I forgot - the girls correct me when I use

think it came from "Sister, Sister" on the tv, but I thought it funny
in light of Dogsbody.)
Glad to hear from you again, Janice.
