Cannabis and canines don’t mix

Border collie Rae raced through her first agility course like a champ at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds this past weekend, weaving and jumping with the nimble responsiveness for which her breed is known.

But a few hours after a “potty walk” around the grounds, her owner, Diane Szczepanski of Sebastopol, noticed her almost 3-year-old dog was kind of out of it.

Soon after, the dog fell deathly ill, trembling on the kitchen floor, semi- comatose and having lost bladder control, Szczepanski said.

A frantic trip to the pet emergency room and $300 later, Rae is fine — with a diagnosis of marijuana toxicity. The Emerald Cup, a celebration of all things cannabis, was being held at the fairgrounds over the weekend at the same time as the canine agility competition. Apparently, Rae had ingested some kind of pot — in a discarded joint, loose or maybe in one of the many creative edible products made with the herb.
