It is a grass, so generally safe. But the leaves are rough, I read somewhere they can cause irritation and minor bleeding. But otherwise it's not harmful.

Maybe just needed a little 'cleanse'.

Maggie came up the hallway to where I am sitting a few minutes ago.  She had something hanging out of her rear end.  I cleaned it off, and it looks like bamboo leaves. (We have a bamboo stand in the back yard.)  Then I found them all down the hallway floor.  Gross, but I guess it won't harm her, I hope.

Yep. I have a hard time calling the good ones pets.Parakeets are pets, hamsters are pets, but a good dog or cat is really a family member.

Yeah, they can be a bit of an obligation. We decided some time ago that we didn't need any more kids or animals. Then we inherited a grandson who is still a work in progress. {#Doh}

But I love labs. A young couple, Barbara and Steve, moved next door to us about 27 years ago - no kids, but a black lab named Holly, a really sweet lady. About a year later, Barb called us late one night to tell us they were going to the hospital because the baby was on it's way. After they left, Holly started howling mournfully, feeling that something was wrong. The next day they brought home baby Thomas, who was immediately adopted as her own by Holly. I remember seeing Thomas toddling through their front yard and Holly getting between Thomas and the street and nudging him gently back toward the house.

I couldn't decide whether to put this here or More Cuteness. My friends were puppysitting today for this sweet little girl...she looks a little uncertain. Maybe it's because she's barely gotten used to her new humans - and they leave her here with strangers and two other dogs that she's never met.

Dogs are proving to be more in tune to human communication than any other animal, but how much they really understand about people’s intentions is up for debate.

Some dogs do. The problem is that most dog breeds are very, very recent, i.e. not much older than a some hundreds of years. Even the oldest domesticated dogs (close to wolves) are far more recent than homo sapiens sapiens.

It would be interesting to know whether wolves can point (although they too have continued evolving, like the other apes that split off from our part of the evolutionary tree millions of years ago).

I have cats as big as dogs!

Human gestures?  Dogs point.  Since apes have trouble with understanding pointing, its more probable that humans have evolved to understand dog gestures.

PS:

Trainability

Dogs display much greater tractability than tame wolves, and are, in general, much more responsive to coercive techniques involving fear, aversive stimuli, and force than wolves, which are most responsive toward positive conditioning and rewards.<199> Unlike tame wolves, dogs tend to respond more to voice than hand signals.<200>
