Do you know what fur child is doing on April 20? Pup parents everywhere should worry about a dangerous new trend sweeping the canine world. Read on to learn the shocking tr uth about canine-abis and how to protect your innocent four-legged offspring from falling victim to the horrors of marijuana-themed chew toys.
This is Dax Joho. He was a Good Boy all his life, boasting perfect puppy school attendance with a 4.0 GPA (Good Pup Average). Then, one day in April, some friends invited him to a “420 celebration.” And everything changed.
His mother agreed to let him attend, not knowing what the true significance of the day meant and believing it instead to be “some sort of video game thing.” But she soon found out the devastating truth: 420 was actually slang for a “holiday” widely known for getting high on canine-abis (which, to be abundantly clear, is different from the human drug known as cannabis that is poisonous to fur babies).
Now her precious fur baby, who was once on track to graduate top paw of his class, suffers from acute canine-abis addiction. After just one puff of a canine-abis cigarette, she says, Dax became a different pup. His behavior changed, he started wearing different clothes — even his smell had a different musk. Her easy-going social Good Boy, now a standoffish temperamental Badass Boy.
His heartbroken mother hopes that by telling the world about Dax’s tragic story, more pup parents will know about the 420 phenomenon turning innocent Good Boys into Rabid Reefers. Luckily, there are telltale signs to help identify whether your fur baby is under the influence of canine-abis.
The most common signs of the dangerous canine drug include: pinkness around the eyes, a very pink belly, excessive begging for food, paranoid barking, disorientation, and long naps throughout the day.
Most tragically, canine-abis is known as a “gateway drug,” not only introducing addicts to even deadlier substances but also potentially spreading to other members of the family. In the case of Dax Joho, his step-sister Daphne soon followed in his misguided footsteps.
Our research revealed that pup parents should also be on the lookout for the following canine-abis related texting acronyms:
LOL: Lots of leaf
GTG: Get that ganga
BRB: Big reefer bong
BFF: Buds for free
TTYL: Trimming that yummy lettuce

So be vigilant this 420, or your fur child could be the next victim of canine-abis addiction.
