I tossed Morning Glory seeds all around the dog kennel in hopes it would provide a nice shade cover for summer, and it sure did. It looked nice too.

The only problem is that Morning Glory is poisonous to dogs!
That's a great idea,See some poor dogs out sun all day no shade anywhere They dig holes in yard trying stay cool. You can tell who loves their animals, Great Job, Cookie in Va.
Destroy your morning glory check list of poisonous plants/vegetables/food with aspca on google the harmful list to animals will astound you.
So are sweet peas. How about a tree? Actually I hate to see dogs penned up this way.
Don't the morning glories attract a lot of bees? I'd be concerned of my 3 dogs getting bit; just a thought. Tiger lilies are toxic to cats I know; probably dogs too.
Please be cautious using morning glory's around any pets: seeds are poisonous if eaten.
