    the avocado claim seems to come from dogs who ate the Guatemalan avocado leaves, not the Mexican fruit.  The leaves, peel, and pit of the avocado are toxic, but the meat of the fruit is fine.
    It's like the nay-sayers going around and saying meat is bad for dogs. Or apples. You have to use a bit of common sense and dig a little deeper.  Sometimes, it's just a rumor based on something like the avocado - where they found it was the leaves, skin, and pit that were bad for dogs(and horses, birds, and other animals) because they contain persin, but not the ripe flesh.

    Just because one part of a plant is toxic or inedible doesn't mean other parts are.
