is that poisonous?

I'm sure the dogs think that all the attention to something on the ground means a treat just for them! What else would be done with such care?

In our woods, we found a red capped mushroom with white dots on the red just like in the fairytale stories! Really.

Hi WWW, I have no idea, and none of us tested it.

Barbara Anne, that sounds like an Amanita muscaria, aka Fly Agaric. It is somewhat poisonous and somewhat hallucinigenic, but interesting to see. That is one of the very very few mushrooms I can identify. And you are no doubt right about the dogs.
