Can anyone help me figure out what these plants are called?

It's two different plants, right? It's hard to tell scale, did you see that first/last one when it was flowering? Did it have little purple flowers? It *might* be "deadly nightshade" - but I am guessing you were not planning on eating those "berries" anyway!

Um. I'm not sure. I believe it's 2 plants? There are plants around the yard that have purple flowers, but I never saw them in that area. I'm just curious because if they're possibly dangerous to pets I want to make sure I dig it all up. I already got rid of most of it just in case but I'd really like to know how careful I should be with it.

Unless you have ruminants - plant-eaters - I'd not worry too much about 'em, but you should rip up the "deadly nightshade," as it can make any kids who are tempted to eat the "fruit" very sick.

I just worry the pup might get to it. She eats everything. I'm also worried Kiba some how got into something...the vet thought she must have gotten into something toxic because of her kidney levels. They said they've never seen them so high. But they also said the kidneys don't normally swell when they've gotten into toxic stuff. I'm so paranoid I'm going to lose another baby....

Will deadly nightshade cause kidney failure? I've pretty much confirmed the plant is deadly nightshade.

That stuff grows like a weed around here, and boy does it SPREAD! I pull it out and seems like 10 minutes later I have 3 more!

Yeah it's terrible. I read that a small amount can kill any animal. I'm concerned Kiba got into it. But from what I can tell it was only her kidneys that had problems...and what I read about this is it causes a number of problems. I called the vet today to ask but I think they were busy and never got back to me. I picked it all from the yard but I'm worried I missed some...
