Dogs and fruits and veggies.

Do any of you have dogs that like fruits and veggies?

Here's a list of Skyes favorites:

TOMATOES, pickles, grapes (red seedless), carrots, apples, tabouli salad,
and potatoes.

Her favorite thing to do in the morning when I let her out is run right to
my garden and stare at the tomatoes, hoping I can find one ripe enough for
her to go chase and then eat.

Anyone else have "vegetarian" dogs?  LOL

Your post reminded me...don't touch Skye when she's eating corn on the cob!
LOL

I wonder....are these inherent tastes, or do humans just broaden a dogs'
horizons?  ;-)

Good point...I have heard that one, too, so Skye doesn't even get a bite of
pizza with them on it.

No chocolate either.

Kristi

BTW:  When Skye eats corn, she mimicks me...she chews it right off the cob.
When it's down to the husk, she's finished with it.

My dogs love nearly all fruits & veggies, but the ultimate favorite is
melons. Especially watermelon. My dogs are normally we behaved, but you
cannot even attempt to bring watermelon in the house without having both
dogs in your face, screaming. Sometimes I will go buy a small watermelon,
and bust it open in the driveway. The dogs will clean it up, rind and all.

In Germany, they first came for the communists, and I didn't speak up
because I wasn't a communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't
speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and
I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the
Catholics and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Catholic. Then they came
for me -- and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.

Don't let them ingest the cob part, though.  That will ream out their
insides.  Really bad for them.

i must admit that some foods i introduced were modified so the dog might
taste them (see peeled grapes!)...... however, corn on the cob has been a
favourite of ALL my dogs, big, small and in between.... i wonder if the dogs
would attempt to husk a cob and chow down if it wasn't cooked for
them???.......

i have seen dogs pulling carrots from the ground...... rutabagas and a few
other root veggies...... oh, green beans! as well

perhaps the dogs watch the deer grazing in my veggie garden? (at parents
acreage)

I KNEW there was something weird about those two (Brando & Buster).  Now I
guess they'll be roaming the neighborhood attacking defenseless melons now
too! ;-)

Ahhhhh start the hysteria! Parents, take your melons off the streets! It's
one of those vicious "Melon-Bulls"

Baby, (the nerd-weiller) will eat just about anything that you give her.

The other night she was in the kitchen with me mooching anything she could
get her lips on, so I gave her a black olive.  She kinda gave me one of
"those faces", rolled it around in her mouth a few times, and munched it up.

Later that night, my friend Lucy was eating some cucumber slices in Italian
dressing, and of course, Baby was right there wanting one.  "She won't eat a
cucumber" I was told...

Let's just say, that "twang" from the dressing was almost as fun to watch as
peanut butter on the roof of her mouth!

But she ate it and came back looking for more!

they definately will!!  I had to start keeping the corn on top of/in the
fridge until it was actually in the pan..  and condem Loki to the outside
until I was done or he would steal them!  he will throw growl and generally
attack until he totally shredded them.  also, he will dig through the trash
to find the little nubbin ends that get thrown away..  *sigh* I miss my big
lunk-headed doggie  :(

Onions are apparently quite toxic to dogs, particularly when raw. I would
try to avoid allowing a dog to acquire a taste for onions. A little bit now
and then is generally okay unless the dog is sensitive to onions.

Nico too.  *grins*  He's just like his mommy.  Loves them fruits and veggies.
Though, for some reason he hates bananas....  I can't quite figure it.

Nico loves a salad, and will eat anything if it's got ranch dressing on it.
*laughing*  Won't touch lettuce without the dressing, but with even a spot of
that ranch it's down the hatch.  *grins*

You know, if my dogs ever DID escape, I could see finding them rummaging
through people's gardens :^)
