Ive known for a long time that I have a defective dog.
Any self respecting pup eats Proper Dog Foods like meat and... well... meat. Sometimes grass.
But while Arnieman loves meat... he also loves my vegan chili, roasted vegetables, Pop-Tarts (cherry), banana bread, hell, the boy even begs for fake bacon. And its not that begrudging "*sniff* *sniff* *mouths it for a bit* *spits it out* *sniff*' 'eating'-- he WANTS it. There is nothing he wont eat. What kind of dog begs for roasted vegetables??
Well here is an example of a quality hound-- He refuses to touch low fat jerky:
Right with you, Bro! Low-fat sucks!!!
One of Max Bear's favorite goodies was broccoli. For serious. I can't abide the stuff, myself, so anytime I ordered Chinese food, he always ate all of my miniature trees.
I've seen other comments elsewhere on the internet that there are a lot of dogs that don't like the smell of lamb.
My dog loves borscht, hot sauce, salad dressing, and any kind of orange vegetable/fruit (carrots, sweet potatoes, yams, pumpkins, cantaloupe).
my beagle, since he was but a whelp, sits under the apple tree carefully rotating apples between his paws and his slavering maw - which results in perfectly hollowed out appleskins all over the back lawn. he is also partial to ice cubes, so whenever i fix a whisky soda or G and T he must have his tribute. funny creatures, canines. so like us.
"What kind of dog begs for roasted vegetables??"
My hound eats broccoli as if it were candy, it's always been a favourite of his.
Also raw cabbage, brussel sprouts, every cooked vegetable, and most fruit, including tangerines, and we also share cherries...
Dogs are omnivores, vegetables are good for them. Arnie isn't defective, he's smart.
One of my friends growin gup had a lab with strange allergies. He couldn't do most dog food or treats, so his treat of choice were carrots. He was always pleased when my friend babysat my guinea pig, because it meant more carrots.
My cat likes garlic mashed potatoes, yogurt, fresh heirloom lettuce (not storebought iceberg, mind you, and I must hold the head for her so she can tear pieces off) and anything sweet. She is not allowed to eat sweet stuff, 'cause I don't want the fun of giving her insulin shots, but she Force-whammies her daddy into giving her tastes.
Hellmouth eats everything. He isn't supposed to have it (garlic and shallots) but he would rather have a teaspoon of Mulberry Street toss-over-sauce than a bucket of bacon.
I don't understand dog physiology, they can eat the contents of a litter box, half the Christmas tree ornaments, a shoe and wash it all down with toilet water.
The next week they die because somebody gave them a grape.
I once had a cat who loved ants. Apparently the formic acid makes them cat sweet tarts.
My dog eats everything - for a while we thought she didn't like olives...until she ate a plate of sliced olives - turns out she can't break through the skin of whole ones.
Her newest trick is knocking over my beer if I leave the room. No mess (she cleans it all up), but she's a little dog so she usually starts falling down soon after...
