It's true. He once went two days without eating, before he got his imported Parmesan topping. And it's really good dog food, not cheap junk.

(It's a perverse universe where a dog demands imported cheese on his dog food but can't be trusted to leave a cat box alone.)

That's what I was thinking too. I had a Siberian husky like that, okay, it wasn't imported cheese, but darned picky about what kind of dog food.

Please correct me if I am wrong, but it is my understanding that dairy products (cheese included) are not good for dogs. Aloong with chocolate.

Cheese, OK. Chocolate, a definite no.

I know the dogs and chocolate rule is correct, but, my SIL had a husky that lived for about 15 years. He cooked a meal every day for the dog, even freezing meals ahead for when he was away. Dessert every night was a small bag of M&Ms. Something the dog looked forward to eagerly.

Yeah, they do love chocolate! It inhibits something in their blood, and little dogs can die from it. Big dogs may or may not get sick. Not worth the risk. Dark chocolate is worse than milk chocolate.

Well, my dog is in no chocolate danger. Cheese is one thing, but he's not getting any of my chocolate. He can do sad doggy eyes all he wants. (He's really not a begger. He just has a way of sitting completely still and staring into space when his dinner is late.)

I knew there was something about cheese and dogs. Spike reminded me what it is. It is okay for them, they just don't produce the enzymes to digest it. Teddy loves cheddar cheese, but Spike will not feed it to him for that reason. Teddy is too small to handle it.
