While the weird things dogs will eat is amusing, if you feed your dog people food, please be aware that some foods we eat are bad for dogs.
Grape and raisins are very toxic to dogs
Bread Dough (yeast) can poison your pet (gastric distention, respiratory problems, death)
Chocolate can kill your pet (depends of many factors - type of chocolate, amount consumed, size and health of dog)
Moldy Food (no moldy cheese you hate to throw away)
There are many other people foods that are bad for dogs. Some will surprise you.
I am not a vet but this info is available on the internet from those that are. Just search on "food bad for dogs".
Remember your dog will never have the intelligence greater than a 6 year old child.
Would you let your 6 year old make his/her own decision about what to eat?

Yes, I know wolfs and other animals, in the wilds, eat what they want. They also have short life spans.
And your house pet is not a wolf (I hope). Dogs are domesticated animals that bare no resemblance to wild animals. They depend on us to care for them and in return they give total love.
So be kind to your buddy and feed him dog food.

my cat loves cantaloupe, as well as watermelon and honey dew melon.

like papaya as well. won't eat fish or chicken in any state raw or cooked. ditto shrimp.

This being a cooking forum, at least you guys could call "kitty snacks" by its proper name: Feline Fudge
Don't know what pony snacks are called, but I bet they're heavy on the ivermectin flavor during worming times.

My two older dogs don't really eat anything I would say is weird. They'll eat any food item I toss they're way, my GSD just looks at it longer and chews. My Presa snatches it out of mid air and it's gone. My puppy hasn't gotten anything much except kibble, but he seems fond of hair..... He always has some of my GSD's hair hanging from his mouth, whether he pulls it directly out of her tail or finds a tumbleweed on the floor.

Dealing with other people's dogs I've had the misfortune of running into some very interesting (and embarrasing to them) "food groups" , but I've also saved them time in the laundry room looking for missing items

Omigosh, what a fun thread! We used to have a terrier, Montgomery, who feasted on locusts after one of the 17-year appearances. He ate them like they were potato chips and relished them.

We also had an Himalayan cat, Topaz, who loved frozen broccoli. Gobbled it up like it was Cracker Jack. Topaz was an incredible kitty. Probably one of the most beautiful cats I've ever seen and a "real" kitty. No stuck-up purebred snobbery. She was a doll and the whole family mourned when she died.

My dog loves fruits and vegetables. These are the veggies that he like cooked: asparagus, broccoli, spinach, zucchini, and carrots. He likes many raw veggies: radishes, broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots. His favorite fruits are oranges, apples, and bananas. It is a good thing that he likes meat or I would think that he had become and vegetarian on me.

Our dog loves fruits and veggies. Apples, oranges, strawberries, kiwi, carrotts, and junk food like gummies and twizzlers courtesy of my husband

We recently moved, and have a lot of cats around here, so my dog has taken to eating cat poo odd, but true as others have mentioned. Protein I guess. Will try to break him of that nasty habit.
