Our dogs eat dog food but do enjoy sharing a plate of leftovers after our dinner.

For dogs, I think these two are fairly picky eaters. They actually spit out what doesn't appeal to them whereas some of my pets in the past would look to see if the other one was eating and would feel obligated to eat something yucky just so the other one didn't get a bite more.

lol..yes Jan, I have that situation with Nelson. But, he will only eat something new if offered by hubby after he has seen hubby eat it. Then thats OK. Not from me tho'. Oh no!!
This is the very same ferocious guard dog that hurls his 60 kg frame onto my lap if a car backfires nearby or the Army are practising on the firing range or there are firecrackers about.
I must make sure any crooks about dont exploit his Archilles heel!

Dalai is another matter. We are still coming to terms with his gorging meal like it is his last one. I have begun to do them in smaller lots spread throughout the day. Still gorges.

In the book of life, the answers are NOT in the back.

Lyn, you could try what we used to do with our horses that were greedy. We'd put large (so they couldn't be swallowed) rocks in their feed so they had to work around them and couldn't bolt their food. It might work for Dalai...or he'd toss food and rocks all over the kitchen.

Oh oh oh, I forgot to tell you. Your suggestiion about putting dog p00p in the holes Roxy was digging in seemed to work. We had the 2 large holes and Mr HB put some in one hole, covered it and patted down the dirt. He just put dirt in the 2nd hole. She dug up the 2nd hole again last night but didn't touch the first one. I think you might have saved Roxy from a very very stern scolding.

Both my Aussies love brussels sprouts. With or without butter, cooked or raw.
I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.

My ex's family had a beagle, named "Snoopy" (what else )... his everyday dinner was exactly what everyone else ate in the house, they just made an extra portion for him and he cleaned up everything... good doggie who also ate his vegetables, too!! Probably it was not an ideal thing from a point of proper canine diet, but he was one of the robustest, most hyper little piggie, ah I mean doggie I have ever seen, and lived healthy happy 16 years.

My cat Hobbes had a very strange habit, every time I put on a lotion (body cream) on my hand, leg etc. He came straight over and started licking on them... I know some of them were like vanilla or peach scented, but I couldn't imagine them tasting like that as well... weird boy he was!!

Barley and Rye, huh? Dog Food Ale anyone??

Our dachsund gets dog food and dog treats fed to her, but she also eats nearly any food or beverage she can sneak or get ahold of. We try not to feed her people food, but she has been caught several times up on a TV tray where my wife has left a cereal bowl. Guess she just wants to make sure it was truly empty...
