I had a cat who loved chocolate cake. It was the first thing I ever caught her eating off my plate. She didn't want more than a little taste. The vet said that if she only ate a small amount, it probably wouldn't do her any harm. She lived to 15 1/2 y.o., having eaten it from her first year. It never made her puke.

I trained a Saint who would do anything for toast. Another loved mini marshmallows. One of my dogs loved squash--she'd go in the compost and eat the shells. Another loved baking powder biscuits (the only time she'd counter surf). Yet another loved kale. He'd steal it off the counter when I brought it in from the garden. And yet another would raid the asparagus patch every year (I'd get the first few stalks, after that, it was a race between us to see which of us would get to the new stalks first).

Funny, my bread loving dog was a Saint/Lab mix.
