My sister DixieLee and I love to watch Mom and Dad eat. Although it hasn't happened yet, there is always the chance that some of their yummy food will fall on the floor and we will get to eat it.
We all know that there are human foods that are very, very bad for dogs. Foods like chocolate, grapes and raisins, onion, garlic and leeks, candy and baked goods with sugar and the sugar free ones with artificial sweeteners and cooked bones. Some of these foods are so bad that they can make a dog be died!
What we don't hear about so often are the human foods that are good for dogs.
I was talking with my friend Beauregard and he said his Mom feeds him a raw diet made up of totally human foods. Boy is he a lucky dog!
Our Mom is a horrible cook but there are some human foods we get that are super good for us. Here are some of our favorites:
1. Peanut butter. Mom hides pills in peanut butter. We know she is doing it but the peanut butter is so good, we don't care. You have to be careful which peanut butter you buy. It should be unsalted and have no xylitol in it cuz salt and artificial sweeteners are bad for dogs.
2, Carrots. Carrots are our favorite snack. We like carrots even better than cookies. Mom likes us to have them cuz they have vitamins and the crunchiness is good for our teeth. We like them because they are sweet.
3. Broccoli. Dad doesn't like many veggies but he loves broccoli which is alright with us cuz he give us a taste some times. Not too often though cuz it can make our tummies irritated.
4. Yogurt. Yogurt is another food that Mom can hide pills in. Dogs that are 'lergic to dairy shouldn't eat yogurt and no dogs should eat yogurt that has sugar or any artificial sweeteners.
5. Sweet Potatoes. This is Mom's very favorite food. Some people consider it a “super food” which means they have lots good stuff in them. We like them because, like carrots, they satisfy our sweet tooths.
I could tell you about others but just writing about all these good foods is making me hungry. I think I'll wander in the kitchen to see if anything is in danger of falling on the floor.
