wyoung2153 Raw fresh green beans, bananas, and sweet potato fries (freshly cut and cooked). When I saute greenbeans now.. he sits patiently outside the kitchen staring... he gets one and nibbles on it for a minute. He gets sweet potato every so often when I get them and he LOVES them. He gets the end of my banana every morning after my workout and he looks forward to it! I have never had a dog be interesting in fruits and veggies.. it's cute.

Daisy&Lucky's Mom Daisy and Lucky both were orange fanatics. Lucky likes berries ,strawberries,blueberries but especially red raspberries . Daisy would do anything for a raw mango! Chevy and Thunder are on a meat only diet peference. They dont even eat green beans let alone fruit.

Perfect......that was pretty much my pup's staple "funny foods" as well....glad she has moved on to other foods.

My dog has quite the penchant for my chip dip....of course it needs to be on a potato chip....she'll wait patiently and when they are Lay's Potato Chips...she fully understands the "betcha can't eat just one."slogan. I tried closing the bag once without giving her any and she reverted back to her puppy " funny foods"....lesson learned.

Mister C My GSD loved asparagus. My niece's Westypoo loves raw cabbage. Odd choices in my book.

Funny Food?

Hi SGADS fans:

Athena, as you know, turned eleven in January. Her best friend from my book, GSD Kiera, turned eleven before that. I notice something really funny about both girls--they both have developed a taste for some unusual food.

Athena has taken to begging for slices of my Cuties Clementine oranges in the morning, and when Kiera visited a few months ago, I looked to find her imploring me for some of my banana. I noticed that each girl is/was so sweetly polite about it, so shyly hopeful, looking for all the world like "Would...Might I have a piece? I'd love it ever so much, if it's not too much trouble." Who could resist??

(By the way; No, I don't feed her grapes or raisins or avocado or onions or mushrooms or Macadamia nuts, or chocolate or any other forbidden foods, so let's dispense with that right away).

But the food that takes the cake (pun intended) for Athena is a mystifying new love of... wait for it... artichokes. Whenever I steam an artichoke, she sits near me, wanting some. When I first offered a leaf, she seemed to right away understand that you're supposed to bite the end, but not too hard, as one pulls the leaf out of one's mouth slowly. She allows me to do this part for her, as she has no hands, so that her little front teeth scrape it and she eats it the way we humans do. I find it utterly endearing and enchanting.

What crazy foods do your Shepherds crave? Have you all noticed this increasing as they age?

I love our funny breed!
