I have found, through experimentation, that Newlie likes a lot of things that I would have never guessed. Here are some of the things he likes, but I am sure I have forgotten others.

Peanut butter, cheese, chicken, hamburger, steak, roast beef, tuna, bacon, eggs and sausage.

Broccoli, baby carrots, green beans, peas, celery, cherry tomatoes, corn, and of course, potatoes.

Mandarin oranges, apples, melon, strawberries, bananas (He has recently decided he likes them.) pumpkin, pineapple chunks and yogurt.

I give Kaiser a whole raw egg - shell and all, he carries his prize outside so carefully and then licks and licks it until the shell finally breaks and he gets the yummy stuff inside :)

Pumpkin skin - I'll peel a pumpkin for us and feed him some of the skin as a treat - he loves it!

Ack -- another script chosen that reads like a poor translation.

Peanut butter is not made from raw peanut LEGUMES. .

I participated in an organics market for close to 10 years . Many of the young people there experimented , trialed and eventually launched their products from there .
One of those now has several Raw restaurants and raw products on grocery shelves.

You have to be careful with peanuts which might be contaminated with toxins.

Chicken is not a spice . Yogurt is not sugar COATED , and it does not have germs ,

As someone who spent a lot of time around riding stables in the past, I can report most stable dogs are as fond of carrots as the horses are!

The dog I had while my husband was alive got a piece of just about everything that went into his mouth. Some of her favourites were potato skins (and potato) squash, any sort of meat, broccoli, banana, beans, peas, many different kinds of fruit. Oh, and let's not forget the beer (a VERY small amount though!) She loved it so much that the 'psst' sound of a beer cap being removed brought her running! :rolleyes2:

About the only thing she wouldn't eat was salmon skin!

Yes, I tried to stop him from doing this, but my pleas fell on mostly deaf ears. Sometimes she'd suffer the consequences of him giving her things he shouldn't have. For instance, after he suffered a stroke, I brought him home on a day pass from hospital for Valentine's day, and he shared his strawberries and ice cream with her.

Guess who had to get up in the middle of the night to let her outside when she got diarrhea from them? :rolleyes2:

Please note, grapes and raisins can be deadly to dogs. Dark chocolate can kill, too. Regular chocolate...yum! The dog in question finished off an entire box of Roger's Victorian Creams that my husband had given me as a courting gift. Not enough real chocolate in them to be a problem. The bag of licorice all-sorts she got into one night was a different story, however... :rolleyes2: Licorice is a laxative, especially in large amounts!

I've heard a handful of raisins can be deadly to a dog, but my mom's English Springer once ate an ENTIRE bunch of grapes while she was out. He climbed up on a chair, and delicately plucked them from the stems.

She didn't know they could be harmful until I told her about it. She said the only thing wrong with him was he REALLY REALLY needed to pee when she got home! So, each dog is different. When I asked my vet how he could have survive this, she said the grapes/raisins toxicity seemed to be more like an allergy, and it depended a lot on the individual dog. Pure chocolate, however, was much more toxic.

On the rare occasion I have a magnum, (thick chocolate coated good quality icecream on a stick), I eat the chocolate coating and Nitro helps me finish the icecream. For a dog, his icecream licking etiquette is awesome, apart from the drool.
