An apple a day...


I've discovered the most amazing thing...my puppies like apples! Not only that, but I've tried giving them slices of other fruits as well and they happily tuck into bananas, oranges and persimmons! I thew a couple of apples in the backyard this morning for the pups to play with and chew and upon return from work, discovered a half eaten apple (with lots of teeth marks in it!). No sight of the other apple, which means they must have eaten the whole thing!

I was talking about this to my other colleagues and apparently, their dogs love fruit and veggies too! One of them is capable of peeling a banana - she bites the top off and then starts pulling it apart! And gets absolutely annoyed at lettuce coz' she can't get a grip on the lettuce leaf. Another said how her doggie loves capsicums and gets given lots of fruits and veggies by her parents.

At obedience training, our trainer was talking about how her dogs are able to crack open macadamia nuts and eat them (and those nuts are blooming hard to crack too!). It's amazing the stuff that other people feed their pets...and you learn that the animals you once thought were mainly carnivores enjoy the same stuff that you do.

Now, shall I throw out another apple tomorrow or try a carrot? Hmmm...decisions decisions decisions...

Hehe... our dog eats almost everything: hard boiled eggs, fruits (esp the crunchy granny smiths), rice, meat (well done), fish (fillet), vegetable (and also their peel),
Anything we eat, she will try to eat (read: mooch for).

Just watching her scarf her food removes all worries and cares.

Tot of asking my bf about his dogs and fruits after reading this. Apparently his two shetlands love eating apples and durians, ahhaha...

Just read your earlier posts. Am glad that your hectic days are over with your boss back on the job.

izchan: Yeah, we had a dog who used to do that too...as well as chase after anything that moves!
