    Liquorice overdose in an animal is a messy business, to be avoided at all costs...lol

    For reference, I have heard that cheese can cause constipation in dogs if too much is given.

    Maybe it was horse treats - for trick training horses.

    Never mind - no way I'd feed it to anyone or anything...

    Our foster kelpie sampled anything she could pull off the bench too. I can only remember the hot chillies now. She only nibbled at one though and didn't go back for more.

    My cat loves oil. I regularly found her licking the bottle of massage oil in the bathroom when we lived with friends for a while. She also likes peanut butter.

    Tara has become very fussy, and funny about food in her old age. She will still upend the kitchen bin and spread the contents if she smells anything appealing in there, but fortunately she is no longer agile enough to get up onto a table to consume whole cakes. One year on my birthday a friend threw a box of Cadbury Roses over my fence....and she ate the lot. She likes to eat my lemon sherbet lollies and jelly beans......and she really likes corn chips.....but I've seen her pick up a bit of vegetable covered in meat juice....then spit it back out.

    The office dog has been known to steal whole apples, and other more "doggy" things such as lamb sangas from staff members bags.

    He also goes mental for carrot, often making puppy dog eyes at the office vegan so she'll share.

    I suppose the cherry ripe story would fit here...

    Was one of mum's fave treats and she put a cherry ripe on top of her bag of stuff to take with her on an outing and when she picked up her bag - she noticed the cherry ripe didn't seem quite right. It looked normal but it felt a bit light on...

    her evil hound had opened the pack, removed the cherry ripe and demolished it leaving the pack seemingly intact on the bag.

    After that my mum believed the "dingo took my baby" story including removing the baby from the wrapper (onesie thing) without doing much damage to the wrapper.

    And I guess it says something about the lack of chocolate content in a cherry ripe - the evil hound was fine.

    I recently read that an average sized dog needs to eat about 200g of chocolate to get sick from it.

    If your mum thought that was impressive, she'll like Banjo's shopping trolley story too.

    I once left one of those bag shopping trolleys in the lounge room, still half full with pantry stuff. At the bottom, under a few cans and other things, was a 6-pack of 250ml milk cartons, held together by tough plastic.

    When I came home, I found 2 of those cartons, pierced and emptied, on the carpet. The trolley was still upright, exactly where I left it. Nothing else had been taken out. The remaining 4 cartons were still at the bottom of the bag.

    To this day, I have no idea how on earth she did that.

    I train with frui.........t.Apple pieces and, rockmelon, watermelon (messy)...One dogs loves apple but hates pear. they also steal fruit, especially berries, mulberries, strawberries and all the stonefruits. But never eat the stones, so i do not worry. And I don't worry about apples as mine self-serve all the time and it has not harmed them. I think the size of my dogs also help. We also have cabbage thieves, I have a really funny video of them all eating cabbage still in the garden.........Sometimes think I should post it to funniest home video

    My dogs used to steal the apples from the crate on the verandah. We lived in an apple growing cold climate and our neighbour used to give us the apples The verandah was certainly cool enough to store them in winter and the dogs helped themselves ...

    My new doggy addition eats the cabbages from the garden too!
