    I had some metwurst for munchies and Frosty said she should have some. It is pretty smelly stuff. So I ate mine. Then I got the sliver I cut for her, and took her out into the back yard and made her work for it. She didn't quite understand that she wasn't supposed to "come" the minute I turned around to face her or the second I said her name either... Or that she can do a drop if I don't have food in my hand when I give the signal. It was like "I really really want the treat so I will do everything before I'm asked" yikes. Except the drop. No I don't want to be further away from the treat. I want to put my nose right on it and inhale, ideally inhale the treat as well as the smell...

    Maybe you need to put some in a bowl before they get there and then there will be no leftovers?

    I rarely feed leftover for a couple of reasons:

    1. I usually share what I am eating with the dog at the time

    2. I don't eat meat - thus most of what I eat isn't suitable for the dog

    3. Much of what I eat has onion in it

    Is it a waste to give dogs scraps or left overs? No - esp when the alternative is chucking it in the bin

    Yep, I am with Occy. We eat on our laps in the loungeroom and all inside dogs are always given something if it is suitable for them. Just our personal preference and no harm done.
    They have all learned my both hands held palms out and all gone as signalling that it is done. They just look lovingly at us which we either do or do not respond to. Nothing is given if they are being a pest and they learned that very quickly.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    I don't think it's a waste either. I give Tay leftovers all the time. And of course they love it don't they!

    I wouldn't say it was a waste, I also am guilty of doing this in the past.

    Years ago I stopped doing this because I think their food is better for them.

    This thread is reminding me of this cartoon:



    Caption (if it is too small) reads:

    Boy I'm soooooo full, and this is the laaaaast slice of beef... guess I'll finish it off though.

    I just get so pist off with this sort of comment. Our dogs, cats what ever, are part of our families, we cooked for the kids, now why cant we cook for them now.
    I got quite angry with my daughter-in-law when told of how sick Geisha is, she said, "Well -- its only a DOG" -- Not a good thing to say to me, make matters worse, she said it to Russell as well.
