Strawberries?

Postby Libby » Sun Mar 22, 2009 8:17 pm

I came back from my walk with Gypsy, and went to my mom's house. Came out of the bathroom and she was feeding the dogs strawberries lol

And they were actually eating them :huh?: I can't get them to eat anything healthy/vegatable-ish unless its coated in something meaty and smelly lol

So, are strawberries ok for dogs? I've never heard anything bad about them.

They're ok :)

My little punks raid the strawberry patch every year. They always wait until the berries are juuuust about ready to pick, too.

Bastards. lol

Oh my goodness - everyone here loves them! Hank'll even eat the steams/tops if you leave a bit of strawberry on there.

I buy them all out when I see them in the bargain produce bin.

Our dogs raid the strawberry patch too. Then in the fall they pick all the raspberries off the lower canes. And they pull down the corn stalks if we're not watching, and heaven help the cherry tomatoes. They love tomatoes straight from the vine. And for some weird reason, they all love brussell sprout stalks (not the sprouts, just the left-over stalks, which make yummy chew toys, I guess).

Who said dogs were strictly carnivores???

My pups wait for me to finish the strawberries and beg for the tops. We commonly share fruit/veggies, nothing gets wasted in this house!!

Even V. will occasionally eat a strawberry.

They must be special...she spits out apple, pear & banana.

Anything wrong with letting her try a piece of orange?

You can let V try orange, but I'll be very surprised if she eats it!

My mom's GSD eats oranges. She will even eat the peel and all, but I don't think that is very good for her lol

My dogs will only eat oranges if I peel the the skin of the actual flesh of the orange (not the rind, the clearish skin of each segment). SPOILED!?

Otherwise, they will take it, chew it up and spit it out to just get the juice.

A friend tried to offer Tully a piece of orange once, and Tully wanted nothing to do with it. My dogs will eat almost anything. But not oranges, apparently.
