I just found out that Ronin likes strawberries...(so far it's the only fruit we've given him to try)

I can never manage to finish them up before they go bad and hubby doesn't like them, so i never bought them. But...

now I have a strawberry eatin' buddy, so i can buy them and they won't go to waste! lol

Bananas and carrots are a favorite among the dogs in this house.

Pretty much everything that was mentioned, plus oranges and coconut as well.
In the summer the dogs get diluted home made chicken broth with different pieces of fruit and veggies in a frozen mix:

i know people say grapes are toxic and i'm NOT saying you should feed them to your dog, but i've had grape vines for fifteen years and my dog ate them every day during the month they came in season for fourteen years til she died. (and not from grapes, lol.)

my dogs like green beans right off the vine. they carry them around like long skinny bones. anything not right off the vine and they ignore. one used to delicately get strawberreis off the bush so i had to plant them somewhere else. i will toss apple cores like balls and they will run and chase it and bat them around til they eat them.

Apples, carrots, green beans, collards, arugula (only Nero). They get bits and pieces of my iguanas salad on occasion.

Red- that stand is so neat! Right now we feed our dogs with a little home made stand too, but did you make that or did you buy it?

Right now, I haven't fed Chico (4 months) any fruits. He's had lettuces so far, but is it safe to give him fruits now?

Ruby seems to like everything!
broccoli/squash/peas/green beans/carrots/lettuce
banana/apple/pineapple/mango/strawberries/melon/oranges/apricots < she 'picks apricots' off the ground when they fall off.

-basically anything I make 'chopping' sounds with on the cutting board gets her attention! LOL And she'll follow me around if I have a banana for 'her bite'.

Oscar is a very picky eater. He likes frozen broccoli and frozen cauliflower a lot, but he had to be taught to like them by mixing up a kong with liver and yogurt and other goodies. He also likes fresh blueberries and dried cranberries (dried, because that's what I get for me) and cantaloupe and other melons. He eats peas and most other veggies if they are mixed in with his other food.

He hates carrots and bananas, and will take either from me and put them on the floor. It doesn't matter how small I chop them up and mix them in with his food, he will pick them out. A few weeks ago, I got into a stubborn snitch of my own, and didn't feed him for a day, but put carrots in his bowl. He did eat them then, but you wouldn't believe how much of a grudge can be expressed with a crunching noise is a dog bowl.

I did buy some dog treats that are supposed to be super healthy that are carrot or banana wrapped in chicken, and he loves them. :dunno:

None from me lol Unless I cook them with sardines or fish or something equally smelly. Sometimes I can get them to eat frozen banana chunks.

At my older bro's house...they will eat ANYTHING. Raw squash, bananas, broccoli, literally anything.

So if my dogs need a good veggie intake, I just swing by the bros and bring veggies, then have him feed them to the dogs roflmao
