|Dogs can have table food. Meat, for example, is perfectly fine and good for the dog. Some vegetables like carrots are okay, too. My dog loves peas. (No grapes, raisins, onions, nuts, chocolate, etc.) Other things like pasta are okay once in a while, but a dogs' digestive system wasn't designed to use carbohydrates.
One reason it's said to avoid table scraps is because in excess it can cause the dog to be overweight unless you adjust his main meal accordingly. And too many table scraps can cause other problems as well.
It's not a complete no-no, however. There are even people who feed their dogs what is considered human food (but is also appropiate for dogs) as their main diet. And that's great as long as they know how to balance it correctly. I feed my dog a diet of raw meat, bones, and organs.
That aside, I agree with the others. Cesar isn't a terrible food, but it's not a great food.
