|Worst thing our dogs have ever had is... marshmallows. I blame my daughter, since she told me Kale liked them. But I buy marshmallows maybe twice a year, so it's not a regular deal at all.
I'm not fanatical about healthy treats on the whole. I figure a benefit of a bigger dog is them being able to deal with a little junk, just like humans do, if the base diet is healthy.
They get a couple nibbles of cheese everyday, because I wrap Kale's thyroid pills in it, unless I have something else to stuff the pill in, like leftover meat. Or the occasional french fry. If I'm eating pizza with meat toppings, which isn't very often, I end up with cheese pizza because they get the toppings.
They get Dentastix every night. It's THE bedtime cue. It was the Ace-run-to-crate cue, until she got good enough to have free roam of the house overnight.
Other than now looking for "Made In America", I'm not too fussy about the dog treats I buy for them. They're treats, not a big part of their diet.
If I'm on a long road trip with Ace, I don't give her breakfast because it would just be regurgitated. So she gets a nibble of whatever I have on the road to tide her over until we reach our destination. Usually cheeseburger and fries. Then her quality kibble at night.
I heard that Starbucks will give dogs a "Puppucino" - a little bit of whipped cream - if the owner buys coffee. I would let my dogs have that, if I were to go to Starbucks with them, but I don't. But I kind of want to
I spoil these dogs. But Ace is a good weight, and Kale is heading back that way now that his low thyroid level has been caught and is being treated.
