|No, what they are saying is, simply, that just because you CAN do something, doesn't mean you should.
This is an ADAPTATION. Dogs evolved this way, under what many would consider less than ideal conditions, being fed scraps and leftovers. Of course they adapted, else they would not be as wildly successful as they are now.
But think of it like this. What is POSSIBLE, is not always ideal. Wolves, in times of extreme hunger, will eat a larger variety of things to stay alive, including various fruits and grasses. Does that mean that fruits and grasses are what should be making up any considerable portion of the animal's diet under ideal conditions? IE, that they cannot survive without them?
Of course not.
And I can't speak for most people, but I strive for optimum. What are the best possible conditions I can set for these dogs, to thrive at their absolute best?
I do as I see fit. Others are free to do what they feel is best, but that does not change my feelings on the matter.
