last night i woke up because i heard a crinkling sound coming from my kitchen area. i peaked out over my covers (my kitchen, bedroom and living room are all one room) and saw my dogs little bottom wiggling around while her nose was burried deep in my banana stash.
I'm not surprised because sometimes i come home to find that she has pulled banana peels or mango pits out of my compost bucket to munch on. whenever i am chopping veggies, she waits patiently for stray pieces to fall on the floor.
i dont have the money to buy her expensive vegan dog food, but im starting to think she might be able to live off of the scraps of my fruits and veggies. she seems to love them.
whenever i take her to visit my parents, my dad says "you are trying to turn this dog vegetarian" and i say "no dad. i just like to give her treats when she's good and i dont have left over lamb shanks in my freezer like you do."
i guess he's right though. people often remark on how they cant believe she actually likes some of the treats i through her way. i guess i am converting her. i just didnt realize it. in my opinion its all for the best. she could stand to lose some weight anyway.
anyone else have pets who have an unusual taste for fruits and veggies?
omg this is so cute i cant take it.
my problem now is that i am moving home with my parents in a few weeks. my mom spoils her like crazy with bones (left over from all the steaks she and dad eat), store-bought treats, raw hides, you name it. one time we were eating dinner, and Rosie had finished her bowl so she was hanging out by the table. my mom tried to sneak out of the room and get Rosie a SEDCOND bowl of food. thank god i caught her. i dont know why but she is compelled to feed this dog and she will not stop! she's gonna go crazy if i tell her to cut all that out. both her and dad think i am mistreating her or something. according to the vet, she's in perfect health.
i really need to be assertive this summer. she is my dog. i paid mad money for her and i raised her from 10 weeks old. i get to decide what she eats. hopefully i can undermine my mother and get her off the dehydrated dog food.
This will be great practice for setting boundaries with your parents! :D
Here is a new vegpet resource, a quick way to get the info. in addition to the threads on 30BaD: http://yourcybercourt.info/arveg/vegpets.html
