    Feather babies are also notorious for chomping down anything and everything they can get their beaks into...

    Kiki, my Senegal parrot, will try anything at least once. If there's food around, she's at it. Gets quite annoyed at me if I'm eating something and don't at least offer her a taste, too.

    In the cage she goes when I unload groceries... lol

    We left the dogs overnight. They have a dog feeder , multiple water bowls and dog door and a good meal before we left . Came back to a torn open bag of dog food with much of it spilled on the floor. Resounding answer, NO WAY, NO HOW!
    The only bad days are the ones you don't get.

    I was eating a donut and driving one day. Maya, the shepherd, was riding shotgun. I have about 1/2 the donut gone when Maya casually reaches over and takes the other 1/2 donut out of my hand and proceeds to eat it. I was hopping mad but realized she'd probably seen the puppy do the same thing and just learned. Our puppy is lab/eating machine mix and eats anything that doesn't eat her first. I don't trust that one with food nor do I trust Maya anymore since we've gotten the puppy.

    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    Glenn works weird hours and the only window we have together on work days is between 5 & 7 for dinner. So I indulge him and we eat at the coffee table and watch TV. Huggie Bear is 11 1/2 now but quite smart and very ornery. The hounds are usually laying in close proximity while we eat knowing a bite will be saved for them to have after we're done. They don't beg or pester us while we eat. Anyway, one night we were having duck breast, a rare treat. I had had 2 bites of my duck when all of a sudden Huggie Bear rises up like the worlds most adorable red and white land shark and snatches my duck off my plate. I was so shocked I just sat there. It had been years since any of the hounds had done something like this. Huggie Bear quickly turned her back to me and scarfed down the duck as fast as she could. She REALLY wanted that duck-it is a favorite of hers.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    I purchased at midday two sets of sandwiches. One for midday and one for either evening or tomorrow. Definately had mid day set. Came home had a workout on compute and emptying bag etc. can't find my other sandwich . No idea where it went can't find the paper either. Which dog , the eldest , no on a table too high for her to reach. Middle dog no was with me all the time . The puppy oh yes I bet she has had it and hidden the paper in middle dogs basket. She is full of fun and mischievous.but so cute.

    Lily, a Siberian mix, and Moira, a Border Collie mix, won't touch anything unless I tell them to 'Get it'. Even meat dropped on the floor is safe. That applies if I am anywhere in the house. All bets are off with Lily if I leave the house. Raw food thawing for their dinner - at least she had the courtesy to serve Moira. There was an empty plastic on each bed. Stick of butter. A loaf of thawing bread dough. That initiated a phone call to the emergency vet. I had to make her vomit before it raised in her stomach - he said it would be fatal. Hint - if you have give a dog hydrogen peroxide, do it outside. While on walks, Moira looks for bread people put out for the squirrels which is bad because she gets ear infections if she get a smidgeon of bread with yeast.

    So, I have two answers - yes, I trust my dogs if I'm in the house and no if I'm not.
