Our dog just ate a pear!
Foxes eat berry's and fruit in the wild.
Lots of domestic dogs love fruit and veg but we often don't think to give it to them. We had to fence off the strawberry patch from our Alsation as she ate all the ripe ones, checking each day to see if more were ready for her. See was great with picking gooseberries and raspberries off the bush too – much quicker than us. I think she could smell the fruit that was ready for eating. She would just leave the 'core' of any ripe rasberries hanging on the bush and she never seemed to get scratched by thorns when picking fruit, even deep into a gooseberry bush.
My mother always had to buy extra carrots, as if she was preparing them, our dog would sit and cry until she was given one or more from the bunch – she would go through loads in a week. She would go to our apple tree as well (some distance away) select a fallen apple and carry it back to the house where she could eat a bit at a time while watching the view over the fields.
Never give them raw potato though as its somewhat poisonous uncooked, both for dogs and for us.Posted 8 years agocoolhandlukeSubscriber
We were picking up pairs off the floor from our tree and dropping the ones already being tucked into by ants slugs or whatever and the dog thought it was a game so started running around with one in his mouth. We sort of left him to it and next I saw him getting another pear from the bottom of the tree (windfall one) and eating it.
I then saw the left overs of the first one.
I wouldn't have believed it unless I'd seen it myself but he was really enjoying them.
Labrador by the way so probably not that surprising.Posted 8 years agotragically1969Member
I don't think dogs are supposed to eat oinions/garlic/tomatoes though.
Or a lot of other things, including Marijuana and String 😯Posted 8 years agoDobboMember

When domiciled in Ireland as a youth, my dogs enjoyed eating sheep shit when I walked them by the river. Apparently it's something to do with wolves eating their pups crap to keep the den clean.
We take our neighbours dog out and it will eat sheep poo some times, apparently dogs only go for lamb poo as it has milk in it from the mother. According to the afore mentioned neighbour!Posted 8 years ago
