People love their dogs!  Much like, you are what you eat and an owner looks like the dog that belongs to them, we want our best friend to enjoy the same culinary treats we,  ourselves, indulge in.  It’s tough to dine on filet mignon while Fido sitting sweetly by your side, gets a can of grey mush with no flavor.  That cute face, the eyes, the limitless love with no expectations, except a walk and a belly rub.  But to overindulge means to risk health concerns and possibly a shorter life with complications.  So the answer, realize what aspects of our human food are good for the dog, particularly the specific breed and most importantly, don’t over feed.A fat pet is an unhealthy pet.  Chocolate is bad for dogs.  Dogs need tons of love, lots of sleep fun exercise and play.  A dogs social life is hugely important in their moods.  There are neighbors whom I’ve never met that know me as my pets mom.  Their own dogs force them to walk by our fenced in yard only to say hi to our dog.  Maybe it’s because her breathe smells like steak!
