Welcome, Stewie is very handsome , and I just had to say that my Sophia was born the day after he was! You can't tell by the close-up shot, but they look just alike.
As for the food, I don't plan on letting her discover "people food".

I forgot about peanut butter, it is high in protein, but also full of calories, might be good for dogs that need to put on weight, but I don't know what amount they can eat per pound of weight.

Okay heres one of my secret, I am a huge jelly bean freak so guess who else is one. Its true I give Rosey a jelly bean when I eat them (just one though).
She loves hard boiled eggs (good for their coats) also carrots. I have not tried cheese yet though. She also likes honey but only gets that when her blood sugar is a little low. This isn't people food but as a treat I give Rosey a piece of Cowboy's food. He is a newfie so the food is really big. There is just something about it that she goes crazy for.

I do know that grapes, macadam ion nuts, raisins, and chocolate are the big no-no's.

Roy
your right if you give them people food your asking for trouble

reason is they dont want to go back to the tasteless dog food again. and you will be cooking for them
How would anyone like to eat say rice or macoroni and nothing else everyday , week after week, year after year?
you wouldnt
Nothing has ever made Lucy sick or Cookie, But she wont eat cottage cheese or cheese, peanut butter or yogurt. Vet said to give cottage cheese, so it is OK,if they will eat it.
But I dont give the no, no's and add onions to the no list.
favorite dish is spagettie with tomato meat sauce. next is plain spagettie with green bean, carrots and meat or chicken,tossed salad with a little cream dressing.
I try to get them to eat one meal of dry dog food a day,with chicken broth over it. and one meal people food
PS I know some have a sensitive stomach, but her or Cookie doesnt

I know that it's not a "food" but I wanted to let everyone know that sugarless gum is a bog no no. It can be extremely toxic for our furry friends. Pip has a bad habit of digging through my purse so I always take my gum out and place it out of his reach Laughing . As far as feeding them human food that's a personal choice. Some food is good for them, in moderation of course Wink Wink .

The feed people food and they wont want dog food is not a rumor. I cant convince my wife of that and now this gang just begs for anything but their dog food Confused They do eat the dog food but they wait till they know they aren't getting anything else.

Yep Chocolate, Grapes (which is a real problem around hear because they fall off the vines and the dogs love them, White concord, so far so good)
and rasins. Chocolate being the biggy. Hydrogen peroxide and water makes a good ipicac for dogs. (Been there Done that.)

Mine can hear a bag of Good & Plenty ratteling from a mile away Laughing

DANGEROUS PEOPLE FOOD

Do not feed your pets:
Some foods dogs should not eat and could be deadly.

Grapes & Raisins - Grapes and raisins can cause kidney failure in dogs. As little as a single serving of raising can kill a dog.

Onions - Onions can destroy red blood ceels and cause anemia.

Chocolate - Can cause seizures, coma, and death. Baker's chocolate is the most dangerous. A dog can consume milk chocolate and appear to be fine because it is not as concentrated, but it is still dangerous.

Coffee, Coffee grounds, Tea, & Tea Bags - Drinks/foods containing caffeine cause many of the same symptoms as chocolate causes.

Macadamia Nuts - Macadamia nuts can cause weakness, muscle tremors, and paralysis. Limit all other nuts as they are not good for dogs in general. Their high phosporous content is said to possibly lead to bladder stones. Exception to this rule is PEANUTS and PEANUT BUTTER. However, always use salt/sugar free peanut butter.

Peanut Butter - The sugar in peanut butter encourages cancer growth. Always use ORGANIC PEANUT BUTTER as regular peanut butter contains a lot of toxins.

Animal Fat & Fried Foods - Excessive fat can cause pancreatitis.

Bones - Bones can splinter and damage a dog's internal organs.

Tomatoes - Tomatoes can cause tremors and heart arythemias. Tomato plants are the most toxic, but tomatoes themselves are also unsafe.

Avacados - The fruit, pit, and plant are all toxic. They can cause difficulty breathing and fluid accumulation in the chest, abdomen and heart.

Nutmeg - Nutmeg can cause tremors, seizures and death.

Apples, Cherries, Peaches and similar fruit - The seeds of these fruit contain cyanide, which is poisonous to dogs as well as humans. Unlike humans, dogs do not know to stop eating at the core/pit and easily ingest them. It also becomes lodged in the intestines and kills the dog 24 hours with no warning.

Raw Eggs - Raw eggs can cause salmenolla poisoning in dogs. Dogs have a shorter digestive tract than humans and are not as likely to suffer from food poisoning, but it's still possible.

Salt - Excessive salt intake can cause kidney problems.


FOOD THAT DOGS CAN EAT


Some "human" foods are good for dogs. Most of these are healthier than the boxed treats you buy in the grocery store. This is just a small list of examples of foods dogs can eat, not a list of every food they should eat. Dogs won't necessarily get all the nutrients they need if they eat these foods exclusively, so check with your veterinarian if you are interested in feeding your dog a home cooked diet. Any food that causes stomach upsets or digestive problems in your dog should be avoided. Like people, some dogs cannot tolerate certain foods.

Meats - Meats should be boneless and it's best if the skin is removed. Raw meat is NOT a good idea because of the risk of food poisoning and parasites.

Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast

Boneless Skinless Turkey Breast

Fish - DO NOT FEED TUNA! It has a high mercury content. be careful of small bones. (This goes for cats as well)

Vegetables - Dogs have shorter digestive tracts than humans and cannot digest most vegetables whole or in large chunks. It's best to put them through a food processor before giving them to your dog. The best veggies for your dog are:

Carrots - For healthy dogs. Do not give carrots to dogs who have cancer because they do contain sugar.

Green Beans

Lettuce

Yams

Grains - Grains should not be given in large amounts or make up a large part of a dogs diet, but these foods are generally safe in small amounts, such as rice.

Dairy Products - Use caution with dairy products as they are high in fat and can cause pancreatitis, gas and diarrhea. Usually, nonfat, plain yogurt is safe in small amounts as is cottage cheese in small amounts.

WOW Thank you all so much for your comments, information and the link!

There's so much to learn Wink

When you say yoghurt is good, can they eat the Ski yoghurt (I'm not sure if you have this in America). I'm just meaning the yoghurt you buy in little tubs to put in lunchboxes type thing?

Again, your help has been wonderful!!!
I was having to google every food before I would feed Stewie.

Of a night we give him cooked human food and in the morning he gets dry kibbles.
