So, I have a golden retriever that is about a year and a half years old and lately I've been feeling really guilty about not giving her any of my food. I mean, she's only had hot food ONCE in her entire life and that was when she stole it when she was a few months old (McDonalds Filet-o-fish).
That's pretty shitty. And I'm pretty certain her dog food tastes like sand (although I haven't tasted it... yet). She's a well behaved dog and she doesn't have much else in her life to look forward to so I feel guilty when I just got my hands on the most delicious thing she could ever dream of eating and she sniffs the air longingly while I feast. I feel like I'm holding out on her.
On the flip side, I hate dogs that beg, and she doesn't really beg because I've never fed her from the table/people food. Always her normal food or dog treats/peanut butter/bones. So, I've been thinking of maybe just leaving food around on the floor randomly or something. That way she doesn't bug me/other people when I'm eating, but maybe she gets to not eat sand every once in awhile. Obviously, I wouldn't be feeding her terrible things like chocolate unless I get bored of her, then tough luck bitch, you had a good run.
What's your policy?
