That's funny that she washed the carrots, smart pup. Not a fan of Radishes either. That one I understand a little.
Q: I have heard that chocolate is toxic for dogs, but my dog has gotten into chocolate before and has not had any problems. So I am curious to know if chocolate is actually harmful or not?
A: The simple answer to your question is yes, chocolate is toxic; however, it is the ingredient theobromine that is contained in chocolate that is toxic to dogs. The toxicity is based on the amount of theobromine that the animal ingests when compared to the animal’s weight. It also matters what type of chocolate is ingested because the amount of theobromine in chocolate varies.

One of our Jack Russel Terriers has an intense disdain for peas. We whack mixed veg into their food, and he'll chow everything EXCEPT the peas. I've even on occasion tested the theory by hiding a single pea in his food, and he'll go and polish the bowl, licking out every drop of gravy and other veggies, and leaving the polished pea dead-center of the bowl. strangest thing i've ever seen
His brother, though, will eat pretty much anything, if given time to make up his mind about it... He'll look at his food, then up at you, then sniff his food, walk away, come back a few seconds later, prowling like a shark around prey, sniff again, and then take a small bite as if checking the quality.... and if it's to his royal highness' liking, then he'll tuck in...
He even does this with table scraps - he'll beg noisily at the table, and when you offer him a little tidbit (even something like steak or what-not), he'll sniff it up and down, and move to another person at the table to check if the food there could be better...
