Which "real foods" are OK?

We have for the most part only given Nico dog food (and egg yolk). He's had the very occasional piece of cheese and he's had a tiny piece of chicken and meatloaf once each. Then last night he gobbled up a piece of apple my daughter dropped on the floor and it got me wondering which "real" foods are OK (or even good) for a dog to eat. Or maybe if that list is too long, what foods are bad for a dog to eat. What are your dog's favorite foods (other than dog food)

Hi there!

As far as foods that are not ok for dogs, I have read that chocolate, anything with caffeine, grapes/raisins, cherries, and a large number of plants can potentially have toxic effects. I have bookmarked two websites that have lists of "do-not-eat" items for dogs, I am not sure as to how accurate they are but I have perused them before:

http://www.dr-dan.com/newpage16.htm

and

http://www.petalia.com.au/templates/...ry_no=257#ct-4

Also, the ASPCA has a list of no-no foods and plants on their website. I had to call them once when Lito snagged a leaf off our jade plant and threw up. 50$ later, they told me jade leaves weren't toxic but that they would make a dog throw up, which had already happened anyway

And regarding what Lito loves to eat, besides his Fromms and egg yolk, he is all about cheddar cheese, chicken Breathies, peanut butter Buddies, sausage/hotdog bites (he gets those very infrequently), and his new love, Peppridge farm goldfish.

Oh and apparently he developed a love for all things Italian, since my inlaws sneak him soppresata, prosciutto, asiago cheese and hot cappicola when they are babysitting! Hehehehehe oh well at least he's happy.

Bugsy will pretty much gobble up anything that's human food. He love chicken, beef, lamb, any and all fish, cheese, white and sweet potatoes, apples (peeled), carrots, bananas and a few more that I am not thinking of at the moment.

Casper got really sick from a McDonald's burger. We were on a trip and I gave him a plain burger no bun. I will never do that again.

But for table food, he loves salmon I thing it is good for him.

and he likes beef, chicken, hold the pork ( not so good ).

I heard pork was bad. Anything fatty is bad for them.

Mine Love steak, and cheese and anything we have Stogie wants. Goldie is a tad more picky.

Speaking as a Mom with a human toddler, Sam has tried almost everything that Anthony has dropped on the floor. Nothing has made him sick yet. Getting it out of his coat is another story.

I do give Sam pieces of what ever meat (usually fish or chicken) we have for supper mixed in with his kibble. His favorite is baked Salmon.

Real food

Mine get eggs (usually scrambled but the love hard boiled also) they eat apples, blueberries, spinach, carrots, squash their absolute hands down favorite is raqw sliced sweet potatoes.
They also eat watermelon and brocolli.
Too much egg will cause loose poop. Work up to one a day. Other than that they get chicken and brown rice or hamburger and brown rice mixed with their kibble and whatever veggies and fruit we are eating on a particular day.
They also love waffles and pancakes and POPCORN.
Nothing seems to bother them other than too much food or too much eggs.
