Bad Bad Mom!

I left Zoey at 5mo old for 5 hours! I am so bad and on top of that I was so hungry when I got home I defrosted spaghetti sauce made noodles and gave Zoey spaghetti noodles . It reminded me of lady and the tramp she loved the people food but I feel bad. because she got away with bagging Now I have a spoiled brat I an sitting here eating my dinner and she is asking for more please forgive me for I have let in to the please mom.
Does anyone else give in ? PS Maddie is at our new home with HD

Pepper is too little for me to give in yet, but I give in to the adult dogs plenty of times, lol. I know table scraps are considered super evil to some people, but since I don't really give my dogs other "treats" aside from bones, I occasionally will give them some people food. It never gives them trouble, since it's just in small quantities.

The begging can be very annoying to deal with though. I often keep making a begging dog go away, and will only ever "share" if they aren't being obnoxious. I know it's all about them trying to control us!

I have no problem with "people food" in moderation... it often makes great training treats. I don't EVER give in to begging at the table, though. (or while we're having dessert in front of the TV for that matter) Like kids, do something once, and it's hard to say "no" the second time. Do something twice and it's a habit.

Leaving a 5 month old puppy for 5 hours? I wouldn't do it every day, but I don't think it's unreasonable from time to time, as long as she has water and a place to potty.

My troops often get table scraps. With 4 of them, it's never more than a couple of bites each. They look forward to it. They wait to be offered and they know when it's over, it's over. As for leaving her for 5 hours, I'm with Karen. As long as they're safe and have everything they need, no real issue here.

Ok. I will admit I give my guys a piece of my dinner when I cook. I have to stop giving them people food. My guys have gotten cookies, crackers, chicken, salmon, steak, noodles, brocolli, asparagus.......and an almond! I had no idea it was poisonous to dogs. That's why I need to stop or check the poison food list before giving them a human treat!

We try to only give Abby the low-cal people food when we give it. As I mentioned in another thread she is gaining weight so now she's on a no people-food diet! She's taking it fairly well but stuck up her nose at dog food for a couple of day! My DH is doing well - didn't think he would since he is the main reason she has gained weight! BTW, she used to love raw carrots but now prefers them cooked - spoiled girl!

I cant blame anyone but myself for the 30lbs in two years! Poor Katie although cooked carrots are good do they turn her white fur orange?

We just give her a small bite at a time. Just carrots that we've cooked with our meal.

Cute visual, Suzi, of your girls trying to climb in the drawer! Also, I just saw the clip with spaghetti from Lady and the Tramp on some TV segment about the best kisses from movies. Soooo cute!

Augie goes nutzo over the rotisserie chicken we bring home from the deli. He hops around the kitchen like he is on a pogo stick while I cut it up and put some on a plate for him. He does have to sit and wait nicely before I give it to him. Also, shredded cheese, is a HUGE favorite. He hears the package come out of the fridge and he is there immediately! We never feed him when we are at the table, however, and he gets no bites if we are eating anything on the couch.
