What's wrong with my Shih-tzu's?

Mrs. Z is in the kitchen brewing up some salsa, and they're out there begging for cherry tomatoes.

If someone from the AKC were to find out, they'd have their dog cards revoked.

Anyone else have pets that eat strange (but not hazardous) things?

My dog believes that any activity in the kitchen is worth his undivided attention. He also believes that any item is worth a quick bite, he'll spit it out if he decides it isn't food.

So no. Nothing wrong with the dogs.

I used to have a lab that would eat the weirdest things. He'd beg for veggies if I was cutting up some....he'd eat any I gave him.

Does their own feces count as strange food or is it more familiar?

USAZorro - C'mon, you can't say "Shih-Tzu" w/o a pic!!

Zebby will come running in from any room/floor in the house when he hears the cracking of a banana peel about to expose his favorite fruit. Only a tiny bit, though - lots of sugar. The other thing that gets his juices flowing is any activity on the cutting board - the flying bits that hit the floor are fair game. The only other way to get him into a room is to laugh hysterically, as if you're having a good time at a party w/o him. He'll appear in two seconds - he's the ultimate busybody.



Incidentally, if your fantasy is hoards of pretty young girls running towards you, exclaiming: "You're sooo cute", get one of these, esp. in puppy form. A more potent attractant than a Lamborghini.

As cute as they are in real life, getting still pictures that capture them the way they appear in life is quite difficult.

True enough. In fact, in the four years we've had him, there is exactly one pic I like of him in motion. Chasing and being chased - w/ his Shih-Tzu pals at the monthly meetup.

^^ You let your dog play with skunks????? EWWWWW

My dog licks the dishes in the dishwasher if I leave the door open...

He eats whatever you put in front of him, generally.. after all.. he's a dog, and that's what dogs do.

My late Zuhon, Fluffy, had a penchant for popcorn. So much so that if she saw a bag of unpopped corn she would start begging.

The problem is that they are Shih Tzus... and I feel your pain.

And joy.

Dumb as she is, I love this little ball of fluff that lives at my feet.

then your vines are most likely not muscadine grapes. Muscadines have a very thick skin and make crappy wine. People do make wine with them, and some even drink it, but its awful stuff. Muscadines are vitis rotundifolia. Wine grapes are usually vitis vinifera or a hybrid variety.

Hmmmm? they do have thick skin, and the skin seems to have most if not all of the sweetness, the "meat" itself seems to have little to no sweetness to it!
