      Mushed up banana – maybe mixed with a little peanut butter – stuffed inside one of those rubber kong toys and frozen is a great way to help keep your mutt cool on a hot summer’s day…..

      Like humans, dogs need a little roughage and other nutrients in their diet not found in meat – nowhere near as much as we do of course, but they do need it….

    Why would you be feeding any fruit to a dog? I’ve never known a dog who’d want to eat it!

      My dogs love fruit, glad to have this handy guide as my dogs love to eat the rind off watermelon, so i will have to cut that out of their diet now.

        well you live and learn! Both of our dogs would have given you that withering look we all know so well if you’d offered them any fruit at all!

    I had a great dog when I was a kid. Loved grapes, so I used to feed them to her with gusto. Ultimately died of kidney failure. A little unsettled now to learn that I killed her.

      Ha, I used to try to feed our dog grapes. She wouldn’t eat them. Dog also died of kidney failure. Perhaps dogs kidney’s are doomed to fail. The creature would go batshit for carrots.

    Yeah, my dog LOVES grapes. She goes mad if you’re eating any around her but, obviously, isn’t allowed to have them anymore.

      You’d be as well cutting them out yourself, too, Janet – fierce high fat content in avocados, and they’re doing you no favours.

        avocados are perfectly fine, in fact they are super and do have fat – but it is mono unsaturated (good) fat.

    “…unless a large amount of seeds are digested.”
    *Number* of seeds.
    ‘Number’ and ‘amount’ are not interchangeable. If you can count it, use ‘number’. If it is only counted in terms of a unit of measurement, use ‘amount’.
    You can never have an amount of people, or an amount of shoes or an amount of hippos because there is no unit of measurement for any of these.
    You could have an amount of milk because we measure it in litres or pints or fluid ounces. You can have an amount of soil because we measure it by weight or volume, or an amount of time because we measure it in hours and minutes.
    It’s not rocket science, it’s easy to get right and you look stupid when you get it wrong.
    Now, could somebody explain very clearly to me when I should use ‘whom’? I hate not knowing.

      Me: “Can I have a 30,000 sunflower seeds?”
      Vendor: “Eh, sunflower seeds come in a 50g bag or a 300g bag”.

      1. Always Wright

        You’re looking for a number of seeds, you learn that sunflower seeds are sold by weight. Your grammar is correct, even if your common sense is a little off.
        Now you can buy any number of bags you’d like.

      I believe it should be used when ‘who’ is the object of the sentence: i.e. “to whom it may concern”, “for whom the bell tolls”, but I’m not entirely certain.

      Don’t bother, people who insist on using it are just trying to sound smarter than they are.

      When the answer will be ‘him’, ‘her’, ‘them’, etc, use whom. When the answer will take the form ‘he’, she’, or ‘they’, etc, use who.

      Whom cares? I don’t really know.

    Dogs (and foxes) will also eat blackberries straight off the plant. They can easily tell which are ripe, of course.
