Dog Owners Reveal Which Weird Human Food Is Their Dog's Favorite

What's on the menu?

Dogs are walking, barking, farting, lovable trash receptacles. Most pooches, no matter how well trained, will gobble just about anything. They won't indulge in an once of remorse either. They'll eat everything you have with pride and gusto! Now some dogs are well trained and they may take their time sniffing around but, just like a human falling victim to the destruction of their New Year's diet resolution.... they'll breakdown and pig out eventually, it's the natural order. It's shocking to witness what a dog will devour.

Redditor u/shriveledpotatoe wanted to hear some menu cravings form pooch owners out there by asking... Dog owners of reddit, what is a weird human food that is your dog's absolute favorite?


Use every bit....

Giphy

The crunchy part of lettuce. The hard stuff right at the base. He loves that crap. tootsietat

It's so convenient when they develop a taste for the bits you don't use. ArchetypicalDegen

Making Lemonade....

My dog once adopted a lemon. It was her baby. She took it everywhere she went. She was so gentle and nurturing to this old lemon. She would bundle a blanket to make a "bed" before she would lay it down.

It eventually started to rot, and we had to throw it away. She was devastated. We got her a new lemon, but she didn't want it. BitbyDeadBear

Chilled... not crushed! 

Mine loves ice more than any other food. insertclevername18

I had a lab growing up that LOVED ice, so when I got my dog as an adult (pit/lab mix) I gave her a piece of ice too. I smiled and was super excited to see her rush of joy from getting an ice treat. But she just stared at me like "What are you doing?" She's the most human dog I've ever had the joy of being around. magicalmoodygirl

She's not picky....

My dog has a strong preference for anything. SenoritaGatita

I too have a dog with a mouth. NearbyFuture

My dog taught other dogs to eat garbage - a friend dog sat for us once and they just used a paper grocery bag as a garbage can. They couldn't do that after my dog stayed there because he showed their dog what amazing treats existed in the garbage. Titus_Favonius

Garfield in Disguise?

Lasagna or tuna. The-Talis

Is your dog Garfield? ionised

JON I REQUIRE LASAGNE. FrostyChocMilkshake

Silly Molly K....

Orange soda. If you had a cup, you were not safe. She would take it away from you. Also, lollipops. She would roll it to the other side of her mouth if you tried to take it away. Her name was Molly Kate; a black Labrador retriever with white feet and a white star on her chest. She also would not let you put a leash on her. She held the handle and you had to hold the clip. She walked you. KallellyB

Good for the eyes...

My mom's pit bull loved carrots. If anyone was eating mini carrots she'd put her head in their lap and groan like a dying wookiee until she got some carrots. BrightestHeart

Yes! My friends mutt was staring me down while i was eating carrots, i kept laughing at him saying he wouldn't like them, but when i told my friend about it, she said he actually loves carrots and i felt like a idiot for not sharing. yairina

You eat it, you rebuild it! 

Does dry wall count? cause my lovable idiot ate drywall. Wolffang27

Who doesn't? it's the best part of a house. rugbylova

My lab ate my bathroom floor. I don't know how she didn't get sick. Ate 3 layers of tile and linoleum. Axeldanzer_two

This is why I can't grow nice things! 

My dog eats pea pods, straight off the vine when I pick them. I noticed him sniffing at my vines today lol He also likes strawberries. I grow little Alpine variety and I loosen one so he can pick his own berry. peace_dabs

My dogs are why I can't grow strawberries. They don't even wait for them to be ripe before they steal them. Moonshine_Hillbilly

In Blackberry season it takes ages to walk the dogs as they are all picking their own blackberries. iwantmorewhippets

Paging Kraft services....

Giphy

Kraft singles, mofo can hear them open a mile away. tristtan13

I used to work for a family whose dog was epileptic, and the only way he'd take his pills was if they were wrapped in a strip of kraft slices. It had to be Kraft, too, if they used an off brand he wouldn't take it. It used to be listed as "dog cheese" on their grocery list. chanaleh

You need a meeting girl! 

Beer. When my husband first got our chocolate lab, he lived a few blocks from the university in our town. Nearly all of the homes in that area are rented to students. When out walking with the dog, there would often be beer cans and bottles around. So he started bringing a small garbage bag with him on walks to collect the cans and bottles to later recycle. Eventually she started sniffing out and collecting the cans on her own, and he would reward her with a treat. The real prize though, and what he failed to realize at the time, was the dog was actually developing her palate for the taste of beer.

That was 7 years ago. Fast forward to the present and I swear to you this dog will nonchalantly move around a campfire, secretly scoping out anyone who leaves a beer unguarded. Once she has identified her target, she will continue to casually nose her way around like the innocent, tail-wagging good girl that she is, only to then stealth-mode creep over and knock the unguarded beer over. She then proceeds to lap up the liquid as fast as she possibly can before she is noticed. We try to warn our friends at social gatherings, but without fail she almost always scores at least one beer per event. theonebakesale

Veggies first! 

Giphy

Those freeze dried green beans. I dunno, my dog goes bonkers for them. Also, brussels sprouts. I think maybe he just likes farting. embroidert

Extra Butter?

Popcorn! It's gotten to the point where my pug can even recognize the spelling of the word popcorn. I swear she purposefully tries to trip me whenever I'm carrying a bowl of it. Cad01b

Magic Beans...

My dog will eat almost anything, but he loves jelly beans (specifically jelly belly). He will chew each individual bean for almost a minute, it's really funny watching a hundred pound Shepard mix savor a tiny jelly bean. bigbruce85

The Citrus State.... 

My Huskey LOVES citrus. Before I have a clementine peeled, she is already hoping to get an extra slice since I have clearly been teasing her with the smell of the peel. She is a goober. hunnythebadger

My great dane is an orange addict. It's one of the only 'human' foods he gets, and as soon as he smells it he puts his head on my lap and whines. I can't even wear citrus-y perfumes without him getting all worked up. niccig

In a Daiquiri! 

Strawberries, Young Thai Coconuts & Pancakes. If I don't share either of those with her, she'll put her head in the crack of a wall. viviann2

Mine loves strawberries too. He'll eat anything, but he gets 2 strawberries every day after our walk, and he goes absolutely nuts for em. notTomHanx

Granny Smith?

My old dog had a thing for apples. Couldn't say the word without her going nuts, forget eating an apple. I started buying extra so I could actually eat a whole one. Sometimes I'd just eat apples out of the house so I wouldn't have to share.

Current dog would wrestle in mud her own mother for cantaloupe. chanaleh

Who DOESN'T have a bread dance?

Giphy

My dog used to love bread. He did a little happy dance every time we go the breadbasket out. Vets said it was because of his meds but still.. (He had Addison disease and had to get extra salt in his food as well as other meds) I do miss that crazy little dance. ZaMiLoD

Not in a Martini?

We adopted a dog when I was about 3/4 years old, who lived until 2 years ago. He had a really weak stomach so he generally only ate dry dog food, but for some reason he was obsessed with olive pips! We lived in Greece at the time and had an olive grove, so there was no shortage of olives for him, but he refused to eat the olive itself - someone else had to eat it and then give him the pip to crunch 😂 SofiaReze

So light delicious! 

Reddi whip. My wife likes it on her morning coffee drinks and squirted some in his mouth once because it was hilarious. Now this Boy can tell the sound of removing the reddi whip cap from the other end of the house! nurse4now

Relationships are hard. Finances are hard. Making things work with someone from a completely different lifestyle than your own is hard. Being in a relationship with someone who has a lot more money than you can be like a perfect storm of "oh no." When that perfect storm slams into the fragile isles of masculinity and societial expectations ... well ...

Famous and highly regarded people have delivered famous last words on their deathbeds for ages, and we can only hope to be as eloquent as them when our time arrives. I like to think I'll be too busy concentrating on my laborious breaths to focus on whether I'm being eloquent or prophetic, but you never know.

These people have certainly made their marks on the history books.

Ignorance really is biased.

We always think we know what is right and what is wrong, what's the truth and what's a lie. The reality is that most of what we know is just an opinion or a partial truth that we've filled in with our own rational (or irrational) explanation. These opinions that we pass off as 'facts' are far from it and it takes a lot of courage to look at yourself and admit you were wrong or misinformed about something. Everyone likes to pretend they're on a different level, but the truth is you're not so different from the people you disagree with. Meditate on that.

Here are a some people admitting strong opinions they no longer have, and what it took to change those views. Redditor u/segafarm asks:

What is the strongest opinion you once held but no longer hold, and what make you change your mind?

Jade-Colored Glasses

I used to think that being cynical/negative was realistic and somehow smarter than being positive. I've since realized that a "be prepared for the worst but expect the best" is far better. We can't control the outcome of anything in life. Being negative makes you miserable rather than protected from bad things happening.

Cant' Have A Conversation With A Parrot

I used to be a conspiracy theorist. Believed that 9/11 was committed by the US government and that we never landed on the moon.

Once I started looking outside of the echo chamber I was in and started looking at alternate explanations, theories and listening to different viewpoints I soon realized how ridiculous those notions were.

A Big, Mysterious Universe

I used to be a strict, hardline atheist. I was the kind of bastard that would bring the subject up for no reason, just to argue. I don't know what the hell my problem was. Now I feel like, the universe is big, I don't know what all might be out there, I don't really care. I live as if there is no afterlife, because that makes sense to me. But if you don't, and you believe in one, that's perfectly fine, and maybe you're right. Who knows?

Portrait Of An Artist As A Young Man

I used to believe anyone can be a successful artist if they just put the time and effort into it. There is no such thing as talent, only hard work.

What changed my mind: Art school. There were quite a few people that tried hard, but just weren't able to achieve professional level art.

You're Not Your Emotions

For the longest time, I thought my emotions were in a sense the most "real" part of me. I was always a very emotional person and I didn't make a real effort to control it as I thought it was a good thing, that I was just being honest with myself. Over time though, I started to become very depressed and the negative emotions just keep adding on and on. I thought "this is just how I am I guess". Unfortunately it started hurting other relationships I had, and everything changed when my girlfriend broke up with me. After a lot of reading I found that emotions are not who we are at all. They're just reactions and there's nothing that requires us to act on them or feed them. I'm learning to let it go through me instead of hanging on like I used to.

Don't Forget Big Willie Style

I used to think that hip hop was bland, repetitive, and all about clubbing and sh*t. Then one of my friends pointed me towards people like Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Nas and Run The Jewels, who all have great songs and clever lyrics, and I realized that Hip Hop is pretty great.

The A**holes Will Always Find A Way

I used to think that the catholic church was responsible for all of the hateful people in it. I gave people the chance to challenge my opinion and someone explained it very nicely to me. Basically, the hateful people use the church as an excuse, if you remove the church they will gladly find another excuse.

I used to tell myself that I would never stop smoking weed, and that I'd be happy if my kids grew up to be pot smokers... Now I have a kid, don't smoke, and realize what an idiot I was when all I did was smoke all day. I could probably be in a much better position if I hadn't smoked all through college.

But I mean, I still think pot's okay... Just in moderation.

The Road Less Traveled

"All taxation is theft, man! I made my money without any help from public institutions or the infrastructure they support, I should be able to keep every last dime of it!"

Naturally that was when I was 18, living at home rent free, and working at Pizza Hut as a delivery driver who relied upon public roads for pretty much every cent I made.

All Those PSA's Didn't Do Much

The whole D.A.R.E anti-drugs. Yes crack and heroin is bad, but they over dramatized what happens when you do smaller drugs. Weed isn't even a gateway drug, alcohol is more of a gateway drug. When I saw weed for the first time I thought it was tobacco (This was after all the D.A.R.E training too). Letting the government teach you your morales and philosophy is a thing that sheep do. Don't be a sheep.

Where Would We Be Without The Kindness Of Strangers

I used to think people on welfare and state assistance just weren't trying hard enough. I grew up spoiled and entitled and it seemed like any kind of charity was a stigma.

Then, my husband became chronically ill, and the economy took a shit. My family has been close to homelessness more than once, and have relied on state insurance and assistance off and on throughout the past few years. There are definitely people out there who abuse the system, but some just get stuck in a horrible cycle of poverty.

I also work in a school that has a high number low income and refugee families. It has really opened my eyes to the struggles that some people face.

He's Still There For You, The Best He Can Be

I could go through life and could seek meaningful advice from my Dad who has always been there for me.

Now he has been reduced to a feeble condition, I am starting to understand I'm out there on my own, and even what he's sure of is suspect given his mental and physical facilities have been rapidly deteriorating in his late seventies. I feel horrible that I have noticed this long before he did - or at least admitted as much.

Clear Your Mind

This was before I received an ADHD diagnosis. When my doctor referred me to an ADHD specialist, first of all I refused to believe him and was kind of slighted that he even suggested that I could possibly have ADHD.

I had a very strong opinion that if I get a diagnosis that I would refuse to take prescribed amphetamines because they are "bad" and "addictive" and that they would ruin my life.

Then I actually tried the prescription and it was like magic.

Going Through The Whole Spectrum

Used to be fairly open with my views on immigration policy. Then I worked for a while down near Corpus Christie doing immigration work. I'd say one out if every hundred people that came through our office was going to somebody who actually wanted to work and try to make a living here. So many people simply wanted to exist enough to get welfare. Many were young men who we would later defend against exportation as a result of their criminal activity. I began to despise the work of defending these men and wished they would be deported.

Now, I'm dating a foreign girl and we are in the legal immigration process. She has advanced degrees and skills, so that makes things a little easier. But it does make me resent people who just bypass the system. We can't bypass the system because I imagine my participation in immigration fraud could get me disbarred.

The system we have in the US for paying our restaurant staff is...well, broken. Wait staff's income is largely dependent on what they make in tips, so if it's a slow week they may find themselves quite short on funds.

We thought it was such a good idea at the time, and now all we wish is that we had our money--and our time--back.

But we bought it, and now here we are, living with the pitfalls of capitalism.
