But dogs do need carbs and veggies and fruit. Ask Blade who eats all the fruit that falls on the ground from our fruit trees. He also picks the ripe tomatoes off the vines.

I've got a friend whose dog bites into every pear on her trees within reach and only finishes off the ripe ones, leaving bite marks in all the unripe ones. He won't eat them off the ground.

I hate to see the insanity propagated into animal food.

Blade says he sure won't go without his
fruit and tomatoes from the trees and vines.

Blade did that with the peaches. All my pear trees are on the other side of the fence. But I do slice them and feed them to him. He loves them. And comes standing around as though I am offering him doggie candy.
The tomatoes really get me. Of course these are cherry tomatoes. Not huge tomatoes.

Winston loves tomatoes from the vine. He goes out on the deck and checks each plant in the morning. When he finds a ripe one, he stares, wagging his butt, alternating looking at me. When I give him the 'okay', he very carefully plucks it and gobbles it down. One of the plants is a new {for me, anyway} variety of cherry that's supposed to be pinkish green when ripe. I'll know they're ready when Winston begins to ask for them.

This is very timely - my mother just sent me 5 very nice fruit trees, not realizing that in order to get them in the ground I had to clear a bunch of land, including some nasty vines, and cut paths through another bunch of vines back to the creek so I can pump water from there rather than hauling buckets down from the house. I finally got done clearing it yesterday and I'm just about done getting the trees in, so in a couple of years I'll people to complain about my dogs taking test bites out of my peaches, too.

Thats a naughty, naughty dog.

And I will still be jealous of your peaches. Even with dog bites in em.

I bet you sibes could learn to CLIMB TREES with their athletic prowess. You may get no peaches at all.

Whoever said that dogs can't plan hasn't met my evil, scheming huskies. They'd plot among themselves to build a Sibe pyramid so that Image could scramble to the top and pick the fruit for the rest of them. Image was always a very, very good dog (she occasionally reminded me a little of the Reese Witherspoon character in "Election," actually), but now that she's got her rowdy younger sister egging her on her inner child has broken free and is spreading styrofoam peanuts all over the kitchen. At least they clean up easily.

The apples have been falling off the trees for a while. All of them have doggie teeth marks then they eat the best ones. Cypher collected all the pears last year and kept piling them up and guarding them. He would spend hours eating on one pear, just like he was savoring it. I wish that I had taken pictures; guess Ill put it on the to-do list for this year. He would hold them in his front paws and spin it around and around as he ate.
