It's carrotlicous!


I love fresh, crunchy carrots! Fresh, raw fruit and vegetables are great for humans and hounds alike. They taste delicious and make you feel fantastic. If you're feeling low or lethargic, get some fruit and veggies into you. You'll be feeling on top of the world in no time. I love apples! Tim and Mandy share their apples with me, biting off bits for me and giving me the core. When I'm out and about I sometimes find a partially eaten apple. I also love pears, avocadoes and bananas. 

Life is great with fresh, raw fruit and veggies.

Fruits and veggies rock. I eat everything, blueberries are my favorites!

Tell mom and dad to be careful with the apple seeds, they can have arsenic in them. Not good.

I don't know if I've ever had a carrot...may have to try one this weekend!

I've been working on getting a lot more fresh fruits & veggies into my diet...which is easy in the summer time with so many delicious berries, peaches, etc. to choose from...

Yummers! I like carrots and apples too. I am not such a fan of blueberries and banannas, but my little Pee-Wee brother just loves those.

Oh yes, I have also heard that the apple seeds/pips can be dangerous for us doggies - so be careful when you eat the apple cores, Ruby! My humans used to give me apple cores too but they stopped after reading about that. Also, grapes are poisonous for us doggies!

I get veggies and fruits as part of my raw diet about 3 times a week...I think my favourite is the leftover peas, though!! :-)

Lilly loves apple, bananna always gets spat out though. I must see if she likes raw carrot, Lilly gets a big bowl of cooked vegies with dinner.

I also bite off little bits of apple for Black Jack (but not the core). She loves that. Carrots are also a hit. I guess you and she have similar tastes:)

It's great to know that everyone eats lots of fruit and veggies. I have been doing research on the net about apple seeds. There is contradictory advice. Most say don't eat them. Apple seeds have a small amount of arsenic which can be dangerous in large quantities. Exactly how small and how large, nobody says. Some say that the seeds aren't digested and just pass straight through so they aren't dangerous. Just to be on the safe side I'll decline the core and ask for more of the rest of the apple.
