View Full Version : Crazy vegan dog

Okay, this is too weird, just thought I'd share about my crazy vegan dog Draggon doggin. Not to be confused with my crazy hubby Dragggon.
Well, I was eating a cantaloupe the other day, and enjoying it and he kept wanting a bite, so I gave him one, knowing he wouldnt' like it, he ate it and wanted more, so I gave him a few more bites, he loved it, so when I was done, I put the rind on the floor, and he licked it clean, then a few minutes later, I noticed the rind was gone, he had eaten the rind.
Now when I eat cantaloupe the rind goes to him and he eats the whole thing.
So tonight I am eating pineapple, he's eating it too, and he stole some onion off my hubby's plate, and basil leaves out of our garden, and is eating them.
He also eats tomatoes and blackberries right off the vine.
We can't keep him away from almond pulp or almond milk, and he eats our grapes off our arbor.

That's too funny!! But you have to admit, that is one smart dog to love all those foods so much! You may have to make up a little doggie garden just for him. Train him to pull the weeds. :cool:
How did you get him to like fruits initially, anyway?
My dog loves fruit too. She's not vegan or raw, but she loves grapes and apples and if there's left over fruit smoothies at the end of the day, she gets a little bed-time treat.
I've been giving her less and less dog food and more and more raw food. The breeder I had bought her from said her mom tried giving her dog a vegan diet and the dog got really sick. So far Pascha's coat is still shiney and she's got enough energy to pull my son around the neighborhood on his skate board. (She's a black lab who was a Husky in a past life ;) )

Our chihuahua, Nina La Pinta - Y La Santa Maria, (yes, that's her full name. lol ).... went through withdrawls when we quit feeding her off of our SAD plates.
She's now getting accostomed to more vegetables, fruits - and dried things.
Ya know, if you ever make a mistake in the dehydrator.. ..do like RP.. .make 'em doggie biscuits

Well, we are lucky, our Draggon Doggin just loves to try everything and anything on our plates, so we didn't have to train him at all, we just give him a bite of everything, and he just used to drop it on the floor, now he eats it.
As far as the doggie garden, that's a cute idea, we are lucky as his back yard, only has herbs and raspberries growing in it and some hazelnut trees and one apple tree, all the other gardens are on the lake side of the house, and he is behind a fence, so he only gets to steal the veggies, when I'm out on the deck or he's out helping "dad" in the gardens, he is so cute.
This big huge black dog, picking up tomatoes with his teeth. He kind of curls his lips back, then chomp, chomp, chomps them, he only chews fruits and veggies, meat or dog food he simply inhales.
But weeding is something I think we'll have to show him, he knows how to dig really well, now if we can get him to dig in the right places.
Because, you know the weeding never stops.LOL

I loved it this summer, my Bernese(Pacina) dug up where I was planning on planting flowers so..... I didn't have to weed that area or do much to prep the ground :p she did it for me.
If I drop fruit or veggies on the floor my little guy(Baby) will pick it up, run to the living room and put it on the carpet, but he won't eat it, I don't know why he always picks the stuff up. Baby used to eat cherry tomatoes, but he's left them alone this year.
