Most dogs adore people food and will go to great lengths to access it. I truly believe that my own dog has pleasant dreams of raiding the trash can. We've had a few close calls but have been lucky thus far. As a dog lover, it is important to become educated about these hazardous foods. The next time your companion gives you the puppy-dog eyes while you are enjoying that onion-laden dinner, remember that he cannot have the leftovers. Try giving him a carrot instead.
