    The title of this thread sounds like one of those books 'Why dont penguins feet freeze?' etc...

    dh says it is not advisable as it is too rich for them, but they do like it as it is creamy.

    but if he is around there would never be any left for the doggie anyways

    Dogs are allowed it. They normally have it as one of their meals when they are puppies

    Since my two dogs once ate a box of three lightbulbs I think a bit of rice pudding would be fine

    I just read on that link that grapes / raisins are really dangerous to dogs, freaked me out a bit as Poppy will often drop a grape for Dex when she's having some..not any more she won't, they can cause kidney failure, even just after one portion!

    Yep, grapes and chocolate are the two little known dangerous foods.

    Rice pudding is fine as a treat but the richness can cause a bit of diarrhoea in some dogs.

    I hope she enjoyed it!!!

    My dogs eat our leftovers, so eat onions (in bolognese etc.) A LOT!

    So I'm a bit about that article!

    "Onions are another common food that can be highly toxic to pets. They can destroy an animal's red blood cells and lead to anemia, weakness and breathing difficulties. Their effects are also cumulative over time"

    Really, dogs shouldn't have any people food except meat but a few spoons as a treat is fine! My dog used to love tea and real ale (very watered down) as his monthly treats!

    I know! I was just completely stumped by the fact that between two of them they ate three I mean, which one of them thought "yum, that was nice, I'll have another"

    Crikey my dogs 6 years old and my last was 15 when he died and both of them eat anything and everything from left over roast dinner, puddings, chocolate that they steal whenever they can, rice pudding, lasagne, baked onions grapes, cuecumber just about anything and everything we've ever eaten, the dogs have finished up, with no dire effects whatsoever. I think it's a bit like, will it hurt your child if you let it eat a sweet inbetween meals really.

    I have never heard of onions being bad and have never come across raisin or grape poisoning but chocolate is definatly one to worry about, it contains theobromine which is closely related to caffeine and causes liver and kidney failure in dogs and cats. It all depends on the quality of the chocolate, the higher the cocoa solids then the wors eit is and dark choc is worse than milk. I think it's something like 500g of good quality dark chocolate could potentially kill a collie sized dog.

    I not only speak from professional experience but personal as well, my mum's yorkie raided the xmas presents under the tree once when we were out and ate quite a bit of good quality chocolate. She was rushed straight to the vets but didn't see new year, she had liver failure.

    Personally, I would feed a dog most things as a treat, now and again but not all the time.
