He’s my one year old miniature long haired Dachshund. He enjoys chasing his tail, dry humping his favorite pillow, sleeping, licking your face, and peeing on you if he’s excited. In short, he’s the best dog ever.
We’ve all the heard the rumor, dogs will eat anything … but is it true? Why don’t you help me find out. I love science, it’s so straightforward and like any experiment we have to lay down some guidelines to preserve the integrity of our work.
1. Nothing that will harm Dexter, he is my best non-human friend. That and my soon to be wife would destroy me if anything happened to him. This includes anything that will make him puke, act funny, or have bad gas.
2. It has to be food. I don’t want my dog pooping balloons or robo-tripping.
3. No meat. He’s a dog, of course he’ll eat meat.
4. There is a 30 second time limit. I mean hell, after 2 seconds if he hasn’t ate it, he won’t.
5. No hiding the item in cheese or anything else that we know he’ll eat. I could get him to eat his own poop … well he already does that.
6. Any irregularities with his bowel movements will be documented.
With that decided, leeeeeeet’s begin.
Week One: ALTOIDS
Note: Dogs cannot eat sugar free Altoids, the sugar substitute is poisonous and could make them very sick.
I know some people who won’t eat Altoids. To be more specific, the classic red can Peppermint Altoids. Me? I love them, pop them like candy. But what about a dog?
Let’s ask Dexter:
YES!!!!!! Dexter likes altoids, apparently a lot. He didn’t just eat it, he destroyed it and then tried to get the can.
No dogs were injured in the making of this blog, and his breath still smells
