    What’s the weirdest food your Sheltie was willing to try? Mindy sampled cucumber yesterday. She gave it a mixed review:)

    Kip loves cucumbers!! I use them as a low calorie treat. He also likes zucchini and papaya.

    My dogs will pretty much eat any fruit or veggie. Brooke LOVED lettuce for instance. I also use veggie pieces for treats like Elei to keep the calories down and they love them. Red or yellow bell pepper pieces are favorites here!

    Della loves cucumber - she gets cucumber and carrot for lunch every day. Actually she'll eat anything that resembles food (see my poop thread!)

    Little food obsessed puppy likes raw pumpkin, pumpkin seeds and even eats pumpkin skin (got to stop my support worker giving her the skin, can't be fun to poop back out)

    Tully hates all fruit and veg and will only eat veg if it's cooked beyond recognition. Although she thinks broccoli is for bunnies only, cooked or not!

    Kooper runs and hides like he has secret treasure if you give him a lettuce leaf - he is sheltie related... not sure Brodie has been exposed to anything odd yet.

    Oberon loves blackberries, peppers, tomatoes, celery, other berries, and any other food he can get his jaws on. He also has been known to eat pinecones and tree bark.

    Why is it when I read this question I had the little voice of Spitfire in my head saying 'veggies are for wusses' and giving me that look! :):p

    I have been on this forum for too long!!!

    Zulu love veggies, but he will not touch celery. Everything else at least gets the taste test.

    My dogs are less picky than me:lol:, there's more veggies that they'll eat than I will. And really, they've eaten poo so that pretty much says it all lol
