They're "kitty roca" in our house.

Kizzy loves that and potato chips. He's SUCH a gourmet.

Apparently, grapefruit oil is distasteful to some dogs...it's an active ingredient in some of the bitter sprays you can purchase to dissuade problem/dangerous chewing.

What won't a labrador eat?! My male lab has swallowed a padlock......long story. Most recently for him was chomping a Christmas bauble. As far as other things, they love chunks of dirt, grass, any food.

LOL... I used to have a Black Lab, so I know what you mean! He was absolutely horrid as a puppy, and once chewed up a book, wallet (including money & credit cards), and ONE of my expensive hiking boots, all in the same afternoon. Thankfully he grew out of the destructive phase, but he'd still eat anything offered - that's actually how he got his name, Mikey, after the old "Mikey likes it!" commercials.

I am SO glad Rudy has no interest in eating cat poop, since I have 3 cats and nowhere "dog safe" to put their pan (it's a smallish apartment)... he does like to bury it for them, but never tries to eat it! My old Lab did like the cat poop, though, and would often greet me at the door with a nose full of litter. Niiiiiice.

I went on a trip down south and bought a box of Paula Dean's cheddar cheesy biscuit mix. When I opened the box, the instructions fell onto the floor and Shermyn promptly swallowed the whole piece of paper. I had to call the company and ask then to e-mail me new instructions (the woman was cracking up at me).

He also once ate the electric/gas bill. I called them, and the wait for a customer service person was going to be 5-10 minutes, and they make you pay a fee to pay online, so I just waited tilll the next month and paid late.

One Christmas eve, when my beagle was about a year old, I made the mistake of leaving the room for just a minute and when I came back, she had devoured an entire box of cherry and brandy-filled dark chocolates. That necessitated a call to my vet and instructions on how to induce vomiting. It was scary.

Wow - I would have been having fits too! Its amazing how much trouble a dog can get into in a very short period of time! Glad your fur-baby was ok!

I just remembered my post from last year when Shermyn ate coffee grounds. I posted in the Education section because I solved the problem with basic math skills.

Example of why learning basic math is a GOOD thing
