My GSP loves carrots. My kids do give her other people food too, even though I encourage them not too. I know it's probably not all good for her but we try to limit it. If it is junk food in my house, my kids are not going to give it up to the dog. We rarely have a lot of junk here so they mostly feed her carrots. The OREOs are so rare they are never going to give them up to the dog. I LOVE my dog so very much so I really want to make her happy. I figure she has such a limited time here with us in the big scheme of things so I am okay with making her day by feeding her some meat or scraps every once in awhile. She doesn't have allergies or digestive problems.

Most chronic illness is due to inflammation and that is caused by the diets too many of us eat many people could stop taking drugs for illness if they would just eat the right foods.
Most dog food is garbage too. I hunt a lot, so I save venison scraps, hearts, duck meat and gizzards- it get's boiled and sliced for the dogs. Then I save the broth and use that liven up their kibble. I've been doing that for 20+ years and all my hunting large dogs have lived to be healthy old dogs with no discernible problems.

Heck my old Bluetick coonhound would find whatever dead animal in the woods and consume that. I swear she was 1/2 vulture

Some ppl food is bad for your dog just like some 'dog' foods are bad for your dog. don't use such a broad brush when painting a picture....I feed a partially raw diet and my dogs thrive on it.
