Years ago I would have said "gross", but now that I have Caesar I do sometimes feed him from my plate or bowl, even let him drink a little soda or milk from my glass or cup.

Not intentionally. But I have always said that a little dirt/germs keep your immune system on its toes.

Not worried about the health issues so much as I let him lick my face and the like but he doesn't eat people food for the most part. He's got allergies and I really don't like him begging or having to worry about leaving food out so he knows not to go near human food.

Raw veggies or the occasional piece of meat or cheese is the exception and of course ice cubes but that is when I'm preparing the food so he doesn't get that same association.

Boy does he like carrots though. I snap one in half and give him the big end and he gnaws on that thing like it was rawhide. While he is working on it there are bits of carrot all over but once he finishes off the main piece he sniffs out all the stragglers and licks them up too, lol.

Never. The only people food Macie gets (leftover grilled salmon or veggies, MAYBE the occasional egg) is put in her dish...I have zero tolerance for dogs that beg at the table (or anywhere frankly)....I don't even like here near the table when we eat. That's just me though.

Yes, since Simon has been diagnosed with lymphoma. The doc says he can eat anything that he wants, but often he has no appetite--even with the meds. If he sees the spoon (and it is after we are finished eating and the spoon goes into the dishwasher), then he thinks he is getting a special treat and will eat. That's good enough for me.
