Apparently the dog doesn't like them - will carry them as much as a yard from her bowl before spitting them on the floor!


Suggestions?

Maybe quit feeding her oyster mushrooms, and try some kibble.

And then she gets serious!

You do know that onions are toxic to dogs don't you? Grapes as well.

It maybe true. Obviously, she doesn't get ahold of many but, she's capable of finding one by accident. Never seen her have any adverse reactions to them either.

If you want a pet that has entertaining dietary habits, I can recommend the donkey. To quote M. Twain from Roughing It, where he’s going on about the characteristics of sage-brush:

“Nothing can abide the taste of it [sage-brush] but the jackass and his illegitimate child the mule. But their testimony to its nutritiousness is worth noting, for they will eat pine knots, or anthracite coal, or brass filings, or lead pipe, or old bottles, or anything that comes handy, and then go off looking as grateful as if they had had oysters for dinner”.

Oysters?

One might think Mr Twain exaggerates a bit, but I have observed my own two burros’ remarkable diet over the past three years that I have had them, and Mr T. isn’t stretching it that much. I started keeping a keep a list of things that I see them eat. It’s almost embarrassing. I've seen them eat mushrooms on the ground and no doubt had these oysters been lower they would have been sampled.

I took the lower part of that bunch, made a couple meals and dried the rest.

There was a big flush further up the tree but I didn't get to them.

Training the cat to go up after them.
