PostSubject: Whole grain bread?   Wed Apr 04, 2018 2:48 pm

Hello all! Quick question-have any of your dogs eaten while grain breads and have had a poor reaction? Our pups are kept on a grain free diet as much as possible, but about 10 minutes ago Mia stole my pb&j sandwich I was about to eat for lunch. Had it on the table and turned my back just long enough to put a binki in my little’s mouth and THERE GOES MOMMYS LUNCH.


She’s never done it before and she’s already gotten her daily ration of peanut butter (a leftover coping mechanism from when I basically lived on it during my stint with gestational diabetes-protein and “no carbs”). Hoping she doesn’t have a bad reaction....

I have to comment - with my crew (who aren't on grain free diet) if they get a bit extra of the bread all I end up with are some rather (mal)odorous results.

Unless your dog has a grain allergy you probably won't see an issue with one sandwich. Aside from just the usual not used to having all that stuff running through her system. For most dogs grains cause problems over time resulting in over production of yeast leading to itchy skin and infections, or upset stomach. Many northern breeds just don't process it properly. Might see a little upset stomach or poop issues but should resolve itself with time if you see anything at all.

I'd be more worried about the jelly - not grape, I hope?

So far so good. Not grape jelly- strawberry. We tend to keep raisins and grapes out of the house if we can bc Luka went through the vacuuming the floor phase as a pup! She wasn’t as hungry for dinner as usual but maaan was she satisfied all afternoon long. She thinks it was worth it. The husband thought it was hilarious. I keep waiting for the death farts though-she used to get them in grain free food but so far we’ve been spared.

I LOL'd too, sorry! It brought back memories though, I had a malamute that was the slickest of thieves, lol, to the point it had me doubting myself as to if the food was even there in the first place! Like going out to start the bbq, and having a whole steak missing off the counter...one of my favorites though was when my little sister, she was probly only 4, was at the table eating a cookie, she turns to talk to my mom, my malamute takes the cookie out of her hand without her even noticing! My sister turns back to take another bite and her hand is empty, hahaha, I saw the whole thing go down and laughed so hard my stomach hurt.

Anyways, I'm glad she's ok and although this was the first time, now she has the experience so it may not be the last time. It sure wasn't for my Malamute Wink

Jimmy, your stories reminds me of archer a few months ago. I was at the table just about to finish my breakfast. One perfectly cooked piece of bacon left. Josh dropped by with Archer who climbed into my lap all lovey dovey. Nah...turned his head too my plate, snarfs my last piece of bacon, runs of and swallows the bacon before I can even holler. Slick as a whistle.

Brat dog.

LOL this is why we got huskies right?

The only other time (that we know of?) that Mia ever tried to steal food was when Luka was a few months old. We defrost our meat on the counter every so often (I know it’s bad practice for food poisoning but it happens). We were defrosting some chicken one day, and we bought the pre-cut chicken breasts that are individually packaged. Hubs and I were upstairs and suddenly noticed that the dogs were gone and it was quiet... So we run downstairs and see baby Luka happily licking the plastic wrapped chicken in the living room, with Mia “oblivious” and in the office.

Luka couldn’t jump up to the couch at the time, let alone reach the counter.

Mia had decided SHE wanted chicken, grabbed a pack off the counter, realized she couldn’t eat the plastic, and let Luka have it because clearly she’s an angel who ~would never steal chicken~.

The sandwich incident was funny though. I was just left hungry and worried because, well, that’s what I do. She knows I’m not /really/ mad at her, beyond the “we don’t do that you know better” issue. We’ll see what happens when I make a sandwich tomorrow. I can see Luka now “But mama it’s MY turn for my own sandwich!”

Rumo has had bites of bread with peanut butter on them, and it seemed to go down OK (although he was never lucky enough to get a whole sandwich :-)

I read somewhere the dogs are different from wolves...they've been living with people for so long, that they have evolved to be able to digest carbohydrates.

Mama I’m so good look at how cute I am with the baby!


She’ll never notice me inching closer and closer.



Betrayal. The sandwich is gone. Hope is lost.


Sorry. Had to share!

So funny! Very Happy
Now she's discovered the taste!
