Many of you know that we were puppy raisers for Southeast Guide Dogs of Palmetto, Fla. Our dog, Mack, went to Puppy University on May 24th for about 1 year of training. He breezed through the first 2 stages -- we get regular reports. However, they took him to the local mall to walk around people and just get him used to a different situation. He did great until they walked through the Food Court. When the trainer wasn't looking he just reached up with his mouth and took a piece of pizza off someone's plate. Gobbled it down before they could react. Needless to say, he's in the "dog house" now!!!

Maybe they should have fed him before they went.

That's the thing...they probably did. This dog has an insatiable appetite...we had to keep him on a strict diet as far as dog food went, supplemented by raw green beans, carrots, and peanut butter. His "appetite barometer" that's supposed to tell him he is full is obviously not working.
I think that is true with many dogs, which is why you don't leave a bowl full of dog food available to them all day long.

It's strange, though. One son just leaves a bowl of dry food out for his 11 year old lab...she eats when they eat...but otherwise when she's hungry. If we had done that with any of ours, they would have been continually draining the bowl!!
