  • Throw no, I don't think they ever threw it. But my parents dogs and my inlaws dogs always stayed close by my kids when they were toddlers, especaily when they were eating lol

  • We don't have dogs, and they still do it! lol. "Why are you throwing food in the floor, Madison?" ........"It's for the dogs." or "I'm feeding the ducks." lol

  • Yes. And the dog waits for it. And then I have to clean her (the dog) face and head because she's covered in cheeseburger pie.

  • yes and hands it to them, and leaves it on the floor knowing they will come later... its a pain at grammies, I have to keep telling them they dont have a dog for a vaccum

  • My in-laws' dog camps out underneath my son's chair when he's eating because she knows it's the best place to get food :) He loves to feed her - he thinks it's hilarious when she takes food from his hand. My in-laws don't mind either because if my son happens to drop food on the floor, they don't have to clean it up! The dog does it for them! LOL

  • He has, or she's jumped up trying to get it from him. Both are reasons we keep her crated when he eats.

  • I really spent a lot of time informing our kids that table food for the dog wasn't good for her. I told them that it was their job to help me make sure she didn't get ANY table food. They took the responsibility very seriously - so much so that when my father gave our dog a "little treat" of some sliced ham, my younger son was very upset. It's funnier because my dad is a vet - and it was he who taught me not to give pets table scraps!
