Do You Allow Your Inside Dog to Eat Off Your Dishes?

If you have food on a plate that you aren't going to finish and want to give to the dog, do you just set the plate down for the dog or do you transfer the food to the dog's dish?

My dh does that with the dog. I think it's gross! I don't mind giving her leftovers but she is a dog and doesn't need a PLATE.

Yea. I'm going to wash it anyway if it is a glass plate. I usually eat off of paper plates anyway because I don't want to wash dishes so I usually just put it down and let him eat off it then throw the plate out.

No! I hate it when dogs beg and their mouths are so nasty.

People food generally isn't healthy for dogs so I would not do it. Plus it screws with their digestion by adding different things into their diet regularly.

The only people food I give my dog is peas and the occasional piece of steak or chicken, and the food is put in his bowl.

I have read many times that a dog's mouth is substantially cleaner than a humans. Don't really buy it though!...LOL

I used to when we had dogs. It is being washed anyway. One of my pooches was nicknamed prewash.

Exactly.

Eggs are one thing.  Pizza crusts are another. 

Noxious fumes coming from the dog are a telltale sign that someone's been sneaking him food.

Sometimes when I'm alone, I like to Google myself.

Nope. That's a myth! I mean how could it be? I know dogs who eat there poop and lick their asses/genitals all day. There is no way their mouth is cleaner than mine.
