    My dogs aren't a very good judge of what's edible; they're easily influenced by advertizing, if I look like I'm enjoying eating something they will give it a try. I think they would at least try a Mc D french fry or a twinkie, but probably not a skittle.

    just like humans, dogs like sweets. i bet they'd eat some skittles.

    have also known dogs to eat shoes, money, rocks, pantyhose, soap and cat poop. so mebbe not the litmus paper for deciding if something is edible.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    Hey Forager!

    I have said roughly the same thing to my kids as a rule of thumb for years, just kinda in reverse: bugs and mold go for real food the fastest.

    Now watch someone say that ants will carry off a bitten-off jellybean just as quickly as they would a bit of meat...

    Yup. My friend does rescue Shepherds, and hers have been in surgery for pantyhose. She also had to take extraordinary measures to protect the daily mail at one point. And my BIL's huskies have eaten and subsequently pooped loose Christmas tree tinsel - makes the piles all sparkly... very pretty lawn deco around the holidays!

    I get your point, but I think it can be (and has been) simplified to say eat real healthy food, not fake processed products that are designed to replicate or replace food. Most people who read this site already do this, or at least attempt to.

    Actually is was more tongue in cheek but with some truth. I've noticed some comments about eating fast food and candy and it just got me thinking.......... really what does it take to figure out what to eat. Just eat real food, I've said enough.

    Just read that Twinkies (the new ones) have a shelf life of 45 days. WTF!

    I would like to add that I have never eaten a Twinkie, even in my SAD days:-)

    I had a twinkie once. It was pretty awful.
