Confession time: occasionally, we let Lucy lick the dinner plates clean. I’m pausing for judgement…you done? Need more time? I’ll wait.
I know that feeding from the table is bad, but what about AFTER dinner is all done, you’ve cleared the dishes and you just set them all on the floor for a sweet faced little dog to lick them clean? Is that just as bad? I’m sure it was totally acceptable to feed the animals kitchen scraps prior to dog food–probably not on the dinner plates, but still, I’m justifying here. Lucy the Puggle Dog has ALL of us wrapped around her paw, what can I say?
Do any of you “spoil” your dogs by letting them lick the plate? Or does the sheer thought send you into dry heaves?
