    Wierd things your dog eats?

    Right, I know Staffords are pretty greedy, but my two seem to eat the oddest stuff:

    Satsumas, apples, grapes and they go mad for carrots!

    I wouldnt mind, but they keep going off their 'proper' dog food...they lull me into a false sense of security if I buy a small bag of something for them to try and they wolf it down like they havent been fed for days, so off I trundle to buy a whopping great sack of the stuff, and they turn their noses up at it!

    Anybody else have any problems?

    Oh, and the latest trick is that they have sussed out how to open my tumble dryer, so I keep finding clothes in their beds with slobber and bite marks all over them....I guess thats better than their old trick of jumping up at my cooker and turning the gas on


    Solved that one by having to take all my knobs off lol

    these must be common to the breed

    my 20 month old staffie likes to eat a variety of things:

    socks (especially if pulled out of the clean washing pile and/or the tumble dryer - he's learned how to open that too! )

    trainers (but only old ones I give him surprisingly - he grabs the laces and spins round like a hammer thrower )

    wood (any wood. from tree trunks to bits of stick for the fire. he's even had a cricekt bat before!)

    flys/moths/insects/spiders anything that crawls/flys and catches his eye. He's even had bees before, now that was interesting to see if we could fish it out before he got stung in the mouth/throat

    these are just a few things, tbh he will eat anything. we have to have hooks on all our cupboards, turn the gas off at the mains for the cooker, and keep everything off any surface that is lower than about 5 foot.

    gotta love him though!
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.

    my dog likes nothing more than eating the crotch out of my 2 year old knickers and pyjamas
    The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    I knew about rasins but not grapes.

    Mine eats anything, loves apples, slippers, anything he can get out the bin or washing basket. Will lick out any packets or tins of food that he can grab.
    But most of all he goes crazy for cheese, chedder, red Leicester, baby-bel, macaroni cheese etc
