Dogs love food. They don’t discriminate very often when it comes to the type of food. Dog food, cat food, probably ferret food, but dogs seem to love human food the most. No matter what it is you are eating, if you have something in your hand or on your plate, it is your dog’s mission to intercept that piece of food before it hits your mouth (heck, they’d probably still take it after its been in your mouth too).
