my mother in law is that type that will continuously treat our puppy without attempting to get so much as a sit... NILIF does not register with her. or animal training in general.

so last night after dinner (of which i worked on keeping him in a down and not table surfing) i gave him a bully stick. he was fine with it once he realized no one esle was eating. but i guess she thought he should have a carot. not a baby carrot. half a full carrot stick. so he finally gets through that and goes back to the bully stick. adn she gives him another half. ***? had we known this was going on we would have stopped it.
i can't even eat a full carrot stick without painting the bathroom orange...

well anyways, last night he was sleeping under our coffee table and farting a terrible awful cloud of vile-ness (think Walter The Farting Dog), and this AM as he was running back in the house for breakfast he stopped short, ran back to his spot and dropped a big pile of normal dookie. then 15 mintues later on his walk he had a massive runny bought of orange pudding.

gave him a rice cake as soon as we got home and wifey got on the horn with her mom and told her to get to our house at 10am in addition to her lunch break to make sure he doesn't have to go again.

so annoyed. *** pleasure to peopel take out of constantly trying to stuff food in your dogs mouth???

and carrots? she ws going "well that carrot sure kept him busy" um the bully stick was doing fine without future stomach issues.

I do not understand why people feel a need to keep feeding dogs. Especially if it is not their dog. Parents...they are the worse! They always know better!

Sorry to hear about the wicked gas and orange poo! I would hate to be cleaning that up immediately!

my wife was with him on the walk, she comes running into the house,
"you have to drive me down the street. you said he went earlier and so i didn't have a bag!!!"
so here we are two ninjas at 6am driving down the street to scrape a 15 foot trail of yuck off the sidewalk.

Ok, I know I shouldn't, but I really have to laugh at the mental image!

Sorry about the carrot pooh. At least MIL likes your dog!

oi dear, poor pup :)

technically, there's nothing wrong with giving him a bit of carrot; but I guess that was too much at once :D

My dog likes raw carrots. One time my son came in & says. "Mom, there is something wrong with Kadence, she has orange stuff in her poop." LOL It was undigested carrot pieces. Looked like a chopped up orange crayon. Didn't seem to bother her otherwise.

Yeah, dogs generally do not digest carrots unless they are shredded fine. Fortunately carrots are one of the healthiest veggies for dogs (even in extreme).

To the originator of this thread, I'd say to simply talk to the MIL and explain that dogs digestive systems do not work quite the same as ours and the best thing she can do to share her affection for the dog (and respect for you) is by not indulging in such feeding. And/or how bout giving her/having her make some acceptable treats she can give (in moderation) as an acceptable alternative?
