Look Dad, There’s A Banana!

Look dad, there’s a banana on the coffee table! Does no-one want it? I could eat it…

Oh ****, he wants it. I know, I’ll do my best ‘begging sit’…

Yeah! Got some! It never fails…

    Chrissie. I hate to say this but is becoming apparent that you are not getting out of the house enough………………..


  2. I know, I know, I’m slowly going crazy……

    Much as that is a very funny scene, you need to know this……..


    Wrong shape, wrong colour, wrong smell, wrong taste…

    Just WRONG!

    Oh, my Wyatt Earp just *loves* bananas. It’s a great source of potassium too for him. I’m going to have to post a photo of Wyatt the Boxer soon. This post really bought a great big smile today, thank you!


  6. Our Border Collie ‘Mist’ is another banana fan -she will also go for melon but won’t touch strawberries or kiwi fruit.

    ‘Meg’, the collie we had before her, would eat just about anything – I once left a cauliflower on the table after shopping and five minutes later came back to find just the leaves from the base and a very guilty looking dog ๐Ÿ˜€ I expected some kind of gastric explosion the next time she did a ‘toilet’ but all was quite normal ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Haven’t tried Tilly with kiwi fruit yet, but I’ve no reason to suppose she wouldn’t eat it! Dixie doesn’t ‘do’ fruit at all…
      Our Border Collie was very fussy – she wouldn’t eat any human food. Had to be proper dog food for her.

    Never ceases to amaze me what dogs will eat. Andy’s dog Harry used to eat just about anything as I recall – wooden spoons I think, certainly a whole packet of pan scourers on one occasion. But not bananas.


  8. Some dogs just don’t distinguish between edilble and non-edible do they? Don’t know what ‘brand’ Harry was, but we have heard that dog food manufacturers never use Labradors in their taste tests. Wonder why not…


  9. Where the Fatdog Walks says:

    Not even The Fatdog will eat banana!


    • Even I can only eat them when they’re slightly green. As soon as they turn even the tiniest bit brown, the taste changes completely and I don’t want anything to do with them ๐Ÿ™‚
