Do You Feed Your Dog People Food?

I have the most adorable little cocker spaniel, and even though I love her very much, I will not feed her people food - not even when Lacey rests her little face on my lap during dinner in an attempt to cute me into it. I just don't believe in giving dogs people food in any way shape or form. Be it scraps, leftovers, or old bones, I just don't do it. The first dog I ever loved, Adam, died when I was eight years old due to complications related to the digestion of people food. His stomach could not handle it and we had to put him to sleep. Everyone has a personal opinion on what their dog can and cannot digest correctly.

I know a girl who gives her dog, Darko, a doggie biscuit covered in whipped cream as a daily treat. Rachael Ray, a known dog lover, features a canine/people friendly meal each month in her magazine, Everyday With Rachael Ray. My aunt gives her dog, Mocha, tiny pieces of leftover meat about once a week for an extra source of protein. A friend's boyfriend liberally feeds his dog, Simba, people food but regularly brushes Simba's teeth. What about you reader? Do you share human food with man's best friend?
