Dogs and Cats

One of the many differences between our domesticated "brethren", is that dogs are significantly more omnivorous than cats. If any proof were needed, one need look no further than this morning's experiment in culinary delights by Polly and Sprocket, the dogs about the house.

Last night, a few marshmallows were consumed by the human inhabitants of the house. But the packet was left with perhaps a dozen or so soft, sweet morsels, uneaten but wrapped carefully in the original packet, on the coffee table. This morning, while I was busy elsewhere, the terrible burden of unwanted marshmallows was lifted from the house by our friendly canine helpers. Hyperactive dogs are a funny sight, and thankfully a long walk to the local park, with much running and ball-throwing managed to return their digestion to a natural equilibrium.

Dogs actually have a sweet tooth, something cats lack. Of course, Sprocket also has a ham tooth, bacon tooth, boutique Belgian beer tooth, and egg carton tooth. He'd make a great food taster, if that profession were still in vogue.
