Dogs aren't omnivores -- they're carnivores. Like I said, you don't see wild dogs, wolves, etc. cooking up some broccoli or pulling carrots to eat. In fact, if most dogs eat grass or other leafy veggies, they vomit. Most here have probably had to deal with this from time to time.

Exactly -- because eating grass or other veggies isn't natural.

Well, they tried two separate tests...I think one was really junky, and the other made it seem like it was contagious...but it just wasn't a certainty.

And BTW...Kari Byron is in this month's Stuff Magazine wearing lingerie with a lab coat...what a dream. :L :-] :-]
