My old dog loved to eat apples--we'd save a little before the core and hold it while he chomped away. We did the same with watermelon rinds. Didn't hurt him in any way, and the apples actually helped keep his teeth clean lol

Dogs can eat SOME kinds of fruits and vegetables. They can eat stuff like apples or carrots, but nor oranges (toxic for them).
If someone is interested, I'll write what they can eat and what they should not.

Well onions can't make their breath any worse even if they could eat them.

Well I have seen plenty of dog foods that have vegetables mixed in, some even marketed as "light" dog foods, for today's weight-conscious canines :facepalm: But lets not forget that they are primarily carnivores whose teeth and digestive systems are designed for meat consumption, and so just because lots of fruits and vegetables are healthy for us - doesn't necessarily mean the same for them. Sure give them the safe ones every now and then, but I wouldn't force a 50/50 diet of meat and plant-matter on them :hmm:

They can (my dog likes carrot) and I believe apples are okay.

Whatever you do do not feed your dog onions, raisns or grapes as they are toxic to dogs.

True.
(Although saying that I knew a dog that ate a 16pack of kitkats and wasn't any worse for wear, but it was a spaniel and they are kind of canine garbage disposals XD)
