Default Do You Let Your Dog Clean the Dishes?

We always have, not something I even thought about before...there's always a dog or cats underfoot very happy to eat any leftovers.

Depends on what I've eaten, but generally yes. I don't make a point of intentionally giving the dishes to them to clean, but if I am done eating and they are giving me sad eyes over an empty plate, I may succumb.

I don't generally. I don't like the dogs in the kitchen. I have occassionally let them lick something clean, but it is very rare.

I let mine lick the fork/spoon after I'm done getting their raw together- does that count? lol.

They've never licked the dishes clean, though.

Yes--saves me from having to run the dishwasher on the high setting! I'm conserving energy!

My husband doesn't like it though. Ooops.

I don't let the dogs lick the dishes, but if I'm having something that comes in a single serving (like a yogurt cup) I'll let them have whatever I can't get.

NO. I've seen what he does to people who feed him their food (dad), not something I want. He stares, cries, even yips, tries to crawl on them while they eat. He leaves me alone or watches from a distance, and I'd like to keep it that way.

Thank you ~Dixie's Mom~ for my awesome siggy!

Once in a while but not often. Maybe once every three or four months. I'm pretty picky about what yoshi gets and a lot ofmy food has stuff I don't let her eat, like onions.
Thank you Vivien and Angel Chicken for the siggy! Also I have been frosted!!! And as of 9/13/07 I know the secret handshake!

No. I prefer not having my dogs get pushy or beg for food. My mom does it (or gives them food from her plate anyway) when I'm not around. She says she doesn't, but their behavior when she's eating (and only when SHE has food) says otherwise.

I do once in a while, as long as they aren't being annoying or pushy beforehand (which they normally don't do anything besides sit and watch from some place; Megie prefers the couch as a viewing point, haha).
