I have it on good authority that a certain local dog owner takes his fuzzy friend to The Buttery and feeds it a warm croissant every week.
My eyewitness saw the whole thing.
“He leaned over and gave the dog half,” she said. “It seemed like it went down in one bite.”
This doesn’t sound like a good idea. Wouldn’t a dog react to a rich puff pastry in disgusting ways? The people over at Answers.com addressed the issue in a recent posting. Their verdict is this: “Yes dogs can eat croissants, but i wouldn’t recommend feeding them croissants regularly, on occasions as a treat would be fine but dog food or treats are better.” Wow. That is one of the most horribly written sentences I’ve read in a long while!
Anyhow, you’ll never guess the breed of dog.
