Most humans need help with self control when food is around. But man s best friend has it even harder. Dogs can be trained to do almost anything -- sit, shake and even rollover--but discipline when food is around is another issue.
'Food on my dog' gives new meaning to dog food
For Tiger, a 6-year-old Staffordshire terrier and American bulldog mix, it s her strength.
You see, it started out with balancing dog biscuts on her head.
My dad at a very young age would balance snacks or biscuts on [Tiger s] head, said Andrew Small of Crystal River, Fla.
Then one day, Small decided to put a piece of ham on Tiger s head. His friends thought it was funny, so he tried other food. Tiger can balance a piece of pizza, a can of soup and even a bottle of maple syrup
That evolved into a blog called Food on My Dog. Small updates the website every day with a new food for Tiger to balance on her head and even takes requests. The blog started in late December and since then thousands of people from all over the world have clicked to see what new food she can put on her head.
Tiger, a rescue dog, doesn t complain about her special skill.
She likes it because she knows she is getting a reward...I wouldn t do it without giving her a reward, said Small.
And Tiger doesn t eat everything that she can balance.
Tiger gets to eat most of the food. What she doesn t eat, I eat. No food goes to waste. She doesn t get to eat food that s not good for dogs either, said Small.
Her favorite food? Kraft singles.
