    I already give Brutus frozen green beans and the occasional carrot pieces but I have not tried watermelon. So I could just give him a few pieces without tummy issues? I think he would like it. We give our koi fish watermelon so I am already buying it. So far I have not found anything he does not like.

    I have given as much as 10 large cut pieces (he loves watermelon) with no tummy issues.

    Nothing wrong with having our priorities in check.

    When you say 2-3 pieces, you're talking just the pink watermelon? I think my Bailey would eat green rind and all if given the chance.

    This coconut oil, is it a replacement for salmon oil? I give Bailey and soon Zoey a couple squirts of salmon oil on her evening feeding and I don't think she really likes it. She eats everything but wipes her face off in the grass when I take her out after her evening meal.

    Yes dogs love the taste of Coconut oil here is a great post on the benefits and amount to feed http://dogingtonpost.com/benefits-of.../#.UgpZZha9rJw

    An interesting quote from the above link.

    Coconut oil may provide an effective defense against many troublesome parasites including giardia. Like bacteria and fungi, giardia can’t stand up against MCFA found in coconut oil.
    Research has confirmed the effectiveness of MCFA in destroying giardia and possibly other protozoa.5,6,7 By using coconut oil and other coconut products every day, you may be able to destroy giardia before it can establish a toehold.

    And I think it is ok to do both Salmon oil and Coconut oil just not at the same time that would probably taste yucky Just cut down a bit on the salmon oil or just give them one or the other.
