Our son is fascinated with our dog’s food. Every time we feed the dog or he helps feed the dog, the food ends up all over the carpet and tile. It’s as though the dog food is a toy to him. He even puts the food in little bowls and pots for the little play kitchen set.
I wonder if his fascination with the dog food is partly due to his love for our dog. He loves playing with her. I have heard of children eating the dog’s food, but not playing with it repeatedly. I have told him many times that the dog’s food is not a toy, but he continues to be fascinated with it.
