Labs that will eat anything

If you’re a dog owner, you’ve likely wondered if there’s anything they won’t eat. You might have even tested this theory once or twice, staring in amazement at the enormous quantities of week-old, straight from the refrigerator, leftovers your pooch is willing to ingest, still showing no signs of stopping. In fact, a study conducted in the UK showed that about half of the country’s dogs were at the time overweight.
