As the resident dog sitter for all my friends and family, I've come to appreciate each pup's unique personality. Recently, a dog who wishes to remain anonymous turned her nose up at a slice of high-quality cheese I offered her and this got me thinking — do dogs have different tastes in food, the way humans do?

I surveyed every dog owner I could get my paws on and here's what they had to say about the wild and wonderful human foods their dogs just can't get enough of.

"Ice. I discovered this when the ice machine spilled all over the floor, and my golden retriever went berserk. Now every time he hears the ice machine, he comes running."

"Our dog Mitzi has a thing for dried bananas. When we go camping, I put them in our trail mix and I have to buy a whole extra bag of dried bananas just for her; otherwise she will be trying to get into our trail mix the entire trip.

Oh, she also LOVES steamed broccoli. That's a weird one."

"My dog Minty (RIP) used to go crazy for carrots. Cheese? No thanks. Meat? Meh. Carrots? HECK YEAH!"

"When my Westie was a puppy, my mom would spoil her by putting bacon on top of her kibble. Fast-forward six years, and she will not TOUCH kibble without bacon on it. The weirdest part is we had to switch to turkey bacon for her health so yeah, my dog is now fancier than me!"

"Raw spinach. If anyone is eating it, she will put her head on their lap and just groan and groan until they cave."

"Our dog Larry loves lettuce, avocado (which I think is actually bad for them), cream cheese, and smoked salmon. All in all, she has very healthy tastes!"
