The baking is never-ending. The party prep is always going on. Food is a big part of this time of year. Your Fido or Snoopy is constantly around your feet waiting for scraps to fall. Don't do it. Don't share your people food with your pooch. Especially these SEVEN HOLIDAY FOODS, according to pet food company tails.com.

MINCE PIES

I couldn't have told you what a 'mince' pie' was until researching this story. Apparently, these are filled with dried fruits, which are not good for your dog.

OLD LEFTOVERS

ONIONS AND GARLIC

These are not good for your dog. Good Grief! Considering your dog's breath, why would you possibly feed her garlic or onions?

CHRISTMAS PUDDING

This usually has dried fruit, or even alcohol. Both are no-no's for your pet.

NUTS

Not really hazardous to your dog, but dogs could choke on them. And they are higher in fat than is ideal for your dog's diet.

SKIN & BONES

We used to feed our dogs some skin from turkey or chicken. But this is too fatty for a regular diet for them. (And for us people too.) Bones can be a choking hazard or cause internal damage.
