what is it about dogs—well our dogs anyway— and bananas? you just have to start peeling a banana and the dogs come running. they don't even have to see you. they could be fast asleep, snoring peacefully in another room, and yet the second you snap back the top of the banana and tug down the peel they are up on their four—make that eight—legs scampering across the floor to see who can get their piece of banana first. they absolutely LOVE bananas. what is it about bananas?
