What to say to someone who feeds your puppy a Greggs' sausage roll?

He was off lead and a workman just gave him half of his sausage roll. I was too far away to object while he was doing it, and didn't approach him after as I thought i might just get abuse. Pup is only 12 weeks and was sick later that day. He also went round town thinking that everyone with a Greggs' bag was going to feed him...

I suppose it wouldn't have happened if he'd been on lead, but he needs to have some freedom.

What would you have done? Or am I being too precious?

Well if he was off his lead and you were too far away to say anything I think its just tough luck to be honest. A sausage roll isnt going to kill him is it?

I doubt the sausage roll made him sick, my dogs have eaten all sorts on walks, including bits of dead crabs and mummified looking rabbit legs etc and not been sick.

In future, recall him from people before he can approach them, that way they won't get the opportunity to feed him.

What a waste of a Greggs sausage roll

Yes, I was distracted by another dog owner so was not quick enough. His recall is improving every day.

I would ask the workman for my bit of sausage roll - to show I am a true mnetter

Sorry, is it just me who giggled at seeing this thread title? How about if it was an organic, free range sausage roll made with wholemeal pastry? grin

I'm only stirring, really. If it had been an organic liver treat and he'd made him sit first I'd have been over the moongrin
