Got Milk?

Every morning for breakfast until I graduated from high school, my father made my breakfast. Whatever he served up was accompanied by a glass of milk. Sometimes white. Sometimes chocolate. I've found that in the world there are two types of people - those who love milk and those who don't. I'm one of those people who like milk and so is Kev, so we keep it in the house at all times.
Guess who else likes milk - a lot. Greyhounds. Well, at least my greyhounds do. We cannot open the container of milk without the girls going bananas begging for a taste. I'm not sure if milk is good for them or not. It doesn't bother their tummies. It doesn't cause the big D. It doesn't cause gas - well, no worse than what they normally have. So, when we have a glass of milk, we save a bit at the bottom for them to have and they love it. 

Greyhounds get milk mustaches too. Well, Roxy gets milk mustaches.

On a side note, I've started a blog dedicated to my running exploits. I thought about combining the two, but I didn't think that readers who want to read about cute greyhound stuff would also want to hear about my morning run. When Roxy starts heading out with me, the two blogs will cross paths, but for now, I think keeping them separate is best. If you are curious, here's my running blog - Run One Run All.

I'm not a big fan of milk, but I will drink it on occasion, and of course keep it on hand for cereal and cooking/braking.

My understanding is that some dogs can be lactose intolerant. Your guys don't display any of the GI symptoms, though, so I guess you're in the clear!

I enjoy milk, although I usually stick to water. The beverage around here right now is pink lemonade. Bunny can NOT keep her nose out of it!

Will have to see if my kids like milk. I chug chocolate milk after my runs. I just keep a little ticker of my running miles at the bottom of my blog, since I don't do interesting races like you do.

I love milk! One of the biggest bummers for me is that with age, I've become LI. And FODMAP intollerant. It stinks! Literally, really. But I compromise. I steal a glass at night--let the covers cover all secrets.

Strangely, I do not react when I have the milk my friend collects from her cow. Unpasturised, unhomoginised, full-cream milk does me no harm.

Omo is a beast for pears, a fruit I have had to give up because of fructose malabsorption.

Milk fanatics in our house. Human and hounds.
