Toronto's vegan dog owners feeding pets veggies, too

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toront...an-owners.html
I'd be VERY curious what the RAW feeders on our forum have to say about this.

Humans are omnivores - but i have heard that dogs are carnivores AND some sources say omnivores.

I've been a vegetarian for 15+ years with no ill effects....but dogs?...something instinctual (because I haven't done 'real' research) or my little voice, suggests to me that this is just flat out silly - that dogs are meant to eat meat.

Yes, we can force them to be vegan or vegetarian and they won't die...but this seems to get my spidey senses tingling. It doesn't feel right to me.

Am I off-base? Opinions?
