Chow for chowhounders' hounds

I have three Aussies and a little dachshund. I feed them dry dog food, Beneful, supposed to be healthy, mixed with a little wet dogfood. They'll eat the dry, but they like the wet better of course. What they really want is my food! Of course they do! My food is better tasting than theirs. I feel bad for them! Sometimes I'll boil a chicken for them, rip it into lovely juicy pieces and serve it for dinner. The dogs are in heaven! Once, I made slow cooked scrambled eggs for them. Beautiful, creamy eggs. The dogs watched me like I was a cooking show, frantic for the eggs. They loved them! I will give them little pieces of raw beef when I'm chopping it for stew or stir fry. I know they cannot have certain foods, like onion, grapes, chocolate..... they like cheese, they love milk (not supposed to give it to them), bean soup, they love pizza and will steal one if they have any opportunity. Once, the little dachshund stole a whole pizza and ate it. Unbelievable. The doxie wiill also dive into my bowl of Thai curry, onto which I have generously sprinkled diced thai chilis and it is hotter than most humans can tolerate. She loves it. So what do other food lovers who are also dog lovers do for their doggies?
