A dog is metabolically and physiologically unlike a human, and could no more eat a human diet, or behave like a human, than it could eat or behave like a camel.

ukmicky, you missed out the point that dogs don't have puppies; bitches do, but I doubt it matters.

From personal experience I can assure you that dogs can survive very well on the same diet as humans. Some years back I had a dog (spaniel x retriever) who ate mostly leftovers from our dinners and she lived to be 17.

I think they did this in Down and Out in Beverly Hills.  Nick Nolte had to show the dog how to be a dog.
