Seamus and Sail love almost any fruit (I know, no grapes, no avocado) so I was wondering: Is watermelon rind safe for them to eat? They like the flesh, and it seems like it'd be fun to chew on.

 

Also: What fruits do they eat at the track? I think I read bananas somewhere -- which is funny because that's one the lurcher won't touch and the ex-racer loooooves.

Well, Bella's been given watermelon slices by DH who misunderstood that I would only give her the fruit and not the rind - and she suffered no ill effects. Not sure what that's worth, but there you go :D

I know some people pickle watermelon rind, so it should be fine. I'm not sure if I would let them have a lot of it though as it might upset their stomach, but it's not toxic.

I would make sure to wash the rind. I wash all fruits and veggies. Think of what could happen when you slice into the rind with a knife, bacteria can enter.
