Jackie, I'm very sorry to hear about your loss.
For those who still think that is it ok to feed your pet human food even after Jackie's message I just found this article on http://www.petalia.com.au
"Feeding pets food that we enjoy is not only wrong, it can also be fatal. There are some foodstuffs that humans relish which cause illness and death if eaten by pets.
Chocolate, macadamia nuts and onions are good examples. Each of these foods contains chemicals which rarely cause problems for humans, but for dogs, these same chemicals can be deadly."
