Whether it's kibble or a dropped bottle cap, dogs will shove pretty much anything you put in front of them into their mouths. It makes them natural competitive eaters, but as one owner found out, some breeds take the sport more seriously than others. In this spaghetti-eating battle, one tenacious Golden Retriever straight-up embarrassed his German Shepherd rival, who seemed to think this was some sort of friendly game. Hopefully the Shepherd will know better for the next round, provided the victor deigns to accept another match.
