Issue was further complicated and magnified by the fact the mother knew the 12 year old who was dared to eat the dog food has scoliosis and wears a brace! Really!?!?!!!!!
Oh.... right and the fact the child had brain surgery couple years ago, meaning they had to shave her long hair off, long recovery, gets put into special needs class..............


I'm not sure the relevance. Are you implying that the dare was to specifically tease and pick on an individual who already has had some challenges?

We just need to wait on (the other) Tom to provide you the best recipe - or perhaps to recommend you only buy dog food from Ticino
As a kid, we always ate dog biscuits on long trips in the car.

Any, there's this: http://www.ozy.com/true-story/i-did-...dog-food/36846

Re: 11 yr old B-day party-- Truth or Dare.... Just how wrong is this dare?

I'd be pretty annoyed and upset if this happened to one of my kids attending a party where the parents are meant to be responsible and taking care of the kids. I am not an uptight parent generally. I don't think that dog food is for humans, I wouldn't want to eat it myself.

I agree with the previous poster who thought this was plain weird. Actually, I'd have to say something to the parent in question.

You're lucky.

We had to eat elephant and monkey biscuits:

I've made kids eat worms (spaghetti) maggots (rice) and lots of bodily fluids, (think ketchup, jelly, jam ettc) AND dogfood......... pate in reality.
I think i-b-deborah has hit the nail on the head.

The information has come second or third hand through a bunch of 11 year olds. It wasn't dogfood at all. That's why the mother in question isn't bothered about all the fuss.

Still a bit cruel, but not really a health hazard.

My two youngest keep trying to eat our dog's dry food, so it must taste good!

They both managed to eat quite a fair amount of it, and are still alive.

Considering that my daughter refuses to touch anything that looks remotely like a vegetable, I find her love for dog food quite hilarious!
OH my! My 4.5 years old is still eating it. Same as your daughter.

Re: 11 yr old B-day party-- Truth or Dare.... Just how wrong is this dare?

This is certainly tamer than the games of truth-or-dare that were played in my youth, which didn't involve parental supervision. We're lucky no one lost a limb and that no one got pregnant.

Times have changed, as have attitudes towards risk.

C'mon DB. If it wasn't real dog food a bit of a nudge-nudge wink-wink "don't tell the kids" explanation between the parents would have immediately diffused the situation.

I'd be interested to know what it was exactly: i.e. dry vs. wet. When people say dog food, I immediately think real dog food (i.e. wet) vs. the dog biscuits.

Tom - are you sure you aren't from Yorkshire?

I'm sure the kid won't feel ruff but be sure to see a vet if she starts licking her arse to clean it.

No, the dare unfortunately was the one the girl picked from a bunch of dares folded up on pieces of paper organized by the b-day girl's mom.

The thing is... the mother knows everything about this girl, the health challenges she has been going through, the hard time she's having in school, being bullied, etc......

Just think she was so insensitive to this girl and should have changed the dare.
