Carnivore, Herbivore?

Each of my schnauzers has a distinct personality. Hoover, in the middle photo, is my snake chaser. This is one of his favourite bushes to sniff out the slithering creatures. I just hope he doesn't try to eat one. At the moment, he seems too timid for that. He is as startled as they are when their paths cross. Thank goodness for that!

Lincoln, on the other hand, has added apples to his Treat Menu. Usually I have to worry about him running off and chasing a car or a toddler when he is in the front yard. With the apples ripe and falling from the tree, he is now content to sniff out the fruit and feast away. Three days ago, he discovered the ripened blackberries in the bushes out back. I'll try to get a photo. It seems my vegetarian ways are rubbing off on at least one of the dogs.
