Default Dog's taste buds

How lucky cows are. They can chew on grass all day and find it tasty.

But we have to eat yummy stuff. How about dogs? Can they taste what we
taste? Like sweetness, sourness, bitterness, and yummyness?

I like the term "yummyness" much better than "umami".
It is way easier to grasp.

Our dog only seems to have one set of taste buds to detect whether her
people have eaten this or not. I've NEVER before seen a dog who would
eat frozen green beans or frozen berries!

Yep, mine too! In fact, there isn't a whole lot of anything that
Maxi-dog won't eat!

Never met a black lab I didn't like and never met a black lab that didn't
like all the foods that I like.
