Woman divides opinion over whether your dog should sit at the table during Christmas dinner

A debate has been sparked over whether we should be letting our furry friends join in on festive fun from their own seat at the dinner table.

On Wednesday's episode of Good Morning Britain, Tinuke Bernard and Naomi Isted were on to discuss whether or not it's barking mad for your pooch to have its own place at the table to eat Christmas dinner.

While broadcaster Naomi was "more than happy" for her dogs to sit alongside her, blogger and influencer Tinuke said there was "no place" for dogs at the table.

GMB presenters Charlotte Hawkins and Adil Ray were also joined by adorable golden cockapoo Mabel for the debate.

When Adil asked Tinuke what she had against "adorable little Mabel," Tinuke said: "Mabel is adorable but her place should be on the floor not at a table, not when anyone else is eating."

However, Naomi responded saying she would "100 per cent" have her dogs at the dinner table for the festive meal.

While Mabel tucked into a turkey dinner of her own, Naomi said, "I think it's all about boundaries. We obviously have to give our kids, our dogs, our relationships, partners, boundaries. But at the same time, we all need to have a bit of fun from time to time and let go of those boundaries and just relax the rules.

"It's Christmas at the end of the day so I think it's all about the occasion […] let them sit at the table, let them have some Christmas dinner."

However, Tinuke still wasn't convinced by the argument that rules can be broken for a special occasion.

"I love my dogs to bits but I think that's one boundary – dogs don't know what day it is, they don't know if it's Christmas or not […] they can have the same dog food they had the day before and they'll be absolutely happy or they can have a special treat on the floor in their bowls not while I'm eating, not where I'm eating," she said.
