Can the owner (100% stock) of a Sub Chapter S Corporation deduct dog food as a miscellaneous business expense?

Is the following true:

The difference between Business Income - Business Expenses can be declared as wages or re-invested in the company.

Personal expenses, such as personal auto miles, lawyer fees for a divorce, debt payments to visa for old/personal debt, non-business related food expenses, and dog food should be deducted from wages, AFTER federal income tax is paid.

Many thanks for any info,
