Does anyone else's boxer do this?? It is the wierdest thing. He'll see one follow it and sop it up with his tongue. I have tried to stop him. Is this normal or OK for his health??

I don't know if it is healthy or not. My pup does not do this. She does eat slugs and grubs though. I was often wondering if this was healthy for her. Be interesting to find out.

Ogh!! That is right. Chance ate a slug too. That is too gross!!!

He threw uop twice the next day from that one. I guess it did not agree with him.

We have to check her mouth before bringing her in the house because she will spit them out and try to play with them. Little Girl does not get sick from them, but I do have to agree with you it is gross.

If Jack sees something moving (anything bug wise) he will eat it. He hasn't gotten sick, yet but it's sure gross.

Molly has show a certain affection for hunting little lizards and then carrying them around. We have to bribe her with a treat to get the lizard out of her mouth. Yucky! My big boy Caesar used to sit in giant ant piles. He would always have little bites all over his back. He never got sick or anything and eventually we figured he must like the little ants crawling all over him since he would sit right in the middle of the ant hole. He's a weird one, what can I say.

PS..I hear ants are high in protine

Max also likes to eat bugs. When we're outside, he'll pounce and lick up any bug moving on the sidewalk. I hope it's okay, cause it would be impossible to prevent him from eating them. He's so quick!! :)
 
Rowdy caught a bird the other day. He didn't eat it. He just chewed it up and left it to die. That'll teach him not to steal dog food.
Yesterday, Rowdy licked up a little wet mortar.

I used to eat ants when I was younger. They are a bit spicy when you bite them. I never got sick from doin it, so i doubt a dog will get sick. Lou is gross- he likes catching garden roaches, and crunchin on em- YUCK!

Both Phoebe and George will follow and ant for ever..........its the funniest thing ever to see such a big thing as George follow this tiny thing.............when he gets bored he stomps it with his paw....Pheobe being so little, she tries to gobble it up. To her it must seem like giant prey:D
