View Full Version : I think Ben ate cow pie

27th July 2010, 11:37 PM
I was visiting a farmer friend the other day and Ben as usual sniffed around on the end of his flexy lead but then appeared to be eating somthing on a gravel area. I quickly opened his mouth and stuck my fingers in but nothing could be found, only a brown staining on his tongue which smelled like the stuff that comes out of the back end of a cow. It was a relatively clean area but some "stuff" may have come off a tractor wheel. or it may even have been rabbit droppings,
Why would he eat it? he has shown no ill effects but he will be watched much more closely on his farm visits from now on.

because it's a doggy delicacy, of course :badgrin::badgrin:

I went to Charleen's house one summer and her dogs were outside hunting for.. :winkct:pies.. :yuk: I told Charleen if her dogs taught my dogs to eat cat poop, that was the end of our friendship! :rotfl:

I can never decide which is worse -eating it or rolling in it :eek::bang::D

I've had Cavaliers which do both...

I'm sure it won't do him any harm Jim - they do seem to like poo for some reason!
