The primary reason that your pooch is indulging in the green blades typically found in his backyard is that it tastes good. Yep, it’s that simple, It tastes good to them. If you observe more closely you will likely find that there are specific blades of grass that pooch favors. She’ll forage for the same type of young bright green grass. The darker, thicker and older blades are normally passed over. One reason we think ‘furry’ chooses the young blades is because they are sweeter and more tender hence tastier. Another reason is that the young blades offer ample amounts of Chlorophyll. We all benefit from daily greens.

There is another reason you might see your pooch snarfing down gobs of green grass without regard.  This behavior indicated stomach upset.  She may have ingested something that needs to come back up and out.  Maybe bad food or some random environmental intake.  This way of grass eating will more likely produce vomiting.  Which was likely the reason for her eating gobs of it in the first place.

Dogs are amazing creatures and we can learn from watching them and their behaviors.

We all love to take our furry friend with us when enjoying outdoor activities.
In fact, water sports are always a great way to spend some cool summer fun.

Some breeds of dog are built better for water than others.  It’s likely you already know if your pup is a water lover and good at swimming.
If they indeed are water wigglers keep a watchful eye on them while at play.  They tend to get into trouble just like human toddlers can.
Brachycephalic dog breeds aren’t known for their aquatic talents and it’s a great idea to have a life jacket for him.  Especially if any kind of boating is involved.  It is still a good idea for all types of dog to have on a well-fitted life jacket if boating in any way.

Also, it’s important for us to remember that their paw pads are just like our bare feet. If in doubt about the heat of the ground stand barefoot and count to 7. If it’s too hot for you then it’s too hot for them. Consider a different ground surface or carry them to your intended destination.
Happy Fun in the Sun
