When I FIRST moved out of my parents house I lived in a neighborhood with a LOT of college kids.. The complex I lived in had a "no pet" policy, so my next door neighbors had their dog out most of the day, and in at night.. She was basically the neighborhood dog.. She had a different name from every person there and was spoiled rotten with treats.. Well, to the point of the post.. One day coming home from eating dinner out, we saw her crawling out of the ditch.. No biggie, figured she was probably coming to say hello.. Until we saw her struggling with something.. When we looked closer, she was pulling a DEER HEAD out of the ditch.. Now, I have no desire to see things like that, so I don't know if it was a stuffed mounted kind of thing, or if it was something chopped off and thrown out, but either way it was still a shock!!
And as for our dogs, they still like to get their mouths on the kitty litter, any trash that blows into the yard, chunks of cement from the contstruction, wood, and Lucky is the only one that eats doggie poop.. Thank GOD they don't eat tampons!!
That reminded me of a story about one of my Aunt's dogs. She had six dogs when I was growing up. She had a nice big fenced in yard, so when it was time for the dogs to go out, she just opened the door and let them run around. One night when we were watching a movie, I opened the door and let the dogs back inside. I continued on watching the movie with Corky (dog) sitting next to me. All of a sudden we started to smell something HORRIBLE. It was truly foul. I looked down at Corky, and sitting next to my leg was a squirrel's head. It was chaos for 10 minutes. Everytime I watch "The Last Boyscout" I flash back to dead squirrels.
I should point out that the dog tugging along the deer's head was a SMALL dog.. She may have been 20 lbs at best.. She looked like a dachsund mix or something.. Short legs.. Real cutie.. And to see her tugging a deer's head out of a ditch.. Well that was too much!!
Catpoop. One of my dogs just love to dig the cat litter box and then bring the poop to the living room for everyone to smell. I sure wish there was a way to make him stop. Not only is it seriously gross, but it sure can't be healthy.
my chihuahua will go outside and eat those horse shoe clippings and I try to pick them up and threw them away and she still finds them. I think it's grose because the horses step in mud, their pee, and mud and anything else on the ground. it's so nasty and she has really bad breath also aferward. yuck!!!
My dog Gracie thinks that cat poop is a gourmet treat. Unfortunately, the only place she can get it is in our garden, so she is constantly tearing up plants! Augie, our little dog, has a tendency to bring us moles, birds, squirrels and whatever else he could find.
imsoto2, what we're doing to prevent the cat litter problem is basically walling off the cat pan area.. We have 4 cats and 6 pans so the dogs like to raid it on their way out the garage.. It wasn't a problem until we moved here a few months ago.. So, we're just getting some plywood and 2x4's and making a little wall just to deter them.. Hopefully the cats are still ok with going if they can't see the other cats coming in.. Ours are usually ok with each other so I think we'll be ok.. Maybe try baby gates??
When I used to take my dog to the school or pool to pick up the kids he would always find some one's chewed up gum that was in the grass. He loved to chew it, but I hated to have to take it out of his mouth because I didn't know who had been chewing it first.
My other dog used to like eating our female's poop.
My brother wants to make a dog treat or toy that smells or taste like tampons because his and my sister's dogs both like them and he was feeling like there must be a milion other dogs out there with the same interest (he was right).
My cocker once got a hold of my girlfriends birth control and ate all the pills. We were so scared! called the vet right away but apparently she said it was no need for alarm. Siena was just really moody! :)
My mom's lab mix ate a (thankfully, clean) tampon. When he tried to poop it out the string got stuck, and he was going nuts, so my mom had to pull it out for him...
My dog doesn't really eat gross stuff so much as roll in it. He really enjoys rolling in poo whenever he gets the chance. We once brought him with us to a large picnic and he found dog poo to roll in, so I had to clean him up with wet-naps that had been provided by the caterer so that I could put him in my car. We once went to a park and he found a skeletonized fox carcass and started rolling on that, too.
My champ loves eating alive bees & grasshoppers, he'll chase ants and slurp them up all day if he could. He once ate a piece of an old cigarette off the street. Molly's eaten old gum off the sidewalks before and she'll lick anything, including the walls. She even devoured half of my burrito once that was wrapped in napkin..that must've tasted pretty good. Nothing particularly disgusting but still kinda gross.
