Dog dilemma #1

Yes I have a doggie dilemma.

My dog is eating grass!

I googled "why is my dog eating grass" and here is what I found...

Answer: This is an age-old question, one that I have never really seen a clear cut answer to. I think there are many possibilities: they like the taste of grass, they are hungry, they are not feeling well and eating something to see if that helps (kind of like humans do sometimes!).

That really does not help me. I also read that they will throw up after they eat the grass.

On my new carpet!!

My other question is can I train her like I have trained my kids to run for the bathroom?

Yes, your dog will throw up...just like our cats (well, now just one cat) throw up after eating grass. Don't know if you can train him to run to the bathroom, but I swear our calico was practically trained to only throw up on the tile. Promise. I'm not crazy!

Hi there,
Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog - it's nice to meet you. Your blog is just adorable.

My dog does the same thing and I've heard it's because they have an upset stomach, but I'm not sure I believe that. I think sometimes they just get a taste for "salad". LOL

I always thought it would be nice if we could teach our pets to use the facilities.... Do any animals do that? I would like them SO much better if they could!

Oh my goodness... I think they eat the grass because they don't feel good and need to throw up!! As far as the bathroom issue.... You train that dog and I will be manager.... YOU will be a wealthy woman! RRMama the dog poopy, throw up, tinkle trainer. YEAH!
Hugs,

Oh yeah.... I love the Memories Jar... Too cool and it is so much better than mine!
