Not the parasites I was wondering if any other labs out there have a thing for earth worms. I swear Lola sniffs them out under the ground, digs them up and then eats part of them. After the little snack, she rolls in them until she has the fresh scent of smashed worm on her coat. Any others do this??
EEEEWWWW i don't like earth worms, though i do try to put them back on the earth if i see one crisping out on the patio in the afternoon sun!!- :-X
Can't say that either of my two have ever bothered with worms but then neither of them have particularly been diggers either-

If it moves, HK will eat it. If it used to move, HK will eat it. If it was carried by something (like the wind), HK will eat it. If it fell off a tree (like a leaf or an apple), HK will eat it. If it moves really fast (like a squirrel), I believe HK will eat it if she catches it.

i hear ya!! one of the best things our trainer told us was that dogs are gross and they will do and eat really gross things. it kind of put things in a different light for us!Originally Posted by Endofile
We used to call Robin, Worm because she would eat them off the pavement after a rain.

YES! Riley doesn't really dig them out of the ground, but when she finds them either dead or alive, she rolls around on top of them and has a happy party, smile and all. GROSS! :-X
