Our new puppy, Nala wants to eat grass ALL the time. When we're outside she just wants to graze like a little cow the whole time. Is this normal? Is it bad? Should I try to stop it?
Also, I am reading so many differing opinions on puppy food. What do you think is the best (most affordable) dog food for her? I saw the Innova and thought it looked GREAT, but we just can *not* spend that much money on dog food. So, what's your advice?
Puff has always eaten grass -- much more often in the spring. She's selective about finding just the right blades.

My three labs have always grazed on grass and never gotten sick from it. So, I just let them eat it. I couple week ago I asked the same question about dog food brands. If you do a search, you should find my post and replies.
