Grass Eating

Dear Jasmine,
My humans never cease to confuse me. They tend to always be curious about my eating grass and they want me to stop eating grass. I do not quite understand why this would be a problem. any suggestions as to why?
Woof, woof,
Max
Dear Max,
Most humans believe that the only reason we pups eat grass is because it helps us with our nausea (you know your tummy hurts) . But most of the time our tummies are not hurting when we go after the green stuff–sometimes we just want to chomp and sometimes we are simply bored and it looks like fun!

It can be dangerous though to eat grass that has been sprayed with chemicals so that might be why they want you to quit! And sometimes, eating things other than our doggie food can be a problem.  If your human is wanting to know more about our grass eating habits they can read more about it here.

Wag, wag…

I am a three year old German Shepherd from South Georgia.  I don’t really have a favorite toy because my favorite things are sleeping and getting petted on the head. Although if I do get up some energy I will admit that I love getting into the trash to look for napkins.

My brother Teddy is lots of fun to play with, plus he usually takes the blame for my chewing.  I really like him for that!  I love to bark a lot; sometimes my humans do not appreciate that so much.  I am SUPER special because I am a white German Shepherd and that is not so common I hear.
