dogs eating grass

Penny eats a little bit of grass most days - which I hope isn't a sign of an unsettled stomach - and sometimes I've thought she was having a nibble of a plant we call 'bamboo', even though it's not. It's arundo donax.

For a while we thought maybe she was licking drops of water off it.

Well, yesterday I think I definitely saw her chew on it. And here's the photo I took:

In the past, I've seen her eat other types of grass, but I'm surprised that she would nibble on such a tough grass.

Mine are grass lovers :) Haylie eats rougher grass than Fred does and always has, maybe it taste different?!

We both love munching on grass too, Penny! We love salad!

Love ya lots,

Hound Girl and Maggie and Mitch, it's kind of a relief to hear other dogs eat grass, because I must admit I'm a teensy bit worried about it. She ate lots this morning and I've got some more photos. I want to try to figure out what the other grass is - the one she ate today.
