    My new puppy has a little bite of the grass each time we take her out to the garden, which, as she is 8 weeks old, is quite a lot. Will the grass harm her at all and should I be trying to discourage her from doing this? ;)

    tell you what it worries me because grass makes dogs throw up!

    Mika does it and i try and stop him. My dad says dogs do that because they have an upset tummy. But i know Mika is fine in himself because he eats and he drinks water - so why eat grass?

    My pugs graze obsessively like cows. Pugs lick carpets, eat grass and lick thin air.

    You will learn these funny little quirks as you go along.......they really are a little bit different :D

    Phew! Although I have read every book and article on the internet about puppies and Pugs, there are just some topics and little things I just need assurance on.

    I am typing this with one hand, as Nelly puglet is asleep in the other arm, oh and she has just passed wind - nice! :blushing:

    Hi everyone. I'm sure that the reason dogs and cats chew and lick grass is that it contains folic acid or something like that. It's supposed to be beneficial to them. Hope this helps.

    Oh and pugs pass wind (a lot), belch, snore and are generally unladylike. Totally hilarious! ;)
