    Is he doing?
    The snow had long gone off of this piece of wood and it's something he quite often does :confused:

    I don't know what he is doing and why he is doing this but surely it looks like he will soon move onto raping this stick. :eek: :)

    He reminds me of an anteater trying to get ants out of a log :)

    Dogs are driven by smell/scent, the action is not one of eating nor the casual sniff as they might use on a lamppost but this is savouring the moment, more akin to the best truffle, a fine wine or wonderful drug.

    It's likely if the wood was uncovered (dropped by a different dog?) and free from snow it was used as a scent marking post by some wild animal, and your dog finds the smell stimulating as might a human find coffee, mustard or horseradish sauce lifts their mood.

    The dog seeks to own the smell and if you took the lump of wood home you dog would be very pleased with you. This is the same behaviour as rolling in interesting poo.

    Assuming you are averagely clean today: stick your finger in your belly-button and offer it to your dog to sniff, you will likely find the same slow considered licking action of your finger results.

    I would agree with you BUT he did continue to eat it and a little while later just left it as something more interesting came up
