I was walking her in my old apartment complex. Now normally, I try to keep a weather eye out to make sure Lulu doesn't get anything she's not supposed to. But I missed this burrito. She grabbed it before I had the chance. And then she dropped it, scrunched up her nose and pawed at her mouth as a million ants poured out of the wrap.
I wish I could say that ended her habit of grabbing things off the sidewalk.
Now, we've all heard of dogs eating crazy things. Lulu and Jasmine have never really strayed from food, and cat poop -- including cat poop left by outdoor cats. SO GROSS!
I remember a story about a beagle in the Tampa area that ate money.
This dog apparently ate stone -- 109 stones, to be precise! Vets have the Xrays to prove it!
Sometimes dogs eat strange things because of a mineral deficiency, or pica. But some experts think dogs mouth objects out of curiosity. It may be a behavioral issue too. Here's some more info on that from VetStreet.
I asked our friends on Facebook and Twitter what the weird items their dogs ate were. And here are some of the responses.

"M & D can't decide which is the worst... Dad's size 14 Italian leather shoe, the time I climbed on the island to eat 6 BONE IN buffalo chicken wings, or the time I opened the stove to climb up onto the counter & eat a dozen & 1/2 chocolate chip cookies..." 👀😐😑 #Beagles -- Mis Marie and Eddie
"Lily once chewed a hole in the flat surface of a wall, the size of a half dollar." -- Judy Allen Hetrick
"I once ate nine pieces of fudge with toothpicks in each one telling the flavor......one toothpick came out whole!" -- Bailey, from Julie Radcliff
"Well, he was about 9 months old. I came home from work to find a bog decorative light bulb broken all over the living room floor with screw part of the light bulb and the inside of the light bulb in his mouth which was closed shut with what a call jaws of steel. The vet said to give him rice with his dinner to help any glass he may have swallowed go down easier. He was fine. A box of tea bags also disappeared." -- Jill Gmit and Jensen.
"Murphy ate a whole bag of dark chocolate Hershey kisses, wrappers and all, stolen off of the kitchen table. That's one vet emergency I never want to experience again!" -- Teresa Petersen
"Sophie has taken to ripping up our carpeting and eating it when her separation anxiety kicks in. This is her pouting after we put bed sheets down so she couldn't get to the carpet as easily." -- Adrian Garneau
