A dead bird, but he spit it out when forced to. Dragged on leash, so we thought he wanted to do his business... then saw wing like things off either side of his mouth.

Oh no! Given that we live in the same city, I could totally see this happening to mine...poor pupster

Mine has been getting to wild black cherries, which isn't strange but is becoming a huge problem. Seems they are toxic and there are a ton in my yard. She is obsessed and runs right toward them. I may actually need to block off that part of the yard for a while; I literally have to drag her away.

She also got into a chicken bone on the beach, was worried about that for a while but I think it turned out ok.

She tries to eat anything and everything on walks. I really watch her and sometimes she finds stuff that is buried. Oh that hound nose.

Haha, mine does that too! I've heard that biting tails relieves stress and is a calming action... similar to the complete shake/drying-oneself action even when they aren't wet.
