"Tree Rats are right about one thing;
acorn meat is delicious!"
Tucker, our Golden Retriever taught Bentley how to crack an acorn. He used to place an acorn on top of his paw and crack it, eat the meat, and knock the shell off. Bentley cracks them in his mouth and spits out the shells. We have thousands of them falling this time of the year in our yard.
Does your dog eat acorns or something else unusual?
How do you stop them?
**We don’t encourage your dog to eat acorns. According to the ASPCA, since dogs don’t usually forage on acorns, and even if they do ingest several acorns, it is not a chronic situation. Bentley will eat one if it is conveniently located near where he is relaxing in the yard. Neither he nor Tucker ever got sick from eating them. Acorns can cause vomiting, diarrhea and tummy aches in some dogs, especially smaller breeds. The acorn can also cause obstructions.
We are also hopping along with Sugar the Golden Retriever and Dachshund Nola for their Black & White Sunday blog hop. If you love B & W photography, you’re in for a treat. Visit Sugar, Nola, and the other participants.
