Buster ate a dead lizard :puke:

We live in FL. Lizards are EVERYWHERE.
My other dogs hunt and chase lizards, paw at them and sadly sometimes kill them. Then they leave them alone.

Buster has no interest in chasing or hunting. But he tried to eat a dead lizard yesterday - and to my horror I had to fish it out of his mouth. It was awful, smelly and squishy. I gave him a greenie, lots of water and banned him from smooches.

Today - he found another freshly dead lizard that Bacon "played to death"... and ATE THE WHOLE THING.

I gave him a greenie, lots of water and will brush his teeth later. I was expecting puke... and nothing all day. Been about 4 hours already.

on a positive note, he is going to bed and not throwing a fit.
He still throws a fit when we leave, but he does eventually calm down and stop shrieking after about 45 min.

My dogs are both lizard hunters! They go nuts running around all the bushes trying to find them. Luckily, they rarely ever get one and they have never eaten one. My yorkie is also a toad licker and thank goodness my Havanese is not. Toads have a poison on their skin and if the toad gets irritated enough he lets my yorkie have it. He shakes his head afterwards and eats grass and sometimes vomits. And he keeps doing it!!! I keep him on leash when we go out to potty before bed and steer him clear of them. My Havanese assists my yorkie in mole hunting. She is the brains of the operation and finds where they are at and my yorkie dives in and gets them. One summer he killed 20 moles. Mine are definitely both hunters.

We have a screened in pool deck ... and Bacon (rescue mix) is the lizard hunter. He patrols the perimeter and takes care of any lizard or critter that has breached our security!!

And now, I guess Buster is the cleaner...

So now Mommy and Daddy have to do patio patrol to remove Bacon's victims before Buster gets the chance.
