Default Rosa ate a grasshopper...

should I be worried? I thought she was just playing with it, since she had caught a really big one a couple minutes before but she just carried it around until I made her leave it. The another one jumped in her path and she pounced on it. The next thing I knew, she was crunching it down!

She will be fine. My boy loves eating bugs too, never had a problem with it.

Oh, whew! Well, I know she's hungry since she's on a diet. I'm going to have to start factoring the calorie count of grasshoppers now...

Don't worry. The grasshopper intake causes extra hopping and bouncing, resulting in the doggie burning off any extra calories they take in.

Anything that is tiny and moves around counts as a snack.

I have a grasshopper and bee stalker. She's 9 and the picture of health. I used to think it was the thrill of the chase. Nope, if I kill a bee for irritating me then don't clean it up, Morgan eats it.

I keep trying to convince my two that grasshoppers are an excellent snack, but thus far, neither one of them have fallen for it, even when I've tried handing it out like it's a really great treat.

No worries about eating grasshoppers. They're yummy and safe.
