|Juliem24||Think of how good the grass and ground smell after a rain..I bet it tastes good, too. My guy also likes to "taste test" especially after rains and new grass...now he's discovered the lettuce. He doesn't actually eat it (a lot).|

simple -- rain water has a different composition than ground water .
gardeners collect rain barrels full of rain water . I put out stainless steel mixing bowls to catch the rain water. Dogs love it.
As the rain moves through the atmosphere it picks up nitrogen . The pH has been changed . Typically tap water is neutral , a pH of 7.
Rainwater is mildly acidic with a pH less than 7 . Easier to absorb .
Here is a meteorologist's explanation Rain Water vs Ground Water
CrossRoads: Rain Water.......
most tap water has chlorine , and most communities have fluoride --- which is not the same as fluorine .
wash your hair with rainwater and see how soft your hair can be.

Licking the outside ground/grass
i'm not sure if this is normal or not but it is really annoying, when ever it rains out and i have to take ares for a walk, she is fixed on licking the ground and grass, even if she drinks her fill in water before we go out she does this, this is really annoying especially when i need her to use the bathroom, or i dont want her licking something and end up getting sick. so is this something she will grow out of? is my pup the only one that does this
