our dogs go for a bug or two, I dont really worry about it but I did read somewhere to discourage it as some bugs could have pestcides, stingers, some other noxious substance..ect
Kelso loves to hunt for bugs


as far as cicadas, I googled it and found this link
http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2004/03/0330_040330_cicadafacts.html

i never knew cicadas where a delicacy
Anyway, scroll down the page and it says they are harmless to dogs unless they eat to many and it could cause a blockage from too many skins

John the Babtist ate locusts and wild honey. I suppose it is unlikely to hurt a dog if people can eat them, though that is not 100% true. But bugs are a part of nature and dogs will eat them.

Dubya has been eating a regular stream of carpenter bees and I watched Babsy scarf one down today. No way am I going to fight her for a bee.

One would think that with the price I pay for dog food, and the vigilence I practice in choosing treats, my dogs would be too picky to eat gross stuff. Wishful thinking. I suppose we just have differing opinions as to what is gross.

Well she did fine over night, so she's fine...but she did manage to gobble her another one...Semms like when a GSD is determined to eat something, you are not going to take it away.

I can pick anything out of any of my dog's mouths. But I draw the line at bees if they want to get stung, fine.
