Okay so I think Luke does it cause he's thirsty because we've taken a nice, long walk. But really dirt? It's dry. I don't see how any animal could find dirt appetizing? I mean I know animals do weird stuff, my hamsters ate their poop for nutrients, but licking dirt?

So does anyone know why dogs (or is it just Luke I wonder) lick dirt? Believe me, I stop him every time, but is there something in the dirt that he just wants to lick? Or is he just being a boy dog and wants to get a bit messy?

Good question! Leeo would stick his head into a dirt hole he dug looking for rodents and snort it up his nose and then lick his face. :/ How do they even breath right doing that? I cannot see how it even has a good taste to it. Could it be for minerals? :/
