      I don’t think any one really knows the answer to that!

      Sometimes animals eat strange things like grass and soil when they are feeling poorly. Some people think this is to make themselves sick.

      Dogs are omnivores, which means they eat plants as well as meat, so it may just be a normal part of their diet.

      Either way, it doesn’t really do any harm.
