    Taj does that too. I've taught her to dig on command(yeah I know great thing to teach a dog huh?). She will dig furiously at mole holes and actually uses her mouth to grab large chunks of grass and dirt and sometimes eats it and gags. I've never seen any adverse reactions from it and don't really correct her for it. I think it might be slightly different than Lucy though because she only seems to want to move the dirt out of her way quicker to get the critter, she doesn't actually sit down and start ingesting it like food.

    That reminds me Kelly.  Some how I got Niko to learn to attack weeds when I pull them.  Its hilarious to see her come charging across the yard and attack the weed as im trying to pull it out of the ground still.  The sad part is she gets real excited she doesnt realize the difference between the weed and my hand until I throw it across the yard.
