... catches them, ... kills them, ... and eats them!

I've often seen Charlie snapping at flying bugs, including the stinging ones. I warned him that he was going to get stung, but he persisted :).

Yesterday I watched as he grabbed a wasp & immediately spit it out, too quickly for it to sting him I assume. He then grabbed it again & spit it out again. After a couple of repeats it was dead and he ate it! What next?! Life with a V is interesting, for sure.

Shine is like Charlie.
I think she's caught, and eaten so many, that she's built up a immunity to their sting.

Dogs are gross, scientific fact. Hope to never come across a yellow jacket nest, seems like the pup in the pic above did, ouch!

I've heard they can be pretty rough on a dogs stomach, if they eat to many.

You were lucky! My silly V, ate a live bee, & we made a visit to the emergency vet, as my V started growing lumps all over his face & body!!!
