Tealeaf the snail squisher

(Ernest's mum will like this....) When I was younger, I was an intrepid snail squisher. I progressed from using my paws to eating them, which for some reason AlphaB was not to keen on. You'd think she would be grateful, what with me keeping them off the plants. Ok so I trample THROUGH the plants to get to the snails, but what do you want, perfection?

This was my first ever snail squish.... I was about 4 months old.

Take that! SPLAT!

Btw.. my friends Opie and Gomer have their own fundraiser going on over on their blog Dogs Aye View , it costs you not one penny (or cent, or euro, or whatever!) but their mum will donate 10 cents every time you:
1) visit their blog (click on the link, click on the link
2) leave a comment.
3) click on the purple paw.

See their blog for more details....

I do believe snails are a delicacy. Alpha B is clearly not up on her fancy foods.

Tealeaf was such a cute puppy! And a cute adult. I'm not sure about squishing snails but I am not above trying anything once!

The Lurchers say they hope Tealeaf doesn't eat snail now because they can be a cause of lungworm. So my vet told me last week!

You would have loved our yard in California, Tealeaf - - we had millions of snails!

n.mom loves it and will pay airfare for tealeaf to accompany her on her morning desnailings.

Ernest is not interested in snails.

Mistress chucks them over the wall. I don't get chance to play with them.

TBH I prefer the strawbs.

@ Finnegan

You be careful Finny, the shells can stick in a Wolfies paws, you know...

@ Gomer & OPie

EVERYONE knows that they taste like chicken. ;-)

We've never gotten to eat a snail, Tealeaf is lucky. Do they taste like chicken?

oh! poor snails and poor plants.

I… prefer the chickens, are more appetizing. And (ejem) CATS! but that is illegal for me. Female leader does not allow to play with cats !!!
