Boxer puppy tastes a lime wedge. (SLDogV)

Is it the lime or is it the fact that his tasty snack is covered in gross gritty sand due to CRUEL UNCARING HOOMINS.

That dog will happily lick it's own genitals and eat the cat's poop.

I somehow doubt it found the sand gross.

I'll have to try this with my dogs. I know they love, love, love sour worms.

At Chipotle in Chicago the other day the dude in line ahead of me asked the cashier for "lime cheeks." The employee was befuddled, as was I, though he apparently meant lime wedges. Does anyone here call them "cheeks"? Is it a regional thing?

I used to have a dog that would eat almost anything we gave her, except cantaloupe. When I gave her a piece of that, she would pick it up in her mouth, hold it there for a second, and then spit it out. Then, of course, she would notice the cantaloupe again, start sniffing it, and repeat the whole process. Every time, though, she would spit it out a little further away from her than where she picked it up, so if you let her stay at it long enough she would slowly work her way across the room, just picking up the cantaloupe and spitting it out.

Of course, we did this every time we had cantaloupe.

At first I wondered if maybe they like the citrus flavor, but the intense smell somehow overwhelms their delicate sniffers...then I remembered the time I saw a dog happily carrying a dead skunk in its mouth, so...probably not.

I think it is because it feels as if citrus bites you! Right in your mouth! But it has some sweetness too. Very confusing!

No, see. He was motioning to his owner that she was holding the smartphone was in portrait mode. Humans are so stupid.

i had Important Stuffs to do today but now i will only watch maymo videos for the rest of my life and it is all your fault metafilter

Wow! I had just watched this puppy tasting a lime about an hour ago. It was the natural result of dog video watching from the Chase the batdog obit posted earlier.

Luna looks remarkably like the pup we adopted about 2 months ago as well. Except our little monster is already over 50 pounds.

I am afraid to say, if I could (discounting semi-successful teenage experimentation), it would prolly be rather more difficult to leave the house than it is now.

What, you've never had that dream? It's not as satisfying as it's been built up to be.

That dog will happily lick it's own genitals

So these two old guys were sitting on a bench in the park on a leisurely afternoon, watching a dog lick its own genitals.

"Boy, I wish I could do that," says the first man.

"Oh, you can," his friend says, "but you should pet him first."

Actually, the proper feline equivalent is olives but no one has made a compilation video of them yet.

This is adorable. Wish the owner kept her foot out of the frame, but...hey!

We had a foster kitten for a time who was like this with very small rocks.

"Food! I will eat that! No, its a rock. Yuck. Oh look! Food! I will eat that! No, its that same rock. Yuck. HEY! FOOD!"

He would do an accompanying dance but, alas, we never caught it on tape. They are mysterious creatures, dog and cats.

I love the "Please, please take this away from me! I cannot help myself and will continue to try to consume this poison until it is removed from the area."

Mainly because I'm the same way about junk food.

My cat has taken to hunting cherries from the box and then playing with them all over the living room. I don't think it has occurred to him that they can be eaten, or maybe he just ponders why the human eats a perfectly good toy.

I do see olives in his future though.

Chicagoan here and, um, no. Never heard that before.

On first read, I thought the customer wanted the cashier to stuff two lime wedges in his cheek pockets and make a chipmunk face or something. But you can only ask for that during the off-rush periods.

Dear Apple,

The iPhone 6 should have a camera lens that films video in landscape mode even when the phone is held in the portrait orientation. Use mirrors or a level or software or something.

Oh, and enforce some frickin' workers' rights with Foxcomm.
