Eating Ants

by Regis Boff

Clemson Boff, my puppy, eats ants. These insects, particularly the black and large-scale variety are hamstrung and virtually defenseless by their propensity to follow each other in a perfect line. Slow moving prey is perfect for lazy ass predators like Golden Retrievers.
He will lay close to their entrance opening into the kitchen and leisurely lick them up until he exhausts an entire nest.
Should he dose off and miss a couple, I will hear a substantial thud as he smashes the escapees with his giant front paws.
