I took Boeing out for a walk this morning so he could go potty too. He found a spot he liked among the tall grass and half disappeared in it. About 10 sec. later, he scurried out and started running funny, stopping in between to scoot his butt. I had to finally pin him between my legs so I could find out what was troubling him. Sure enough...two monstrous red ants (those that are about 1 cm long) were hanging on to his anus for dear life!!! The silly beagle pooped into an ants' nest /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif .
