First of all Chloe is terrible:uhoh:, that out she ate a huge Spider about 2 hours ago and seems to be just fine...after much research I figured out it was a Wolf Spider...I seen it, it was going for Jack, pulled him out of the way and here comes my brave (not) Chloe and gabbles it up and eats it:yuck:

Don't think she got bit by it as she seems just fine, I would thing by now I would see something, some sign of something!

Just this morning she brought in a nice big caterpillar and laid it right in front of Nikki's feet, Nikki lost it, screaming on the chair "Mom get that thing"...Chloe thought it was a toy as it rolled up on her a few times:doh:

I know a lot of you guy's don't like Spiders but here is a picture of the one she ate:doh::yuck::yuck::yuck:

O.K... I'm still having the 'shivers' after seeing that picture :nervous:.....I had to scroll down really fast (snakes don't bother me at all).

Here is something interesting that I found on the internet :p::

Just Plain Weird Stories

Myth: You unknowingly swallow an average of four live spiders in your sleep each year.

Fact: This very widespread urban legend has no basis in fact. It exists in various forms; another common version is that you swallow an average of 20 in your lifetime. (At 4 per year, that would make a very short lifetime of 5 years...) A correspondent in Pennsylvania had heard a version that involved swallowing a pound of spiders (while sleeping) in one's lifetime. (That would be over 20,000 average spiders, for a lifetime of 5,000 years at the 4 per year rate).

For a sleeping person to swallow even one live spider would involve so many highly unlikely circumstances that for practical purposes we can rule out the possibility. No such case is on formal record anywhere in scientific or medical literature.

Since this page first appeared, I have heard from one person who found a small harmless spider hiding in her ear (which is possible), two who claimed to have had one in their noses (but had no evidence that it wasn't already in the hanky), and a few who stated that years ago, when they were young children, they spat out or brushed from their mouths an object they interpreted (while still groggy with sleep) as a spider or spider leg. Those stories are so similar they may qualify as a distinct urban legend. Of course nobody ever preserved the evidence, and I remain unconvinced that a spider would visit a huge breathing monster and enter its mouth. The only credible account came from a woman who'd had a ballooning spider blow into her open mouth in a grassy field on a windy day – but that, too, happened when she was a child!


My dogs will try to eat a bug but usually will spit it back out again. Chloe is a riot, I can just picture her playing with a roly poly caterpillar!!!!!!

I don't even like to think about what my dogs have eaten over the years. Around here, deer poop is a favorite.

Silly chloe! Spiders have really small mouth parts and Chloe probably chomped down before it had a chance to muster its defenses.:doh:

She was just being protective! I'm not sure what is prompted the caterpillar fascination, but some of those can sting pretty bad. She just might get the "wrong" kind one day and avoid them like the plaque after.

I'm not sure what is the worse thing Copper has eaten, but the two main contenders are a mummified possum and (separate incident) a whole squirrel in one piece.:yuck: Dogs eat the wierdest stuff.:no:

Re the Just Plain Weird Stories:

I actually swallowed a fly when I was a kid. I was playing in our front yard, yelling and carrying on, and all of a sudden a fly flew into my mouth! It was soooo GROSS!!! I still remember the taste, to this day!

I'm surprised that she ate the spider. I thought that they tasted really bad. I saw Duke try to eat one once. He quickly spit it out and started salivating. He was flinging drool all over the place. I don't think he tried that again.
