A skateboarding Japanese bulldog called Bazooka is the latest internet sensation. Some very entertaining film of Bazooka riding his board in aTokyo park is proving a huge hit at places like this BBC website.
The only problem Bazooka's owner has is that Bazooka loves to eat his skateboard too, which is proving rather expensive.
This is far from the most unusual eating habit we've heard of, however. Dogs can get cravings to eat the most bizarre things.
This need to eat non-food items is known as pica and can involve dogs consuming anything from linoleum to electrical cords, coins and clothing to kitchen knives.
Scientists think the condition is the result of factors such as stress, obsessive-compulsive disorders and brain damage. It can also be caused by sheer hunger.
Needless to say, this can be dangerous. Among the stranger things dogs enjoy consuming is anti-freeze, which many dogs lap up when it leaks from car radiators on to roads or garage floors. Antifreeze contains a sweet-tasting chemical called ethylene glycol, which is a powerful stimulant to the dog's sweet taste buds. Small amounts of antifreeze can cause "drunkennessa", vomiting, depression and diarrhoea.
