Why do dogs find eating air irresistible? Well, when they're not battling crabs, fetching beers or fighting with sprinklers, dogs are usually trying to get some grub. And when there isn't a can of Alpo in sight, sometimes, they've got to get creative.

Either that, or dog owners have just figured out an easy way to get their dogs to do something really funny on camera for a few seconds. The point is, when confronted with a strong breeze (or even a gentle blow), pups have one instinct and one instinct only: chomp!

We searched high and low and found 19 videos of various dogs and puppies eating air with vigor, all for your amusement. It's just one of the many services man's best friend provides us. Vote for your favorites and comment below.
