ANSWER #4 of 4

My dog has taken to doing the same thing. Only it's not right after I flick the ash, it's when I've missed the can and ash remains on the ground. Its my opinion that they are probably deficient of some mineral that can be found in the ash. Animals are great for self regulating when they need something (as you've probably witnessed yourself as your dog ears grass at times when their stomach needs it).. I would assume however that it's not healthy for them. Probably getting a multi vitamin with minerals will do the trick :)
