My dog eats so much dirt!

whenever we go outside he always runs to the dirt and starts eating it...
i don't understand. his stool have been black and hard recently, but just a sec ago his poopie was soft and mushy. could it be from the pork i bought?
also he just puked right next to me and sooooo much dirt came out with some food

whats going on ? oh and i also gave him his worms medicine this morning (second dose, and last one)

some people said pork was ok... a lot of websites i read said it was ok...
but im definately not going to touch it.
i thought i did a throrough enough research in order to do a barf diet, but im gonan feed dry food until i get EVERYTHING down pact...
my boy dones't seem lethargic, he's very active... so i dono wha to think...

i read around and it said that thechance of getting trichonella is less than 1%...
hopefully my pup is in the 99 percentile...

it might be that pica thing... when he puked, a lot of dirt came out as well as a string from my bathroom floor mat.
