Strange eating habit.

My 14 year old cattle dog, Perkins, is starting to worry me with his craving for my lemon scented geraniums, I wish I knew if they are harmful or safe to eat. On the minus side, the plants are losing size because he really grabs mouthfuls of leaves to eat, while on the plus side, he has nice lemon scented breath.
It is strange in that none of the others seem interested. Can anyone set my mind at ease about this, please?

Actually, there are two pages on Pelargoniums (similar to geraniums) in a gardening catalogue I have and they refer to them as old fashioned herbs and say they are used as sweet flavouring for sorbets and cake icing by adventurous chefs ..... maybe the dog isn't as weird as I thought? Still, they're about to flower so I wish he'd quit eating them.
