When I had a coonhound, she used to love to eat any and all poop that she could find. It was a big game to her to see which of us could get to the pile first. The only thing that would stop her from eating it was to feed her zucchini (raw or cook even though she preferred the cooked) several times a week. I also feed tiny bits to my cats twice a week, and that kept her out of their litter boxes. It must make the poop smell really bad because any time that she would smell poop from any of my pets that had eaten the zucchini, she pulled her head back really fast as if to say, "This is the worst stuff I have ever smelled in my entire life!" Whenever she would eat poop when we were out walking, 80% of the time she would end up with diarrhea. She did have IBD, but I don't think this had anything to do with her poop-eating because she was on a high quality diet, and it was something that she had done since she was a puppy.

Jasmine used to try to eat poop (sometimes with success as she is very fast), sometimes, when she was little. She was rather picky about which. As it turned out she is suffering from IBD and that well might have been
why.

Never her own though. She is not doing that any more, perhaps because her digestive system is feeling better now with the IBD
addressed.

She still likes snacking on horse poop sometimes, so does JD; because they spend weekends at a horse farm, there is not much that can be done about it short of keeping them tied up the whole time.

I love how you are so looking out for Pearl's day to day happiness that poop eating is viewed as "Pearl's
joy".
Remind me to keep my face (and hands) far from her when I see you guys for Westminster
2012!

There is a reason we call my dog Hooper the Pooper...no need for a scooper!

My dog used to get into the cat's litter box. He would stay out of it if we were home but if we were out he'd be in it. We put up a baby gate high enough the cats could walk under but not enough room for him to get under.

Well, one of my 3 pugs is a poopaholic. She is discerning, as she will only eat her own. Other than the grossness factor, I really didn't notice it causing her any real health problems, and she enjoys it. I mean really enjoys it. She came to us at 3, and had 2 former homes before that. The first being a backyard breeder, where she was for a year. I am not sure of her history there. She came to us as a dog who had been free fed, and our one pug at the time, ate hers and anyone else's food in the blink of an eye. So Brigitte learned to eat it or lose it. The poop eating came a couple years later though. We have tried to discourage it, especially since recently she and her sister were diagnosed with giardiasis. Now, I basically follow them around the yard with a poop bag, and pick it up right
away.
There is however, those times I may be distracted by one of the other dogs. She takes full advantage of the situation. We cal it a poopertunity. There is nothing quite as amusing as the look of satisfaction on her face when she succeeds at recycling!
