Steaming Mad!!!

I am so over Jillee and Betzie eating POOP . It makes me sooo mad at them. I was yelling at them and trying to grab them. I put Betzie in the house only for her to sneak out through little opening of the door before it shut. Jillee goes away from it then when I go to the scrooper makes a mad dash at it. I stepped in it as well. I am soooo over this...did I mention that yet. These are the times when I think what did I get myself into. I love them but at times they really try my patience. Right now they are in there crates. Betzie is barking at me and Jillee is just laying there. She knows what she did. Oh now I will go and get them out. Sorry for the long post!!

I KNOW the feeling! Just when I thought we were getting through this, Shamouti started up again! He actually pooed on the edge of the porch today and then turned around and was eating it. I don't get mad really just makes everything worse. Try not to get frustrated and take it a step at a time. I walked him inside, brushed his teeth, shampooed his mouth (the outside, not the inside LOL) and mentally started over. Next time we go out to potty he'll have to be on a leash, so I can pull him away from it. It's a never ending battle it seems! Just when I though it was over, here we go again!

Scrub 'em up and love 'em up! You KNOW you wanna!

Megan, Nigel was really bad about this and then Simon started. They were getting 3/4 cup of food a day and I increased it to one cup and it really made a difference. I think they were just hungry. I can't imagine being that hungry, but then again I'm not a dog and dogs do gross things. I also don't free feed, they get 1/2 cup in the am and pm. Hopefully it keeps their bellies full.

Peace, Love & Havanese

Ugh...that is so frustrating. Cricket doesn't eat dog poop, but man does she love cat crunchies.

We just got back from a walk, and my Poodle ate ANOTHER dogs poop! It was not hard, and I couldn't get him to drop it before he swallowed it all! I usually dig things out of his mouth if he wont drop it, but I wasn't about to dig poop out of his mouth with nothing to clean my hands with. I was trying to get some of my poop bags out of my pocket in time to use that over my hand but it was too late.

Meghan have you tried adding things like pineapple chunks or juice or maybe meat tenderizer to their food? Many people have been successful with that. With Kubrick I am just very firm and he knows that his poop is MINE and not HIS. I know that sounds weird, but making claim over his poop really did work with him.

I can sympathize- Cocotini is also a poop eater. Yuck!!! I once caught her trying to eat it as it was coming out of Mindy's "behind"!! I had to laugh at that one because Mindy was trying to get away from her and Cocotini was practically glued to her butt. Too funny. I try to be vigilant, but if she disappears and is very quiet- I know what she is up to. She knows she is not supposed to do it so she gets sneaky. I know with her it is not a hunger issue as she will leave her food sometimes (and it may be chicken or something else she likes alot) and turn around and try to eat poop. All I do at this point is tell her "no" and wash her mouth and brush her teeth and hope she will eventually outgrow it. I've tried some of the remedies suggested, changed her food (which seemed to help for awhile), and now I don't know what else to do, so if you come up with something that works-please let me know!!

Well we are all done with her bath and teethe brushing. She is soo much easier to bathe without all that hair. I like her cut down short. Betzie will be getting her bath this weekend as well. She needs one. She had her staples removed and she is all better now.
