I am curious about dogs that do that. Do your dogs eat a lot of real bones? Do they poop white? I watched a documentary on hyenas and the calcium that they got from eating bones left their stools white and other animals ate them. I give buckshot a lot of bones and he does not eat poo.

Its "normal" for dogs to eat other dogs poopsickle.... and those of other animals, I read it in a book, but I wouldn't be able to tell you which one if my life depended on it... :/ It also stated that you should only worry of they eat their own.

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

There are many reasons why a dog eats thier own stuff;

1) Bad habit
2) Lacking something in thier diet
3) Feel guilty for leaving a mess and want to clean it up.

My vet explained too me that if Sasha starts to eat her own mess, to start putting kian ( spelt wrong) pepper on it. If that does not work give them green mint. The combination of the peper and mint for some reason stops the issue right away.

ick. Our backyard has been like an ice rink the past few days (it's finally starting to thaw) and Jager was using a frozen poop like a hockey puck, batting it around to watch it go sliding. He's always trying to shove his head in the litterbox too.
