Think.. ThinkOne of the multitude of things that I do on a monthly basis is the Daycare newsletter for Mahogany Ridge. Turns out it's harder to fill a page than you would imagine. So, Theresa hands LB a handwritten note with the stuff for the newsletter this month.. oh incidentally.. I'm late working on it. Last night I'm looking at my notes and there is a phrase "Winter and Poopsicles". Um... I'm guessing she wants me to talk about dogs eating more poo in the winter cuz it's crunchy or something? My dogs don't eat poo. (With one exception when Qay was on antibiotics... one incident.. and that was it) I'm stumped... do dogs eat more poo in the winter? I mean I do a "Dear Theresa" article... maybe I could put a bit in about picking up after your dog.. and don't bother with the hot sauce foolishness because you'll only teach them to eat it before you get to it and if you are going to wander around with a bottle of tabasco anyway, you might as well just pick it up....

  1. I often wonder what that stuff that is supposedly safe is doing to their intestines… I’ve heard that feeding pineapple helps which would make sense because of the enzymes in pineapple.. this is of course assuming that the poo eating is not a habit but an imbalance in the intestines…

    Considering that Qay’s one and only poo eating incident was when she was on antibiotics which totally screw up the bugs in your gut, it does make me wonder what a probiotic supplement would do to help.


  2. I have two poopsicle eaters! GAG!!! it doesnt matter what time of year it is, if they get the hankerin’ – they’ll eat it. I think they must stand there and wait for it to come out of the “softserve” machine.. because no matter how much i clean up after them.. they always seem to find a happy helping.

    Remind me again why I have dogs….
