As promised from last week, we are answering this letter:
Dear Sasha- I has a bit of an embarrassing problem...I eats my own poo :( I just can't stops myself. Mommy and daddy get so mad at me and scold me and threaten to withholds treats from me. I don't wants them to be angers at me, but to me, its recycling - I just doin' MY part to helps the vironment...ok, thats a fib - I just has to eat anything and everything, rusty nails, bark off the tree, etc. How can I learn to lay off the poo? I think my folks would be most happy if I did that. Arrooooo to you and Charlie. just sign me Bad Breath Beagle
Dear Bad Breath Beagle,
Poo addiction is a tough one. I even had to call in a favor from the Queen Of The Poo Eating Dachshund Club (AKA-Miss Peewee with computer help from her human Miss Suz). There is a bad rumor going around amongst the humans that Poo eating is a disorder due to a vitamin deficiency. But, we dogs know the truth. It is an eating disorder that you think you are hungry all the time. When, treats or food is gone, you look for our own source of snacking. Similar to those humans that must have snack foods right after eating a big meal. Sometimes, it is grass, bugs, worms, sticks, and even your own poo. You shouldn't be ashamed. You just need to have your human hide good treats around the house and yard. (I do mean hide. Cause half the fun of poo eating is hunting the tootsie rolls down. Or so I have heard.) There is some examples of some yummy treats in the treasury pic at that the end of this post. (Hint hint to the humans out there.) The key is to let your human hide them when you aren't looking. That way you have to use your beagle nose to find them. Good luck, and if this doesn't work then call your local PEA (Poo Eaters Anonymous) for a 12 paw step program.
Your Friend In Fur,
Next Sunday we will be answering this letter and hopefully a few more (hint hint):
