The goddamn beagle just puked up dog poop all over the office, the house
I am putting her in the garage so we can clean, someone else is letting her back in

This shall not pass!


One question, why the hell did she eat dog poop?

1. It is not that uncommon for dogs to eat poop.
Dog poop still has protein. Was the food bowl empty?

3. be careful of beagles and food. 1. beagles eat everything including poop
2. beagles will eat till they explode (they dont have an off switch)

21. sounds like a stray MiniPin that spent the night with us years ago
"will eat till they explode (they dont have an off switch)"

ate so much, we thought she was famished from wandering far away from home

we tracked down her owner the next morning via the serial number on her metal vaccination tag -- come to find out she only lived right across the street

5. I fought to keep dogs away from my cat's litter box. They love that high-protein poop. No kidding!
Was that the source? Make sure they can't get to it. Once they've sampled digested feline cuisine, they never lose a taste for it.

I've had dogs who liked to roll in the rumens of dead herbivores when they rotted in the pasture. It's Chanel #5 to the nose of a dog.

Try not to be mad, the stress won't help the behavior. Good luck!

6. Poop has nutrients in it...
I've yet to meet a dog that didn't indulge at one time or another.

7. That's what they do.
Our Dobie would eat anything that wasn't nailed down. Beagles do too.

8. My dog would eat his own poop when he was a puppy.
I was told at the vet that he'd outgrow it. It took longer than I would have liked x(, but he did. :)

A beagle/basset hound mix.

10. Reminds me of when I got my dog
I went to the local Humane Society and made my way to the puppies. The first one I picked out was a beagle, which I took to the room they have set up as a "get to know you" area. The beagle promptly pooped, then ate it. I took him back and picked out a different pup (who I adopted).

14. I really hate to brag but
my dog does not eat poop and he does not puke. Really. He should be cloned.

16. You need to rule-out an obstruction.
If they can't poop out one end it could come out the other and it is an emergency.
