    Why do the dogs only do it when my OH is away?? Hugo just got a poo stuck on the way out, as they do. Before I could grab a poo bag to help him out he completely panicked, ran around the garden screaming and running through and rolling in (by accident) the poo he'd already done! Arrrrrgh! I had to hold him by the collar and talk to him calmly while he finished off - I felt like a friggin midwife with a nervouse new mum.

    His first experience of bath time has not been as positive as I would have liked. :-( Very difficult to click and treat a poo-covered pup while trying to wash him and stop yourself and everything joining him in the poo-covered state. Blimey.

    Such fun.

    Who'd have them? Seriously.

    Good job I love them both.

    Can you tell me more about this please?

    I have never encountered stuck poo in the manner I think you describe. Many years ago I experienced helping a long haired collie that was in the middle of a poo crisis due to poor grooming - matted fur over his bum was acting as a messy and effective shield stopping the poo come out.

    That was an afternoon I will not forget even though almost 30 years ago.

    Is the dog's diet such that stool does not pass normally?

    He's a puppy, he's half spaniel, he eats cr*p from the floor and stuff, it happens. He's probably ingested a bit of string from a toy or something and just had a bit of a dangler as a result - string in string out.

    His diet is fine, he eats decent kibble at the moment, most stools are fine -very good infact, nice Bristol type 4s. Just this one the bit on the outside was more attached to the bit on the inside then it should have been. And I think he stopped pushing when he panicked which made it worse! :eek:

    Yes I have encountered this - a bandage discarded by someone in the village, not pleasant.

    LOL @ Dangleberry

    I've encountered this, somehow every now and then Donnie somehow ends up swallowing my hair which results in a dangleberry...

    dangleberrys i can deal with its the runny messy ones that run down the long fur that cause probs!
    Or dangleberrys with grass in them, grizz refuses to walk when he has one which is great if you have already used your poo bags, tissues etc... i have resorted to sticking a sanitary towel to my hand to grad with!! worked surprisingly well, did get a dodgy look from another walker though lol.

    Think yourself lucky your short haired dogs arent lick crazy and spend alot of their time eating eating cat/dog/person hair!:rolleyes:
    Heidi is so used to dangleberries she just turns around and presents her bottom for poop removal!!:rolleyes: (although she does let out an impressive squeel if said klingon is longer then she thought!!)

    Roxy had a poo caught so decided to run her bum on the ground to get it off.

    Only she say right in the poo she had already had & rubbed it all in to her fluffy trousers :eek:

    I made her then go swimming to wash herself off. My car is filthy enough without alos being covered in poo!!
