Way cute doggie. Excuse me, I must go wash out my brain now. The visuals are making me zarf.

Coprophagics of the world UNITE!!!!

 |  May 28, 2008 at 01:32 PM

AHHHGGG look at that face!!

 |  May 28, 2008 at 01:34 PM


 |  May 28, 2008 at 01:35 PM

oh jeez. She must be a puppy. It happens. Or should I say sh** happens? I don't know what's worse...puppy eating owns or puppy digging in cat box. ick.

 |  May 28, 2008 at 01:36 PM

Hopefully this public shaming will encourage poor Taffy to reconsider her vices.

 |  May 28, 2008 at 01:37 PM

Are the meetings limited to dogs' addiction to their own poop? I know of a dog with an acquired taste for poop of the feline variety.

 |  May 28, 2008 at 01:42 PM

she looks so sweet and gentle, i refuse to believe it! (puts on rose-tinted glasses)

Ewww. Taffy doesn't get to kiss my face.

 |  May 28, 2008 at 01:43 PM

This totally cracks me up.
By the way, watched one of those bbc dog shows where the lady comes in and reforms bad dogs - she fed the dog pinneapple to stop the dog from eating his poop. Must taste bad on the other end.

Aw, poor puppy. Don't worry! This is easily fixed. Just ask Mommy/Daddy to add a few tablespoons of canned pumpkin to your food, which will make the poo taste bad. Also, more walkies please.

 |  May 28, 2008 at 01:46 PM

My doggie used to do this until I started sprinkling cayenne pepper on his poo. He didn't like the spice!

 |  May 28, 2008 at 01:47 PM

lol, she is adorable!
I want to beep her nose!

 |  May 28, 2008 at 01:50 PM

oh jeez. She must be a puppy. It happens. Or should I say sh** happens? I don't know what's worse...puppy eating owns or puppy digging in cat box. ick.
My dog eats my bunny, ferret and cat poo. And my friends dogs eat their own poop too.

if you take this sweet doggie to the vet they'll give you something to sprinkle on the food to stop this - don't do that.

Meat tenderizer is the exact same stuff as the vet stuff and works just as well.

What a sweet pretty puppy - I HATE that it's being humiliated here. :( :( :(

 |  May 28, 2008 at 01:52 PM

lol oh my god why did i have to read that right as soon as the phone rang at work.. do you have any idea how hard it is to force back a laugh like that!!! I still cant stop laughing.. the look on that puppy's face.. killer...

 |  May 28, 2008 at 01:53 PM

OMG!!! I totally LOL at this! And my dogs don't eat their own, but rather fancy what we call kitty tootsie rolls (the visual: how you are eating a tootsie roll - chewy, right?... now how a dog looks eating cat poo)

 |  May 28, 2008 at 01:54 PM

OH and ermine_violin... how can a dog be "humiliated" if it cant even READ!!!!!

 |  May 28, 2008 at 01:54 PM

This picture is hilarious! And it's not like the dog can read, so she has no idea she's being "humiliated." She thinks she's a star!

 |  May 28, 2008 at 01:55 PM

you go Katiedid, zackly what i was thinkin.
although... that is quite the hoo-miliated look on her face.
or is that just guilt cuz she ate it OFF THE FLOOR INSIDE THE HOUSE!.

 |  May 28, 2008 at 02:02 PM

A dog would require shame to be humiliated (see exhibit a: eating own poop).

Tee hee, poopy puppy!! XD

 |  May 28, 2008 at 02:12 PM

That's pretty hilarious. I KNEW I was right not to let dogs lick my face.

 |  May 28, 2008 at 02:23 PM

"Ewwwww... blechhhh... dog lips, I've been kissed by dog lips! Quick, boil some water!"

We should give her credit for confessing! What a pretty face! I operate a rehab house for poop-eating puppays. Drop by aneetime, puppay! You can undo it, we can halp!

 |  May 28, 2008 at 02:41 PM

TMI man, TMI.....

 |  May 28, 2008 at 02:44 PM

Confessions of a puppeh

 |  May 28, 2008 at 02:49 PM

OK, funny as H3LL!
Made my afternoon! Love the public "humiliation"! If only it could really work, it won't and that's why it's funny!

awww poor pup's gotta check into puppoop rehab

 |  May 28, 2008 at 02:50 PM

that's alright, mate, better your own than someone else's

 |  May 28, 2008 at 02:52 PM

Uh... I'm voting for non-cuteness on this one.

 |  May 28, 2008 at 02:54 PM

*raises hand* Yes, well, my dog Nicky also enjoys a piquant tidbit from the litter box.

Probably thinks he's "helpingsk"!!

 |  May 28, 2008 at 03:03 PM

that pup looks very sorry... don't punish by making a sign. Poor puppy.

 |  May 28, 2008 at 03:07 PM

My Mugsy eats his own too. No amount of shaming will get him to stop- we've tried. I think I'm going to try the pineapple, though- thanks for the suggestions, all.

Oh, and that's exactly the look he gets when you tell him how bad he is for doing that. "I know, don't you think I know? I just can't help myself!" he seems to say.

 |  May 28, 2008 at 03:26 PM

The WORST is when my dog eats his poo when he's crated, and then barfs it back up, usually after I get home. Barf and poo together, worse than either one separate. Ick.

 |  May 28, 2008 at 03:42 PM

No thanks on the visuals - I will take your word for it. But this is one of the reason why, as much as I squee at adorable doggies, I own and choose to share my living space with kitties.

 |  May 28, 2008 at 03:47 PM

It's even worse when the doggie eats the kitty crunchers from the litter box and then wants to lick the people faces.

kitty crunchers..hehe

 |  May 28, 2008 at 03:54 PM

I agree with you100% Mandi.

Awwwwww jeez guys....I JUST popped a tootsie roll in my mouf as I saw this. At least the puppeh is adorable as heck.

 |  May 28, 2008 at 04:42 PM

I am printing this off, in color, and taping it to my office door and closing myself in. I want to see how long I can be left alone. If it works, I'll let ya know.

 |  May 28, 2008 at 04:55 PM

And this is exactly why one shouldn't kiss a dog on the lips (or any other portion of its anatomy). Blech!

 |  May 28, 2008 at 05:03 PM

I am a novice animal empath (why yes, in California, how did you know?) and I am the first to admit how ridiculous that sounds. But here is my take: that sweet dog is scared that those poops will get her into trouble. She is very submissive, yes? Somewhere she got it into her head that she'll be punished for them. I suggest many daily leash walks (you'll figure out her poo schedule pretty fast), and when she does her business, praise her calmly, and praise her doubly as you pull her away from her leavings. If you don't live in the country and have to pick up after her, make sure to behave quite unemotionally about it. If she happens upon her own or another dog's droppings in your walks, allow an investigative sniff, but pull her away early and praise her for leaving that sh*t alone.

And the photo is hilarious, btw.

Grain of salt, please
 |  May 28, 2008 at 05:07 PM

Should also be in "Cute or Sad" category. :( Awwwwwww, sad face!

 |  May 28, 2008 at 05:11 PM

It's called coprophagia. And Grain of Salt had an excellent suggestion. If you don't give them time to eat it, they can't eat it. Walk her so she doesn't poo unsupervised, and pick it up promptly.

 |  May 28, 2008 at 05:13 PM

PS That little face is darn-near irresistible-- and well, it would have to be, wouldn't it? :Þ

 |  May 28, 2008 at 05:20 PM

She looks pitiful...breaks my heart. :(

 |  May 28, 2008 at 05:44 PM

"Hi, my name is Growlypants, I too am a poopaholic."

"Hi, Growlypants."

(look how penitent he is)

It's weird. His littermate brother Tank eats dirt, but not poop.
