Emma & I go to my Mom's house every weekend. Mom has learned she needs to clean the litter box before Emma comes over. (What is it with dogs & cat poo?!) Last weekend we had been there for a while & Emma sits on my Mom's lap. I hear her say "What is in your mouth?" "Yeeeww!" & then my brother laughing hysterically. Well apparently one of the cats went after we got there & Emma just had to have a taste. In the may lay the poo ended up on the floor & Emma had no idea what the hubbub was about. After the clean up I told Mom I would have to post the story here.
Emma has never been a big barker until my lovely brother /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif taught her to bark for food. Whenever anyone eats at Mom’s house Emma will bark at them until she gets something. I don’t let her do it to me, but at Mom’s she will try. Of course the brother thinks it is funny (until it gets on his nerves) & mom thinks she is cute. :rolleyes: I am trying to get both of they to make Emma sit quietly before she is fed, but w/ a Grandma & the favorite Uncle I have little chance of it happening when I’m not around.
:freak:

I know, Caesar has a thing for cat poo too. We had to move Sox's litter box up higher so that Caesar couldn't get into it. For him it's like he hit the jackpot of snack time. :pukey:

Our last beagle, Spotty, couldnt resist the temptation when a guest changed his babies nappy. There was a yell from the guests and Spotty ran out of the room with a mouth full of baby poo.

We had this problem as well, until my husband came up with a brilliant idea. We keep the litter box downstairs, in the second bathroom, as it rarely gets used. He made a "gate" with a hole big enough for the cats to fit but to small for the dogs. They can only fit their heads through the opening. No more taking kitty poo. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

Suzy would always get snacks until mom got worried that precious wasnt having bowl movements. I caught suzy and told mom so now we have a little gate to get into the bathroom. The only problem is, I have a bruise on my leg because at night I always forget its there! She also likes to eat the boys BM. I think she likes to keep me busy by making me pick it up everyday. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif

The only time Priss uses a litterbox for poo is if she absolutely can't hold it when she's shut in the garage at night. Our dogs are so bad about kitty goodies, that they go around sniffing for where Priss has used the bathroom outside. :pukey:

I picked up a little book at the library called Why Do Dogs Drink Out Of The Toilet? It has answers to a lot of dog behavior questions, and this is one of them--why do dogs snack from the cat box? The author (a vet who's on TV) says that they get extra protein from Kitty Krunchies, and suggests changing to a covered litter box.

Yea, Emma, nicknamed "the Speed Demon" is now among the millions of "dukey" eating Beagles.

Why they do it? Probably enticed by aroma. Bama, our first Beag used to chow down so often on his own pile, we had to pick up after him.

One of weird things about our buddies.
