Scoop Less Poop

Today we are participating in the monthly blog hop 

The Scoop That Poop Campaign was created by Sugar the Golden Retriever to bring awareness to the importance of scooping dog poop.  This monthly blog hop is hosted  at Sugar the Golden RetrieverOz the TerrierMy GBGV LifePawsitively PetsThe World According to Garth Riley and The Lazy Pitbull.

There is no theme this month
 we can post about
anything related to scooping poop

so we thought we would tell you how
what you eat 
can affect how much you poop

And how much you poop affects
how much your peeps have to scoop!

There you go Mom

you wanted a sample to show people

I eat twice a day and I poop twice a day

When I came to the PugRanch,
Mom picked out a "premium" puppy/dog food for me. 

As you all know if your dog eats quality food
they should have smaller and firmer poops

I did well on this food and my poops
were "good" and we were all happy 

until I developed allergies

Three months ago Mom changed my food to 
a very limited ingredient diet

Natures Variety Instinct
one protein - duck
one carb - tapioca
one vegetable - peas 
vitamins and omega's

It has really helped my itchies


 as you can see here

My poops are no longer "good"
They are GREAT!

Small and compact, almost like pellets
and the best part for Mom & Dad
very easy to scoop!!!

as opposed to our neighbor dog
(the one who's peeps never scoop)
He is a medium size dog
but his poops are HUGE and not compact 
Mom was going to take a picture for comparison
but she thought that might be weird to be seen taking a picture 
of the neighbor dogs poop

  1. yes, that's a GREATlooking piece of recycled food :o) Since I have a new food, my problems at this front are nearly gone.

  2. BOL..BOL..BOL! Yuppy Puppy, I can just picture your Mommy taking pictures of your neighbor's poop. I means da neighbor dog's poop? BUTT me has a pwoblem at my house. Da neighbors always ride their horses past our house, and we gets horse plops right in front of our driveway. We need a shovel to scoop! :( The neighbors never do! Guess they'd have to carry yard-size trash bags on their daily ride!

  3. Great post! It's so true that what and how much dogs eat TOTALLY impacts their waste output! Thanks for the great example! :)

  4. What great poops! Mine are small and firm too...making for easy scooping. Oh, your mom should have taken a photo of the other dog's poop. My mom does. BOL!
    Thanks for joining us, Pug Kids!

  5. Great looking poo. Scooping the yard is my job. With 3 greyhounds and Parker, plus various greyhound guests, the yard always seems to be a minefield. Stanley's poo is so good, it actually bounces :)

  6. Wow, scooping is so important! Looks like that food is working well for you and I bet it's yummy too! Great poop pix BOL!
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, Pol Comm

  7. We forgot all about this campaign - which we wholeheartedly support - until after we posted. But we added the badge to go in our sidebar.

  12. Scoop that Poop so mom doesn't say HBO words

  13. That is awesome! Your poops do look great if I say so myself. This is only something I think we'll ever hear coming from a true dog lover's mouth! BOL

  14. My mommy scoops my poopys too,, and we have found that someone has been poohing in my yard,, and I think its a bear!
    Your pooh looks perfect, nice and golden and a nice shape too

  15. It is fun to go walkies outside. :)

  16. Scoop or run over it with a lawnmower.

    Aroo to you,

  19. Oh my goodness...TMI, Greta, TMI! Bahaha!

    Glad to hear your, um, poops, are looking good. My Dad said mine are so good sometimes that they bounce when they hit the ground. I think he's just happy when they are easier to pick up in the bag (Since he's my butler, he's the one that has to clean up after me).


  20. Woohoo, way to go! Scoop that healthy poop :-)

  21. Very nice poop pics. Now if only it was "scratch and sniff". Just sayin'. Impawtent message!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  22. WE are glad you found a diet that works so nicely for you, Norbert has grain allergies and before we went grain free we had a BIG problem

  23. We're lucky that none of us have any allergies! Mama always feeds us a good food - Canidae. She says good food makes good poop ...

    Love Zoe, Peyton, Webster, Liberty & Whitney

  24. Glad your feeling better. Your poops look good and thanks to mom for picking them up.
