    Yes there's something wrong with him, he's a dog & dogs are disgusting! Including all 10 of mine.
    Given the chance they'll all eat poop. Think about that the next time ol' Fido's licking your face.

    He's just being a dog. I don't get why they do it either. My outside dogs think new calf poo is a special treat during calving season.... [​IMG] My daughter's dog loves to lick guinea poo and roll in it when they come to visit.

    Yup, my dog loves poo too. Chicken poo, cat poo, rabbit poo, earthworm poo, mystery poo; all taste yummy to her.
    We don't let her lick our faces, if we can help it [​IMG]
    She's a dog; dogs love stinky stuff!!!
    Ours gets fed very well also, but there is something about that poo.

    My mostly white and brown JRT has mastered the art of rolling in disgusting noxious materials. She not particular, just as long as it smells disgusting.

    Mine eats her dog food when there is no poo.
    Seriously.
    Shes a good dog, but still a poo-eater.
