mbc1963 Posted September 16, 2007 Report Share Posted September 16, 2007 So... my dog likes to roll in particular kinds of poop. Deer poop and fox or coyote poop, from what I can deduce. I understand the theories about why he does this, but what makes me curious is that after he rolls, he becomes absolutely, positively INSANE! If he were a human, I'd say he was drunk or high. I mean, this is a 4ish-year-old dog who has moved largely past the goofy play stage, and who rarely gets "silly." But after rolling in poop, he spins circles like a loon - 8 or 10 times - then runs and starts picking up horse poop, which he never does, and charges at me with his old crazy "chase me! chase me!" look. Honestly, it's like he regresses to his first few weeks with me, when he'd been in shelters or kennels for months, and hadn't been able to run free or act crazy. Any theories on what's going on there? I understand that he might be happy from having accomplished a good, stinky roll - but absolutely ecstatically giddy? Fun to watch, anyway!
