raw poop - what does it look like?

You have heard that it turns white and crumbly and disintegrates by itself, not much to pick up or fill up garbages with... well, see for yourself: this is what "raw poop" looks like after a few weeks (dakotah "made" this in the deserted field not too long ago):

ps: this is his ONE poop of the day, for a 130 lbs dog, not too bad eh? it fits in the palm of my hand!

Hey, by the way... thats something you didnt warn me about lol
I tried picking it up the other day ( the ones that we're "left behind" ) I looked like a fool... litterally would turn to dust as soon as the shovel hit it.
Note to self... next winter stay on top of pooper scooping

lol, when it would "blow into dust" I thought to myself... "Self... perhaps go and get the shop vac"
I just walked around kicking the turds... yards all clean now!

Usually Roscos turn within a day or two.

ROFL @ "kick the turd"

Totally ironic that this thread is up. The other day I went to take Ben out for a poop, and all but one tiny little bit was not the same as his usual stools. I mean it was a log, but it was light in color, and turned to powder when I tried to pick it up.

I was totally like . I didn't know that happened.

It's funny how good food really does make a difference though. Ben's 55 pounds, and sometimes I wonder if he just pooped or if it's the cat next door. After a year of this, you'd think I'd be used to it by now, but every time he poops, I can't help but think there's more to come out. One of these days I'm sure he's going to surprise me with a 5 lbs turd. lol
