Ok here's the deal.

Except for a few days a month, Roscoe is perfectly fine healthy active dog. Playful and friendly and all that. Eating regular. Pooping twice a day regular. Then usually right around the middle of the month something will change in his personality. I'll notice that he gets sort of lazy and weird. He just sort of lounges around the house and doesn't bark at me to do things. He doesn't eat all his food. When we go for walks, he'll sniff at friggin everything to the point where it's really annoying when we walk around. Everything needs to be sniffed in detail like he's on a sniff mission. And at dog park instead of running around like a goofball, he'll be more interested in wrestling and act like a jerk. Like he's in a bad mood or something. It's nothing too concerning. He seems fine. Just lazy, sniffy, and grumpy at other dogs.

I've seen these symptoms before. Once a month for the last six months. Like clockwork. I know what this means. I know what's coming.....

A major league poop.

Basically one night every month, Roscoe will have an accident in the apartment and poop right by the front door. Usually he's pretty good about letting me know if he really needs to go out--- but when it's major poop night he doesn't bother. He just goes on the floor like an animal.

And the poops are real big piles of half-solid mucky poop. Like sort of carvelish. Usually a two piles. They're surprisingly huge considering he makes regular poops day after day. Both piles are bigger than any normal poop ever is. When I wake up and see what he left me I'm like, 'Hey! Jeez louise! Where'd you store all that friggin poop?!' It's almost as if he has some sort of backup canister in there that needs to be emptied once a month.... in the middle of the night. Then after a day or so he goes totally back to normal.

It's just sort of weird. I wasn't gonna post about this because it's gross-- but it's a really hard thing to google for and I'm curious. I've mentioned it to the vet and they're not really concerned. They're like, 'He seems fine. We can run tests if it gets to be a problem or whatever...' They suggested a dietary supplement called Prozyme which he's been on for months. (I know its sort of unmanly man to talk about your dogs 'dietary supplements' but whatever! I pick up his friggin poop! With my hand in a plastic bag! I'd prefer it to be good poop! Ok? )

I'm not really concerned about whatever major poop night is about because he seems basically ok ...even during that time. Just grumpy and weird. Almost like it's a 'that time of the month' thing... but poopwise. PPS or something. And it seems to be a regular pattern that in a weird way seems healthy. Like some sort of self highcolonic or something...

So I'm posting about it here why?

a. because that's what's happening
b. maybe someone out there has seen this before. (try googling for it. it's like impossible.)

So feel free to write in if you have ideas. Thanks!
