Grover’s Mailbox

mailboxLets take a look and see what burning questions you have for me this time.

Dear Grover,

What’s up? I have been wanting to ask someone this for a while, but was too embarrassed to ask until now. So here goes, I like to eat poop. My human finds this disgusting and I get embarrassed when he makes that face and tells me to stop. How do I get over this, I really like poop.

Thanks for your help,



Dear Cooper,

Tell your human to get over it. Dogs have evolved from scavengers and there is lots of protein in poop. Granted it is an acquired taste. Humans should understand that, look at some of the disgusting things they eat like cottage cheese and Spam. My advice to you is to eat it when humans aren’t watching, you should be able to enjoy your poop in peace.

 Good Luck,



Dear Grover,

My dog Daisy likes to sit in front of the mirror and stare at her reflection. The problem is, she doesn’t realize it is her own reflection and begins to growl and bark at what she thinks is another dog. It’s driving both of us crazy. She acts like she has seen a ghost. What should I do?

Best Regards,

Sherman G.


Dear Sherman,

Move the mirror.

    Dear Grover, Every dog that has been in my life has had the same reaction to eating disgusting things dead animals, cat poop/horse poop,raccoon poop, deer poop, rugs, frogs, etc..It doesn’t make you any less of a dedicated, loving, intelligent doggie. don’t stress the small stuff. Connie
