    His nose will get blacker with time. Most bulldogs noses turn completely black, but ours still has a pink spot even after 2 1/2 years. He should keep some of the spots around his nose, though, but no guarantees!

    Good heavens he is a cutie! That puppy energy can be hard to handle and hard to redirect. He will go through phases, but if you want to keep him as a part of your family there isn't anything that the people here can't help you get through.

    Hi, my name is Monica and I have 2 EB siblings, they are almost a year old, and their names are Bulldozer and Blossom. I had to switch my guys food 4 times before I found a food that both of them tolerated. We went from Royal Canin from the breeder to Go Natural, but it turned out the food was too good, so too rich for their systems, they got soft serve poops, and it turns out that Blossom is allergic to chicken, salmon, and sensitive to grains, and maybe corn? After they were on the Go, Dozer started to eat his poops, and the vet said it was because the food was too rich, and maybe going right through him, so he wasn't digesting it properly, and because it had so many fruits in it, it made it tasty to him. YUK. Lol, I switched them back to the Royal Canin, because they did well on it, I just knew it wasn't the best food, then I researched some more, and switched to Fromms Puppy Gold, and Dozer was okay on this, and stopped eating his poops, Whew, but Blossom being allergic to chicken didn't tolerate it, so we switched to the Fromms Beef Frittata, when they were 7 months old. Both have been on this food for 5 months and are doing extremely well on it, regular, firm but soft poops, and No reactions for Blossom. The other thing is that maybe he needs to go out in the middle of the night , when I was potty training my guys, I had them on a schedule of every hour in the beginning, then every two hours, and then increased the time every week or so, so they would learn to hold, their last walk in the evening was at 11 or 11:30pm, and their first walk was at 6:00 am, so the time between the evening to the morning was too long to hold. I would set my cell phone alarm for 2 am, and take them out, and then my regular alarm clock for 6 am to go out in the morning. I only had to do this until they were 5 months old, and then they were fully trained and able to hold all night, and could hold 5 or 6 hours during the day. It is a little tiring having to wake up in the middle of the night, but just like a baby it is a temporary thing and only lasted for 5 months for us. I also heard the same thing about the pineapple in the food to make the poops taste bad to the dog, but have no experience with this, but always worth a try to see if it works for you. Good luck , and I hope Henry stops eating poop burgers soon. Lol. Keep us posted on how he's doing and if you find something that works.

    I had a young pup that did this once too. I don't think it was so much that they were hiding their poop and Pee, but more that they did not want it in their crate. Once the accidents quit happening so did the poop and P eating. This one also drank his pee so don't feel bad lol

    Bacon did the same thing, if you just add pumpkin to it he will stop, for some reason when it passes through them it makes the poop no longer appetizing.

Here are a couple more pictures of him.

    His nose cracks me up! Do you think it will turn all black in time, or is he going to keep those spots? I don't know much about this breed. I am learning every day. All I know is, he is a real fire cracker! Full of energy, so polar opposite our mastiff

    He is precious! Thank you for fostering him! The poo eating can be a number of reasons, but I would start with making sure he gets a potty break at night... puppies can only hold it for 1 hour more than months they are old. So, if he is 3 months old.. he can hold for four hours. Some say this is only true for the bladder, but I would try it for poo too and see if it eliminates the issue

    Well, I got up in the middle of the night to let him out. He had no poop to eat in the morning But, I spent over an hour playing with him in the middle of the night and didn't get all my sleep. I was pooped! at work! LOL! I think we will keep this schedule and see how it goes. Thanks everyone for the advice. I also picked up a can of real pumpkin on my way home and will add a bit to his food to see how that goes.

    to EBN!!!! There's a lot of great people here and a lot of great information.
    It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men that have died (in battle). Rather we should thank God that such men have lived.
