Sparky is my poop eater. This morning it was sleeting so they both refused to walk in their first walk (just pee'd). After breakfast, Sparky decided the rug was a nice place to poop and proceeded to eat the evidence.

Then, his strategy is to snack on the last one while I'm busy cleaning up the rest. Most of the time I'm able to prevent it, but he does this regularly. He clearly has a strategy around the whole thing.
Lucky doesn't do this, but Sparky is a puppy mill rescue and I understand this is pretty common behavior with mill rescues since they are so underfed and need to compete for food.
