Lilie Oh wait...I missed that she was a 3 1/2 month old pup. I don't think it's the coyote trail thing. Too young. Although that would have been an interesting thought.

Actually the dog has your boyfriend's number 2 big time.

DellaWrangler Hehe, a part of me did find the first incident pretty funny (other than the scrubbing and bleaching bit.) Maybe she picked up on that, which is why she did it again?

[I was ambivalent about the guest -- a friend of my brother's. As a side note, we introduced them and she seemed fine, but a little while later disappeared (which generally spells trouble -- normally she's superglued to me, so if I can't see her, she's up to something.) She had made her way into his room, had him "trapped" in the corner and was growling. The guy was legitimately scared of a 3-and-a half month old pup So with him, it could have very well been a "warning poop," like you guys described with the coyotes.]

Pretty sure my dog's an evil genius. Now, if I can only persuade her to use her powers for good

Freddy Interesting topic....

Sorry to hear about the shoes. Recently my son was in intensive care for 11 days. My wife stayed at the hospital with him every night. After 9 or 10 days of being left alone during the day and only me at night, my 5yr male lifted his leg on our comforter in the bedroom. He never marks or has accidents in the house and even when young they were always very close to the door.

Lilie I could just see the coyotes, " he di'ent!"

blackshep I think you could be right Lilie. My dog and the coyotes seemed to be having a 'turf war' last summer, each trying to out-poop one another

One time the coyote pooped right outside my back door off the edge of the patio :/

Lilie We have an animal trail in the very back end of our pasture. You can see it, it's an acutal path. It's where the wild critters cut across our property to get to the neighbor's pond. We have seen coyotes cut across.

Every time I take the dogs out for a run, both my male dogs will wait till they get to that trail, sniff around and poop on the trail. It is as if they are leaving a message for the yotes that they know the yotes have been by, but this property belongs to them.

I'm curious if your dog is doing something simular. If you always stick to a schedule, then you have a guest, the 'norm' is changed. Your dog is saying, "I know you are here and want you to remember I am here too. I'm watching you."

vprasad OMG! I'm literally ROFLing hahaha! GSDs (all dogs) are highly sensitive to the moods of their owners. Maybe you don't like the guests that much? I'm sorry but I couldn't think of any other reasons . Hope you're not offended.

We had a guest last week and she did not take to him (despite being properly introduced), so we would put her in the yard, whenever he was out and about in the house. Sooo, three mornings in a row, Della pooped on the floor, right outside his door. Fortunately, I managed to clean it, before he stepped in it.

Also, her and the boyfriend are a bit jealous of each other, so yesterday, she somehow managed to open the doggy gate, made her way upstairs, and pooped in his shoes. Twice.

Why the heck is she doing it and how do I get her to stop? (I'm guessing it's out of spite, but if so, it's counterproductive, since I'm the one that ends up having to clean it

No suggestions but man is this funny!!!! We had a cat...if her litter was not cleaned out before 5:00am...she would poop in the center of the washing machine lid...I always started laundry first thing, so her pile-o-crap was the first thing that greeted me....if I overslept and slacked on my chore for her majesty....!

Oh my. That's the funniest thing I have read in a while. I'm not laughing at you but at the situation and GSD's amusing behavior generally.

German shepherds continually amaze me with their intelligence. This dog has you, your guest's and your boyfriend's numbers big time. They can be quite the manipulators.
