Walking while pooping - genetic trait?
Okay, this is an odd question but I thought that those of you who have bred various litters may have an answer for me.
My older GSD, Trick, has always walked forward as she poops. She squats and then starts moving forward, dropping poop as she goes. None of my other dogs have ever done this.
However, Trick's half-brother Dax (who belonged to my parents) had the same exact trait. He ALWAYS walked forward while pooping.
So is this genetic? Does it have something to do with structure? Or is it just coincidence that two related dogs do it?
It's kind of an irritating habit as you have to pick up poop over an area that is sometimes 10-15 feet long .. *L*
