Default What is this that my dogs keep eating?

We have these trees behind our fence line (on the neighbors lot) and I guess they are dropping the little pellets pictured. I have no idea if thats true or not, but I have a lot in my yard, and my dogs yearn for them like its doggie crack. Any clue? I assume its not bad for them, they havent seemed any different

If the trees are dropping those pellets, they may be Bradford pears.

It does look like rabbit poop to me.

If you find them in little piles, it may be rabbit scat, although a little light colored for our bunnies. If they are scattered all over, it's something else.

Break them up. If they are rabbit poop they will be mostly fiber. I've never seen anything like that come off a tree except coconuts and those have a shell over the part that looks like that (and are much bigger).

My cousin told my brother they were "smart pills." Neither of them benefitted from the experience...

Yep, a rabbit pellet.

Our dog loves to chow down on the horse poop in the pastures. Go figure...

Many dogs are coprophiliacs.

I had a jerk russel terrorist that had an affinity for cat crap clad in kitty litter.

Now my daughter has a maltese that prefers her own after being sun baked for a day or two on the lawn.

We have a rabbit--neither dog likes those pellets. The cleanest poop on earth.

Go figure. Dogs are nasty.

Yup. Our dog would grab the cat poop out of the box. It looked like a snowcap tootsie roll when she carried it around.

I don't know which is worse. Your dog eating them or you playing with one. I'll give you $5 if you try one.
