Nope.  If you think about it it's men who are inside out.

Donnah,
I think that's what neilep said - men are inside out!  I'll buy that!

Inside out.  Upside down. Wrong most of the time.  Just ask my wife! :)

going back to poop colour, The colour of some animals poop depends on what colour there food is. for example when my snake eats a white mouse it poops white, if it eats a brown mouse it poops brown. i wonder if this is the same in humans? I once worked with an autistic kid who ate so much beetroot he peed a pinkey purple colour, or so he told us!

Thats true about the beetroot! Someone was telling me that if you eat lots of pork then your excrement will be yellowy in appearance whereas beef dishes are more likely to darken your stools. I notice curries often lead to the lightening of stools...

Neil, i feel you should conduct a live experiment for us. Tomorrow you should eat nothing but pork, the next day beef and the day after that try some dog food and we'll see where that takes us... ;)

I think it would be more accurate, particularly in your case Richard, to say that curries cause "lightning" stools...

I thought this post deserved re-appraisal, so I'm bringing it back to the top for further discussion...

Any further insights into the origins of white dog turds, and explanations for their apparent demise in latter years, would be gratefully received.

You know...since this thread went into hibernation in July 2004 , I can safely say that I have yet to see another white dog poo  since then or even before, that i can remember !!...I may have to resort to getting the spray paint out !

The last time i saw dog poo was when my dog eat it in the park and that was years ago.

He's  dead now , and no it wasnt the poo that killed it , it was the vet as he put him down :)

anyone up for a proper scientific experiment?

I must admit I thought the colour of poo was down to bile, and that white poo indicated a bile duct blockage. probably wrong, but just another idea to throw into the mix.

didn't Hannibal Lecter have a thing for Billy Rubin?  ;)

I have recently seen white dog poo.  Every time my dog eats dirt, which is often, he has white poop.  Now if you'll excuse me, with all this talk of poop and vomit and what dogs eat I think I'm going to be sick.
