I know this probably sounds like a stupid question, but can someone tell me why dog poop smells? I know all poop smells (including human's), but I've noticed that the intensity of my pug's poop varies greatly from day to day,and even poop to poop.
I get the feeling that certain treats contribute to the smell, but I have still failed to recognize a pattern.
One that I am certain of, however, is that the softer his poop is, the more it sticks.
OK poop experts, here's your opportunity to shine ;)
