Ask PoopReport: Why Does My Dog Come With Me?
Why does my dog always want to sit next to me in the bathroom when I shit?
We got a female Sheltie puppy six months ago. This is the first time in my

bark until I let her in. She will sit there and rest her body against my leg
and demand I pet her as I drop my loaf. As soon as I am done shitting and
wiping, I stand to flush and she runs to the door, knowing that "we" are
Why does this dog want to "help me shit"? Do other dogs do this? Does the
dog enjoy the smell of my dung?
I will admit I enjoy the company -- I see it as quality time between my pet
and I -- and it sure beats reading the newspaper alone.
