    I have noticed that Muffin's poops always have darker color than Mocha's & Missy's. It's also much softer and stinkier. I feed them the same food, water, and treats.. so I wonder if it's normal for their poops to be so different from each other :confused:, and why?

    All three are current on shots, and had been dewormed.

    No, all three are healthy, and do not have any problem eating, or anything. I treat them exactly the same, which means if one gets to eat one thing, the other will get it, too.

    Muffin's poop always has the dark green to black color, while Mocha & Missy's are yellow to light brown, and I can almost always tell when Muffin poops by the smell it brings to my nose, but I can never tell when Mocha & Missy did :)

    All of my dogs have different poo colors/shapes, and as much as I would hate to admit it, I can tell which dog made the "pile." Babylons are always large and dark, while Aurora's are so small theyre hard to find, and a bit lighter.
    I dont know why either, but I guess thats the way it is?

    Different dogs react to different food...differently.

    I think I know what it might be.Muffin is still a puppy, she should be eating puppy food.Whereas Missy and Mocha should be eating adult food. I just pointed this out because you said that they all ate the same food, when really they shouldn't be.

    I feed them Innova Evo Puppy food. I made a switch from Nutro Ultra when I got Muffin, which was about 1 1/2 months ago. I switched gradually so it did not give them any problems. Mocha & Missy just turned one on Dec 1st, so I basically have three puppies on my hands :)
