Lumps of yellow sponge in poo (sorry)

Anyone come across this? My 4 year old beagle did an interesting couple of poos this weekend; I assumed he'd eaten a yellow sponge type ball, as there were lumps of firm yellow sponge in it. But we haven't got a yellow sponge ball and I'd have noticed if he'd picked one up on walks. Have had a quick Google which mostly talks about yellow mucus in poo; this was too firm to be mucus? Looked exactly like yellow foam tennis ball. He does have problems with anal glands (they stunk last night and he seemed a bit uncomfortable). Generally seems v healthy. Any thoughts?

Ball thrown in from next door? Foam from the sofa etc? I've got young labs and they eat everything so I'm used to unusual things emerging. Odd with an older dog though.

No idea but my dog often has a variety of non organic waste material in his poo. God knows what he eats when my back is turned hmm

Yes it's often quite interesting, finding what he's eaten once it gets thru (birdseed, sweetcorn cobs from compost, carrots seem hard to digest). It did look exactly like yellow sponge ball, but it's the not the first time I've seen it in his poo and there was a small bloody streak too, tho it wasn't loose. Probably to do with anal glands blockage or something; no smell quite like it.

Could he have got hold of a dishwashing type sponge? mine likes a bit of that smile

Hmm. Need to fess up. Long walk by river as usual tonight. ...lo and behold, random bits of yellow sponge ball here and there. Obviously didn't notice him eating it the other night!

My DH called me once to examine DDogs poo as it had a large lump of something bright purple in it. Turns out it was the stuffing of one of his toys smile

Dog had poo covered blue string from a tug of war toy coming out his rear, unfortunately it was rather long and needed some help out mid walk <vom>

This could be a new, entertaining thread - "strangest things found in your dog's poo." Blue string, nice. My beagle loves DS2's soaked pull ups (he has epilepsy and is incontinent at night) - dog poo full of urine- soaked crystals from the pull ups.

Ddog poo'd out a completely undamaged pair of yellow foam earplugs that dh had left out (and hadn't noticed were missing).
Funnily enough dh declined my offer of washing them for him ...

Ooh yes earplugs! My dog likes the silicone ones. .a whole box at a time. They come out exactly the same as they went in.
