>>Ah darn, wish mine would go outside his dog house. Nope, he feels it necessary to poop and pee inside with the hay and bury himself in it! Ewwww....

Mine does that about 9 months out of the year. I am now so much more physically fit than I was 5 years ago when she got here.. because I muck out her house all the time LOL.
Right now we're in the wonderful part of the year where she poops outdoors every day. I don't feed her, she has a half acre of Bermuda grass with lots of dandelions & other greens to graze on.
She's 70lbs & poops daily.. but later towards winter she won't do that.
She'll eat less so she'll poop less, then she starts grazing more but not a lot more in March. From March through July she always poops inside her house.
I've noticed that her main eating season with daily pooping outside starts in August & runs through most of Nov.
It's got to be the more mild temps that start to happen at the end of Aug.
Then it'll get cold & she'll slow down & we start this all over again.
