No, runny poo is never normal.  If it just began after you started giving her the yogurt, she may have a very sensitive stomach or even a dairy allergy and can not handle the yogurt. What type of yogurt have you been giving her? It should be the plain lowfat unsweetened variety. If that is what you have been giving, then I would cut that out and see if the poo firms up again. If not, perhaps a visit with the vet might be necessary to rule out any health issues.
God Luck with Elyse!

I agree with Lisa, I know someone's boxer had an allergy to dairy.

On another note, I don't think anything will help with the gas!!! Tyson is known to clear the room... :)

I mix Tyson's dinner kibble with yogurt.  He did have the runs at first, but it is definately better.

that was what I just started to do, mixed it and she loved it but oh boy her poos were runny the next day and since..I was wondering if it was just cause it was new to her system and she would stop but I am afraid to give it to her and make her suffer through more.

Welcome to the world of the boxer toxins... lol...  CAUTION - Dangerous odors appear behind boxers without warning! - lol... Chief can clear any room at anytime of the day...  

Worst is at night... his dog bed is next to my side of the bed and he farts right under my nose.... Ouch!...

But I know of a few boxers here in my neighborhood that have dairy allergies and can't any dairy products at all.. or else they get crazy runs. Don't know if that helps but good luck!

At first I was going to say it might have been from the shots, but not at this late date...You may have to find something else to use to rid the "gas" problem, it does sound like she may have an allergy to diary, poor girl..You can help firm her poo up by giving a very small amount of canned pumpkin, not the pie mix tho.I keep a couple cans of it at all times. Maybe like a half a teaspoon...With the leftover pumpkin, put it in small baggies and freeze it and then you can pull it out as you need
