Blood in stool

After our evening walk tonight I noticed a blood smear on Gerties so I went and checked her poop and sure enough there was blood in it.  She is 8 eyars old and this is the first time this has happenned - what would cause this?  I bagged the poop to bring to the vet tomorrow but i am nervous and hoping someone might have an idea of what caused this.

Wish I knew what to say

I hope everything is ok. My dog had that problem but it was food related. Gertie will be in my prayers.

If she doesn't have diarrhea...

it could just be a fissure that opened up.  I would see the vet, but it's probably nothing serious.  Let us know what they say.
