Blood in stool is much more common in dogs than humans and is not always a cause for major alarm. 12 hours of no food followed by rice and boiled chicken is the standard treatment my vet recommends. then I had yogurt. If it continues long term it could be IBS which is common in older dogs. It can be pretty cheaply treated with metranidazol in most dogs.
Anytime we feed our dog anything outside of his usual beef and salmon diet, diarrhea ensues. Any kind of poultry is the worst for him. You have to gradually add any new foods a bit at a time (think: spoonful) into his regular food if you want to give him more variety so he as time to adapt; then monitor closely. He had a dehydrated pig ear the other day without issue. He was supposed to gnaw for days, finished it in a thirty-min don't-even-look-at-me session.
Ps. OMG, he's so cute :) if the blood persists, have him examined if you can.

Cute dog, but [b]OMG I CAN SEE THROUGH HIS STOMACH TO THE GRASS BEHIND HIM[/b]
I would say more liver, mashed up in white rice. Helps with my cats anyway.
Kefir has worked wonders with my dogs when they've had seriously bad diarrhoea and nasty gas (both ends).
But if it lasts more than a couple of days, or he's not himself I'd take him to a vet.
My boy was off colour and refusing food and I left it for a couple of days to see if he'd come right, turned out he had a twisted spleen and nearly died.
One of our dogs started having diarrhea several times a week a few years ago. We switched them to a grain free diet, and the problem went away completely. I don't remember the brand we use, but can check if you're interested. Our cats are now grain free as well, and are much healthier - better coats and fewer hairballs.
With bloody stools, I'd definitely get the vet involved, too.
