That's normal with pups and their immature digestive tracts. The longer stool sits in the intestine, the more water is extracted from it by the intestinal walls. The first stool to come out is the oldest, thus it's the dryest. The later stool hasn't been in the intestine as long so of course it's more watery than the stool the dog first eliminated.

Make sure that you are feeding large breed puppy food. If her poops seem too gloopy, you might want to change her food in a couple of months. Natural Choice has a new lifestage available for large breed dogs called young adult (ages 6 months to 2 years- teenagers) in the shiny blue bags. It's 100% guaranteed and improves skin and coat... ^_^
