Will Draper, DVM responded:
Definitely get this checked out. It could be something benign, like his/her body responding to some dietary indiscretion, but could also be inflammatory bowel disease, parasitism, colitis, or even some sort of more chronic condition like a growth- considering your dog's age and breed. I'd get it checked out by your vet as soon as possible...they'll know what to do. Best to you!
