Blood and/or mucous in a dog's stool is never considered normal.  The seriousness of this depends on the cause.  Having enough intestinal worms (roundworms, hookworms) can cause this to happen.  Other disorders of the intestinal tract should be investigated as well if a stoll specimen check doesn't show any worm eggs.
