I believe it's stuff leftover from sawing meat.

I'm a little confused about the sawdust as well. Why are you adding it to their food? Is it the meat shavings like Harrise said or are we talking about actual sawdust (which is a common filler in some low-quality dog foods).

Being in heat is known to cause a loss of appetite in some dogs. As long as she is still drinking there isn't much to worry about.

However, between your maids giving her people food and all the treats in between, you're probably spoiling her rotten, so her plain old dog food just isn't doing it for her anymore. What puppy food do you feed her? You may need to look into switching to a higher quality kibble.

It's a husky thing... you wouldn't understand.

I've only had one time with one dog that I felt a need to entice him to eat. I used chicken broth poured on the food and mixed it up by hand.
