well I have considered myself one of the blessed ... Tillie has always had awesome poops and I have never had to deal with the dreaded butt baths ... until TODAY!!
Okay, I was all excited for my day off of work and made all of her veggie puree for 6 weeks this morning (3 hrs) and then it was time for a walk on this GORGEOUS fall day! 67 degrees, light breeze, leaves falling down like rain all over... ideal. dream of a day.
So we set out ... about 6 minutes into our walk she decides to make a pit stop to pee. okay, no biggie. then a few house down she decides to POOP. she NEVER poops on walks... I was mortified, I didn't have a bag, was looking around helplessly .. no help. soooo, we walk another house, when I look down to discover Tillie has a 'dangler' .. no biggie, as I'm trying to knock it off a lady comes out and asks if I need a poop bag, of course I said YES and thank you!!! Then I look back at Tillie to discovered that she did NOT take care of the dangler and instead proceeded to SCOOT her poopy white butt all over the freaking GROUND!! omg.
Lovely. so now she has poop everywhere, all smeared into her backside, tail, she has it down her back legs... what the heck!!!??? I can't help but wonder if maybe her anal glands expressed or something like that?? this has never, ever happened before...
Anywho... so there went our ideal, beautiful walk... sigh.
So, I brought her right back home and at first attempted to use wipes... but it was already mostly dried on... and everywhere. so, I hook the leash to the garage door knob so she does NOT follow me into the house as I set up the sprayer to clean her backside ... went back out to get her and she had jumped into a chair nearby (with poop on her paws) and LAYED DOWN. blech.... sigh ... sooooooooo.... today was a surprise BATH DAY!! LOL I was planning on stretching her bath out for another day or 2, but there was no going back after the poop smearing... soooo, now she is clean and fluffy, smelling GOOD (not like POOP) and I need to go clean up, cause even though SHE is clean, the chair, and the bathroom are NOT! LOL
okay. thanks for listening to my rant.
