stinky dog stories
Ok, I just had to share, b/c I can't believe I have two poop stories in 24 hours. it's a little graphic...
some of you know, I have 3 dogs (never intended, but it happens) Kara, Anatolian female, 10 yrs old (140 lbs), rescue, Ollie, 3+ yrs old, 1/2 hav, 1/2 shih Tzu (17 lbs), and Oz, 2.5 yrs old, Anatolian male (white) rescue (90+ lbs), but got him as a pup, 9 weeks old.
yesterday, Thursday, my dogs get a professional off leash walk twice a month. I live in a pocket neighborhood, and it's the same dogs all the time. so it's for socialization. I guess they were off leash near a cow pasture. the dog walker thought they were in a clear spot... nope! Oz found a fresh cow patty and rolled in it, big time.
so I find this out b/c well after my dogs were home, the dog walker sent a dog log (note), via email.
I came home, opened my front door to a distinctive poop smell, but it didn't smell like dog poop. I was like, dude, I get to lift tails and sniff butts, lucky me!
then I got the email about an hour later. she hosed him off, but he freaked out a little (as I'm sure she did) and he wouldn't come to her, so she chased him for a bit. did I mention he's white?
anyway, today, I was grooming Ollie, combing him out and I repositioned him, and whoa! a poop/musty smell. I lifted his tail, and he had a good dime sized 3D nugget, that some how didn't fall off... and it was a little crusty on the edges, so he got a butt bath.
all butts are clean now.
I feel better to get that poop off my chest.
