Can I still love my dog after this?

I decided to be really nice to Gryff and gave him a huge steak bone to clean off. He ran into the yard and was chewing on the bone for a while. I took it away when I thought he'd had enough. He should worship the ground I walk on.

Next, we play in the yard. We have a great time. Then Gryff decides to run into the woods which always ticks me off. It is filled with Poison Ivy and I have a hard time getting him out. I don't know what on earth he found, but he thinks it would be just grand to roll around in it. It was green and smelled like the worst poop EVER! I can't even (or don't want to even) imagine what it was. It was all over him!

I just bathed him and he's running around the house like an absolute total maniac now. At least he doesn't stink.

LOL!!

Gryff is a little fur monster, I am sorry you had to deal with the stinky smell! I hate to say it but that type of crazyness is why I love the breed so much. Tito and Carmen drive me nuts sometimes, but its always fun.

Ivy, I'm just guessing that he was so greatful to you for such a grand day that he decided to bring present home to you. .
I know how their rolls in the wild can stink!!!
I guess you still gotta love him,

It gets worse! I told my DH about it and then he went to give Gryff a kiss on the nose. Apparently, I didn't get all the nasty smell off. I thought he was going to deck me! Back into the tub for Gryff. Luckily, I only had to wash his face. I can't begin to tell you how bad whatever it was smelled. Ugh.

Oh, we have been there and done that around here! He and Brady really are a lot alike. I guess that was his way for saying "thanks mom"
