Sure at THAT moment she was cute. She was letting me know that I hadn’t taken her outside to play yet, and wasn’t going to leave me alone until I did.
We went outside. I threw her ball around for awhile, watered my plants, rolled up my garden hose, straightened up my yard a bit, and then we headed back in.
When I opened the door, I was overwhelmed with a horrible smell.
(Oh come on, now what?!!?!??!)
I looked around trying to identify the smell and then it just seemed to go away. Shrug ok? I did some miscellaneous picking up and went into my office, now the smell was there?!?!?!?
I checked my shoes, clothes etc…what the hell was that? And then the smell was gone. Again.
Twenty minutes later the smell was in the living room, and then vanished just as quickly.
I played the “chase the smell game” for the next hour, perplexed that I couldn’t figure out where it was coming from……..
Finally, I sat down in the chair. Snuff came up to me to Nuzzle my leg so I would pet her. I reached down to stroke her neck and found the smell. Her neck was covered in dog shit. I know it’s cliche to say but “I ONLY TURNED MY BACK FOR A MINUTE!!!!!” (obviously that’s not true) Both of my dog’s are very well trained, well as far as staying in my yard, and usually under my feet, so of course I wasn’t watching her the whole time.
The groomer is booked today, and I’m in no shape to climb in the shower with her to bathe her, so she got the hose….. I suppose I SHOULD feel bad….but did I mention she is just too damn cute?
