Well, it was only a matter of time. I have been busy unpacking boxes for the last week, and my Mastiff decided to jump in the little pond we have on the property while I was busy. Boy, she was so proud of herself as she stood at the sliding glass doors reeking of swampy, leafy, water. There is supposed to be Koi in there but I don't know if they have much of a chance, poor things. Why do dogs like to smell so awful? Sigh.
If you find out the answer, would you let me know? My dog has only been to the beach a few times. She was in hog heaven each time. She was especially pleased the time she found some rotting fish and crab to roll in. Eek. Needless to say, she wasn't nearly as pleased by the ensuing bath.Quote:

Yeah, and luckily for me she is a short haired breed. I toweled her off and in desperation ran an old dryer sheet over her (I know, I know...it was probably bad). I think it helped. She just looked so happy about the whole thing, that it was hard to be mad. She has been through a lot of changes lately and misses her 2 labrador buddies so I am cutting her a lot of breaks. It's quite funny to bring her to the dog park as she is such a giant pussycat and the other dog owners look horrified when they see her size. I was quite proud of her when she passed the "new kid on the block" test and let eleventy billion small dogs, big dogs, etc. gather round. Unfortunately none of them spoke Spanish....
I love dogs, but cats (at least the ones I've encountered) Always smell nice and fresh
Finley always smells like clean laundry hanging on a line in the sunshine. I love it when he curls up next to me in the morning - I bury my face in his fur and enjoy the last half hour in bed before I have to start my day.Quote:

After I banned smoking in my apartment a few years ago, I couldn't tell so much with Mona because of her coloring, but Joey went from what I thought was white to an absolutely BRILLIANT WHITE - amazingQuote:
