A Gold Medal Performance

Since my misery always seems to cheer you people up, I took your advice and took the kids to the park for a long walk so they could run. And, because they hate me, they both made a beeline for a pile of deer shit and engaged in synchronized shit rolling:

As you can see, Lily is fond of the full facial camouflage job, while Rosie goes for a little mask and some racing stripes. Don’t tell me they didn’t know what they were doing and it was instinct. Look at that look on Rosie- she knew what they had done.

If anyone had overheard me giving them their baths I would have my dogs taken away: “Quit your damned whimpering, the water isn’t cold. You know what you did. Suck up and take it like a man. I’m not the one who rolled in shit. This is your fault. That shivering isn’t fooling anyone. Asshole.”

    Heh. Rosie knows what she’s done for sure. Just look at that look on her face. Lily just looks as happy as can be. “Look, John! Look at this wonderful crap I found to roll in! Isn’t it great!”

    No doubt Tunch will appear shortly to remind you why he’s far superior to these canines. He’d be right in this case.

    I’ve never had to take a shit-covered dog anywhere in a car, how is it done? Our dog used to like to run across the street to the cow field. My experience with deer shit is that it’s nasty, but it is really no comparison to fresh cow shit. Our dog was a dalmatian, and she would come back covered so that she was green. She ended up dying of mange, I don’t know if the cow shit rolling had anything to do with that or not.

    My fav’rite scent,

    (Lookin innocent).

    We may have to bathe at the end of the day,
    But it’s worth it my friend, just to hear John Cole say:

    @demo woman: Old instinct regarding scent masking. You roll in something stinky and it hides the scent of dog so it makes sneaking up on the prey easier. I can see how that behavior would turn into a joyous occasion for a puppeh.

    @demo woman:

    I don’t remember who posted it, but it was something to do with dogs as descendents of wolves disguise themselves with forest scents, which include shit and dead stuff. Cats, as descendents of big desert felines, need to be as scentless as possible, so the best evolution for them was to clean themselves constantly.

    Something like that.

    So, Handel and Deal are dead heat. Any predictions?

    And let’s not forget the rummage through the daughters’ bathroom trashcan, just in case it was that time o’ the month.

But what’s interesting, according to the polls, is that Deal has come from several points behind last week to one or two in front of Handel (all within the MoE, of course, so neck-and-neck). They’re both so awful, I keep wondering which one would be better (from our perspective) as an opponent to Barnes. Or maybe it doesn’t much matter.

Dad took her down to the creek to wash her up, but we had a 70+ mile ride home with cow shit dog…

    Yeah is that kinda like Old Spice for male humans — disguises predatory and stupid scents under a facade of olfactory misdirection: “Hey babe, I am cool, I smell nice and took the time to put this on so I must be at least willing to be nice.. ”

    Actually I think its cool. And while cats don’t do it exactly like this, they do roll onto their dead prey (mice and such). They also celebrate the kill way more than dogs — throwing it up in the air, biting of their widdle heads and leaving parts of carcasses around your house. Barbie’s Dream Van is just not the same with a dead mouse in it and a little girl screaming “what’s that!”. My cat Buddy has on two occasions left dead voles like fine silver place settings next to his food bowl… Looking at his face after my discovery, I definitely detect a very fine sense of irony in those half closed, lemon colored eyes…

    Long ago in the 20th century, I spent a winter in a lakeside cabin (student rental) with 3 friends and their dogs. Picture this: a freezing cold night, a log fire blazing. Enter dogs, who lie in front of blazing fire and then cabin begins to fill with fish-stench. Dogs had found a dead frozen fish on shore and rolled in it, thinking obviously ‘ooh, eau de poisson mort – mais oui!’ So time to sort out the scents – which is worse: dog poo, deer poo, or DEAD FISH???

    I have known many a dog in my time, but never a dog that rolled in or ate shit of any type. Sniff it closely, stare at it, continually come back to it, yes. But roll in or eat it? That dog would be on the leash, trotting next to the car as I drive at grandma speed all the way home. I’m willing to bet that would solve the problem. But short of that, I hope you carry tarps in you trunk, Cole.

    Larkspur says:

    I once knew a delightful little Jack Russell Terrierist – I was not his designated human companion, but I often dog-sat for him. His actual human daddy used to love to go abalone diving, usually on the very day the season opened. He’d bring the abalones home, clean ’em on the driveway, bury the guts in garden alongside the driveway (OMG, the garden with the most beautiful, sturdy, luscious basil bushes ever), then go in and wash and prepare the abalone steaks and feed them to a grateful circle of friends.

    Why he did not anticipate a Terrierist attack (I swear there was a memo: “Cute pup determined to dig up foul nasty rotting innards in 5, 4 ,3 ,2….”) I do not know.

    But dig ’em up he did. Oh, that little Jack Russell was so thrilled! He rolled and rolled and turned green and scampered up to the little girls in the household, and was delighted at the fun game of them running away screaming. Finally dad managed to grab him. Three separate consecutive baths finally got the odor. Jeepers, I wish there had been video. I’d watch it every Christmas.

    Dogs are different from us. Please note that they endure nauseating odors like Old Spice or Garbage Pour Le Homme or Glade intermittent crop-dusting devices without biting us. They must wonder why we essentially roll in that shit. Spa Fresh Lavender-Cypress Dry Spray-on Oil? Holy crap, sez the dogs, they’re at it again. Oh well, la-di-da, they’re our humans and we loves them lil knuckleheads.

    I believe you ought to engage the services of a bona fide dog walker every weekday. Perhaps one could be found who would accept tomatoes in partial payment of his or her fee.

Working-class dogs are gleaners.

    Anne Laurie says:

    @Efroh:

    What’s with the poop eating, I wonder? What evolutionary benefit does that get you?

    Serious scientific explanation: Cat guts (and people guts) are relatively inefficient at nutrient absorbtion. There’s a lot of left-over nutritional value in cat turds and… that of many omnivorous species, as well. Dogs are natural gleaners, whose digestive systems are perfectly happy to make use of second-hand calories, and they are therefore natural, committed shit-eaters. Training dogs, even highly intelligent professional assistance dogs, not to eat shit is one of the most demanding tasks in the repertoire… it’s just way way easier for us non-professionals to keep the shit away from our canine housemates than to convince our housemates that the cats’ litter box isn’t a canape server.

    One the other hand, despite the Victorians’ Tarzan fantasies, it’s quite probable that dogs started hanging around people in the first place because a band of humanoids produces enough excrement to qualify, in canine terms, as an open-air buffet. The less choosy wolves found they could make a pretty good living mooching off human middens, and the partnership went on from that starting point.

    It has to do with the ads somehow. If you disable ad blocking or set your internet security to a lower level you can see all three in every browser.

    This is also the case for the feed(using Reader).

    Hasn’t the Dog Whisperer covered this issue?

    Your misery does make me giggle. Sorry.

    I giggle even more thinking of you being locked up in a car with them. Again, Sorry.

    Alter your perspective. Lily and Rosie look utterly blissed that their dad took them to the park and hid a pile of deer crap just for them so they could treasure hunt. This is going to make their top ten list for the year. He even took photos for the Christmas newsletter!

    And then dad goes bonkers and bathes them? Sheesh. And schizophrenogenic.

    Also. Too.

    Could be worse, in northern Wisconsin they choose bear shit. There is nothing, NOTHING, worse than that! Your tirade to the dogs sounds just like mine and yes I use cold water from the hose and a pressure nozzle is helpful.

    Defnitely goose shit. Deer shit, as I recall from my scouting days, is actually small shot-sized pellets; That’s not nearly as fun to roll in as mucky, gooey goose shit. My beagles have gotten into it before and it is absolutely foul. As a bonus, we were right next to the river but they refused to go in so I could wash them off!

    Needless to say, the park is not my favorite place to walk the dogs anymore.

    @LanceThruster: Oh, bless your heart. I was feelin’ kind of invisible. I’m hypersensitive like that.

    Meanwhile, I understand that the worst, foulest poop in the world ever is, in fact, python poop. (Pythons only poop a few times a year.)

    But somehow, I think dogs rolling in python poop is an unlikely scenario. I picture me and the dogs running like hell, screaming “Pythons! Holy crap! Pythons!
