What is your major malfunction Whiskey?!?
We interrupt this regularly scheduled blogging to tell you there will not be a blog on a hike today, even though I think the backlog of hiking and parks is up to 5 now. Because all of my free time today was eaten up by Whiskey rolling* the left side of his face and neck into the sickest, grossest poo** I have ever seen and then me having to give him a bath.
A bath in the sense that I wetted and lathered him up outside the tub and then carefully manuevered his fat butt into the to HUGE tub we have that I have trouble stepping into (great for soaking, not for shoving 65lbs of “NO DON’T MAKE ME!!!” into…::grumble::). I was actually really worried I’d hurt his back right leg because it didn’t make it in with the rest of him. I mean it did right after that, but it looked painful.
So I don’t have time to write anything about a trail because I like maps and links and stuff. But I wanted to share this holiday time joy with you. Oh, and I didn’t bathe “all” of him. Just the offended part. I’m really impressed with how good he did. By good I mean that he became imobilized (once his back leg made it in with him) and stared off into space like I was about to rape or kill him. I felt bad about him going into the fear coma but it was necessary to “un-poo” him.
The least I can do is put in a picture of Whiskey in fresher times.
So to answer my original question, turns out Whiskey does not have a major malfunction. It’s perfectly normal and dog like to do this behavior. I just have to keep a better eye on him when he’s on the leash and near the poo….
