I was outside my neighbor's apartment with Abbey, my neighbor and her dog (Daisy from the other pictures). They were running around playing with each other, Abbey was digging holes in the dirt looking for moles and my neighbor and I were sitting by the citronella candle watching the hummingbirds.
Couple minutes later, I see Abbey do a body roll all over something on the ground! I thought it was goose poop, which is allll over the place, but it was a dead baby bird.. guts exposed!!
She stunk so bad, and I spashed some water on her and got some of the nastiness out before I took her inside, but ewwwwww. What do they find so fascinating about rolling over in poop/dead animals/anything nasty?!
That is hard wired behavior Justine. Scent camoflauge.
Sharon, Blaise and Diesel.
Blahhh. So stinky!! Worse than rotten eggs... She'll probably need another bath to get it out, even though I scrubbed her with nice herbal doggie shampoo.
I'm so grateful Sammi avoids really stinky things at all cost! Even her own poop, wants nothing to do with it
Sally found a dead bird once, and it was right after a big rain. So the dead bird was all wet and squishy. I, too, didn't realize what she was doing until it was too late. And this was at the park. I had to ride home with her in my car stinking like that!!!!!
