Sometimes my occasionally timid dog comes in from the backyard with extreme confidence, jumps up next to us, and we simply want to vomit due to the incredibly new and violently horrible stench he has somehow discovered and rolled himself in.
I do my best to clean the area where he's rolled once I can locate it. The source of the stench has been anything from:
- his poop
- poop of other dogs
- dead frogs or lizards
- dead worms
- stinky area of the lawn that might have once been poop/frogs/lizards/worms
- mystery stench source
He tends to do this either immediately after his first bathing (requiring a second, and at least one time a third, bathing), or if it has been a long while since a bathing, which indicates it is time for his first bathing.
Why is he torturing us like this?
