"White Dog, go see momma," Steve commanded as they both came in from the yard. White Dog trotted in and sat next to me in the shadows next to the computer desk. "Show her!" Steve said nodding for me to look at my precious white princess. I looked down as she looked up with her most winning Eskie smile...and gasped! "What happened to you?" I asked as I surveyed her mottled neck, blackened ruff, clumpy leg fur and matted shoulder. She tapped me to ask for a treat. Quinn came in and stood next to Steve; both of them stared at White Dog and shook their heads. (Quinn was perfectly clean)! Then I got a whiff..."You smell like a garbage dump," then, turning to Steve, "What did you let her get into?" Steve put up his hands in self defense. "White Dog was helping me plant the tomatoes and I harvested some of the compost we have been brewing all winter. I spread it out in the yard and thought I had raked all the "chunks" out. Apparently I missed some really good stuff because the minute I turned my back a certain White Dog was rolling and wallowing in it like a prize-winning Kansas hog!" Quinn woofed so that I would know he was not the White Dog to whom Steve referred. So THE White Dog was carried (at arm's length) and unceremoniously bathed in the tub to rid her coat of the compost as well as the stink. To show her dissatisfaction after, she shook out her coat all over Steve and sprawled full-length and damp on our bed pillows.

hey Siku Marie and Quinn,

What a way to show your humans your dissatisfaction about getting a bath, Siku Marie! You are a very funny girl! I think playing and rolling in compost sounds like great fun and I gladly would have joined you! I think next time you need to teach Quinn the fun of rolling in compost! ;->

Ugh, bahts are SO not fun! I'm not sure what it is about the compost but Sierra loves it too. Well done, Quinn. It must be a girl thing, right?!

Oh as cats we hate baths! Kirzon is the one who gets them sometimes but he is the same way - straight to the bed and the pillows while wet! We don't think rolling in compost sounds too fun, but we do know that doggies like to roll in the stinky stuff sometimes! We have to wonder if it was fun enough to make up for the bath though!! We hope it was!

Baths are not so bad because you get to get the crazy zoomies all over after it is over. :)

I wonder why dogs love to wallow in the stinkiest place they can find. Oh well, at least you know she had fun!

Thank you for greeting me. Mother's Day is a celebration we have adopted here. Last Sunday I was extra weepy knowing that my baby was not there anymore. Its hard finding the reasons why things like this happen. But, I try to take it one day at a time.

Hi Siku - Ollie and I would have gladly joined you rolling around. It sounded like fun - NOT the bath part.

I hope your Mom had a great Mother's Day in spite of that incident.

Hugs and yips,
