Oh No! "That Smell"

In life we learn many smells that we identify within a second of it hitting our noses. The smell of Pizza, cake etc... Then there are those other, less pleasant smells that we also recognize immediately. The smell of thrush in a horses foot, the smell of infection in a wound or an abscess. Each one of those are very distinct and can often be observed from afar.

There is also a smell that is recognized all around the world by animal lover's and non animal lover's alike. It doesn't matter what type of food is fed or how old or young the dog is. Dog poop is that smell that every one on this planet seems to know the second it wafts past our noses.

This morning upon waking, I was struck by "that smell" Always pleasant waking to such a horrendouss odor. I sat up in bed and thought... "I knew I heard my dog whining in the night and should not have just said "GO LAY DOWN" while squeezing my eyes shut. Now, I will pay the price for ignoring a dog with gastric upset. Sure enough, I followed my nose to 2 LARGE piles or rather puddles of diarrhea. How is it possible to make such large quantities? How did this dog not implode from the sure mass inside his gut? Obviously he tried to tell me that this was going to happen so I have nobody else to blame. All I can say is "Thank you God for Steam cleaners" I can't imagine life without my Carpet cleaner.

Now... Hopefully this is the last time I ever have this experience again. Want to bet next time I drag my lazy butt out of bed to let the dog out when he whines to wake me up?

And... How is it that all dogs poop smells pretty much the same? It doesn't matter what they eat, what size, shape or color they are or what country they live in. That smell is that smell.

There was a guy I worked with whose clothes always smelled of mildew and when he walked by I'd wrinkle my nose and hum.

LOL Now I will be huming that song too. Hope I never have to smell it in my ho use again. I mean, as a pup... yeah but as an adult, even worse. My dogs are very very potty trained and never have accidents but I guess the gastric upset was too much and his lazy mom wouldn't wake up to let him out.

Thank God I didn't step in it, this stuff was gross. As if there are levels of gross when it comes to something that is over all gross. Ha ha

I know that smell all too well. Come home from work one day and it hit me as soon as I opened the door. Poor pooch must have had an upset tummy because he is 100% house broke. It wasn't even in piles. It was just liquid all over the kitchen floor. Needless to say, he no longer gets leftovers after dinner lol.

Yeah--a bad smell. I'm glad my dogs are outside-the cats live inside-they are excellent about using the litter box.

Ugh, yeah dogs are the worst. There isn't another smell as bad as dog poop or my hubby's hunting dog's farts, I swear that dog is rotting from the inside out.

Gotta love it when the mutt has been eating horse poop and has an accident indoors. Smell matches the visual effect of the green poop. Now I will not be having another piece of toast with breakfast. Thanks.

You should be grateful that you can suffer the smell of poop and farts, I would gladly take them, if it meant that I could once again smell puppy breath, hay, saddle soap, baby powder, fresh laundry, coffee brewing, toast, any of the good things that you take for granted.

I have no warning of poop mine fields being left, or that the pot on the stove was left turned to high and is now burning, I don't know if the fish I'm about to cook smells fresh or not.

Yup, I would take the bad smells if I could get the good ones back.

I didn't know your sniffer was broke GH, I can imagine that could make some things pretty tough (like the cooking example) I would be very sad to not be able to smell coffee brewing, that's awful :(
