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.
