It makes me popular when it comes to cleaning skunky dogs, and very unpopular if I invite a skunky dog indoors because I don't know they have been tagged

dog poop is the worst!

And I am glutton for punishment...I had two boston terriers (gassy beasts), and a few weeks back I went to buy hay only to find out the people I was buying hay from were boston breeders....I came home with a little girl.

It took me almost 6 months to house break my 4 year old, opie when he was a pup:/ I am sooo hoping my girl etta is a little smarter on that front but we will see.

Etta came in the other day after eating horse poop...had the **** texture of horse poop, but with the dog smell- I was amazed.

I ENVY the fact that your dogs whine when they want out. My oldest will sit at the door, but as for whining none of them have figured it out...

That smell wakes me up in the middle of the night.
I can sense it from rooms away. Disgusting.
And why, oh why is it ALWAYS on the carpet?

I think the only surprise worse than that is opening the front doorto greet four BC's and that other smell hits you right between the eyes; SKUNK!!! Usually I will wake even from a dead sleep the moment I hear that skunk scream, or whatever one calls that sound they make. But it is the pits when for some reason you missed it and you open that door and that smell hits you and you know what you'll be doing today. And if there's one thing my four hate more than a normal bath it's the skunk treatment bath.

Oh my bbb, that is one I've not experienced. Pretty thankful for that. YUK.

GH, I'm calling you next time I have one get skunked. The last time it was a horse...wet skunky horse is equally as bad as wet skunky dog.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

ugh dog poop smells bad but what about when your cat has a upset stomach throws up AND has diarrhea in your room and of course....on the carpet.

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

Why in the name of all that is holy would your dog pop it's anal glands on your pillow in the middle of the night? That is so sick, I can't even imagine and certainly hope to never have any experience in that area.

As disgusting as the poop on the floor experience was, it wasn't the worst smell in the world, in my opinion. Cat urine is. My Heaven's that is such a stink that it literally takes ones breath away. It makes me physically sick. It is what has kept me away from cats for so long. I had an experience with a cat that had urinated in a friends house. Up until then, and several years after that, I refused to get a cat. One day while volunteering at the shelter I was in the euthanasia room when the brought a cat in to be put to sleep. I picked up the little card that had info about her. It said the owners were going to be having a baby and they were afraid she would bite the baby. I decided to give her a chance and figured, if she peed even once in the house or bit, she would come back but at least she would have one chance. I had her for 8-9 years and she was wonderful. She was the only reason I allowed a second cat in the house after she passed. One of my Rotties LOVES cats and I got her mostly for him. They sleep together on the bed all the time. He needs his pet kitty. ha ha

As far as the dog poop goes, my dogs are also 100% trained and never go in the house. This was an unusual situation and the poor boy tried like mad to wake me up to let him out and I yelled at him to go lay down. I can only imagine how uncomfortable the poor guy was. I felt really bad for him. I felt a bit bad for myself while cleaning it up but truth be told, I had it coming for being too lazy to let him out in his time of need.

If anyone that has dogs do not own their own steam carpet cleaner... heed the warnings of others on this thread. It can happen to you. ha ha

Consider yourself lucky.. The same thing happened to me a few years back except my husky puppy was kept in an oversized crate at night. I woke up to an absolute nightmare. By the time the smell hit my nose, I had already opened the crate door.. Damon went on a running spree through the house, covered from head to toe in the diarrhea he had been rolling around in all night. When I caught him and picked him up at arms length, he started peeing.. It went all over the kitchen including the stove and counter tops.

I have no idea how I didn't puke. The crate was so big that I had to take it apart to get it out the front door.. It was completely covered, top to bottom with poo. On top of all of that, it was snowing.

I was so frustrated that I ended up crying! It's funny now that I look back but OMG.. That is the most disgusting thing I have ever had to deal with.

I am sorry but that made me laugh. I have been silly enough to grab a puppy in the winter as well. Every time I was out there in 2 foot deep snow saying "go potty, go potty, go potty" I reminded myself NEVER again. ha ha
