Get Stinky



The downside of living on a farm is when your cats come home with something dead and your dogs roll in it.  I kept getting a whiff of something today that was awful; wondered what in the world it could be.  It came from different places in the house which left me looking high and low for the source.  I'm washing my bedding and sniffing around.  I finally realized what it was.  My weenies had rolled in something dead.  Nothing smells worse.
P.U.



The title of this gouache I painted is 'Rolling In Stink".  Now you know where I got the idea from.




How could the sweetest weenies in the world, Emmy and Sister, do such a thing?
Well, they  never met a turd they didn't like either.  They wouldn't know what a leash was for.
So goes living on a farm.  Lots of nasty things for weenies to get into.  As for the cats, I've never seen a cat roll in dead things.

  1. They look so happy when they roll in stink and come back in looking so pleased with themselves. It is a good thing weenies are easy to bath.

    1. Yes Doc, they immediately were bathed. I am still sniffing around though, for anything they might have laid upon.

    1. Finally got sister's insulin under control. It took a long time but she's pretty we'll back to normal. 2 shots a day and I still have to cook her meals since she won't eat the diabetic dog food.

  3. I get those whiffs usually at this time of year. Something has crawled under the porch and has died and the smell goes on for days until it disintegrates. Such is the cycle of life.

  4. Dear Donna - I know what you are saying my friend and I feel your pain or at least smell it (LOL). Love your gouache painting - makes me smile. Have a super day.

  6. My cat would probably 'play' with a dead thing but never roll in it! What IS that dog thing about wanting to smell like the worst-smelling thing they can find???!!!
