So Frat Boy has this thing for bear poo. I don’t know why but he INSISTS on rolling in it. I thought we’d broken him of the habit until yesterday. Youngest and I were on a hike with him and he came running out of the woods covered in brown gunk. STINKY brown gunk that turned out to be bear poo.

Seriously, NOTHING smells worse than bear poo. Nothing.

Except Frat Boy after he rolls in it.

So we did what any girl would do. We ran home and pretended we didn’t notice so that Alpha Man had to bathe him…

  1. I thought dogs’ sense of smell is hundreds of times more acute than ours…what’s wrong with Frat Boy? He needs to get tested. LOL. Poor Alpha Man.

  2. Bear poo must beat skunk smell. How in the world do you get rid of bear poo? Smart girls you are!

  3. Smart girls! Isn’t that part of the Alpha Man job description? Dealing with stinky things? And scary things? And fixing things?

  4. Oh look how happy and proud he is!! I wonder why dogs love to roll in stinky stuff? They’re goal is to cover their back in Eau de Pew! And yes their sense of smell is much stronger than ours, but I’ve never seen a dog avoid what we consider to be a bad smell.

  5. It seems like the right thing to do. lol Hope your back is doing some better. Take care.

  6. I hope that Alpha Man was rewarded very well for having to bathe Frat Boy. Positive reinforcement is a good thing. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Nice to see two quick-thinking, level-headed ladies handle a crisis with a well thought out solution! Alphas are handy to us ladies in so many ways!

  8. Not even skunk? You are SO bad leaving Alpha Man to wash Frat Boy. I’m hoping that since Frat Boy is a lab he likes his bath. Otherwise, I am picturing Alpha Man completely wet and covered with dog shampoo.

  9. I believe rolling in obnoxious substances is the way to cover their (dog’s)smell so they avoid being eaten or so they can catch prey. Of course, our domesticated dogs don’t need to do this but the instinct is still there, unfortunately.
