I can talk about her because she’s asleep right now. She looks like an angel such a sweet girl she is. She’s one of those extra special dogs. I call her Lassie sometimes because she’s so darn smart. Now the bad news. She use to eat cat poop, I did a post about it awhile back. She had a terrible habit, she would wake up in the middle of the night to feast on cat nuggets which I think she began to see them as her own personal snack stash. Navar said ” why not give her that small joy” plus he didn’t have to clean the littler box out as often. I said ” eew no way! ” So we built a fortress around the litter boxes. The first couple of days it was sad to see her nervously pacing back and forth within a few days she was free from her kitty poop addiction. But as life has it she discovered she could eat her own poop in the yard. Which makes for the worst breath known to man not to mention her farts. Nothing smells as bad as old dog farts. Navar asked the vet can it hurt her if she eats her own poop he said “no dogs are scavengers and really the only problem with it is that the owners don’t like to think that they have a poop eating dog.” That’s true. We walked out and I was thinking I can’t believe he called our dog a scavenger. I guess you have to pick your battles this one I’m still fighting. My dog wanted some blog time but I don’t think this is what she had in mind. I better post a cute picture in the next few days.
