That stupid dog, whom I love....
I think that is how I might start every dog post from now on. I wonder if "whom" is grammatically correct. I'm sure one of the grammar nazis that I count among my friends will be glad to chime in about that.
Today the kids and I took the dog on his daily walk. At one point, Chevy stopped in the middle of the road and laid down. I first thought he might just be enjoying the warm concrete under his back, but then he started wiggling his back around. "Does he have an itch?" I wondered. Unfortunately for me, no, it wasn't an itch. Chevy had found a large splat of fresh bird poop and was rolling around in it. Totally gross. It turned his collar white with green smears.
I've seen him do this several times before with deer poop and Sydney said he's also done it with dog feces. What is that all about? It is totally gross. Did I mention that yet? Totally gross. What innate sense in dogs tells them to rub the feces from other animals into their fur? And why on their backs? I guess I could understand if he wanted to smell it, but roll in it? That's just...(wait for it)...totally gross.
