Dixie's views on rolling in it

Hi! It's me, Dixie!  I'm sure that you, my always observant followers, have noticed that I am wet.  That's right, I was forced to endure another unessential bath due to my mommy's olfactory hypersensitivity.  This morning I was delighted to find a pile that someone's owner forgot to scoop up, so I innocently rolled in it.  What self-respecting dog would pass that up?! Do you see what I'm saying?  Yes, I heard her say, "Dixie Marie, if you roll in that (insert empty threat here that I tuned out)..."  But there is documented proof that this is a natural behavior. Who am I to go against nature?!   Mr. Ron Kurtus, an expert in dog behavior, says that it's part of my instinctive roots. My roots! He claims that dogs rolling in it will "mask their own scent and enable them to sneak up on their prey without detection."  That's high level thinking!  She should be rewarding me, not putting me in the bath.  Anyway, now I smell like oatmeal and vanilla. Repulsive.  Hopefully one of the cats will hack up a hairball soon that I can roll in. Your odor free diva-Dixie

  1. If the cats don't cooperate and produce a hairball, maybe you should rummage through the garbage. :) She sure is picky, your mom!
