I've spent most of my weekend trying to figure out how to make a smelly dog smell better. Old Dawg (almost 13) has chronic skin problems and lately has been smelling like...well...I can't even describe it. We've been to the vet ($$$$$$$$), bought lots of different shampoos (more $$$$$$$$), bathed her every week, and she STILL STINKS. Today I spent about an hour on the internet Googling "Smelly Dog" and my search came back with lots of possible solutions. I won't bring them up here since many of them aren't fit for friendly conversation. Suffice it to say that Old Dawg will be visiting the groomer this week for another bath and some "adjustments" to her hind end (those of you with canines will surely know of what I speak). And if any of you out there have other creative solutions (we'll have no pound talk!), by all means please share. Our noses (and the carpet) will be most appreciative!
I've been trying to figure out exactly where I'm going with this thing called a blog. I'm so envious of you out there who actually have a flow; a direction; a raison d'être. I truly can't wait until "Wordless Wednesday" and "Thursday Thirteen" - at least I'll know where to begin on those days. All others will definitely be a crap shoot - I could go most anywhere. So for those of you who chose to read this mess, please bear with me. I promise to proofread (as best I can); to stay away from certain dirty words (insert any and all here that you may or may not have used one time or the other); to have an open mind and be respectful of others' opinions (within reason); to be honest and fair, friendly and helpful, considerate and caring, courageous and strong...wait a minute...that's the Girl Scout Law (and I was never a Scout!) Aw heck, you know what I mean - I'll figure it out one way or the other and I'm sure I can look to all of you to keep me in line. In fact, I'm counting on it!!
