Best part of today's outing? When Margaux rolled in human poo.
Wait, did I say "best"? I meant worst. Yup, that was the worst. I couldn't even bring myself to look when R took her over to the pile to be sure she knew what she was in trouble for. But I'm also a lil pathetic; her terrified yelps when he dunked her in the creek to clean her off still sort of broke my heart.
Another awesome thing about when your dog's wearing human turds? Being paranoid that she's going to brush up against you for the rest of the day.
And why do dogs like to roll in turds, anyway? Google tells me it may be to mask her smell so she can hunt more effectively, but, hello Margaux: Humans are the most dangerous animal on earth. Masking your pathetic little 45 pound dog smell with the smell of the poo from some jerk who doesn't know not to leave his turds and toilet paper in the woods isn't going to help you catch a squirrel. It's going to make the squirrel think that you may be a human, so you may have a gun.
