Confessions of a Red Head

I can’t help it! It smells so good.

Argh…who stinks?

I could roll in it all day long.

Bathwater runs green.

Messy and smudged in my hair.

Brush, comb, conditioner, water.

It is tasty too. 

Don’t lick me!

So rich and flavorful.


I cannot help myself!

Why does she do THAT?!?!

part ii


Comes running, yes Mama?

Dirty dog!

Dirty? How can she say dirty?

You rolled in poop again!

I love this smell, don’t you?

Ewww…don’t eat THAT!

But it tastes good, I love poopsciles!

    Oh, goodness.
    When we adopted a rescue dog who had lived wild for some time, we wondered whether she would do this. No, she got into the kitchen trash can, and she ate used kleenexes for a while, but this is one bad habit she hadn’t acquired.
    Strange how some dogs do that, though. My parents had a dog who liked to roll in dead things…roadkill, etc.
    You did a great job with the temptation prompt, though. Good work!

      Thanks Kay! My husband says it s because she is a Border Collie and rolling in poop makes her not smell like a dog for when she is working cattle, I think she just likes the smell of poop. So happy you rescued a dog, all ours are rescues!
