Before owning dogs, I didn't realize how disgusting animals could be. Not that I was completely naive when I adopted them. I mean, I once saw a puppy do his little puppy business, eat it, throw it up, and then eat that...
But that was a one off, right? Just a confused little puppy.
Then we adopted Willie, our old, blind German shepherd, and... well, let me just say I thought our kittens needed a trip to the vet because the litter box was empty the first entire week we had them. But then Willie came up to me for a rump scratching and wouldn't you know it, there were flecks of kitty litter stuck to the wet of his nose.
DOGS EAT POO.
It's true, folks. They really eat poo.
Along with EVERYTHING else -- everything dead and smelly and disgusting, like telephone line-fried squirrels, and entire bags of potting soil that have been enriched with chicken manure. And when it makes them sick... well, they eat that, too.
Honestly, after five years with this dog, I didn't think there was anything left for him to eat that would gross me out.
Ha! Naive, I certainly am! Because today, folks, Willie reached a new low:
Half a bathroom-sized trash can full of 'em.
SHAME ON YOU, WILLIE.
Though, I suppose to be fair I should shame the cats, too. And I would, if they'd hold still for two seconds.
Their sign would say something like, I feed the German shepherd by barfing up hairballs under the kitchen table.
Shame on you, cats.
(Hannah, the resident chihuahua, doesn't get a sign because it would probably scare her, and then she'd pee on the floor. Again)
Have you guys discovered PetShaming.net? Yeah, it's kind of hilarious, and quite possibly my new favorite site. I'll spare Willie the world-wide humiliation by not submitting his photo.
Also, I'm a little glad I have my 4 dysfunctional pets, because man, some of THOSE pets are just too naughty.
Have a great Wednesday, folks!
Unless you are in Australia. In that case, enjoy your Thursday!
