    Default What's with the cow pies?

    My dog Shadow had a slight limp after training yesterday. It was fine this morning. I gave him the day off but let him tag along with me while I set up this morning. When just moseying around he found a fresh cow pile and rolled on his back in it. Then began to eat some. I stopped him and took him to a closeby pond for a couple of happy bumpers in the water.
    Then we resumed setting up and Shadow found another cow pie and repeated. I cleaned him off again and put him on stakeout.

    Rowdy has more discreminating taste as he prefers horse poop.

    My dogs love them. I love on 24 acres and have a few cows on it so I have to keep tabs on them at all times. Nasty bastages.

    Try rolling and tasting one and maybe you'll know, then you can let us know what the hub bub is. LOL

    LOL! Just yesterday we were out training in the Nat'l forest. The Chessie got to a huge pile of Elk scat that was still green and steaming. Oh boy! He took a bite, rolled in it for a bit then another snack! His collar was covered in it as well as his back and neck. He smelled awful (he thought it was great)! I insisted that hubby bathe him before he could even go into his kennel and gave Ralph my shampoo. When I went out to the kennel later the new smell almost knocked me down. Now he smells like a French House of ill repute!!!

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013
