I got this very funny photo of a totally shameless Oliver this morning from Madeleine. Oliver is Smudge's litter sibling.
I have heard of this 'Dog Shaming.' The funny thing is that you can't shame a dog, as you can see from the look on Oliver's face in the photo.
I emailed Madeleine to say thanks for putting a smile on my face when opening my emails this morning and told her a tale about one of our dogs eating our children's poo.
that is so funny. I have heard of the 'dog shaming' thing.
I have a tale about dogs eating children's poo.The Summer I gave birth to our third child, Florrie. In that Autumn it was very warm and as our second child, Alfie was coming 2 years old, so had just come out of nappies. One afternoon he was outside in the garden with his older brother, Bert and they had been playing with water and were naked, as it was also very warm. I was just inside, in the kitchen cooking and then Bert ran in a little stressed (He was around 3 and 1/2 years old) shouting, "Alfie, pooed Mummy." So I went outside expecting to pick up a child's poo, but all I found was my old boy, Smidge sitting where I had been directed that the poo was, licking his lip with a distinct odor de child poo on his breath. Bert thought it hilarious that Smidge had eat the poo and that is one of Bert's first memories, Smidge eating his brother's poo.
Thanks for that, certainly made us all smile.
