Smelly


Ugh, I am sorry about the late blogging today. I have been trying to discover the source of a vile odour in my daughter's bedroom. It stinks.

It reminds me of cleaning out the rabbit hutches as a young girl (we started with 2 and ended up with 27, rabbits not hutches)

With our mice probelm I thought, ohh ho. But it would have to be one big rodent to create a smell that claws up your nostrils and pervades the room.

Squirrel? Rat? But then I put my nose to the hand-made sunflower rug on her floor and BAM!

I do believe my youngest dog is having a breakdown--again.
Eaudedogpee a new fragrance by Canal.

Sooo... Any doggy psyches out there??? Ignoring bad behaviour isn't working for us, although I don't have to sleep in there...

  1. Make him a permanent outside dog?

  2. LOL--he'd chew his own leg off and howl. Not to mention the -40C temps...

  3. Could be ill, Toni -- maybe a bladder infection or something else causing him to lose control? Ugh, not a fun problem.

  4. Hmm--possible. He's got a vet appointment next week. Just need to drag the gold bullion out before I take him ;) Maybe he's worried about his mom ?

  6. Attention. Lavish him with lots of it. Everyone needs it somehow, dogs are no different, so give it to him in a positive form. My .02.

    We have dog odor problems, too. Skunk. And you can see *exactly* where dear gleaming white Tala was sprayed. A nice yellow patch on her front quarter. She's got the smelly dog blues.

  7. I've been giving him bones and hugs. Poor smelly baby. He's worse than the kids :/

  8. Oh dear. Not nice. Could it be a territorial thing? Is there rivalry with another dog?

  9. You'll definitely want to talk to your Vet about this one.

  10. When they get to a "certain age" as our vet said about our mini schnauzer when he hit 11yrs (we had to put him down at 12 yrs), there's not much you can do about it. Whatever part of the brain that tells that part of their body how to act, just stops thinking! Hugs for him, you, and lots of carpet cleaning & doggie deodorizer from the vet is in order. We put up with it for nearly 2 years, and once he went completely blind and deaf, he went to cross the Doggie Bridge to Heaven. I agree with Loreth Anne though - have him checked for bladder/kidney infection/stones. ((hugs)) Nothing worse, I feel your pain!

  11. Yeah--no, he isn't incontenant. He's marking a very specific target in her room. I think he's just got into the habit (somehow when we were away maybe?) and if I'm out and he's in, he'll start wandering the house and then think--yummy smelly (doggy tail wag) and do his thing.

    It's a mental thing not physical, I'm 99.9 % sure of it LOL.

  12. Hmm - simple suggestion... why not take the rug out of DD room, no rug, no pee?

    My DS's room ponged (no REALLY ponged) and I could not find where the smell was coming from, sometime later I discovered a carrier bag full of potato, onion and leek peelings in his wardrobe! The previous week I had asked him to put the peelings out and to put his football boots away and being 11 he only listed to half of the instruction......
