Our little puppy is approximately seven and a half pounds. He's just a little fella. But oh my gosh!! Sometimes, he really stinks!
We first discovered this on Sunday. When we met the woman from the rescue, both this pup and his brother smelled a bit. She explained that they had both pooped in the crate on her way to meet us, but she had cleaned them up as best she could. After picking up the puppy, we started the drive home. Going up I-5, I had him on my lap, but he was getting a bit restless. Shawn was driving, but he said he didn't mind if the puppy came over to him for a bit. After a couple minutes, I looked over to see the pup standing with his front paws on the door, his back paws on Shawn's arm....and poop landing on Shawn. And it just kept coming! Neither of us could really believe that a dog this small could possibly have that much poop! We got off at the next exit and got a bunch of napkins from McDonald's to clean it up as best we could.....but the smell in the car for the rest of the day was nasty!
We've also discovered that this little pooch farts. A lot. Often in his sleep. We've talked about the possibility of keeping candles nearby or getting heavy-duty air freshener. If nothing else, I seriously may need to start keeping a book of matches around. It's almost impressive how strong his bodily odors are.
We still haven't 100% decided on a name. Maybe we should call him Stinker.
