Dogs love rolling in smelly things...preferably something that's a long time dead & decaying! Our dainty little tibetan spaniel is no exception. She finds an 'interesting' smell and rolls in it like a little fat golden ball with 4 legs sticking up in the air. The following 'horrible smell' cleaning tip came from another dog site:
WHEN YOUR DOG HAS ROLLED IN SOMETHING SMELLY.
This even works on skunk. I didn't believe it until my very hairy German shepherd tangled with a "kitty". Here's what you do:
1. Using a spray bottle and bottled lemon juice, spray the dog and rub into the coat. This will help break down anything greasy or oily that may be in your "mystery stuff".
2. Bathe the dog with your favorite doggy shampoo.
3. Get out your bottle of mouthwash (I am not kidding).Rinse the dog with mouthwash, let it stay in the coat for a few minutes, and then rinse with water. Dry the dog thoroughly.
Good luck! Soon your pup will be smelling much better!
