Is it National Poop Day or something?? LOL!
« on: January 17, 2008, 02:16:20 pm »
Well, here's some TMI for's only 10:30 in the morning, and I have already cleaned up about 10 piles of poo!  I am pet-sitting for one of my regular clients, and his little female Cairn (Gitchi) has the trots.  I arrived this morning to find disgusting little presents all over the house.  I spent  about 40 minutes cleaning them all up.  I was pretty sure that the diarrhea was stress induced because the carbon monoxide detector batteries started to die during the night and it was beeping and freaking her out....but because she is older and I didn't want to take any chances, I kept a stool sample and took it to the vet for testing.

When I got to the vet I asked them to run it immediately and sat down in the lobby to wait for the results.  A few minutes later a woman came in with a Boxer....and it too had the trots.  It pooped all over the lobby!  The office was very busy, and other dogs were freaking out and trying to get to the poo to smell it (dogs are so gross, lol)....and then only one person came out to clean it up.  It was too much poo for one person with all those dogs stomping around, so I figured I might as well continue the trend of the morning and helped them, lol.

When I left the vet I came home to take care of my own dogs....and discovered that Rio, our geriatric Black Lab/Beagle mix, had pooped in three places in our basement! 

By now I am imagining I smell dog poo everywhere, lol.  And though Gitchi's lab results were clear, I've seen so many pooping dogs today it makes me wonder if there is something contagious going around. 

This does NOT bode well for the weekend.  I have 5 client dogs this weekend.  That's 7 visits a day, in addition to taking care of my own 6 dogs.  And our high temp on Sunday is supposed to be only 7 degrees.  I'm going to be spending alot of time freezing my keester off walking little diarrhea dogs! LOL!!

Oh, soooo gross! I am not a coffee drinker (stay with me - it ties in...) but my hubby is. Whenever he makes coffee it smells like dog poo to me. When we had first taken in Tani, she liked to poop behind our couch, so when I woke up I had to check behind the couch right away because I never knew if it was or the coffee that I smelled!

That is a smell that gets into your nose and doesn't come out, kind of like bathroom cleaners.  Good luck this weekend and look at it this way.  If it is that cold, let it sit for a minute and it will freeze and be easier to pick up.
