Disclosure: I am bringing this post to you through my partnership with Cottonelle, their new Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Cleansing Cloths, and sharing the news about their #LetsTalkBums campaign.”
The rain returned to our area of the Pacific Northwest on Thursday, September 5. Rain sucks. Thunderstorms suck. But it’s kind of cozy too, right? You can smell the rain coming in the air and I thought it would be a good idea to head out to the woods surrounding our home with the dogs, do a short trek, take in the nature, and then make it back home in time for dinner and before the thunder.
I timed it perfectly.
What I didn’t include in my plans for the evening was the big pile of dog poop. All of a sudden, the pre-rain, damp woods didn’t smell so pretty. It smelled like dog poop and I knew. I sighed. Then I leaned against a treat and lifted one foot. Wow! Then the other – WOW!!! And then I looked at my dogs. Tandem poops? Because I know this isn’t just one of you.
I stomp back through the woods, repeating “nature is beautiful; nature is beautiful” while the dogs dance around me yelling “what are we doing to do next?” and “why do you smell like dog poop?”
Cleaning dog poop from shoes…
We have a hose with a spray nozzle and I smiled when I saw it, because I’d have the poop off my white shoes in no time. Then I’d toss them in the washer for good measure. What happened was that I angled the nozzle incorrectly and sprayed dog poop all over myself. I got the shoes cleaned up, then stripped down, in the rain so that I didn’t carry dog poop into the house. Everything went into the washing machine. I went into the shower.
3 questions I found annoying when covered in dog poop…
- Why would you spray yourself in dog poop?
- Is that why you’re so upset?
- Are you going in the house now?
3 thing I would have liked to hear when covered in dog poop…
- That sucks, how can I help?
- Go jump in the shower, I’ll make you some tea.
- I’ll go get the Cottonelle.
Granted, I would have still felt the need for a shower even after wiping my hands and face and neck and arms with the Cottonelle, but the gesture would have been appreciated since I was covered in dog poop.
