Our Penny has a new parlour trick.
Each night as I’m going to bed I give her a couple of small biscuits. It’s part of the routine and can never be missed.
As soon as I’m in bed she jumps up on the bed, lies down and burps. Fine. My bed isn’t high society so burps are perfectly acceptable.
Lately however she has added a little twist to her routine. Now, when she burps she farts as well. I don’t know what it is about dogs but their anal emissions are particularly pungent. They’d bring a tear to your eye quicker than a sniff of ammonia.
After our little escapade on the stairs, Herself is stuck downstairs so has moved into my room. Initially she blamed me of course for the smell. I had to explain to her that the malodorous stench was in fact emanating from our Penny. So now the routine is that I go to bed, dog jumps up and Herself yells “Jeeezus your fucking dog has farted again!”. It’s funny how when Penny is cute and cuddly she’s our dog, but when she farts she’s my dog?
The only thing I can think of is her food which I changed a few weeks ago. I buy by the sack and the latest contents are little pea sized nuts, whereas previously they were larger. Penny loves either and will fill her face with a load and then deposit it on her couch where she’s eat them one by one. The problem is that the sack is only half way empty so we have got to suffer the farts for quite a while yet.
I’m not sure of the solution to the little problem. Either Herself or the dog will have to go until I switch back to the old food?.
I’ll make a bed for Herself on the couch.
