how dumb can one dog be?

Post by rockridgecattle » Mon Aug 13, 2007 11:56 pm

:oops:

How many times does a dog need to get sprayed by a skunk before they realize they stink? I swear she'll never learn. never fails each spring and fall...gets sprayed. Now add in the summer...twce in five minutes... then she comes and wants petting. ooooo go away :oops:

They apparantly htink that the smell is perfume. Only seems to bother them when it gets in their eyes. We used to get irrigation water (flood) every 10 days and our dog would get sprayed every 10 days during irrigation season.

Our dog got sprayed in the face and developed an infection in her lungs. She nearly died from it and after a week in the vet hospital, she came right home and went skunk hunting in the hay rounds.

I caught Coletrain limping toward the road. You would think that it would be the last thing on his pea brain.
I never trust anyone who says that they are too old to read a children's book.

It is said among old timers who dog hunt that when a dog gets sprayed and that smell in their nose they will keep going for it.

Their rule of thumb was...

Give 1 ars woop'n and if they do it again shoot the dog because it was too stupid to hunt... and definatley to breed.

Well, if ranching's so hard, why do we do it?

Brute 23, I dunno if all dogs get that way once the smell gets in their nose,
Our first dog got sprayed once, the next time he went after a skunk he stayed nose to nose. Never at it's rear.
only had to bath him once.
this one however makes her own way in life, and i gave up bathing her cause i just ended up smelling not so pretty

Husbands dog would find the freshest, greenest cow pie he could then would roll in it unti he was completely covered from nose to tail. Then that dog would want to sit by your side or be petted.

At least with the dog you can leave them outside unlike husbands. Mine has had to strip in the yard a few times. 2 different skunks. Peeyuu.
Think he has learned, OH, I forgot the one he hit the car with, both he and the son smelled of skunk. Son got sent home from school because of it. :roll:
So who is smarter? Dog or Husband? :D

Women and cats are going to do what they want, men and dogs would be wise to accept this.
