So yesterday, we went to the park. It's enclosed and Holly was behind a short hill. There were Golden Retrievers retrieving....and other dogs playing. For a moment...only a moment...Holly was no where to be seen...and then....out from behind the grass hill is this white dog...who is black from tail to head. As she ran to me...the smell was something like riding on the 5 freeway near the feedlots...people took their dogs away...the place cleared out. When I recovered enough to figure out what to do, I took her to the car and wrapped her in a towel. Driving to Unleashed which has bathing tubs, I had all windows open. Holly hung her head. When we got to the tubs, the store cleared out. They asked if I wanted rubber gloves. 2 hours later and many, many washes later...she smelled ok...and after applying 'Spa Purfume for Doggies' even better. She's been 'real good' today.... Anyone else's doodle roll...in stuff?????
