chocolate butt

setting the scene...
it's monday night.
billy had hockey and got home around 9:00.
neither of us felt like cooking so we threw in a frozen pizza.
we both poured ourselves an adult beverage.
then hopped up on the counters to chat.
18 minutes later the timer goes off.
the pizza was not done.
the cheese was hardly melted.
we left the pizza in the oven cook longer.
10 minutes later i open the oven and it barely seems warm.
i turn the temp up and it starts getting hotter right away.
the pizza cooks another 10 minutes.
finally, after 45 minutes of cooking the darn thing is done.
(note to self, call to get oven checked out)
we sit down to enjoy our gourmet meal.
i eat one piece of pizza.
then i notice gus is not anywhere to be seen giving us the "please feed me" eyes.

this could mean one of two things.
he is sleeping on the couch (not likely).
OR he is laying somewhere with poop stuck on his bum.
i go looking for him and find him at the top of the stairs.
he has watery eyes and looks sad.
darn it...
he has a poopy butt!

poor gus, his hair grows so quick that this tends to happen right before he is due for a haircut. (which is scheduled for this coming monday)
i pick him up, bring him to the bathtub and start spraying.
billy comes up and is all EW, it smells SO gross in here.
asking - does gus have a chocolate butt?!
he then says, how about you go eat your dinner and i'll finish bathing gus.
um, yeah i'm not going to be eating the rest of my pizza.
the smell and the sight of crap stuck on his booty has made my appetite go away.
i let him take over with the scrubbing of gussy's bum though.

i cleaned up our dinner dishes and put the leftover pizza away.
then i got to enjoy the show gus puts on once he is out of the bathtub.
he acts as if bath water puts crack in his system.
he goes insane.
tearing through the house.rubbing his face on the carpet.
rolling in circles on the towel.digging up the blankets on the bed.
his heart was going a million miles an hour.he finally laid down on his big pillow, under a blanket and crashed.
billy decided to put some of his manly smelling shower gel on gus so now gus and him smell the same. if only there was something to do about gus' death breath! ;)

So funny! Our dog does the same thing when she gets out of the tub. She goes crazy! And we got her these little bones at petsmart that are minty and help her breath. You could try that for gus. :)

bananas. said...

BWAH!!! my pup bodie does the same thing after a bath. it's hilarious! he'll roll around and rub against everything but the best is when he rubs against the couch, we'll see the couch pillows pop up one at a time as he rubs across the bottom.

dogs are the best.

ps. chocolate butt...LOL!

Savvy Gal said...

LOL poor little thing. : ) xo

Marian said...

Ahhh, my pup does the exact same thing with water. Its hysterical. He's a few pounds heavier so when he rolls around in the best, he kind of pushes me off, but its so cute nonetheless.

xoxoxox

Lindsey said...

My dogs do the same thing after a bath. They run around and act crazy. I wonder what it is with dogs and baths?!?!

Heather said...

Hailey {HRH} said...

Those Magic Slippers Will Take You Home said...

lol Aw! that used to happen to my poodle Twinkie! atleast he didn't scoot his booty across your floors hahaa! i had to clean a choclate booty and chocolate floors!

Whitney said...

Aw, that happens to Big sometimes too. Thank god though that I never have to clean his poopy butt. I die.

Sarah Rosemary said...

Oh no! Poor puppy! At least you came out with a funny story ;)

EyesToTheSkye said...

Haha happens to my puppy too, unfortunately. Although, the after bath craziness can be settled down by blow drying (I do it on low, cool) til they're almost dry and then the craziness doesn't last as long. lol. All dogs must be against having wet fur cuz both of mine go NUTS after baths if they're not blow dried.

Annie said...

Poor gus :(.....He must be embarassed!

Wonder what is up withthe oven?!? Ours quit working last week...I convinced myself that we needed a new one...I tried one more time for good measure, and it has now been working fine ever since?!? WHO KNOWS! I will put off buying one until it is a MUST!

jennster said...

Kentucky Blonde said...

haha, poor gus! my dogs - dexter and reggie - a combined weight of 235 pounds (!!) get CRAZY after baths too! well, they get showers because they would DESTROY a bath! it's like too horses storming through the house!

Dezzy Lou Where Are You said...

My dogs also act like complete basket cases after they get baths

Trina said...

Ha! Poor doggy! LOL

♥Aubrey said...

Haha...a TOOTSIE ROLL :)-
This story reminds me of the game you play at a baby shower...where you melt the chocolate in the diapers and have to sniff them to figure out which is what. GROSS!!!

I'd definitely be done eating my food after that. What a story to share...made me laugh!!!
Have a wonderful day hun.

OceanDreams said...

Chocolate butt made me think that he actually had that on his butt, lol! Ha ha glad you solved his stinky butt, hope you get rid of the breath too! Ha ha! Too funny!

Iva said...

hehhehehe funny! :)

Sarah Ann said...

Well as gross as that is, I think its really awesome that he isn't one of those dogs who goes and rubs his butt everywhere after he gets "chocolate butt".

Alison said...

Oh hahahaha my dog does the exact same thing after she has a bath! It's SO funny!

She has short hair though so she doesn't have a "chocolate bum" problem! Too funny!!! :)

mommywonderland said...

Well, I will never look at chocolate the same..EVER! This happens to my Mia right before haircut time...at least gus puts on a sad face..mia just scrapes her bum all over! Cute story lady love!

Connie said...

Brittany Ann said...

Why do dogs do that after baths? It's so bizarre!

Tania-Dreams2009 said...

Kristin said...

Did the hubs put Axe on his chocolate butt? Ah ha ha

Live, Laugh, Love said...

Chocolate butt is a nice way to put it. In the first pic he looks like a wild animal.lol. Hahaha. "death breath. " i think they make some kinda of doggy treats for bad dog breath.

Jax said...

hahaha! My pup goes bananas after bathtime too! And chocolate butt is a hilarious term! That sometimes happens to Gracie with her long fur too!!!

Lil' Woman said...

lol...Mia is crazy once she gets out of the bath too..I would gag if I had to clean up chocolate butt.lol

Molly said...

hilarious! poor little guy...my baby of the human kind pooped in the bathtub yesterday. i feel your pain!

Selma said...

Funny! I'm so glad I don't like chocolate ;)

Mitzi G.!! said...

That is so funny; we have short haired dogs so no chocolate butt for us:) Our dogs do however act like the dog shampoo had crack in....they both run CRAZY around the house after bath time as well as after they have doggie ice cream....maybe that one is from doggie brain freeze though!

katie + bret said...

Hahaha NICE. Oh the joys of puppies :)

Amy@My Front Porch said...

Chocolate butt! I love it!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm glad you're following!

Your family (including little Gussy :) is beautiful!

aLena said...

OMG I just got Deja Vu' ... I deal with the same problem wit my baby girl beLLA LoL

I don't give her haircuts cuz it always seems short anyways but we definitely have to give her butt trims every 2 weeks or so to prevent this kinda drama lol

She goes just as crazy after baths ... especially if I try to blow dry her after ... I'm telling you, there's something in the water lol

drollgirl said...

chocolate butt is sure a nice way of putting it! ugh. i have a cat that has major crap issues. it is disgusting. SIGH.

Gwen said...

Poor Gus. He didn't want to have poopy butt either. Baxley does the same thing when he gets a bath at home. He rubs his face all over everything!!! That's why frequent trips to the groomers are a must. :) XOXO

Rasha @ and this is what she said... said...

haha cuteeeeeee.

Jules said...

Aw, Gus is such a cutie and you're a good puppy mommy. Poor little guy...you made him feel all better :)

I hope you're having a great week!

Naturally Caffeinated Family said...

misscindee said...

awww gus is adorable!! its so funny when animals are soaking wet. my dog looks like an alien when i bathe him =P

Hayley said...

Fluffy dogs are so cute- but way too much maintenance for me! Well, okay, all dogs are way too much maintenance for me, now that I have three kids.

Chocolate butt- I'm going to start calling my kids that when they poop.

Abby Kreck said...

Kerry said...

A Real Housewife said...

Too cute and so funny! When my dogs have a "hanger" they freeze and won't move till someone picks it out..........SO GROSS!!!

The vet told us that the bad breath was due to bad teeth. I know this sounds ridiculous, but getting their teeth cleaned by the vet solves that problem.

DREW'S MOM said...

How cute is he?!?!? Adorable... definitely a good way to lose your appetite though =)

Perfectly Imperfect said...

poor gus!! i think bath's make dogs a little nutso! mine all go crazy too!

eilee.findlay said...

Our Murphy a Shizu/Bichon always has this problem. Even right after a grooming, if we give him something different like a new treat (Little ceasars/cheese) he gets poo stuck in his bum and all around his little hind end. He usually hides under the china cabinet but sometimes will come to me and cry until I notice. Greg (husband) is the bum washer. A sprayer attachment and baby shampoo and he is a happy guy! So much for the pet store lady who says we should "change up" his diet all the time so he doesn't get stuck on one food! SHE doesn't have to come and clean his BUTT!! Ha!

Canada - 81 years Believe me losing weight is not so hard that everybody mention. You can lose at least 3 lbs. a week I swear. Some of my friends tried it and they got results similar to me. So don't worry that it might not work for you. Phentermine diet pills can cure obesity well. It is an oral-prescriptive medicine with high efficacy. Doctors advice for starting the use of this drug is compulsory. There are many companies which provide online consultation for Phentermine. Qualified medical professional related with these companies can prescribe Phentermine according to physical status of an obese. Phentermine online consultation can save you from embarrassing condition of waiting in a clinic and people curiously looking at you. Many individuals, having learned to exercise and avoid excessive calorie intake, are controlling their weight.
