In a bout of good timing, my daughter and her best friend have set up a dog bath service in ... if she had to deal with poop instead of just muddy dogs, she'd probably suddenly need to shut down anyway.

You kidding?
I bet she could have bilked Chris out of some serious cash.

Kid could have paid for college.

I have sold her for parts to the highest bidder.

Clearly, Dave is a saint. If a dog jumped into bed with me in the shape that Lucy was and ... gentlemen of the jury, that CHRIS is the poopyhead. Apparently another case of MBP. It is running rampant in rpdb.

Ha! That is Lucy's clever guise - sweet, so demure, butter wouldn't melt in her mouth. Don't be fooled. This is the Anti-Lassie (much like the Anti-Christ but more cuddly). When a friend of mine, Lindy, first met Lucy, she scolded me for talking bad about her. However after observing for herself a few of Lucy's nefarious deeds, she now agrees that deep inside that very pretty, dainty collie package lurks a core of evil.

After Lucy's bath yesterday she had to air dry as my Air Force dog hair dryer has bit the dust. I noticed in the mid-morning she was shivering slightly in her bed. She was so bravely pathetic that I got a old blanket for her. OK I covered her with one of our down throws but I didn't tuck it in. OK I did tuck it in but I didn't whisper sweet nuthin's or cuddle. OK I did give her a little scritch behind a ear and told her that I loved her even though she's rotten to the core. Behold the power of the Anti-Lassie:

Now this is the proper treatment.
Remember the T-shirt slogan - "Treat me no differently than you would the queen"
I have to ask though - did you pull that down comforter off the bed while Dave was still using it?

Four year old smooth collie *** free to a bad ... pleased with herself) and some poop rubbed off on him.

Stop slandering the poor beast! It is perfectly obvious that the divine and dignified creature in that photo would never do such things.

Beware! The Anti-Lassie ensnares another un-suspecting person into her web of deceit! Sure she looks like a charming little collie princess but this is one *** who's up to no good. Ignore my warnings at your own peril. It's too late for me.

I don't think I have enough in my bank account to pay someone to bath Lucy. Anyway, she wasn't just a dirty dog -she was a canine Haz-Mat situation. Afterwards I had to disinfect not only myself but my bathroom, the towels and her collars.

At least she's a smoothie!

Alice loves decorating herself in fresh cow pie (the greener the better) at herding trials. Move the steers/ big slide ... back into slop. Makes it hard for me to really want to hug her when she's done well. Broom Sandy

When I lived in CO I used to do herding with Zeffie (tri smooth collie). She was quite particular about what to roll in and thankfully cow & sheep crap didn't meet her approval. She vastly preferred well aged goose poop.
I remember once when we did a two day herding workshop. It had been quite rainy and the arena, pens and fields were a sloppy mess of mud and sheep poop. Zeffie didn't like to get dirty and she almost levitated over the worst of the muck. There was no way in hell she was going to do a down. One lady was there with her two full coated Bearded Collies (IIRC her last name was Witte and she was from Nebraska).

Beardies are bouncy and I swear that given the option, they always took the paths going through the biggest deepest pools of filth. They threw themselves into downs with great big splats. By the end of the day I loaded up my pretty darn clean Zeffie and the Beardie owner was setting up her grooming table to work on her totally filthy beasts.
Overall, I think I'd rather clean sheep poop off a dog than human poop.

It sounds like she's cut from the same cloth as Miss Brown (well, aside from the rolling-in-grossitude). Sweet and adorable on the outside, and eevil, manipulative genius on the inside. I, too, would have been helpless to resist the covering-up, the tucking-in, and the whispering of sweet nuthins. And the ear scritches are a given.
and told her that I loved her even though she's rotten to the core.

Hmmm. I wonder, if that would make up for up for not sprinkling love on their food? What Would Pfoley Do?

Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind- bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the drug store, but that's just peanuts to space. Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

No kidding. In another post I mentioned two bearded collies who had spent a day in sheep muck. Watching their owner, I learned you can't just get the hair wet, pour on the shampoo, scrub and rinse but instead you have to get your fingers into the soapy coat and carefully pick and comb out the trapped sheep poop.
So I should count my blessings that Lucy is an Evil Smooth Collie and not an Evil Bearded Collie.

Sure. I'm just surprised that there's this heretofore- unmentioned epidemic of public pooping here in bucolic Ithaca. Who knew?
Greta was fond of rolling in rotting dead animals, which was pretty gross. Fortunately the Siberians tend to be pretty fastidious.
