As I've been busy with work and family drama I missed the thread about sprinkling love on the food and WWPD. Lucy does get a dollop of home-made yogurt on her food as I believe it helps keep her IBD at bay. But it's just because I don't like cleaning up IBD diarrhea not because I love Lucy or any such nonsense. Well OK I also make home-made dog training treats (Salmon and/or Tuna blended with sweet potato or pumpkin and baked) but that's due to her IBD as well. No Love. nope.

or you could go to and click on "Some Lucy Photos" album and look at the last photo.

There was a certain amount of comic relief therein, but not so much that I'd recommend going back and seeking out the thread to read.

Of course not!
Harriet is not at all* treat deprived, so I'm not too concerned about sprinkling her food with love. (Take *that, Pfoley!) She probably gets more "love" in the form of treats and attention than is good for her, actually. Spoilt rotten, she is.

Harriet wants to know if you could not love her, too.

It finally worked. I think Yahoo was having some sort of melt down when I tried to look at it the first time.
Obviously, Lucy is much abused and unloved. Poor baby! And to think you said all those horrible things about the wee angel. As if she could ever even consider perpetrating such monstrosities. Also, whose Hmas present is she?

One lady was there with her two full coated Bearded Collies (IIRC her last name was Witte and she was ... darn clean Zeffie and the Beardie owner was setting up her grooming table to work on her totally filthy beasts.

Ha'! I've run into Ann and her beardies at a number of trials. I can definitely picture that. They are characters! BroomSandy

But there was Haiku! Which, admittedly, pretty well ended the thread.

Matt. Rocky's a Dog.
Overall, I think I'd rather clean sheep poop off a dog than human poop.

Sure. I'm just surprised that there's this heretofore- unmentioned epidemic of public pooping here in bucolic Ithaca. Who knew?

I was wondering about that as well.
Greta was fond of rolling in rotting dead animals, which was pretty gross. Fortunately the Siberians tend to be pretty fastidious.

That surprises me. For some reason, right after we got Tasha, we bathed her. We then went to the park, where she rolled in goose poop, and became green.

I was wondering about that as well.

Maybe there's a dark side to Cayuga Heights (Chris's neighborhood, which is the most affluent in the county) that's known only to people who live there. There's a guy who lives a few houses down the road from me who's a police sergeant there, and maybe he'd know.

They're pretty much never off-leash outside my yard so, to be honest, I'm really not sure what they'd do (even though I suspect they're a lot more interested in ingesting it than in rolling in it). Emmett has a great recall and on rare occasion I'll take him down to the big dog park by the lake and let him rip, but even then he's a lot more interested in eating the waterfowl than in frolicking in their poop. They do like to eat the most appalling stuff.

Well, I'm kind of curious, so if you ask him, please pass along the information. I thought perhaps there were a lot of hikers who were struck by urgent calls of nature, but still...

Tasha's never been off-leash outside a fenced yard either; she was on one of those retractable things when this occurred. She's not a poop-eater, but I'm sure she'd have been happy to eat what made the poop. I think in this case, the poop-rolling was a reacion to the bath the day before.

You know we've been wondering about that too. I can understand that sometimes people can have emergencies but four incidences in six months tells me that we have a Serial Pooper on the Cayuga Trial. I suspect if I hadn't been out of commission for 3 of those months (6 weeks from my herniated disk and another six weeks of jogging on the flat fields/roads of the Equine Park), Lucy would've met up with more Human Poop Piles with equally disgusting results. Hmm I never thought I would realize a positive benefit of my herniated disk.

I'm rather surprised at that - I seem to recall a website that talked about a variation on the Siberian breed - Mud Husky or some such. It had pictures of a Sibe after digging a huge tunnel and he was covered in mud from tippy ears to tail. And from your posts, I thought they were willing to eat anything. When I think fastidious, I think of Pablo who tip-toes around mud puddles, never rolls in poop, thinks dead animals are icky and is grossed out by a hamburger that is pink in the middle. Pablo is the result when dogs are civilized a little too far.

Right - http://www.geocities.com/Petsburgh/Park/1743/mudhusky.html.

The dogs like to dig, but in thinking about it they're a lot more interested in eating disgusting things than in rolling in them. My dogs groom themselves like cats and while they can get pretty muddy they really don't stay muddy for more than a few minutes once they're inside or in the car.

On the other hand, it's very likely that the owner of a Siberian is chronically covered with mud, dog hair, and miscellaneous effluvia.
