It was a BAD day for Bran the Border Collie! The farm truck has a very distinct odor. It isn't horse, sheep cow chicken or turkey .....although, I guess in truth it was possibly all five. I can, without hesitation prove that the air freshener that can turn a rancid room into a Spring garden and a trash bag filled taxi into a perfumed boudoir doesn't work in our truck !!! Bran STANK ! The dog is a farm dog and I acknowledge that the farm is not the place for a clean dog ....BUT !! Bran will roll in the manure pile and lie in the black smelly pooh/pee soup . The fecal mess congealed in his tail, glued to his legs and collected in the hair on his tummy and he was just getting worse by the day. On Tuesday a very reluctant Bran was bathed, in the sink with warm water and soap. The snags and pooh balls were hacked out of his tangled coat and Bran the Border Collie was NOT Impressed. Just to add insult to injury, he got a blow dry. The resultant sparkly clean, scalped canine now smells of.....just dog ! Poor Bran.
