Can Someone Pass the Mouthwash?

I skipped the gym this afternoon to come home and help the husband stretch some wire. He planted sorgram in the back pasture a week ago. We haven't had any rain so he was surprised to see this...

So we needed to fence off the pasture to keep the cows from uprooting the new growth. Of course, the husband does most of the work while I take pictures. I really like this deal we have goin'!


He was running to both ends of the stretch. Good thing it was a short one!



But then he cracked the whip and told me to get to work. I needed to clip it out. He grabbed the camera and said he would take a "photography" break.



You can see from the expression on my face, my body does not take well to manual labor! And Pepper can't believe it!


This is why I don't work like this. Hello! The dogs even know it's bad for me and I need lovings to get thru it!


But her breath smelled like butt and she wouldn't stop kissin' me. And Zena had to join in.


After I managed to get them off, I finished up my duties. I could still smell the butt breath on my face when I looked up to see Pepper eating cow crap. Argh! Why must she share her cow crap kisses with me?
I can't resist puppy love but maybe she could chew on some mint leaves next time....I'm just sayin'!

Just be grateful that it wasn't roadkill skunk!!!
I used to get roadkill kisses all the time... and started carrying a little bottle of Listerine with me when we were out workin' the pasture.
*URRRRRRRP*!!!

Too cute! Your hubby got some sweet pictures. I love it when dogs attack you with kisses like that...it's like the more you laugh and tell them to stop, the more determined they become to get ya! ;)

Ba Ha Ha LOL!! That is to cute!! Thanks for the laugh!! I know I always envision my dogs into something bad when they try to lick me!! Good way to protest by the way LOL!! Hubby got great pictures!!

What loving doggies! My friend stopped last night, with his dogs. They prefer to bark over giving kisses. But I bet their breath didn't smell much better anyways! Next time just tell them they have to help the hubby. It might deter the loving! At least for a few minutes.

Oh Pepper...you dirty little jack you. Your susposed to eat the cow shit first THEN give the kisses.

I really love the last photo, he really captured a moment there.
The ending, very funny.
This whole story is like a clip out of mine & my husbands life and roles of putting up fence, so familiar

That is just tooo funny! =) Puppy breath is just wonderful until they begin supplementing with 'natural' additives. *bleck*
Well, if I encounter something that smells like butt, I'll start looking for your puppies. =)

The dog we got from the humane society ALWAYS has horrible breath. I think it's probably worse than cow crap!!

Our stuff surprised me too as we have had barely any rain. They planted the soybeans not even a week ago and I went back the lane yesterday and theres little leaves everywhere.

Thats ok. I woke up this morning to Savanah licking her butt. I yelled at her "quitcher butt lickin!" and she gave me a snort and a growl and took off down the stairs probably to go lick her butt in mom and dads bed hehehe. She woke me at horse feeding time with a bunch of kisses....euuughh.

Jamie said...

Well at least it's cow crap and not her own crap like our little Gus does....Seriously drives me nuts! For the record...The Husband isn't a 1/2 bad photographer.

Why do dogs love crap from other animals? I just don't get it. And I'm thinkin' THAT's a good thing!

lisa said...
