My husband and I were finishing dinner and watching tv and every time Topaz, one of the dogs, walked by we got this overwhelming manure smell. And it wasn’t like shit…like a fart or dog poop or something, it was like farm manure.
We could not figure it out. What the heck was that smell, and where was it coming from? We had a window open, so we closed it and it didn’t get any better.
We finally realized it was the dog’s breath…but omg, what did he get into that smelled like that??? I checked the backyard to see if I can tell if he’s been eating his own poop, or if some kind of animal (squirrel, bird…rat, even) was dead in our yard and he ate that…but nothing.
I fed him a little chicken back to see if that would help with the breath. I don’t think it completely helped, but it was MUCH better than it was originally.
When I went to bed I still smelled the manure smell. I thought that maybe it was his breath still, because he was sleeping in the room with me. Then I thought maybe this smell is stuck in my nose…like if you smell something so much then you smell it even when it’s not there.
I ignored it and went to sleep. In the morning, I STILL smelled this manure smell…omg, are we downwind of a farm or something?? WHAT IS GOING ON???
I thought maybe it was me…but I was freshly showered and shouldn’t smell like a farm. I worried about it all day, but didn’t smell it anymore.
While I work I thought about what the heck was going on, but when I got home I didn’t smell anything, so I thought…eh, maybe a fluke.
I needed to do laundry so I went to the bedroom to get some dirty clothes out of this pile on the floor and I smell manure again!!!
FINALLY, I look at this dog blanket we have on the floor…it’s got something on it…EW…cat poop!! Then I get a flashlight and look under the bed…NASTY CAT POOP!!!!
So the blanket is in the wash, the poop is cleaned up, and hopefully my house smells of manure no longer.
That’s my story…aren’t you glad I shared it?? LOL
