I came home from work yesterday. Hubbie was already home and both doggies had already been out in the yard to do their business. I thought I smelled something rancid. I smelled Sadie around her neck and she stunk. I thought she probably rolled in something yucky in the yard. Then I smelled Pooh Bear, same smell. I tried wiping them off with a wet wipe, but no help, very stinky. I decided to let them back out and follow them. Usually they will show me what they were into if I follow them. They went behind the shed and delicately were sniffing something. I came closer and there was a dead rat! Ahhhhhhhh! They must have rolled on it I guess. I called hubbie out and he disposed of the rat. He said it looked like a baby rat. I'm sure there are more under the shed. I hate mice and rats. Needless to say both doggies got a good bath. They both smell great now. Today my goal is to get out behind the shed and pull weeds and clean it up back there. It is a mess and that might be attracking rodents.
